Hello to the forum,
I am 75+ and photography is my hobby along with RVing. I am a retired Marine and retired full time and not looking for employment.

I just ordered a Pentax K-50 camera and kit lens that is due to arrive on Tuesday. I have owned many Pentax 35mm cameras and a few Canikons in 35 and digital and well as a few pany and olympus digital.
My favorite was the Pentax ME Super in 35mm. 3 of my children took photography in high school using that camera and the camera is still in the family residing with the oldest grandchild.

I enjoy shooting pictures but I really enjoy the PP part of the hobby.
Looking forward to getting the K-50 and learning how to effectively use it.

Welcome Mike. You'll love the K-50.

You are obviously a more experienced user, but you might still find a few of these tips useful:
