I've been taking photos since the early 1990's, it all started with a manual Ricoh. Back then all you could adjust was aperture and shutter speed. In some ways it has all changed and others it has stayed the same...just a lot more ways to adjust aperture and shutter speed.
Pentax (now owned by Ricoh) has been my brand of choice for many years. I currently use a K-7 with a bunch of lenses and a Metz flash.
