Care to be Taken During Handling
Before Using Your Camera
• When traveling, take the Worldwide Service Network listing that is included in the
package. This will be useful if you experience problems abroad.
• When the camera has not been used for a long time, confirm that it is still working
properly, particularly prior to taking important pictures (such as at a wedding or when
traveling). Contents of the recording cannot be guaranteed if recording, playback or
transferring your data to a computer, etc. is not possible due to a malfunction of your
camera or recording media (SD Memory Card), etc.
About the Battery and Charger
• To keep the battery in optimal condition, avoid storing it in a fully charged state or in
high temperatures.
• If the battery is left inserted and the camera is not used for a long time, the battery will
over-discharge and shorten the battery’s life.
• Charging the battery a day before use or on the day of use is recommended.
• The AC plug cord provided with this camera is developed exclusively for the battery
charger D-BC90. Do not use it with other devices.
Precautions on Carrying and Using Your Camera
• Do not subject the camera to high temperatures or high humidity. Do not leave the
camera in a vehicle, as the temperature can get very high.
• Do not subject the camera to strong vibrations, shocks, or pressure. Use a cushion to
protect the camera from vibrations of motorcycles, automobiles, or ships.
• The temperature range for camera use is 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F).
• The monitor may appear black at high temperatures, but will return to normal at
normal temperatures.
• The monitor may respond more slowly at low temperatures. This is due to liquid
crystal properties, and is not a malfunction.
• Sudden temperature changes will cause condensation on the inside and outside of
the camera. Place the camera in your bag or a plastic bag, and remove it after
temperature of the camera and surroundings are equalized.
• Avoid contact with garbage, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, or salt. These could
cause the camera to breakdown. Wipe the camera to dry off any rain or water drops.
• Do not press forcefully on the monitor. This could cause it to break or malfunction.
• Be careful not to overtighten the screw in the tripod socket when using a tripod.
5
Cleaning Your Camera
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol, or benzine.
• Use a lens brush to remove dust accumulated on the lens. Never use a spray blower
for cleaning as it may damage the lens.
• Please contact a PENTAX Service Center for professional cleaning of the CMOS
sensor. (This will involve a fee.)
Storing Your Camera
• Do not store the camera with preservatives or chemicals. Storage in high
temperatures and high humidity can cause mold to grow on the camera. Remove the
camera from its case and store it in a dry and well-ventilated place.
• Avoid using or storing the camera where it may be exposed to static electricity or
electrical interference.
• Avoid using or storing the camera in direct sunlight or in locations where it may be
exposed to rapid changes in temperature or to condensation.
• Periodic inspections are recommended every one to two years to maintain high
performance.
Other Precautions
• The SD Memory Card is equipped with a writeprotect switch. Setting the switch to LOCK
prevents new data from being recorded on the
card, the stored data from being deleted, and the
Write-protect
card from being formatted by the camera or
switch
computer.
• The SD Memory Card may be hot when removing
the card immediately after using the camera.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card or turn off the power while the card is being
accessed. This may cause the data to be lost or the card to be damaged.
• Do not bend the SD Memory Card or subject it to violent impact. Keep it away from
water and store away from high temperatures.
• Do not remove the SD Memory Card while formatting. The card may be damaged and
become unusable.
• Data on the SD Memory Card may be deleted in the following circumstances. We do
not accept any liability for data that is deleted if
1. the SD Memory Card is mishandled by the user.
2. the SD Memory Card is exposed to static electricity or electrical interference.
3. the SD Memory Card has not been used for a long time.
4. the SD Memory Card or the battery is removed while the card is being accessed.
• If the SD Memory Card is not used for a long time, the data on the card may become
unreadable. Be sure to regularly make a backup of important data on a computer.
• Format new SD Memory Cards. Also format SD Memory Cards previously used with
other cameras.
6
• Please note that deleting data stored on an SD Memory Card, or formatting an SD
Memory Card does not completely erase the original data. Deleted data can
sometimes be recovered using commercially available software. If you are going to
discard, give away or sell your SD Memory Card, you should ensure that the data on
the card is completely deleted or the card itself is destroyed if it contains any personal
or sensitive information.
• The data on your SD Memory Card should be managed at your own risk.

