Just to say hello ^__^

Hi people

I`m Hideo and was here to say hello and to share my experiences ^__^

I now live in Brazil, Sao Paulo.

I start photographing in 1982~83, about my 6 years old with a olympus trip 35, a present from my uncles in Japan. I had maked the only few photos from my grandpa.

Later, about my 10 years old, my father take me the camera to gave as a part of paymment to his workers i__i It`s how the life is, so sad.

So, when I had 18, I bought my first camera, a Pentax 35mm film PC330 (a automatic camera), but had short life, about 2 years and stop working, but I had excellent memories from this excellent pictures. In that year the firsts APS cameras has appear and I buy a Kodak APS camera, but the images are bad and I sold the camera by a low price. I also had tried with a Polaroid 600 but the cartridge film are too expensive here and I don`t had good results as well.

About one year later, in a party, the older sister of a friend of mine had a Canon APS camera, and I saw excellents results. So, this make me to buy a Pentax APS Efina and several years had pass with good photos ^__^

In 2006 I had bought a Pentax MZ30 (ZX30) 35mm film with a 28-90 lens. In sequence come others itens, a 28mm vivitar macro lens, a 28-300 sigma aspherical lens, a Af360 flash unit, several filters, vivitar teleconverters, a battery pack unit.

In 2007 I had bought a Panasonic FX12 (7.1 mpx) digital compact camera with leica lens, but the results are just poor in quality and I had bought a Sigma APO 170-500.

In 2008 I had bought a pentax K110D (6.1 mpx) kit (18-55 lens) and a used flash AF500 to serve as slave flash. The results are better than the panasonic but still poor if look the film results with my Pentax MZ30.

So, in 2008 december, I had bought a Pentax K10D, my dreams camera. It`s wonderfull. //o *___* o\\

So, that`s a simple resume of my life with cameras. Now with 31 years old ... and really sorry for any grammatical english errors and mistakes.
