  • You need at least an f/2.8 lens on FF because of the usually rather dim conditions, APS-C or FF does not change a lot here, light is lacking and if you want to give a chance to the AF to do the ...
  • I might be a bit too late for your decision... I would refrain from the 85/1.4, a prime lens for sport sounds great when shooting indoors with only little available light, but you are not flexible ...
  • Yes, I do. On my last trip in Madagascar, I used exclusively Pentax, a 645z and two K-3 (see http://www.bydoms.com/-/galleries/travel/madagascar-2014 for the photos). The K-3 is a great little ...

  • Thank you Earl. Yes, we had a possibility as well to go out for the whales, but it did not fit well within the tour. We preferred saving that day in Belo-sur-Mer (of uncertain whale watching due to ...
  • Thank you for the tip, sounds interesting. I will wait on the proposal of the local tour guide to see if there is a chance to come to Marojejy. From my understanding, the next tour will more be on ...
  • Thank you Wim. I see, you know remote areas of Madagascar as well. In 2012, I headed from Morondava over Kirindy to the Tsingy de Bemaraha as well. But after that stop, we crossed the country to ...
  • Yes, it was a truly amazing trip to a pretty unknown region of Madagascar.
  • Thank you. Madagascar is an amazing country to visit. It was my third trip to the island and I still want to return. Next time, it will most probably be remote locations in the North.
  • It really was a great trip, Dale. I hope the photos show at least a little bit of it. For the lemurs, the DA*300 was in general enough. Lemurs in national parks or nature reserves visited by quite ...
  • Thank you, yes, the baobab trees at sunset. I tried to position myself in order to have the reflection of the baobabs in the water, as well as the sun hidden behind one of the trees. Needless to ...

  • Yes, one of the photos in my original post is from the "Allée des Baobabs" close to Morondava, the other photo with baobabs is further south. I think it is not a matter of the forum, but from the ...
  • Thank you Roger. I think it all depends on the initial jpgs and the amount of sharpening one applies to the photos. I tried to avoid excessive rendering since websites like flickr apply already ...
  • Thank you Doug. Yes, at least for this trip, it was back to 100% Pentax equipment. In addition of the 645z with DA645 28-45 for the landscapes, I was tempted to take the D4s for wildlife, but I ...
  • Thank you Jim. You are right, it would not be complete without an image of a lemur. This was my third trip to Madagascar, but it was on a route through the driest areas of the country were you ...
  • Created discussions Back from Madagascar
    Hi I am just back from another amazing trip in Madagascar. This time, the trip took me to very remote locations, from Morondava to Fort Dauphin more or less along the coast. As camera equipment, I ...
