Hello All,

May I introduce myself as a new member.

Being a long time Nikon user in the film era (FM2, F801, private doka) I recently decided to restart my hobby after more than 20 years absence, with a camera from Pentax (K5 II) and some software to manipulate its output heavily ;-).

I'm looking forward to learn the ins and outs of digital photography. This forum is a wealthy source for all kinds of information so, that will certainly speed up the process.

From now on you will probably see some (stupid) questions at first, but I'm not a theorist and hope to show some of my photo's quickly before waiting for perfection. This is a great site.

Welcome aboard! You'll get good use from this forum's search function. I have been pleasantly surprised how I can dig information up.

I think Pentax's manual camera controls are pretty intuitive for an old manual film shooter - it will come back to you pretty quickly.

Welcome to the forum and good to hear that you took up your old hobby again!
I am sure the Pentax K-5 II will serve you good and here there is no stupid questions, just silly answers from all our quirky members

Welcome to the fold.

I hope your conversion goes more smoothly than mine did. Most of theories remain true only some of the math changes.

You will find a helping hand for just about anything you need here at PF.
