Question about Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera

1 Answer

Petax ist DL Focus

Maybe my memory is going but I thought when I tried the camera in the store the red box stayed lit until you took the picture. When I got my camera home the box flashes for a split second and goes off. Is this normal? also sometimes two boxes flash is this also correct?

It could be that your lighting situation inside is darker than in the store. Since the Pentax *st DL does not have an anti-shake sensor like other new cameras, it could be telling you that the low level light will not support the aperture setting you have to acuratley stay focused.
Try using a tripod and a lower aperture setting.

Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Re-attach the lens and make sure the ring (if you have one) is set to "A".

Hello I have Pentax IST DL just took out of case put new batteries in did not work battery light came on. Tried again came on but did not take photo. Then turned of again, tried lots of new battery. ...

The early ist cameras had a battery indicator problem which Pentax never addressed. Most owners learned to live with it by turning it off and on several times until it showed full power.

Using a 500mm fixed aperture lens on a Pentax ist

Use "exposure compensation" (the button with a plus/minus symbol). It allows you to lighten (toward the + side) or darken (toward the - side).

Flash on ist DL

Looks like its true... Another major disadvantage. Removing TTL means removing one more hardware piece - TTL sensor. Pentax removed almost every nice feature, which needs some aditional or more expensive hardware: no TTL flash, less AF points, pentamirror... Seems like I bought Ds right in time.
