Hi all UHH members. My name is Ed and I am from Superior, Wisconsin. I started "taking pictures" about 65 years ago with an Argus P & S film camera and flash bulbs. I have been playing with cameras on and off ever since. My first real camera was a Minolta X370 and I had a 50mm lens and a zoom lens that I can't remember what it was {old age is catching up to me} I am thinking this was about 30 years ago. Then changed to digital with a Sony Mavica and have about 500 floppy 💾 discs, with no program so they can be printed out. Currently I am Using a Pentax X-5 Bridge camera that seems to do almost everything I want to do, taking pictures of my wifes flower and vegetable gardens as well as our grandkids, great grandkids and our dog. I shoot mostly in A, but do sometimes use other settings as well. I still have plenty to learn about this camera. Yes, I am practicing and reading the manuel. Looking forward to helping hands from all of you at UHH.

Welcome to the forum.

My first digital was a Mavica. The images from it are JPEGS.
Consider getting an external floppy drive so you can transfer the images to your computer and edit/print them.

Thank you for the info. I have now ordered an external hard drive. Do you know if I need a program to install the photos on my computer?
