HA, HA Rupert, Ron is a nobody mate, an insignificant little nuisance. Do you go lurking over there at all, these days?
I am not finding this site at all easy to get around, everyone is tucked away in their own little hidey hole here, and they take som routing out too, lol.

Poor Samsung service

Hi James, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles, but my experience is the total opposite. My GX10 had a problem with the custom W/B whatever I set, it was BLUE. Grey slates on our roof, came out a lovely shade of blue, green grass on the mountains here, turned out with a BLUE tint. So I bit the bullet, after hearing of the terrible Pentax service, here in the UK, I was a little umm let's say apprehensive is putting it mildly, lol. So off it went, 3 weeks to the day, a parcel arrived here. Upon opening it there was my Sammy, with a service note saying that Samsung were sorry for it breaking down, and that they had replaced the main board. So I charged the battery and took it outside to test. Everything was perfect, and it has been ever since. Samsung are new in the DSLR market, so I think they are having teething problems. Personally I think they are a great company, and wouldn't hesitate to wholheartedly recommend them, as they were marvellous wheb I couldn't get an update for my GX10 too, (bl**dy AOHELL problem, that I've since sorted out ;-) ). I phone the Sammy helpline and was given a phone number in SOUTH AFRICA, thankfully, (or I WOULD have been up in arms too), it was a freephone number. But the chap there put the update on a web site of theirs down there. No luck, I still couldn't get the update. I phoned the bloke back, and after he tried everything else, he went away for a few mins. and came back to tell me that his manager, would host the update on HIS OWN PERSONAL web site, for the next six hours for me to try to get it. I got it first try, cos I'd found out the problem with my ISP. But they went that extra few yards for me.
I'm sorry this turned into such a long winded account, but, as the BT advert used to say, "It's good to talk," they don't mention anything about the paying for it, though, do they? ;-)

Thanks Kerrowdown, that other forum used to be a pretty good, but lately it's changed a lot. There seems to be a few people over there, who are just spoiling for a fight. Then there are, or is, some sneaking person/persons, who as soon as they see a difference of opinion are hitting the complaint button and getting people banned. I hope to have a better experience here. :-)

Thank you for the welcome Tim, I'm having trouble getting used to the set up over here. But I'm very glad that I don't have to sit in the Samsung forum on my own, as there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity there. Allan

Hi Mr Apollinax, thank you for the welcome, I'm glad that even though I have a Sammy GX10, and not the K10, I will not be segregated from the rest of the society here. I didn't want to feel like the red haired step-child of your forum ;-)

Hi Rupert, I'm afraid I had a bit of a run in over at the other place with sombody that I don't think you're to friendly with, Ron, brandrx. I accused him of being the cry baby that hits the complaint button all the time, and he went off the deep end, ranting about you, and Don Allison, and Lord knows what else, ending up with the fact, that in future he is going to ignore me, and my posts altogether. I'm telling you now Jim, I'm sitting here, (on my birtday too), and the tears are dripping all over my keyboard at the thought of him ignoring me ;-)

EDIT. Sorry Rupert, I forgot to tell you, (if you didn't already know), Don Allison is the latest recipient of a banning order over there. At the moment, it's only a one week ban.

I put this post in the thread started by Rupert, as his "Hello", to you all.
Hi there, along with Rupert I have been a member here for a few years, (since Nov. 2006), but I have not been very active here. I've been over at dpreview too. I wasn't sure whether I could post here, as I don't own a Pentax :-(), no, I have the sibling, a Samsung GX10.
Now that, that is out of the way, I'd like to inform you all that another person has been banned for a week, this time. It's Don Allison, Ruperts' "sparring partner." He, (Don), called on brandrx, (Ron, the bloke that got Rupert banned), to e mail him as he, (Don), wanted to have a "chat," with Ron over something about a feller called Festus. Anyway, Don got kicked out for a week too.
So I guess I'll have to wait on you people here, to see if you'll accept me with my Sammy. Cheers from sunny, (today anyway, lol), Wales.
Taffy.

Well, like Rupert, I too have been a member here for some years, Although I have to confess I don't own a Pentax, I have it's sibling, a Samsung GX10, so I have been wary about coming here, as I didn't know what sort of welcome I'd get. But, I guess I'll find out now, won't I?
Ruperts friend Don Allison, has also been banned now, for only one week though, so I expect he'll be back over there with a few kind words for the person that got him banned, which by coincidence, just happens to be the same person, that got Rupert banned, Ron, who posts over there, under the name of brandrx.
So anyway, after a few years, I'm here to say Hi!
By over there, I'm thinking that you all know that I'm referring to dpreview, right?

I'm sorry to hear of your ban from DPR,com but if you go there and read the thread about this topic, a few are wondering if the reason could be your links in your siggy. Grumpy Phil does not allow any advertising on his forums, so this "may," be the reason for it. We were just wondering. Perhaps if you contacted Mr. Asskey and offered ti remove the links he would capitulate and allow you back.

Hi there Djedi, I shall get a K10 or it's Samsung counterpart, the GX10 when they are available, here. I look forward to seeing all the Pentax images here, I love the colour in Pentax images. It looks real, and bright, not overdone and Disney like as some cams out there. Cheers mate, Allan.:)

For your welcome message. I shall certainly post some images when I can get a K10. I read about your troubles over at finnicky Phil's place. I don't think he should be interfering as much as he does. But he does it on every forum that gets a new camera introduced. He did it on the Oly forum earlier in the year when the E330 was introduced too. I bet that when he has posted the K100/or K10 review, he will be back on the forum arguing as to why he gave it such a rating, or why he said something or other about it. The truth is, he needs the forum members as much as they need him. With all the tests and hype about the K10 on the boards there, he will be reading and get tipped off as to what to look out for when he tests it. He is forewarned about any possible faults or problems with it, before he even gets one for test himself. Once again diolch yn fawr, (thank you very much), for the one and only welcome message. Cheers mate, Allan. :p

Hi, as of now I don't own a Pentax, not until I can get my sticky little mitts on a K10D here in the UK, (Wales actually). I noticed that there seems to be a bleeding, (more like a haemorrhage really), of some of the usual names over there. So I thought that I'd better find out where all this wealth of information was going to, (else how am I to pester you all with questions when I get the
K10? Only joking, don't panic. I'm not a total newbie to photography having had Oly OM and Canon EOS SLR's, (film. not digitals), and moved into the digital world with Fuji a few years ago. Well that's about it folks, bye for now, Taffy.
