Bookmark compilation - might be helpful for other beginners
May 20, 2011

Hey,

I got into photography about half a year ago - and searched for good web ressources ever since. I wanted to share what I've found so far - and would be intrigued if you could add your favourites!

Here you go - it's mostly from a beginner's perspective. Maybe it's helpful to someone.

Pentax Communities

  • Of course, dpreview. The biggest and probably best Pentaxian community I've been able to find.

  • "The other forum" - pentaxforums dot com. Great for information on lenses and for its marketplace. Other than that I prefer dpreview.

There's some good links there - thanks.

One omission that is highly recommended is "Bojidar Dimitrov's Pentax K-Mount Page":

http://www.bdimitrov.de/kmp/

Pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about Pentax K-mount cameras (film & digital), lenses and accessories.

Last updated in May 2014 so the K-S1 isn't there yet plus one or two more recent items.

Cheers

brian

This can go a long way....

Ah, free software - always worth a look.

If we're getting into software it's hard to go past Studioline Photo Basic:

http://www.studioline.net/EN/products/overview-photo-basic/default.htm

Excellent for image management - adding keywords, descriptions etc with reasonable photo editing tools as well.

I tried an earlier version some years ago and liked it so much I bought the commercial version (Studioline Photo Classic). It's been my image management program ever since - makes finding images a breeze.

Cheers

Brian
