Question about Pentax K100D Digital Camera
My LCD monitor stopped working while I'm framing the picture. It works for picture playback, and when I change modes, but not while I'm taking the picture. In other words, I have to use the viewfinder only. Help!
K100D has not "live view" option. Thats why you cant use the LCD monitor while framing your pictures.
No need to send your camera to Pentax for this BTW.

Jackboy is right
Most of the SLRs that were available up until recently only had a viewfinder option for framing your photo. It makes you take a better photo when the view finder is on your face - the distance when using the LCD screen makes it hard to keep the camera steady.

This is the case with SLR cameras. When you look through the viewfinder you are looking at what the lens sees through a mirror/prism/lens system and the 'image' does not get to the capture device until you press the release. Then the mirror lifts and the image impinges on the CCD. There are a few camera that allow you to do both but this is not one of them.

The interface IC ( between the main CPU and the CCD sensor ) seems faulty . Camera should go to the Pentax agents unfortunately.
