Hello Everyone

Just wanted to say hello to the forums as suggested.

I am a very amateur camera user. I had my first Pentax around 28 years ago. For my first wedding anniversary my lovely wife bought me a K-1000 35mm camera kit with a 28-70 mm lens and a 70-200mm lens. I am currently using (playing with) a Pentax K50 using the same manual lenses. So many settings to go through and get straightened out. LOL

Anywho, Just saying hello and introducing myself to the forum. Take care everyone... happy photographing!

Welcome, I'm new to the forum too but not photography. I find I'm often overwhelmed from the menus of digital cameras as well, definitely more complex than my trusty mamiya film cameras!

It takes a bit to use everything in manual mode - but I think Pentax does a better job than the others at providing the tools for manual use.

Welcome and you obviously have a great wife, buying you K1000 which would last much longer than a ring. You will find the settings very logical and easy and this forum very helpful
