Hello from Ottawa!

Hello from frosty Ottawa! I'm new to Pentax, my dad gave me his old spotmatic F at Christmas, a friend gave me a PZ10 he was given and I purchased a K-3 to replace a lost Olympus EM10. Been very interesting moving to the K-3 from the Micro four thirds world, the k-3 is a great camera!

Currently thinking of getting a standard prime for low light adventures, really enjoying the standard WR kit lens on the k-3! Also have a rokinon 8mm and DA 50mm.

Just shot a roll of Agfa Rollei IR film, will try to post some photos from it when it's processed.

From the k-3, our lovely dawg

Hello there,

Nice to see another Canuck join the Pentax Galaxy!

I could tell it's frosty out there. Just look the picture of your dog. Lovely expression on its face ... as if saying, "Hurry up. Then give me the toque."

Hi, and welcome!

Looks like you have three generations of cameras now. Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Hey, from just down the road near Algonquin Park.... over the years there have been a good number of Pentax users from Ottawa, enough to form a committee. But they all seem to be here today and gone tomorrow, or maybe they just aren't very social. As far as i know, there's never been a meet up. (YOU know one of those gatherings where everyone plays with everyone else's stuff. )

I love Algonquin park, you're lucky to live nearby! I've joined the group, I spend some time in Kawartha Highland park in the summer, I'll try to post some photos the next time I'm up that way.
