The other day on the Tele, I watched the English cooking show with Rachel Koo. Actually I was more watching Rachel than the cooking.

But I saw her using a Pentax Camera. Admittedly I looked like a K2 or similar, but it was a Pentax.

There is the proof, that there is another Pentax somewhere in existence, and I saw it.

I saw it!!, I did see it ,I did ,I did, whoopee !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's two in one week. "See my Lenny Henry post" K1000.
Opposite sides of the world. but still two Pentax's on the telly in one week. That's got to be a record.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

I saw one too, near Beddgelert, last Wednesday, about 12.00. It was a K3 too (identifiable by the monstrous carbuncle on the front). First I've ever seen in the wild or in captivity. The lad carrying it was past me before I could say anything...
Best wishes,

Andrew

Their was an archaeologist with a (film) Pentax slung round his neck on one of the older editions of Time Team repeated last week.

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

You lucky devil. Al I could muster was a film type with a K mount. For a short moment I thought It was a screw mount and I needed to sit down in shock and had to have a dram of single malt. But then ( luckily I recorded the program).I realized it was a K-mount. Then I had to have another dram of Malt.

That was close .

I was on a photo charter the other day, about 25 photographers. Suddenly realised the three of us in the "front row" all had Pentaxes - My K3 and a K30 and another K3. Not to mention the other K5 and a chap with a film Pentax.....

I was at an event near Strangford last Sunday and one of the organisers had a Pentax round her neck. Unfortunately I wasn't able to positively identify it, but it had a top plate LCD

The truth is out there...
