Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Need a 'User' or 'Operating Manual'.

In the "Manuals and Guides" section, the manual shown that is named: "Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera User Guide" is actually NOT for a Pentax istDS digital camera, it is in fact for the Pentax ist FILM camera! Can anyone supply a photo copy or the complete manual (which might be difficult!) or allow me to borrow the manual and copy it, or supply a copy in an Acrobat PDF file?

Need to download canon powershot SD550 camera manual

Canon has several User Manuals for the SD550, as well as manuals for their software, on the product site. See . (If needed click on Brochures and Manuals link; then expand the Guides and Manuals section.) The full titles aren't given. It just gives the Canon product name and then User (before hiding the rest). The first one with User in the title is the Basic guide. The second one is the Advanced Guide.

I hope this helps.

You need to go to the support section of the Pentax website and engage in a live chat with a service tech using your computer or even a phone conversation to resolve your problem.

First make sure the camera is not set to No Flash on the shooting mode dial.Also, in P, Tv, Av or M modes the flash reverts to manual and must be raised manually by pressing the button next to the viewfinder.

Can *ist DL do High-Speed/Wireless Flash?

According to the manual (page 153), the DL DOES support P-TTL flash, with the built-in or external flash, but only supports high-speed flash with an external flash. What I'm wondering is, what is high-speed sync flash useful for? The only thing I can think of is fill-flash outdoors.
