New to the forum

Just joined I am an 80 yr old retired police Sargent my wife had a Pentax k1000 that she had many years ago and had put away. I was a Minolta photo buff for many years. Tried several of the digital cameras and have a canon. I got tired of all the adjustment s and tweets of the digital. And decided I liked film and the simplicity of the Pentax. I can concentrate on composition.

Hi Sargrbd. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Many members here still love their film photography, so any help or advice you need is only a question away.

Welcome, you can also use your Pentax lenses on Pentax digital bodies, if you get the notion to switch later.
