Oh I do like it

Particularly the bit on the mirrorless cameras.

Got some incredible pics from someone who changed over to mirrorless last year . Absolutely stunning they are - even he was thrilled with the quality
let the education continue

As much as it annoys the hell out of me when folk take "selfies" on their smartphones, I laughed out loud at the look on the guy's face when he was told that a shot was taken on the other guy's iPhone - the photo he half-praised!!

Brilliant. Well found.

Video quality isn't up to much though. Should have been taken on ...

The best way I know to annoy a photography snob is to tell him/her that I use Pentax gear, works every time

Ditto.

Say you use Pentax, or show them your Pentax camera, and just watch the Photo snob face drop.......Love it

Really made my day, my favourite bit was P mode

I use it 95% of the time when I'm not in the studio . I realised years ago that taking incident readings and averaging them out gave exactly the same result!

Based on both above statements, are there no photography snobs using Pentax kit? Wow! How cool is that.

We are special after all.

Best regards

Think if I'm guilty it's a bit like when the guy is changing his lens - that's the sort of thing I'd say to my daughter when she changes a lens

Get those in Salisbury who are rude and abrupt. I don't mind people talking to me while I work, I had a chat to an eight year old girl who came up to me in the street and said 'cheese', bless her

Life's too short to be miserable.
