Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?

Pentax k10d won't produce accurate prints. Prints look muddy

\015 Pentax k10dI have problems printing what I see on my monitor screen, or in my camera screen. I have calibrated my computer monitor, and I have tried 3 different printers.\015\012\015\012It doesn't happen all the time. Could this be a camera problem?\015

Answers :

Hi\015\012It's not likely to be a camera problem, in fact it's highly unlikely.\015\012
\015\012The big issue with printing colour is (as you've found) matching what you see on your monitor to what comes out on the paper.\015\012If you are serious about printing then you need to profile your system. I'm guessing that when you say you calibrated your monitor you just did a simple grey point adjustment to set the gamma. That's all very well but the printer is a completely separate item. It doesn't know that you adjusted the grey point and so it carries on as before (nor is there any way of it knowing). \015\012Your printer has to be set up as well - and it has to be set for whatever ink and paper combination you are using - and it will be different for each different type of paper.\015\012
\015\012If you look in the small ads in the more serious photo mags you should find adverts for companies who will provide you with profiling services.\015\012
\015\012There is a system called 'Colorsync' which is supposed to automatically do this for you. It works for some but not for others.

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing! Newbie in the extreme and ready to go back to my MX !!

My friend dropped my Pentax T10 whilst it was open and now the lens wont stay out....it simply goes straight back in again - doesnt look damaged in any way?


It is very possible it has been knocked out of alignment. When you look directly at the lens. Check the gap all the way around make sure it is the same. If not sometimes you can "click" the lens back in. Beyond that I would either have the camera rep ... Pentax Optio E10 Digital Camera

I have a pentax optio 8.1 megapixel camera. I have a 1gb scandisk. The memory is full. I want to delete some of the pictures. When I go to a picture, I push the trash can button. The response is the trash can followed by All images/sounds. I don't want to delete all the pictures, just the one I am looking at.
