What reactions do you get when carrying a Pentax camera.
Oct 11, 2012

So I'm at an event carrying my K5 it has a FA 43 mounted on it. I always have the bright red Pentax strap with it so I'm sure that was easy to read. Someone pointed to me and said, “Look at that old winder camera!” (referring to film I guess) Now I admit the FA 43 with its screw on hood looks a little retro but the camera is unmistakably a modern dslr. I suppose he saw the brand, Pentax, and thought it must be a film era camera. A friend laughed and said I looked down worried that I had run out that day with an old Me Super body in the bag. I am not that absent minded!

Does any else get interesting reactions when carrying a Pentax camera?
