Hello from Corner Brook Newfoundland

My name is Brian White,

I am a fairly new Pentaxian who has been dabbling in SLR photography since I started using my Zenit film 35mm camera in 1995. I even use my Lenses on my new K30 with a ring adapter, wide open of course. I also use an Olympus Pen EPL1 as well, not as often since I purchased my K30

I also started a Camera Club here in Corner Brook Newfoundland which boasts the best of the best here in CB amongst Photogs plus beginners and everybody in between. I'm somewhere in between . We have monthly meetings and frequent photo walks, plus an ongoing discussion on our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/cameraslaptopslenses/ .... Anybody local to Newfoundland or wanting to visit Newfoundland and meet some fellow Photog's are welcome to join the group of course.

I come on here from time to time and find it a great resource for Pentax information, of course between my Camera Club and my 3 Boys I may take awhile to get back to people.

Thanks for reading..... fellow Pentaxians

Welcome! Corner Brook has long been on my list of places to visit; I have family that spend part of the year there. And I'll add my voice to those urging you to post some images.

Welcome aboard. I am trying to get my hands on couple of the Helios lenses to try out on my Pentax K-20 and K-7 cameras. Please advise if you know sources. Looking forward to your posts on the forum.

I know this is probably not the right place to post a pic.... but thanks to everybody for the encouragement... here is my first pic, taken today. I had the camera club down at the water front practicing bird shots.



Hope you like it :-)

Welcome to Pentax Forums! I joined on November 4th and by the next day I had spent over five hours on it. I think you'll enjoy it.

Welcome lad. We have three main ethnic groups here in Nunavut - Inuit, white guys and Newfies. In a good year, a quarter of my staff are from The Rock.

Welcome from Conception Bay South, NL. Glad to know there is at least one Pentax owner outside of the St. John's area.
