Hello from Norway

Hello all.

New here.

I am not a pro, but likes film and vintage cameras.
Lucky me, I have my fathers Spotmatic with some lenses, he did buy the set in 1968 in Osaka.
So, it is my heirloom.
Love to learn more about vintage Pentax and try to get better using it.

Cheers all.

Hello & welcome - good to have you with us! What a lovely heirloom... We have many Spotmatic owners here on the forums, and plenty of people still shooting film, so you won't be short of company and support. Feel free to ask any questions as you go along, and we look forward to you getting involved

Thanks.
Well one thing for sure, I will ask.
What got me to start with film was simply, I did not have any photos to show friends and family without aid from a pc, cables and more connectors and so one....camera to pc, to TV and so one.
Why?
Lazy!
But, my father did have the albums, with photos, nice photos to!
Now, I say my skills are far from good, but I take better photos with these old camera than I did with the digital one. Slowly, one at the time.

I think the process of taking photographs with old film cameras does slow you down in what is very often a good way. I think it's more relaxing too

Hei og velkommen! Det er en håndfull aktive norske medlemmer her.

And there are a bunch of film shooters here. I'm not among them, even though I have some film bodies - some from back when, some acquired because I wanted the lens they were attached to... These film era lenses preform wonderfully on digital as well.

Good to have you with us!

Welcome to the forum. There are plenty of film shooters here on the forum. Tomorrow I plan to start scanning some film that I shot in July in your country (though not in a Pentax)
