Australians shorten proper nouns and add a vowel- not lengthen them so 'Penno' would seem more natural.

As a new Pentax Forum member, I was interested to see how members called themselves various names, the most common being "Pentaxian". Here is a humorous look at possible names for Pentax members from various countries around the globe:


Possible Pentax User Nicknames Worldwide
...
Poland – Pentoski’s
...
?
Pentaksiarz.
/pentack-sh-y-ash/

ending "-ski" is for proprietary / relating of something
ending "-a(rz)" is for profession/ occupation

end "x" is "ks", so if you already: Pentakski

The Czech Republic - Pentaxák . singular
/pentack-sack/

In polish ending "-ak" is for tools.... Mayby I am more Pentaksak as Pentaksiarz!?

=====
But I'm know that is for fun, so...

Poland: Pentajoke.
(pentax + polish jokes)

Maybe we should send this to Typos, Apostrophe Abuse, and Other Assorted Offenses?

I prefer "photographer"

The Pentax/Ricoh camera is a tool. A good tool. Hobbyists (me included) sometimes lose direction and focus on the gear. You should hear how my astronomy buddies lust for their dream telescopes.

Costa Ricans are self identified as "Ticos" or "Ticas" depending on gender. The Ticos are known throughout the Spanish speaking world for adding "ito" or "ita" to a name as an affectionate nickname. For example, Paul is Pablo and Pabloito is little Paul. So I recommend Pentaxito! The question is can you be a full frame Pentaxito?
