Well, just buy the CR2 lithium batteries. I buy Panasonic brand CR2 lithium (it takes two). They only cost $5 for a pair.

USER MANUAL FOR PENTAX CAMERA


Could someone please tell me what battery is used for the Pentax ESPIO 738S shoot and point camera. I picked it up second hand and it has no manual or accessories. As far as i can tell it needs a lithium battery but i don't know which one or what size. Also if you know of anywhere i can get an electronic copy of the user manual that would be handy aswell.
Thanks for helping with my dilemma.

Compatible Flash Units


pentax istDL does not support TTL flash metering unlike most of the other pentax DSLRs. You need a flash that is P-TTL. How annoying hey? I was pretty bummed, but it made me learn to shoot fully manual...

i think that there is only one P-TTL flash on the market at present. (AF540 or something)

good luck...

Shutter wont fire, or auto focus


This sounds like mirror box motor problem ( see enclosed shot from our workshop ) : this cocks the shutter and controls mirror mechanism and when the drive dosnt work properly ( small nylon gear on the motor goes ) camera will develop the the sort of problems you describe.
Can be repaired but will cost $ 150-200 so it is relatively expensive repair.

Digital camera problem


The battery should be a common format with a Pentax label. There is a possibility it could be card fault. But before you rush out to buy a card[not a bad idea to have two cards though] Contact Pentax Tech Support site - this may be an on going issue- and the camera is young enough to be swapped under warranty.

Small hair in view finder


That camera has a removable focusing screen. Usually the object(hair) is sitting on top of the focusing screen so the screen has to be dropped down to remove it. There is a clip(frame) accessable from the mirror box that needs to be un-hooked. The frame swings down and usually the screen and a brass shim(s) comes down with it. If your careful and don't actually remove the frame, screen and shim it's pretty straight forward to gently blow the hair out. After removing the hair, gently swing the frame up and clip it back in.If the frame, screen and shim actually fall out it's tricky getting them back in correctly. The screen is also very soft and scratches easily so much care is needed. If you're uncomfortable trying to attempt this then take the MZ50 to a good repair shop. We do this service free and usually while you wait. Other shops may charge you a fee to do it. If the hair is behind the eyepiece then the top cover has to be removed to get the hair out. That is a totally different problem and the camera will need to be repaired. Since the hair dosen't affect the image on the film, you may just want to live with it or have it removed when something else needs to be done when the camera has to be disassembled anyway. Hope this helps.
