We now have a lineage of Pentax Users in the family!

Sue and myself we can take as read, but daughter now has a Pentax E60, eldest Grandaughter(eight) has a Pentax T30 that I used to use. Second grandaughter(nearly 3) has on the way a Pentax E10 that she will be using under guidance.

The young ones use them when we go somewhere suitable (Martin Mere planned for Monday) and the 8 year old is actually very good. She has a nice eye for a balanced picture even now.

Start them young indeed!
Best regards, John

It's great to get young ones involved in anything they find fun. I really think it stimulated them and gives them a thirst for knowledge.

It is good to get young ones interested in photography and using a Pentax camera

My son is now 3 going on 4. Last year we bought him a digital fisher price camera and some of the results have been surprisingly good. Its been fun seeing the world through the eyes of a 3 year old. I think it will be a while before we buy him his first proper camera though, unless Pentax decide to make an armour plated optio soon.

Cheers,

We buy them inexpensive ones from eBay and try to teach them how to be careful.

Accidents can and will happen and we accept that.

On a slightly different note, today I took my family to the Sydney Royal Easter Show, and during the course of the day, spotted a large number of mostly Asians with Nikon/Canon digital slr cameras, and lenses valued in the thousands. Only once did I see a Pentax, a K100D Super, no less, in the hands of a good, solid Aussie lass, with a kit 18-55 lens. I look forward to seeing her shots on the Gallery.
