Episode 12: The Pentax Episode

This week on the Camerosity Podcast, we have a quad-fecta of returning callers, Mario Piper, Mark Faulkner, Michael Gossett, and Michael Kaplan all joined Anthony, Theo, Paul, and I in a lively discussion that was dominated by everyone's favorite camera, brand Pentax!  Of course, I found a way to mention Miranda again, plus a dig on Petri SLRs, and Anthony previewed a future discussion of developing in Caffenol and Black and White Reversal!

Next week, we are hoping to have a special guest who is a published author of multiple camera related books, so keep an eye out for the show announcement this upcoming Sunday, November 21st around Noon Central Time.
