hello from indonesia

hi Wiwa from indonesia..
actually, i left photography for a long time, and then pentax brought me back again somehow
once upon a time my wife craved an pentax point and shoot whe she was preagnant, she cried in the corner for no good reason
then i got intrested on how "underdog" pentax is, how pentax is not following the stream and making new good stuffs that somehow only few people only sees
how cool you guys are,reviewing every bits of pentax in detail
which then lead me to order a k s2 with the orange bottom from a friend in japan as a start. i got it for $470 new with kit lens,for the spec its a GREAT value
its hard to find pentax here in my country, if not overpriced
for some reason i love using old lens , and pentax bodies provides it.
too bad ks2 doesnt have pttl, but im using yongnuo anyway,so its ok i guess

and then i found an old camex 3000 (i belive its a chinese bootleg analog camera from the 80's) with k mount lens, 50mm f1.7, got it for $22 with the camera.
its filled with fungus, i managed to dissasemble it , clean it and chipped a little bit glass on the back of the lens ,,it still works somehow

here's a sample shot i took,at wide open with K s2 body, not that sharp but decent enough for beginners like me ,he's my boy btw

im starting all over from begining again,guide me please

well thats me,happy to be here

Hi Wiwa. Welcome to the Pentax forums. Your love of using old lenses on new camera bodies is shared by many members here. Hope to see some of your photographs soon.

G,day mate


The build quality and performance of many older lenses always makes them worthwhile to use.

i bought it i was kinda broke at that moment,but luckily i had just the right amount. it wasnt really expensive tho,
its just an pentax optio rz10, a green one. she didnt really like it to be honest.she just wanted it for some reason. want it badly
and then when my son grew to be a toddler he knows ammidiately that it is his camera , or maybe we're just imagining things
he uses it a lot now, when he sees me with my camera he also take his green point and shoot and follow me around

Welcome to the forum Wiwa! Be careful with the fungus and enjoy the 50/1.7, it still is a great performer.
