The Pentax User club's website has had a bit of a revamp in order to cater for the growing community of Pentax camera owners and also to bring it in line with up-to-date web technologies.

The redesign links club members and registered online visitors to various new features including a gallery, competitions, classified ads and profile sections. It also works as in support of the club's quarterly magazine, sent out to members.

Daniel Bell, site administrator comments: "With the huge growth in SLR sales, Pentax has begun to take back share in a sector where it was once a major player.

"The Pentax User Club gives consumers who've invested in the Pentax brand a place to discuss photography and share photographs with like-minded Pentax camera owners. The revamped website is designed to strengthen the online community aspects."

The new site has free access to all areas and registered users can upload photos for feedback and comment on other photos, which can be searched by category, tags, most viewed or latest uploads.

The forum has 15 categories to discuss everything from cameras and lenses to accessories as well as techniques, meetings or troubleshooting.
