Having problems with your Pentax K100D Digital Camera ?

No pic framing on LCD display - playback is OK

\015 My Pentax K100D LCD display will not frame a picture. I am forced to use the viewfinder instead. The picture is taken and the Instant Review will display the picture on the LCD display. Playback of past pictures works fine. I know the picture framing on the LCD used to work b/c I don't like using the viewfinder unless I'm outside in bright sun.Any ideas?Thanks. T\015

Answers :

This feature is called "Live View" and the K100D does not have it.

If you want this feature, you have to buy one of the more recent digital SLRs such as the Pentax K20D (NOTE: I don't think the K200D has this feature) or the newest Canon Digital Rebel, whatever model its up to.

Or . . .

You can simply take lots and lost of pictures and hope that one turns out that you are happy with.

That's what the old professionals used to do with their film cameras and no digital preview (before or after)! <grin>

Take care & Happy Imaging!

Piximodo Can't get the pixtures to display on this digital picture frame. I am using an external 32 Gig SD card with approx 2 Gig of pixtures on it. All pixtures are most pics are 1280 x 960 / 960 by 1280 with all the rest of the pics being less resolution. All pics are JPEG files. The frame will read the memory card and the files on the display but as soon as I select a picture with the enter button the display goes black. I left it alone for an hour thinking that maybe it just needed time

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help.

If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine.

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!


Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
