Pentax Did you ever get an answer on your pentax problem. I have a similar problem with my Pentax K10 - the Diaphragm release isnt working properly, my photos are dark as a result.

No.. someone sent me copies of photos of the mechanism. In my case, the little level that controls the aperature is not going back into place but no one seems to know how to take it apart and reset it. I will eventually take it apart very carefully (you know how springs just jump out at ya). When I do I will post it. Don't hold your breath right now as I'm recovering from surgery but I expect sometime towards the end of the month.

How to set timer on pentax k10


The manual for the K10 is available at

http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/product/K10D_Manual.pdf

pp.77-79 details operation of the self-timer.

Basically, use the "Fn" button to bring up the menu. Press up on the four-way controller to select Drive Mode. Then you have two self-timer options. The first sets up a 12-second delay. The second is a 2-second delay.

Unfortunately, the manual offers no other method for setting a self-timer time.

If you are talking about date and time, that starts on p.56 in the manual. Basically, enter the menu system in Playback mode, choose Set-up, choose Custom setting, then select the Date setup option. There are a series of options there for formatting and setting the day, month, year, hour, and minutes.

I am looking to buy a Pentax k10 D DSLR camera and I was wondering whether or not my 55-200 mm pentax lens from the seventies would fit on it. Any idea?


Greetings fffffjffffff,

It would really depend on the mount the previous lens has versus the mount on the new body. The advantage is that majority of the time you can utilize lenses on different bodies of slr cameras, as long as you stay within the same manufacturer.

Thanks,

Dorothy

Firmware Update


save the firmware file on your sd card, then you have to find the menu in your camera, to load it in camera memory, make sure your battery is fully charged or it will not work.

SLR not working


The lens you are talking about has either:
1)a faulty diaphragm mechanism ( lens stays closed at f 22 or f 16 when you attach it to the camera instead of opening fully as it should ) . or
2) the lens is fine but the diaphragm coupling mechanism inside mirror box ( on the left hand side if viewed from the front ) is not engaging the lens properly so that your lens stays fully closed ( F 22 /16 ) : because diaphragm stays fully closed image in viewfinder appears v. dark.
Solution ? have a camera technician take a look but my guess is that the diaphragm needs cleaning and it should not cost you more than $ 80 bucks.

IstD shutter release problem


I've had similar problems with my Pentax Super-A on an intermittent basis. If you haven't replaced the batteries I suggest you try that first. Not sure why, but that has sorted my problem out quite a few times (even when the existing batteries still have a fair amount of juice left in them).
