WHO ARE WE?

WE ARE THE PENTAXIANS.
WE ARE THE DIEHARDS.
WE ARE DIFFERENT.
WELCOME TO OUR WORLD :-)

100 years of Pentax

WE DO DESIGN

For many years, we have trusted the engineers and they created beautiful, smart cameras for us. We also design - we create calendars, T-shirts, albums, neck strap lanyards...

100 years of Pentax

WE DISCOVER KNOWLEDGE

It started with the fact that we were digging to find information about Pentax equipment. In those days the Internet was just becoming popular.

WE'RE GOING TO MEETINGS

We started to meet each other in real world. Cool company = fun time. Pentax cameras always accompany us. Average number is 3 per person :-P

WE HELP EACH OTHER

Poland is not a rich country. 50 years spent behind Iron Curtain is the period when Japanese cameras were out of our reach. That's why we gladly swap equipment between us.

REPAIR

We help in repairing equipment. Handyman (DYI) is hidden in everyone, you just need to wake him up.

BUSY BEE TEAM

We also handle real life issues. When something bad happens, we can always count on someone from the Pentax.org.pl community.

WE SPEND TIME TOGHETHER

We go on holidays, vacations, weekend trips out of town. We feel good among our company and take photos while lazing around.

WE BECOME COUPLES

Among the Polish Pentaxians are people who met on pentax.org.pl. There are those who got married. We also have Pentaxian children.

WE COLLECT MEMORIES ...

... and equipment. Sometimes we exchange exhibits from our collections. We love “mouldy pieces”!

K-MOUNTAINS

Twice a year, we meet in Polish mountains - in a railway heritage. Different seasons allow to have beautiful walks and take some photos.

DARKROOM

Many of us remember analogue times. Many still take pictures on film and spend time in the darkroom.

100 years of Pentax

DIAGNOSE

If something goes wrong, we can find the reason. Not only in the darkroom, not only in hardware matters. Hope dies last.

LAST FAREWELL

Exactly - sometimes we die. Some of us have left this world, but we have them in our memories and we are grateful to them for time shared with us. Pentax funerals are very sad celebrations.

100 years of Pentax

BUT WE LIVE ...

... and we enjoy life as much as we can :-P

100 years of Pentax

COMPETITION

The competition "who has more equipment" has been changed into sports tournaments organized during our meetings.

100 years of Pentax

BIKE AND MOTORCYCLE

We are going on common bicycle and motorcycle trips. In every corner of the country we have friends who can be visited.

WE'RE SKIING

Winter time is not only a fireplace, New Year's party and walks in the snow. A little bit of action on the slope can be useful - after all, Pentax makes waterproof camera bodies :-)

100 years of Pentax

NEW - OLD USER

Time after time someone new joins us. Usually newcomer looks for help and... stays for years.

EXPERIMENT

The Destructive Group is a special branch for “doing nothing” activities. It balances the enthusiasm of those who still want to do something.

100 years of Pentax

ON THE EDGE

Sometimes life puts you on the edge and you get away from your friends. But the bond remains and the roads merge again after some time.

100 years of Pentax

HIBERNATUS

Even after a temporary freeze of contacts, friendship flourishes again. Just like the equipment on the right - this Pentax body still takes pictures after being frozen!

100 years of Pentax

LONGING

And the memory of youth is still intertwined with a look into the future. Past sunrises with upcoming sunsets. Pictures with Pentax are beautiful!

100 years of Pentax

RELAXATION

The most important thing is that we can enjoy every shutter release and stop the time, freeze the present. Together.