Understanding Brightness
When the brightness is correct and there are no overexposed or
underexposed areas, the graph peaks in the middle. If the image is
underexposed, the peak is on the left side, and if it is overexposed, the
peak is on the right side.

When the image is underexposed, the part to the left is cut off
(underexposed portions with no detail) and when the image is
overexposed, the part to the right is cut off (overexposed portions with no
detail).
This camera can be set so that it displays the Bright/Dark Area warning
during capture or playback mode.

A histogram shows the brightness
distribution of an image.The
horizontal axis represents brightness
(dark at the left and bright at the right)
and the vertical axis represents the
number of pixels.

Understanding Color Balance
Distribution of color intensity is displayed for each color in RGB Histogram
Display. If a color is partially cut off on one side, it indicates that the color
is under- or overexposed, that the light is very weak or strong in that color,
or that the white balance is incorrect.

• The image on the monitor may differ from the actual image captured if the
brightness of the subject is low or high.
• If any changes occur in the light source during shooting, the image on the
monitor may flicker. You can cut down on flicker by setting the power
frequency in [Flicker Reduction] (p.184) of the [R Set-up 1] menu to that
used in your region.
• If the camera position is changed rapidly during shooting, the image may not
be displayed with the appropriate brightness. Wait for the display to become
stable before shooting.
• Noise may appear on the monitor image when used in dark locations.
• The higher the sensitivity, the more noise and color unevenness may occur in
the monitor image and/or captured image.
• If you continue shooting for a prolonged period, the internal temperature of
the camera may increase, resulting in lower quality images. It is
recommended that you turn off the camera when not shooting. To prevent the
image quality from degrading, allow enough time for the camera to cool down
while shooting with long exposures or recording movies.
• If the internal temperature of the camera becomes high, l (temperature
warning) will appear on the monitor. If this happens, stop shooting or turn off
the monitor. If you continue shooting with the temperature warning displayed,
the camera will turn off.

Locking the Exposure Before Shooting
(AE Lock)
AE Lock is a function that locks the exposure (brightness) prior to taking a
picture. Use this when the subject is too small or is backlit and a proper
exposure setting cannot be obtained.
1
Assign [AE Lock] to the =/L button.
Refer to “Setting the =/L Button Operation” (p.152) for details.
2
Set the exposure, and press the
=/L button.
• You will hear a beep when AE Lock is activated and deactivated. The beep
can be turned off. (p.186)
• AE Lock is not available in p mode.
• If you want to also lock the exposure when the focus is locked, set [4. AE-L
with AF Locked] (p.72) of the [A Custom Setting 1] menu to [On].
• When the shutter speed or aperture value is changed while AE Lock is
engaged in a (Manual) mode, the combination of shutter speed and aperture
value changes while the exposure remains the same. For example, when the
shutter speed is 1/125 sec. and aperture value is F4 and these settings are
locked, the aperture value automatically changes to F8 if the shutter speed
is changed to 1/30 sec.
• When using a zoom lens whose maximum aperture varies depending on the
focal length, the combination of shutter speed and aperture value changes
depending on the zooming position even while AE Lock is engaged.
However, the exposure value does not change and the picture is taken at the
brightness level that was set when AE Lock was activated.

The camera locks the exposure at that
instant.

Lock is engaged.

Distortion
Distortion is a phenomenon in which the center of the image appears

Pincushion distortion
Barrel distortion
Lateral chromatic aberration
Lateral chromatic aberration is a phenomenon in which the
magnification of an image varies according to the colors (wavelengths
of light) when a picture was taken, and may cause a blurred image.
Chromatic aberration occurs more easily at shorter focal lengths.
139

