Pantaxian for South Africa

Hi,


Just joined the Forum, but I've been using Pentax for a couple of years. I'm a very proud loner in a world filled with CaNikons, but I do sometimes make my fellow Pentaxians proud with awesome aviation shots. Yes, my main interest is aviation, wildlife and sports photography. Never belonged to a forum before, but I'm looking forward to take my photography to the next level. Please be kind, as I will be sharing some photos soon.

Welcome. It's always good to see another member based in SA. Perhaps you should join the "Pentax Owners South Africa" social group here as well. While not very active, it is useful for information on suppliers in SA, as well as sales of second hand equipment within the Pentax Forum members group.

I hope you are a Pentaxian not a Pantaxian!

Welcome from another South African. PF is a great reference site for all things Pentax and photography in general. You should enjoy the forum company and almost everyone civil and constructive.

BTW: I like the blue hour image you posted above. Goes well with the architecture. I enjoy playing with blue hour shooting.

Looking forward to more posts and images.

Ah, you guys are all so sweet and that's why I love the Pentax family. Thanks for all the links and I am really glad to know that I'm not alone anymore.

Please forgive me Timd... "I hope you are a Pentaxian not a Pantaxian!"
I only saw it after you mentioned it and found that I can not fix that, but yes... I'm a proud Pentaxian :-D

I wonder if our members from the Lone Star State would prefer to be called "PanTexians."
