You can import up to 50 dollars worth of stuff without paying taxes (yes I'm Brazilian too, but living in the US). So I would get them from the US Amazon or Ebay and have them sent to your home.

I just got these recently for my K-r (same batteries as your K-50 uses): http://www.amazon.com/D-Li109-Replacement-Li-ion-Battery-Pentax/dp/B00MF6RBI...x+k-50+battery

As for flash, I really like to use old auto thyristor flashes. I have three. My favorite is the Pentax AF280. These flashes have sensors that see how much light they need to be sending (80s technology...). Experimenting with the high and low auto settings even allows me to use it as a bounce flash.

A P-TTL flash that communicates with your camera will cost a bit more.

Hi chris! Thanks a lot for your answer. I've seen flashes in amazon but my problem is that i dont have an international credit Card, they not even accept paypal. So i don't know what to do. Why are we speaking in english? 😊 if you are brazilian too? Your english certainlly is much better than mine. Although it is good for me so i can practice my poor english. When are you coming to Brasil? Carnival is soon! Come and bring me a flash and i will buy it from you! That would be good! Ok Chris, good to talk to you! Have a nice weekend. By!

I just spent a month in Brazil in December/January, so it might be a while!

Ebay will take Paypal. That shouldn't be a problem I think. I have friends in Brazil who buy from Ebay all the time. I've even sold stuff on Ebay to Brazil!

Get some rechargeable batteries for your flashes, too. I use Energizer (I have 3 sets of batteries) but know people who love Eneloops.
