The 600D is better suited for filming, with it's folding screen. It is also a little bigger, which I personally prefer. Drawback is that the 600D has the digic4 image processor dompared to the new digic5 in the 100D. Makes very little difference for even advanced photographers. It gives the 100D a higher framerate for filming, so it kind of depends what you want to do with it. Don't let Megapixel numbers fool you: a second hand 60D is a better built camera. (all 100-series are all plastic and have lower quality knobs than any 10-series, which are magnesium and better build quality)

I have Pentax 100D and using Ni-MH battery. But battery is going empty very quickly after few photos


Sounds like, due to age, the batteries aren't able to hold their charge well anymore. I'd suggest picking up a new set of Ni-MH batteries.

My flash is not working on my Pentax 100D. It will not focus because of that. When I set it to no flash, it takes the pic. What am I doing? I have been using this camera since 2007 with no problems at...


Your circuit board is likely fried. If it is under an extended warranty, send it in and try to get it repaired. I had the same issue following a loud pop when using the flash on my K100D. You can try using a friend's flash but there is no guarantee that it will work, won't damage the flash, or do anything. If the friend's flash works, then you are better off buying an external flash than repairing the pop-up one because it will be roughly the same cost, and an external flash will yield better results than the pop-up ever could.
If the other flash doesn't work, then you need to send it in for repair because the circuits are definitely fried.
Thanks for choosing FixYa!

My m20 pentax is on green mode & powers off after powered on


Do you want to disable the green mode? Is that what you want to happen?

If so, all you have to do is to press the Green button near the four-way controller.