Using the Flash
This chapter provides details on the built-in flash and
describes how to take pictures with an external flash.
Using the Built-in Flash ..................................... 216
Using an External Flash (Optional) .................. 220
216
Using the Built-in Flash
Flash Characteristics in Each Exposure Mode
Using the Flash in b Mode
• When taking a moving subject, you can use the flash to change the blur
effect.
• The aperture value automatically changes according to the ambient
brightness.
• Any desired shutter speed of 1/180 sec. or slower can be set for taking a
flash photograph.
Using the Flash in c Mode
• You can set the desired aperture value to take a flash photograph when
you want to change the depth of field or shoot a subject farther away.
• The shutter speed automatically changes with the ambient brightness.
• The shutter speed automatically changes over a range from 1/180 sec.
to a slow shutter speed that reduces camera shake (the slowest shutter
speed depends on the focal length of the lens in use).
The shutter speed is locked at 1/180 sec. when a lens other than a DA,
DA L, D FA, FA J, FA or F lens is used.
9
Using the Slow-speed Sync Flash
Using the Flash
You can use Slow-speed Sync in . (Night Scene Portrait) of H mode
or b mode when shooting portraits with the sunset in the background.
Both the portrait and the background are captured beautifully. G and H
can be used in e or c mode.
• Slow-speed Sync slows down the shutter speed. To avoid camera shake,
either set [Shake Reduction] to Q (On), or set it to R (Off) and use a tripod.
Note that the picture will also blur if the subject moves.
• Slow-speed Sync can also be performed with an external flash.
217
Using the Trailing Curtain Sync Flash
Trailing Curtain Sync discharges a flash immediately before the shutter
closes. When shooting moving objects with a slow shutter speed, Trailing
Curtain Sync and Slow-speed Sync produce different effects depending
on when the flash is discharged.
For example, when shooting a moving car with Trailing Curtain Sync,
trailing light is captured while the shutter is open and the flash captures the
car immediately before the shutter is closed. Therefore, the picture will
include a sharp, well-lit car with trailing light behind it.
Slow-speed Sync
(Leading Curtain Sync)
Trailing Curtain Sync
Trailing Curtain Sync slows down the shutter speed.To avoid camera shake,
either set [Shake Reduction] to Q (On), or set it to R (Off) and use a tripod.

218
Distance and Aperture when Using the Built-in Flash
Relationships among the guide number, aperture and distance must be
considered when shooting with the flash to obtain a correct exposure.
Calculate the shooting distance or aperture value in the following way, and
adjust the shooting conditions if the flash output is not sufficient.

Calculating Shooting Distance from Aperture Value
The following equation calculates the effective distance of the flash for
aperture values.
Maximum flash distance L1 = Guide number ÷ Aperture value
Minimum flash distance L2 = Maximum flash distance ÷ 5 *
* The value 5 used in the formula above is a fixed value
which applies only when using the built-in flash alone.
9
Using the Flash
Example:
When the sensitivity is ISO 200 and the aperture value is F5.6:
L1 = 17 ÷ 5.6 = approx. 3 (m)
L2 = 3 ÷ 5 = approx. 0.6 (m)
Therefore, the flash can be used in a range of about 0.6 m to 3 m.
However, the built-in flash in this camera cannot be used when the
distance is 0.7 m or less. When the flash is used at distances closer
than 0.7 m, it causes vignetting in the picture corners, light is
distributed unevenly and the picture may be overexposed.
Calculating Aperture Value from Shooting Distance
The following equation calculates the aperture value for shooting distances.
Aperture value F = Guide number ÷ Shooting distance
Example:
When the sensitivity is ISO 200 and the shooting distance is 4 m, the
aperture value is:
F = 17 ÷ 4 = approx. 4.2
If the resulting number (4.2, in the above example) is not available
as a lens aperture, a smaller number that is closest (4.0, in the
above example) is generally used.
219
Lens Compatibility with the Built-in Flash
Depending on the lens used with this camera, even if a lens without a hood
is attached, the use of the built-in flash may not be available or may be
limited due to vignetting.
DA, DA L, D FA, FA J, and FA lenses not listed below can be used without
problems.

