Hello to all,

My apologies, I'm a bit late in my introduction as I have posted on the beginners thread already. Long time Pentax enthusiast (runs in the family). I have an all black Pentax S3 film SLR, vintage early 1960's according to my Dad. The S3 was my Dad's staple family camera that he has left to me. It still works and takes great pics. Mechanical shutter hasn't failed in all these years... testament to Pentax build quality.

I recently invested in a new K-7 which I'm thrilled with. What a compact beauty. The K-7 doesn't feel a lot bigger than my S3, a little thicker in depth and height (marginally) but if you can believe it, the K7 is actually 5/8" less in width than the S3!

I'm not a digital techie so I'm having a few issues in uploading pics with photo resolution degradation of which I have outlined and have asked for advice on the beginners thread. Little bit of a learning curve for me to say the least.

Glad to be here and all the best to everyone,
