May I introduce myself ? My name is HelenJo.

Hi everyone !
I am so glad I found this site.
I have aggressively pursued photography my entire life as an experienced armature .
Purchased a KP right when they came out about a year ago because it reminded me of a LX Camera from the past that I used to own.

Before that it was several Spotmatics that I bought new (tells my age), then 2 KX's and even a LX for several years.

More recently about 5 years ago I started Digital with a K5 and also a K30 (broke 3 times) , and now its a new KP that im just beginning to feel comfortable with.

I am a 3 decade member of the Camera Guild in Sun City , Az.
Met a Pentax Forum member there recently , and he showed me this site. Im excited and very Grateful.

At 88 I just may be one of the oldest members here , and Im looking forward to a solid 10 years posting my images , learning , making friends , and having fun !

Hi HelenJo, and welcome!!

Great to have you with us, and well done to the forum member who directed you our way

You'll fit right in here... there are many members who used to (and still) shoot Spotmatics, and plenty of KP owners too.

Looking forward to your involvement here!

Hi there Helen and welcome. I'm new here too.

I too love classic cameras like the LX, K1000, Super A... Canon A1, Olympus OM10, Fujicas... I have quite a few.

Welcome HelenJo,

I'm only a youngster at 61. I still own an ME Super that I bought in 1981.
I look forward to seeing your photos and love your very positive outlook.
