New owner of a Pentax K-5

Hi.
I'm a pediatrician living in Cancun, Mexico.
I just bought my first Pentax camera, a K-5, and I love it, so far.
Still browsing through the manual, and taking my first pictures.
Can you point me to an introduction book or video to make the learning process easier and faster?
Best regards,

JPSanchezC

PS. Can you help me identify this bird?

Welcome to the forum, there is a dedicated thread here for K5 users, have a look at that it may help.

Sorry on the picture, I don't do birds, well not feathered ones.

Welcome.
It could be a Golden Eagle. Not sure.
Enjoy your K-5!
Kind regards,
Mark

Could just be a Turkey Vulture.

Thanks for the welcoming

Thanks for your welcome notes.
If I ever find about the feathered bird, I'll let you know.

That's a good start and there is a PDF e-book on the K-5 that's not bad written by Yvon Bourque. About &10? There is another book in French if you know it?

Thanks for the information about the book by Yvon Bourque. I'll look for it in Amazon, and see if I can find it.
