Hello from the San Francisco Area


Thanks to all of you for creating such an amazing resource of information on Pentax cameras.

Even though I have had my Spotmatic for many years, I am really just an occasional photographer / beginner. I purchased this camera when I was 16 I think - took almost a year's pay at the time, and I really stretched to buy the -F model so it would have full apeture viewing. Of course, the next year they introduced the K mount.

In any event, it is capable of much better pictures than I have ever taken. It is about time for a cleaning though, even though it is in the box a lot. (Spotmatic F w/ 55mm F 1.8 Takumar)

Take care

Thank you for the welcome.

I might be in trouble - already picked up a second camera (today) Now I just need to figure out how to unlock the ME mirror.
