Hi Everybody:

Already made a few posts and thought I'd better introduce myself. My name is Ed & I'm from Calgary, AB, Canada. I've been shooting on & off for several decades, and learned on the venerable Pentax SP 1000. I'm strictly amateur, shooting pretty much whatever catches my eye, or the usual family gatherings.

In case any are wondering, I'm still a film shooter, can't afford to join the digital crowd yet, but I've got a modest collection of lenses and am in the process of experimenting with them when I've got the chance. And still hoping that Pentax will eventually come out with a FF digital SLR camera.

I've met a couple of you over the past couple of weeks, and you all sound like a great bunch. Hope to hear more from you all over the forseeable future.


P.S. Now if I can only figure out the way to post this.....
