In typical fashion, my love of Pentax started with my Dad. The earliest story that I remember of him shooting with a Pentax was in late 1960s when he was just out of university traveling in Argentina. He told me about being mindful carrying around something so valuable (both sentimental and expensive).

Years later after I had shown up, I quickly got comfortable seeing "Pentax" at the top of a camera as my dad documented my childhood.

He gave me my first Pentax DSLR *ist DS when I was roughly the same age as he was in Argentina.

Now I think my future kids are going to know the white "Pentax" on top of their Dad's Camera during their well documented childhoods. For the time being, I do know it's probably one of the two words my cat is familiar with.. The other being Tuna...

Hi James. Welcome aboard the Pentax forums. What a wonderful way to be introduced to Pentax.

I'm glad that you are keeping that tradition going with your kids.
