i was cruising thru the differnt threads and i see a very limited and small turn out for the pentax group.i would think in this time of covid and limited movement (sort of ) that the most popular camera of its era should be getting a lot more attention than it has been.i thought everybody at one time or another owned a pentax,SO folks lets see some of those pictures may they be recent or from a far away time.
i am still getting settled with my move to my new home and my posting is done on the fly, but i had to come out and say this.i do have a lot of rolls of film to develop and get developed so my posting is very meager and lord knows not very good,so lets see some stuff from you!!!! maybe instead of one pic post up to 3 if you have them.
or i forgot to list the camera in my tirade
pheonix P1 with 50mm 1.8 k mount lens - fuji 400 probably
I recently picked up a Phoenix P1 in a thrift store at a good price, just to have a spare K-mount body . It's a good camera, a re-branded Cosina C1. Nice bright VF, accurate meter with LED readout, and metal shutter with 1/2000 sec. top speed. And best of all it takes all those great lenses by Pentax, Tokina, Kiron, and many others.
Believe it or not it one of my favorite cameras.so light and easy to use.i have been looking to get an actual pentax something along the lines of an me super or a super program. Prices are sky rocketing and finding one reasonable is getting to be a challenge. We'll see what happens. Gary

Thanks for your thoughts, Gary, your input and images are always welcome. AFAIK, there is no limit on the number of images that may be posted in any week here - that was certainly not my intention when I suggested the thread be started. Good luck with the processing - I look forward to seeing the results when you post them.
A few days late but here's my image for this week.
