Hello Everyone

Hi, my name is Paul and I have been enjoying photography since I was 11 year old when I was taking picture with my Diana plastic camera back in 1967 at the Montreal EXPO67. I got my first 35 mm camera at age 14 ,it was an Exacta 500 NOS which I paid 60$ with my own money I made doing small jobs. 2 years later after working all summer I got myself the camera of my was a Pentax Spotmatic II which I paid 260$ tax included . I think that the Pentax of that era were “work of art” the design was just perfect nothing to add nothing to subtract. Ever since I have been addicted to Pentax exception made for my first digital camera back in 2000 a Canon Powershot Pro 70. My first Pentax digital was an istDL which I have replace since 2011 by a K5 that I really enjoy. I recently acquired a Pentax Q and I am amazed of what this small camera got to offer. I never been attracted by the “Dark Side “ even if all my friend and family are shooting with Nikon … The Nikon’s I would be interested in .. Well I could not simply afford them .. I have been a fan of this site and especially the Forum at least since 2006, but I guess I have been one of those “lurkers” watching all the good work done by others. There is so much knowledge shared on this forum it is just amazing. I usually find answers on my questions just by exploring the different post.Again Hello to everyone !
