Hi from rainy Portland

Hi,

Just want to say hi as new user at the forum. I have really done film most of my time doing photography for the nostalgia. I have finally decided to getting into digital now. Currently looking for my first digital camera to start. I have used mostly Nxxxx, Cxxxx, and Mxxxxxx, but had a friend who is total Pentax buff. After researches and my experience with K1000, I have decided to go with Pentax for my digital photography experience. It is too bad that I did not collect any Pentax lenses during my film camera time. Spent too much money, now have a small budget. I will be trolling the marketplace and looking for deals for Black Friday. Below is a picture I took a while ago with my Pentax K1000. Thanks for reading. Wish everyone an amazing day and a happy turkey day.

Hi,
I'm in Portland too! The weather sealing of our cameras and most of our lenses makes for a good match in our climate!
So I'm part of a meet-up group and there are a couple Pentax users - we often have meetings about using software for "developing" our pictures and also go to places like firehouses, waterfalls, and other places. Anyways, if you would like to get a sense of what the different gear feels like, feel free to PM me and we can arrange to meet. Another great resource to take a look at gear is Camera World in SW PDX - they have a great selection of Pentax gear and the sales people there are actually pretty well informed.

Good luck in your search and welcome to PentaxForums!

Thank you for all the warm welcomes. I will definitely check out the Camera World in SW PDX. I will love to meet people with similar interests if I can manage my weird schedules. Thank you all for your input and suggestions.

Three welcomes are required then, to forum, to Pentax (again) and to digital.
