Hello from Washington

Hey all,

I have roamed these pages every now and again when looking up thoughts on this or that. I recently was roaming a thread on the k70 and could hardly get through the page without the page becoming too laggy with the background video ads. Ultimately created the account to avoid the video ads. Almost made me close the tab (sorry - being honest). Anyhow... I am here.

I currently shoot a Pentax K7 with a range of lenses in my arsenal. I have a Pentax Honeywell film camera that I love but rarely use. I recently traded in my first DSLR (Samsung GX-1L) for the Samsung NX500 on a Samsung promo at PIX2015 in Seattle. However my wife confiscated that from me rather quickly. I like the video on the Samsung but the feel of my Pentax. Hoping the K3ii will be replaced by something with better video capabilities.

A little on my photo background...
I took a photo class in college. Previous to the class, I thought that DSLR's were a waste due to the size and since point n shoots compared in mp. Well, I soon learned that the quality wasn't in the mp but in the camera/lens. Sure, I had some decent shots with a point and shoot but not compared to any of my dslrs. Anywho... Became the instructor's assistant prepping the darkroom and assisting in the digital darkroom when needed. I have used both Apple and Windows but prefer my PC's.

What I like to shoot...
I have shot professionally a few times but I typically shoot for fun. Mostly scenery and family but occasionally the random person walking by.

Welcome to the forum, good to have you and for you minus the videos...

I view this forum with Opera and it seems to have built ad blockers etc... so I've never seen other stuff apart from the forum.

Glad to finally be apart of another community. As passionate as I am about Pentax, I am proud to finally be a member.

I think I received a pop up stating to create an account to avoid the video ads. Not sure but the workflow seems to be a lot smoother now - no videos every few posts. I know Chrome has adblock as well but I am at work. Work doesn't like extensions.

And greetings from the Longview/Kelso area I have a spare NX300, very talented cameras. Too bad the NX line have been orphaned, plenty of potential going to waste in Samsung hallways.

welcome to the funny farm! I'm sorta eyeing the K70 as well but it's still a bit of an unknown, the K-S2 is nice as well in that general range too, might go for that one instead to replace my ancient K200D heh, so sit back, pop open a cold one and regale us with yer skills
