Can I put pics from my internal memory onto a memory card? Or how do I download to the computer from the internal memory?

You can copy pictures from the internal memory to the memory card by using the Copy command in the Playback menu. Press the MENU button in playback mode. Use cursor-up/down to select "Copy image/sound" and press cursor-right. Select the camera-icon-right-arrow-"SD" and press the OK button.

Full details are in the "Copying Files" section of the manual (page 105 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Since you declined to give us the model number of your Pentax Optio camera, the best I can do is to direct you to the manufacturer's web site at

Under "Type of Product" select "Cameras". Under "Type of Camera" select "Compact". Then under "Model Name" select the appropriate one.

How do you change the shutter speeds on an pentax k100 super, when it is on the AUTO PICT setting?

You can't.

In Auto Pict mode the camera selects the best of the pre-set Scene modes for the photograph which you're about to take. It's basically a variation of fully automatic mode, so the camera selects everything for you.

Auto Pict and Auto are designed to let anyone pick up your camera and take a fully automated snapshot without needing to worry about what settings to use.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

S40 : Blurry left corner

I think the first couple of pics gets a blurry corner, and it is quite noticeable.. I hear that it was a problem with some Optio cam but not all. Maybe you could check with Pentax for a replace ? I know it quite anoying but it deserves a serious investigation. And btw, thank you for the samples, great pics. I would be really interested in seeing full size (origianl) images and some portraits. Can you post some on ? They have 10 MEGS accounts for free.
