Hello from San Francisco

My name is Alan Morris.

I owned one of the first Pentax SLR's with a mirror that returned after the film was exposed. At the time Honeywell imported the Asahi Pentax H3v.( purchased in 1963) It has a clip on meter and screw mount lenses. I still own it.
I recently bought a Ricoh GRii as my always carry camera. While I like to shoot with my iphone, I really like the use of the GRii because of its easy one handed controls and snap focus. I call it my EDC - Every Day Carry Camera.

Welcome to the forum, that's forever ago, sorry not wishing to make you sound old or anything.

But I didn't get involved with Pentax until the eighties and I'm ancient.
