I am from the Okanagan Valley in B.C. in Canada and have just purchased a used k30 dslr. I've spent the last couple of days learning how to use pentax-a and m42 lenses and seem to have figured out most of the mechanics of it now. This is the first slr camera for me other than a k1000 film camera I used many years ago. I didn't use it much and regarded it as a minor miracle if the film came back with some semblance of an image on it

Being a linux user I plan to use Rawtherapee to work with raw files - should be an interesting experience.

I've learned lots going through various entries on this forum - thanks to all who have contributed - it is a very informative site.

John.

Big welcome John. Be sure to browse thru the troubleshooting section where reliable answers to most general questions can be found, along with lots of tips and tricks! I've spent hours there and picked up so many wonderful suggestions while avoiding some of the typical problems new shooters run into.

Thank you for the welcome(s). As a "lurker" I learned lots from the forum and I'm sure it will continue.

Welcome to the clubhouse John.

You have a neighbour up your way that is a member here, Bertwert, a nice young man in Golden.

I'm a short drive to the South in Washington.

Looking forward to seeing some of your work.
