Hi from Madagascar!

Hello there I live in Madagascar and am interested in getting a pentax camera as my first DSLR as I've always been sticking to film photography and borrowing DSLRs from my workplace.
I hope we spend a nice time together!

Hello and welcome.

I was in Madagascar only a few months ago. Having traveled extensively over the island, Pentax's weather sealing (in the K-5) proved a real advantage. I suppose this would be one of the most important reasons for you to choose Pentax?

Which area are you from? There are some really great places for photography in your country, so I'm looking forward to seeing an insider's view on these!

It's great to know somebody was here only a short time ago. I currently live in Antananarivo, in a city.

It's really hard to order something online from here and I've always waited for any friends to go abroad and send them money for any purchases,and the banks here doesn't support the online shops very well, so I don't know yet how am I going to get my k5.

But yes, I'm planning on making a short documentary series of visiting our natural sites, which will require a camera that can support some rough weather situations just in case (and the K5 was the best for this job based from the reviews and videos)

I will soon keep you guys updated when I get things working

Welcome to the forum, once you get your K-5 camera, remember to post some images of your unique island.
