Hi everyone ! My name is Jim, and the PentaxMan618 user name comes from a love of Pentax cameras, ever since I worked in a Studio that sold some cameras as well. A Pentax rep came in the store, and announced that they had a new product, called the "Spotmatic" ! I was hooked the minute he demonstrated, and the shop owner (privately) said, "if you want that camera, I'll let you have it for my cost" ! So, I wish Pentax had a digital version of the Spotmatic ! Anyway, I still shoot with Pentax equipment, even though I have a Canon that I love, and while I was a news photographer for a large city newspaper, I was issued (upon starting), a "Yashica, Twin lens camera that was used until finally going 35mm and the workhorse of all 35mm slrs,,,,the Nikon F ! So, now as a retired over-the-road steel hauler, and now in the ministry, as a 78 year old Presbyterian minister, I do find time to "shoot",,,,once in a while ! :( Thanks for this great site. I really enjoy looking through the entries, and seeing some great photos ! God Bless you all ! Keep shootin' !! :) P.S. Shooting now with the K1-II, K-5II and a K-10d,,,and once in a while haul out my Canon EOS !

Jim, Welcome aboard from Stan in Chicago. Best way to learn is to ask questions and post images.
Welcome to the Hog, Jim, enjoy.
Jim, I too use Pentax cameras, in a minority on this site, but also use a Canon pocket camera when I don't want to lug around a DSLR. Welcome to the site!
Welcome to the forum Jim.
