A new member - Hello

A few years have gone by since I first held an SLR, my late Uncle Jack's Asahi Spotmatic (which I inherited), and discovered photography. I purchased a K1000 almost thirty years ago and have been "dabbling" since. I got my *istDs in early 2005 and have a renewed passion. Thanks to LanceB for his referal to this forum.

Got my first Asahi Pentax in '66, after wearing that one out got a Super Program then got fed up with lousy processing and expense. Wife got me a P&S Optio 550, Photoshop and the joy returned. Am looking forward to a K10D sometime early next year. I know the feeling. Welcome I look forward to your posts and threads.

Welcome to the forum... I started out in the 70's with a K1000, then after awhile lost the inspiration. I'm getting back into it now and love the instant feedback of the DSLR, along with no fears of snapping LOTS of pictures!

Looking forward to seeing your work.
