Hi to fellow Pentaxites

We just got a K1 (yesterday!) after having our K7 for ages - the K7 is still going ok but long exposures really show up a lot of rgb snow so the full frame came out just at the right time. We still have a lot of film stuff like our Pentax K1000 and a Bronica ETRS which doesn't get much use but just can't let it go. Mostly we use the camera as part of our art practice both in the works themselves and as documentation. Not really into showing stuff online but now that we have the k1 and the iPad Pro working together (with some hiccups which I will ask about in another thread) that might change as the whole process of downloading etc. was always rather cumbersome with the k7.

Really impressed with the k1 so far - doesn't seem to be able to take a blah image especially with the 31mm lens which was nice on the k7 but really shows off on this camera.

Welcome aboard, glad you could join us The K-7 was my first Pentax DSLR, and I haven't looked back since. The K-1 is a huge step forward - I'm sure it will serve you well

The K-1 is an amazing sight for so many of us who have waited for it to appear; it's great to see it catching on with veterans and newcomers. Welcome!
