No. You'll need one of the more modern flashes designed for Pentax Digital flashes, specifically those with P-TTL Capability.

How do I connect my K7 to a 1394 socket


Hi,

Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:

Available Ports:

  • USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
  • Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
  • Printer interfaces: n/a

You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.

I hope this helps!

If you mean the thermometer, the camera's internal temperature has gotten too high. See page 156 of the manual: http://c758710.r10.cf2.rackcdn.com/files/support/manual/426_1314745050-265503871_manual.pdf

What is the best to manjually use all the setting of my Pentax K7?


The K7 is such a complex camera that it would be impossible to explain what to do without writing you a book. As it happens, there is a book that explains in detail, every feature of the camera. It's called the "Magic Lantern Guide" Pentax K7. If you Google "magic lantern guides" it will take you to the site where you can order the book.

Please help. Want to buy a Pentax K7, will these lenses work. Pentax-F Fish-eye 1:3.5-4.5 17-28 TAMRON AF 70-300 1:4-5.6 LD Tele-Macro 1:2 Sigma APO 170-500 1:5-6.3 My exist camera is a Pentax MZ-50


yes they will, I have a 70-300 myself.

As a rule, ANY k-mount lens will work on any of the new pentax cameras to some extent.

At any rate you can shoot some very nice pic with even the oldest lenses. Manually ofcourse.

With an adapter you can even use m42 screw lenses too.

I have a Pentax K100D and occasionaly when I push to button to take a picture it does not work. I have to turn off the camera and then try it again. It is in Auto mode. Is this a "fixable issue"...


When this happens, does the battery indicator show no battery power? If so, this is a common issue and most owners check the battery indicator first before snapping and if it shows empty, they do the "turn off/on" routine. The newer cameras (K7, Kx, Kr,K5) do not seem to have this problem.

Pentax istd built in flash goes off when taking picture but picture is underexposed but if I use a different flash in manual mode the camera works ok


What distance are the subjects when using the built-in flash?

The built-in flash is optimized for use between 0.7m (2.3ft) and 4m (13ft).

You could also try adjusting the ISO setting (higher ISO requires less light) or adjusting the EV value to a positive number to increase the exposure.

The camera would not start up to take photos.


Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Pentax K100 problem


Might be temporary lack of communication between lens and body - try cleaning the contacts on both gently with a lint-free cloth and a very little IPA.

Pentax istD won't take pictures


i found this which seems similar

http://www.pentaxuser.co.uk/forum/topic/ist-D--HELP-444/p-0#comm_2164

"I know this is late, but the issue sounds to me like the aperture ring is not on A. and if this is a manual lens then you have to set the mode to hyper-program mode and set it to work with "other than A" on aperture."

----
this was my issue, i never knew that has i bought the camera 2nd hand without a manual - your issue might be something else but it's worth posting just incase