Removing Dust with a Blower
Keep the shutter open when cleaning the CMOS sensor with a blower.
Please contact a PENTAX Service Center for professional cleaning as the
CMOS sensor is a precision part. Cleaning services involve a fee.
• The self-timer lamp blinks while cleaning the sensor.
• This camera features a CMOS sensor corresponding to the Shake Reduction
system, and it may generate a vibration sound while cleaning the CMOS
sensor. It is not a malfunction.
• Do not use a spray type blower.
• Do not clean the sensor when the mode dial is set to p.
• To prevent dirt and dust from accumulating on the CMOS sensor, keep the
body mount cover on the camera when a lens is not attached.
• When the battery level is low, [Not enough battery power remaining to clean
sensor] is displayed on the monitor.
• It is recommended to use the AC Adapter kit K-AC1202 (optional) when
cleaning the sensor. If you do not use the AC adapter kit, install the battery
with ample power remaining. If the battery capacity becomes low during
cleaning, the self-timer lamp blinks rapidly. In this case, stop cleaning
immediately.
• Do not put the tip of the blower inside the lens mount area. If the power is
turned off, this may cause damage to the shutter and CMOS sensor.

WARRANTY POLICY
263
All PENTAX cameras purchased through authorized bona fide
photographic distribution channels are guaranteed against defects of
material or workmanship for a period of twelve months from date of
purchase. Service will be rendered, and defective parts will be replaced
without cost to you within that period, provided the equipment does not
show evidence of impact, sand or liquid damage, mishandling, tampering,
battery or chemical corrosion, operation contrary to operating instructions,
or modification by an unauthorized repair shop. The manufacturer or its
authorized representatives shall not be liable for any repair or alterations
except those made with its written consent and shall not be liable for
damages from delay or loss of use or from other indirect or consequential
damages of any kind, whether caused by defective material or
workmanship or otherwise; and it is expressly agreed that the liability of
the manufacturer or its representatives under all guarantees or warranties,
whether expressed or implied, is strictly limited to the replacement of parts
as hereinbefore provided. No refunds will be made on repairs by nonauthorized PENTAX service facilities.
10
Appendix
Procedure During 12-month Warranty Period
Any PENTAX which proves defective during the 12-month warranty period
should be returned to the dealer from whom you purchased the equipment
or to the manufacturer. If there are no representatives of the manufacturer
in your country, send the equipment to the manufacturer, with postage
prepaid. In this case, it will take a considerable length of time before the
equipment can be returned to you owing to the complicated customs
procedures required. If the equipment is covered by warranty, repairs will
be made and parts replaced free of charge, and the equipment will be
returned to you upon completion of servicing. If the equipment is not
covered by warranty, regular charges of the manufacturer or of its
representatives will apply. Shipping charges are to be borne by the owner.
If your PENTAX was purchased outside of the country where you wish to
have it serviced during the warranty period, regular handling and servicing
fees may be charged by the manufacturer’s representatives in that
country. Notwithstanding this, your PENTAX returned to the manufacturer
will be serviced free of charge according to this procedure and warranty
policy. In any case, however, shipping charges and customs clearance
fees to be borne by the sender. To prove the date of your purchase when
264
required, please keep the receipt or bills covering the purchase of your
equipment for at least a year. Before sending your equipment for servicing,
please make sure that you are sending it to the manufacturer’s authorized
representatives or their approved repair shops, unless you are sending it
directly to the manufacturer. Always obtain a quotation for the service
charge, and only after you accept the quoted service charge, instruct the
service station to proceed with the servicing.
• This warranty policy does not affect the customer’s statutory
rights.
• The local warranty policies available from PENTAX distributors in
some countries can supersede this warranty policy. Therefore, we
recommend that you review the warranty card supplied with your
product at the time of purchase, or contact the PENTAX distributor
in your country for more information and to receive a copy of the
warranty policy.

Used electrical/electronic equipment and batteries must be
treated separately and in accordance with legislation that
requires proper treatment, recovery and recycling of these

By disposing of these products correctly you will help ensure
that the waste undergoes the necessary treatment, recovery
and recycling and thus prevent potential negative effects on the
environment and human health which could otherwise arise
due to inappropriate waste handling.
If a chemical symbol is added beneath the symbol shown above, in
accordance with the Battery Directive, this indicates that a heavy metal
(Hg = Mercury, Cd = Cadmium, Pb = Lead) is present in the battery at a
concentration above an applicable threshold specified in the Battery
Directive.
For more information about collection and recycling of used products,
please contact your local authorities, your waste disposal service or the
