Pentax has launched a community-based website for photographers who use Pentax cameras. They call it

The name may not sound smooth to some, but Pentax assures that Pentaxian is a term widely used by Pentax photographers in users’ 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. also features a Community Section with a content geo cloud where visitors from around the world may submit a brief answer to the question “What makes you a Pentaxian?” followed by their name, country, city, and perhaps an image of themselves.
