Hello! I'm new to the forum but not new to pentax. A little bit about me:
I live in Boise, Idaho and a grad student studying gaming and interactive mobile media at Boise State University. I'm also a veteran, having served with with the US Army Idaho National Guard for thirteen years.
Last year I purchased a pentax K50, imo, a great camera for beginners. A few weeks ago I purchased a pentax KP. I certainly enjoyed the KP over the 50. I've put together a camera rig (neewer frame kit, rode mic, LED lights, and 7" monitor, but discovered that the KP is not compatible with an external HDMI monitor. So this week I traded in the KP for a used K1 in excellent condition from my local pentax dealer (Idaho Camera & Adventure). Which works great with my rig and external montior. So far so good! I'm really loving the K1. Now I have a set up to do photography and videography, as well as indie documentaries.

Welcome to the forum and nice set up. What really strikes me, is you have a local camera shop with Pentax? That’s awesome!

Be sure to check out the photo sharing threads.

Based on my own experience, it is quite rare to find Pentax cameras in brick and mortar stores. Good for you to have one nearby and welcome to the forum!!
