I'm a newbie Pentax user

Hi all,

Just bought a Pentax K1 with 28-105 mm len and battery grip last Monday (20 March). A happy Pentax owner after my first use of Asahi Pentax Spotmatic during late 1979 - I'm showing my age !!!!

Now, I'm selling all of my Canon stuff - via FB groups and eBay!!!

Just to say Hi to you all and I'll browse for something interesting to add in for my Pentax camera especially the flashguns and lenses!!!

One more things, if I have a 10" tablet (Android) which is the best apps to produce a image from my K1's wireless as I was doing shooting with a client without touching the tablet?

Welcome to the forums. Can't help with the tablet question as I'm an Apple guy.

Hi Paul, the free Image Sync program will act as a remote for your new K-1. You can postprocess the JPGs with an app like Snapseed or even Lightroom Mobile.

Welcome aboard!

A big welcome to the forums here Paul. You'll find it's full of helpful photographers just as I did when I joined up, many of them intimately familiar with your new camera. Ask away with any questions you have and someone will be happy to assist I'm sure.

And post a few of those images you're going to be getting with your Pentax gear. Best of luck on the sale of your old stuff.
