Pentax has launched a community-based website for photographers who use Pentax cameras. They call it Pentaxian.com.
The name may not sound smooth to some, but Pentax assures that Pentaxian is a term widely used by Pentax photographers in usersâ€™ forums.
At the core of the site are videos that share the stories of four inspiring Pentaxian artists and their passion for photography:
- Godfrey DiGiorgio of San Francisco, CA, is a former NASA scientist and computer technology executive turned urban street photographer.
- Mark Dimalanta of Huntington Beach, CA, is a former Doctor of Medicine turned freelance international surf photographer.
- Kerrick James of Mesa, AZ, has been a professional nature photographer of the American West for more than 20 years.
- Julie Quarry of Portland, OR, is a cruise ship marketing executive who picked up her first digital SLR two years ago and now freelances on the side as a photographer.
Petaxian.com also features a Community Section with a content geo cloud where visitors from around the world may submit a brief answer to the question â€œWhat makes you a Pentaxian?â€ followed by their name, country, city, and perhaps an image of themselves.
