The manual for the K10 is available at

http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/product/K10D_Manual.pdf

pp.77-79 details operation of the self-timer.

Basically, use the "Fn" button to bring up the menu. Press up on the four-way controller to select Drive Mode. Then you have two self-timer options. The first sets up a 12-second delay. The second is a 2-second delay.

Unfortunately, the manual offers no other method for setting a self-timer time.

If you are talking about date and time, that starts on p.56 in the manual. Basically, enter the menu system in Playback mode, choose Set-up, choose Custom setting, then select the Date setup option. There are a series of options there for formatting and setting the day, month, year, hour, and minutes.

No.. someone sent me copies of photos of the mechanism. In my case, the little level that controls the aperature is not going back into place but no one seems to know how to take it apart and reset it. I will eventually take it apart very carefully (you know how springs just jump out at ya). When I do I will post it. Don't hold your breath right now as I'm recovering from surgery but I expect sometime towards the end of the month.

How do I properly set the self-timer to work on a Pentax ME Super SLR?


Push the lever on the front of the camera counterclockwise until it stops. To start the self-timer, push up slightly on the lever.

If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.

My camera doesn't shoot anymore.


photo's on the beach, camera obstructed? Could it be you got sand in your camera? Didyou change your lens while on (or near to) the beach? Sand in your shutter can obstruct the shutter in that case the camera has to be cleanded i don't know what the costs are for a cleaning of the body.

Pentax ES2; do bayonet lens fit digital Pentax SLR?


Any Pentax K-mount lens will fit any Pentax DSLR. The DSLR will fire the shutter.  There is a menu setting (RTFM) which allows the use of older lenses, but you will lose some of the automation (again RTFM). Remember to allow that the effective focal length when using a "film" lens on a DSLR body goes up by 50%.
A standard 50mm lens becomes a 75mm equivalent, but stays a large aperture.

I am looking to buy a Pentax k10 D DSLR camera and I was wondering whether or not my 55-200 mm pentax lens from the seventies would fit on it. Any idea?


Greetings fffffjffffff,

It would really depend on the mount the previous lens has versus the mount on the new body. The advantage is that majority of the time you can utilize lenses on different bodies of slr cameras, as long as you stay within the same manufacturer.

Thanks,

Dorothy

Firmware Update


save the firmware file on your sd card, then you have to find the menu in your camera, to load it in camera memory, make sure your battery is fully charged or it will not work.
