How do I use my old manual lense with a K200D?


Move the automatic/manual focus switch (on the lower right of the lens mount as you look into the lens) to manual. Focus manually by turning the focus adjustment on the lens itself - align the split image as you would with your old camera and take the picture.
(Use a handheld light meter and set the f/stop and shutter speed appropriately - the K200D doesn't have a visible meter. I would recommend bracketing your exposures -up a stop and down a stop from the 'appropriate' stop.)

How can i find timer in my Pentax K200d camera?


Press the Fn button to bring up the Fn menu. Press up on the four-way controller to bring up the [Drive Mode] screen. Use left/right to select the one-handed clock. Press down, then use left/right to select the one-handed clock (the one WITHOUT the 2s caption). Press OK. Start the self-timer by fully pressing the shutter release button

It's all on page 117-118 of the manual you can download at

I have the same camera and to my knowledge, a 'live' view with the LCD screen is not a feature with this camera. All pictures are taken through the eyepiece and then reviewed on the LCD screen. BC

The Pentax 200d does not preview the picture on the LCD. You compose the picture in the view finder. After the picture is taken you can look at the picture only when you push the bottom left hand button. I would contact Pentax Inc. USA at 600 12th. St., Golden, Colorado 80401, for a French manual or info on how to get one.

How do I get to see the pic before I take it on pentax k200d?


If it's a DSLR the picture most likely can't be displayed on the LCD screen (because it's an SLR) - I think the newest ones do this now, but older ones (even a year or two older) don't.

On a DSLR such as the Pentax K200d, which I have, if you want to see what your picture will look like before you take it, you could use the picture preview function. There is a ring around the button you push to take the picture - turn the ring clockwise slightly and it will take a preview picture.

Hope this helps!
