Belated Introduction

Hi All,

Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is David, and I'm from North Wales in the UK. I'm mainly into Street Photography, and have recently bought an old Pentax MV, an old Pentax ME, and with them a Pentax 50mm prime, a Kiron 28mm prime, and a Chinon 135mm prime. I just love taking them out to shoot, and I'm really pleased with the results I get from this vintage gear - especially as I'm shooting 10 year old Ilford XP2 400 at the moment!

The old (though modest) glass is amazing, and is so clear when I look through the viewfinder, that I now prefer shooting 35mm film over my various DSLR's. Not having as many shots available to me has certainly made me think more when I'm out and about.

I'm hoping to get more sophisticated SLR's as I learn, and I'm always on the lookout for good glass.

Pleased to meet you!

David

Welcome, David.

Thanks for your introduction. It's great to hear that you're having a lot of fun with film and the 'vintage' lenses. Yes, the older lenses can produce superb images, either on film or on digital sensors.

Well I have quite a few pictures, but hardly any as yet taken with my Pentax 35mm cameras. Is it okay to put pictures in a gallery that were taken with another make of camera?

It is certainly OK. Many members here use different cameras.
