Great presentation. Adam Marelli is an engaging speaker. For those wanting to do some street, he has a good vid on talking to strangers.

Nice shot! The "motion" is just right, for my taste.

Sounds like a good idea! I'm in Henderson so Wetlands is really close. Also, the Desert NWR is just a little bit north, Corn Creek exit. Nice & cool when you get up into the mountains there.

I have two Minolta Maxxum 7000 bodies, lenses: 50mm/35-70/70-210, various filters, remote release, tripod (of course). Am looking to add a wide-angle. I do mostly landscape & a tiny bit street. I do all my shooting in Manual mode. Got my first SLR in 1973, a Minolta SRT101. Still have it. Got the Maxxum when it first came out, 1987 I think. Got a part-time job just to get it quicker. Shot a lot then stupidly took a long "break". And, NO, it's not like riding a bike! No video desire at this point. Am looking to get an FF digi.; just a personal preference notion. I like the K-1, by specs&reviews I've read. Plus, a 100% optical viewfinder! Just my preference over an EVF. Seems more than suitable for landscape. Plus, the title of one article I read basically said "be different ". It was about the K-1.The Mark II is refined a bit more but reviewers did not like the forced noise reduction in RAW. Would like to see some "real world" info on that aspect since that is the only thing holding me back on the II. Also, Ricoh has some really good different!
As far as MILC, I'm drawn towards the Sony A7RII, a bit cheaper than S's newest. Still leaning toward DSLR over MILC. I have no real desire to become a C or N fanboy. But, I do have some time til my digi makeover comes to fruition. My wants may change by that time (4-6mos). Currently, most of my pics are on negs/slides. Need to get a scanner to digitize. Looking toward an Epson V600 but they're getting scarce-ish. Above that, more than I currently want to spend. See a lot of 550s though. So, in the meantime, I'll just shoot film to get my eye/skills back. A lot of great info on UHH. Still need to "wander around this site to see what's all available.

Hi, I'm David from Southern Nevada. Just recently started shooting again, after a looong sabbatical... still using film but am researching for a digital makeover. I'm leaning toward the K-1(not the Mark II) at the moment as far as dslrs are concerned. ML is also a possibility. Joined this forum to see what actual Pentax users are saying and, to be able to interact with y'all. My digital knowledge is improving but still in it's infancy. Will try to research before asking what some may consider a "dumb" question. But, my thinking is is that the only dumb question is the one you don't ask. So just bear with me as I work to approach "modern" times & tech in photography.
