Hello from Argentina

Hi, Im Alondra and I live in Argentina in the city of Paraná by the river of the same name. Im a teacher and I enjoy taking pictures.

I started reading the forum about a month ago because I have been given a Q10 as present. Before I used a Canon Powershot SX160, you can see that my experience is limited. Im new to Pentax and to interchangeable lenses. So far Im very happy with my camera.

Im looking forward to learning more from all of you.

All of you have been very kind: thank you, merci, gracias! I´m very happy with my camera. It is exactly what I need now.

Adriano Perticone: es muy difícil conseguir Pentax en la Argentina, las cámaras suelen ser muy caras ya que el mercado está dominado por Nikon y Canon. Llegué a esta cámara de manera casual porque era mas económica comparada con otras y estoy muy complacida con ella, eso si, ni pensar en conseguir las demás lentes o algún accesorio. Pero no importa, estoy disfrutando mucho. Muchas gracias por la recepción cordial.

Welcome aboard! The Q series is fun. And it's powerful if you take the time to learn it.
Which lens did you get? I like the 01 lens, it seems very good.

Yes, TER-OR, I agree with you, this morning I was out and took the opportunity to take some pictures, I liked the results but I need to learn more.

The kit came with the 02 lens, I cannot get the Pentax lens in my country and because of custom restrictions I cannot buy them via ebay or similar but I have been asking to some photographers I know. So far they have volunteer an Industar50, an Helios44 and a SMC Pentax F 35-80, as soon as i can get the adapters (that could be easier) I will go on playing. I don´t know much, I think that only with one of them I will have plenty to practice

En mercado libre hay bastantes cosas, yo tengo una k50 y vengo de Canon, marca de la cual tenia muchas cosas, y todo lo que es flashes y disparadores para strobist me ha servido. Consegui tambien un par de lentes en Alamaula y mercadolibre, asi que a no desesperar... Hay pocas cosas, pero hay... y si sabes buscar y tenes paciencia podes conseguirlas muy baratas (mucho menos que los accesorios Canon o Nikon) Mucha suerte y espero ver tus fotos!
