SOURCE: what is the trigger voltage for Pentax AF 500FTZ

When using a digital camera with a flash unit of unknown trigger voltage, you are risking the life of your camera. Excessive trigger voltages can disable the cameras internal circuitry to the point where it is totally beyond repair.

I do not have, in my files. the trigger voltage for the specified flash unit. I only have the specs for larger portables and studio flash gear.

A simple test , however, will reveal the exact trigger voltage. If you have a multi-meter or a DV voltmeter with a 250 VDC range (just to be in the safe side) you can preform this test at home or an electronics service technician can do it for you in a few minutes.

The test lead are placed across the synch contacts on the foot of the unit or plugged into the sunch socket if the flash unit has one. If the reading is more that 4 or 5 volts you can still safely use the flash with the aid of a protector device which goes in between the flash and the camera. Theses are available at better camera shops and dealers.

SOURCE: Pentax K100D will not power up

First make sure you are using fresh lithium batteries. These cameras indicate low batteries quite early on. Rechargeables even when freshly charged are marginal.

If the problem persists remove the batteries. Set the camera switch to the off position. Set the focus switch to manual. Wait at least a minute. Then replace the batteries and switch on again.

Operating with low batteries can confuse the firmware and it may be stuck in a low-battery loop. If this is the case this should reset the camera by allowing the electronics to power-down completely.

If this does not work you wiil have to contact pentax support.

Picture is not displaying on sony dsc-hx1


Talking about two camera's my guess is you made a picture with a Pentax K100D and you put it on the memory card in a Sony dsc-hx1.
In the manual the Sony tells what sizes of pictures it can display. None of the 4 sizes the Pentax K100D makes, is in that list.
Perhaps you don't mean this, please let me know.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!

If this is a manual focus lens, you will need to do two things (and an optional third thing.)

1) On the side of the camera, you have to switch the focus mode switch from "AF" (Autofocus) to "MF" (Manual focus) . . . Yeah. I know, you probably already did that. <grin>

2) When you press Menu, go to the Custom Setting and change the Allow aperture setting to on, so that the Pentax K100D will then work with manual control of the aperture ring. You need to do this or the K100D will not work with manual exposure lenses (M lenses) or even autoexposure lenses (KA, KA2, FA, etc.) when you move the aperture ring from the "A" position to one of the manual aperture settings!

3) This is optional, but in the Custom Setting you can also turn on the Fl in manual focus mode, so that even though you don't have autofocus capability, you will get a beep indicator when you have successfully managed to manually focus your lens.

I have a few nice manual focus lenses that I have a lot of fun playing with on my K100D.

Take care & Happing Imaging!
