Hello from Helen in Pa.

A lurker finally revealed,

My name is Helen. Been retired for about twenty years (power plant, electrical tech) and photography is my hobby. Currently I own two medium format film cameras, a K7 and, just recently, a KP. Still learning my way around the new addition but Pentax makes that easy as the layout and menus are similar to the K7. I mostly do landscapes. Nothing online just now; at one time I had quite a few offerings on Photosig, but they folded, due to internal bickering I think. Made my first post a couple of hours ago about my successful effort to update the firmware in the KP; the instructions on the official page didn't work for me but I got there eventually. I may be getting on at seventy-four, but am not intimidated by technology.Hoping yours is a rewarding, photo-op summer!

Welcome to the forum. Lurking is allow, but glad you popped in. If you do medium frame film and ran a K7, you know your way around. Way to push through on the firmware update. Hang around and interact. Lots of knowledgeable and friendly folks here.
