Greetings from Swansea

Hi all,


Norm here, great to be on the forums. Since receiving a K1000 for my eighteenth birthday - I'm now in my mid-fifties and that treasured K1000 is still going strong - I've been a Pentax man. My primary areas of interest are Spotmatics and K-series. I'll tolerate an ME Super but really that's getting a bit fancy for my tastes! I did turn to the Dark Side a time ago with a digital bridge camera (*mumbles something about it not being a Pentax either!*), and that was all well and good, very convenient, but I like a camera that tells me I've just taken a picture with more than just a little clicky sound-effect so I'm back to enjoying the 'heavy metal' nowadays.


Cheers


Norm

Hi Norm. Welcome from South Africa. You'll find some good company on here of folks who still love film and their vintage cameras.
Best.

Hi Norm and welcome to Pentax Forums. I’ve never been to Swansea, although I’ve got close several times. If I manage to do some of the Coastal Walk there next year, I’ll probably make it then.

Enjoy your film cameras, and your time here.

Hi Norm. Another welcome to the Forums from Australia. I had to check your profile to see which Swansea you were from. We have one in Australia too (near Perth).

...and another on the East Coast of Tasmania! There are, no doubt, others, too.

Hi Norm,
Welcome and greetings from Poland.
Very nice background-story about your approach to photography K1000 certainly can be the ultimate camera, so have fun!
