My new P30T

Hello dear PentaxForums nation
It's my first post in this forum, i hope i don't make any mistake. If i do, please tell me about that

2 days ago, i bought a P30T and until 2mn, i love it's shutter sound. It's amazing

These are some photos from Istanbul, of couse with my P30T & FA 50mm 1.4
I hope you like it






I'll add some new photos just after i finish my current 36.

Nice set, ToffieBoi! I especially like the fishing pole on the Pier.

A sweet softness

You're off to a fine start with that camera and lens. The P30[n/t] is the most underappreciated of the Pentax bodies, in my opinion. It should give you great service.

Thank you for your comment.
I didn't make any search on net before i buy it. I only look it's body. It was looking good and i bought it
So i have no idea is it a good body or bad. Also, i don't have any experience about SLR's. I can't realize which one is good or bad.
I think I'm lucky to met this body

I have lot's of photos that street style, but it never looks the same with my K10D. P30T is really different, it looks like real, as if people are still walking.

I have ~12 frames left, probably i can add new photos on Tuesday

If you're interested in more information, there are great reviews on this site as well as another thread about the P3n, the previous version of the P30t. Also check out Pentax P-Series Film Bodies

I have had a P3n since about 1992 and love it. Happy shooting.

I read some of these reviews. I think, one of the reason of "why no love for p3n" is it's an entry level body. I'm not sure about that but it has plastic body, no Ev or ISO whell.
What you think about that?

I think there are a lot of folks out there that spend more time worrying about features than taking pictures. If you want exposure compensation, set the thing to manual and use the shutter speed or aperture to adjust the exposure. As far as not having an ISO wheel, that only really matters if you are pushing or pulling your exposure in processing, or loading bulk film into generic canisters. Either way, there are commercially available stickers to put over the DX code and change it to whatever you like. Just my not so humble opinon.

You are right, but I'm not one of them. I love my P30T and i don't care about other features

These bodies are not digital. The things effecting the photo quality are film and lens. But everyone want to buy more complicated body, it's the truth.
