Among the many activities of the day (please read reports about previous editions), this year we'll celebrate 40 years of the Asahi Pentax 6x7 medium format SLRSLR
Acronym of "Single Lens Reflex". See also "Reflex"
camera, which was introduced by Pentax (formerly Asahi Opt. Co.) in 1968. By bringing the convenience of the 35mm SLR to medium format and backed up by a wide and excellent range of lenses, the Asahi Pentax 6x7 was widely adopted and appreciated by landscape and fashion photographers worldwide.

The main photo exhibition by AOHC members is themed about “Nature". The winning pictures, selected by a jury at the Pentax Day, will show-up in the AOHC calendar 2009.
Another group exhibition of pictures by AOHC members will be on display.

Visitors attending the event will also find pretty models and sport cars to shoot at, and much more.
