There's a slide switch on the top of the camera, between the prism and the rewind knob.

You can download the manual from

Hello I have a Pentax spot matik film camera. This camera comes with a lense with thread ... I was thinking in buy some of your lenses ( rokinon) 800- 1600mm. I would like to know if it will work in my...


The hard part will be getting a T-mount for the old Pentax screw mount. If you already have one, you should have no trouble. It won't even matter which one you buy, since you'll be removing the mount that comes with it and using the old Pentax screw instead.

If you don't have a T-mount, then you're going to have to hunt for one. You don't want to buy anything that's marked "for Pentax", since anything current will be the Pentax-K bayonet mount, not the old Pentax screw mount.

There's quite a simple fix to this.

Disconnect the camera and turn it on. Press Menu and move to the the little 'tool icon' tab. Under 'USB connection', change the setting from PC to Pictbridge. Press OK. Connect your Optio to your PC and that should work.

Shutter wont fire, or auto focus


This sounds like mirror box motor problem ( see enclosed shot from our workshop ) : this cocks the shutter and controls mirror mechanism and when the drive dosnt work properly ( small nylon gear on the motor goes ) camera will develop the the sort of problems you describe.
Can be repaired but will cost $ 150-200 so it is relatively expensive repair.
