I am hoping for some help. I cannot work out where the memory card goes in the piece of equipment illustrated below. I was told it was essential for getting a "impressionist" style of photography, although I am worried I may have to upgrade to a K5 to get the best from it.

An upgrade to a K5 might be good, although I'm not sure it would solve your present dilemma Kris!

On first impressions I thought it may have been a housing of some sort, on account of the knurled knob on top?

Apparently to get the best out of it I need to invest in a good single malt. No end to the expense of this photography lark, is there?

In that case you need an ATP ProMax waterproof SDHC card

Well it is better than the current "Pix your life" or whatever the idiotic tag line is at the moment. What happened to "Just hold a Pentax..."?

Oh Dear, John Riley used this tagline in a comp a few weeks ago (I was the judge) and I thought it was all his own work and much preferred it to "Pix Your Life". Turns out it actually was a Pentax slogan !

I feel foolish

Lets bring back "Where the Action Is" with a TV campaign fronted by Chuck Norris.

No problem, nothing new under the sun, it's a great phrase.

Reminds me of this.



Do you think it's just as smart (and evil?)

My gradfathers pocket watch was inside a secondary silver case just like that. His was rather battered though having survived WW1
