New from the Netherlands


My name is Eric and I am from Haren, near Groningen, in the Netherlands.
65 years young and started with photography with an Ensign box camera when I was 13 years old.
My first Pentax was a Asahi Pentax S3, bought used in 1967 from my saved pocket money.
I was 17 years old then.
Now I own lots of analog film cameras (Canon, Olympus, Nikon etc.) but also a few ME's, Supers, K1000, S1a, Spotmatics and an MZ5 and MZ7.
Searching the web I found this site. Hope to find other enthousiastic film camera lovers!

Hello and welcome...

My wife and I visited your country last year. It was fantastic, I want to go back. Very nice people. I was glad to be shooting Pentax on the trip as there was a fair amount of rain.

I think you will love this site, I have learned so much here.

Welcome aboard! A lot of us cut our teeth with manual cameras. The easy manual controls were a prime feature drawing me to Pentax when it was time for me to enter DSLR land.
