How do you change the shutter speeds on an pentax

You can't.

In Auto Pict mode the camera selects the best of the pre-set Scene modes for the photograph which you're about to take. It's basically a variation of fully automatic mode, so the camera selects everything for you.

Auto Pict and Auto are designed to let anyone pick up your camera and take a fully automated snapshot without needing to worry about what settings to use.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

Would olympus software work with a pentax camera

It depends on what you want the software to do with the camera. If you simply want to download the pictures then any photo cataloging program such as Picasa will do the job.If you want to edit your photos, photo editing programs don't care where the photos came from. You can use any photo editing program, such as PhotoShop or the GIMP.

Sdhc memorty card in a pentax optio e10 camera

The E10 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

PROBLEM WITH PENTAX OPTIO E10

Sounds like battery life is gone. If there rechargeable batteries they might not be holding a charge anymore.

If your camera has a power cord that plug into your camera to charge the battery does it do the same thing?

If it doesn't have a power cord, what happens when you plug the camera into your computer?

My Pentax e30 will not record video files

http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/man-pdf/optio-e30.pdf Instruction manual Does the SD card have enough room / is it fast enough for video? (the E30 records Standard def video so it should be OK) Do you get any error messages at all? Does it allow you to record video and then fail, or can you not activate recording in the first place?
