Hi from Chicagoland


I'm a young filmmaker and avid film photographer and camera collector. I recently started shooting with a Pentax Q and love using vintage D-Mount lenses with it. I'm thinking about getting a Pentax SLR, though I'm currently the happy owner of a Canon AE-1.

Welcome from a fellow Chicagolander.
We have a club on the forum here.
Chicago Pentaxians -

You can look at Craigslist and find some old film bodies, the K1000 with kit lens shouldn't cost much at all and is fully manual, making it great to learn the basics.
