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 optimum 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-BC68P. 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
temperatures 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 the monitor with excessive force. 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 camera 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.)
• Periodic inspections are recommended every one to two years to maintain high
performance.
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.
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 files 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.

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.
The shape and the distribution of the
(Dark) ←Brightness→ (Bright)
histogram before and after shooting
Dark portions
Bright portions
tell you whether the exposure level
and contrast are correct or not, and lets you decide if you need to adjust
the exposure and take a picture again.
1Adjusting the Exposure (p.77)
1Adjusting Brightness (p.123)
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.

Distribution of color intensity is displayed for each color in the RGB histogram.
The right side of the graphs look similar for images that have the white
balance adjusted well. If only one color is lopsided to the left, that color is too
intense.

• The image on the monitor may differ from the captured image if the
brightness of the subject is low or high.
• If any changes occur in the light source during shooting, the image may flicker.
You can cut down on flicker by setting the power frequency in [Flicker
Reduction] 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.
• Images cannot be displayed on the monitor while data is being saved to an
SD Memory Card.
• 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.

used in a long time, or when [Battery depleted] appears, recharge the battery.
38
2
4
When the battery is fully charged, remove the battery from
the battery charger.
Getting Started
• Do not use the provided Battery Charger D-BC68P to charge batteries other
than D-LI68. Charging other batteries may cause damage or heating.
• Replace the battery with a new one in the following cases:
- If the indicator lamp blinks or does not light after the battery is inserted
correctly
- If the battery starts to run down more quickly even after being charged (the
battery may have reached the end of its service life)
The maximum charging time is approximately 115 minutes (it depends on
temperature and remaining battery power). Charge in a location where the
temperature is between 0°C and 40°C.
Inserting/Removing the Battery
• Insert the battery correctly. If the battery is inserted incorrectly, it may not be
removed. Wipe the electrodes of the battery with a soft dry cloth before
inserting.
• Do not open the battery cover or remove the battery while the power is on.
• Be careful as the camera or battery may become hot when the camera is
used continuously for a long period of time.
• Remove the battery when you will not use the camera for a long while. The
battery may leak and damage the camera if left installed during prolonged
periods of non-use. If the removed battery will not be used for six months or
longer, charge the battery for about 30 minutes before storing it. Be sure to
recharge the battery every six to twelve months.
• Store the battery in a location where the temperature will remain below room
temperature. Avoid locations with high temperatures.
• The date and time may be reset if you leave the battery out of the camera for
long periods of time. If this occurs, follow the procedure described in “Setting
the Date and Time” (p.48) to set the current date and time.

10 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 ..................................... 208
Using an External Flash (Optional) .................. 211
208
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.
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.
Using the Slow-speed Sync
You can use Slow-speed Sync in . (Night Scene Portrait) of H (Scene)
mode or b (Shutter Priority Automatic Exposure) 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
(Program Automatic Exposure) or c (Aperture Priority Automatic
Exposure) mode.
10
Using the Flash
• Slow-speed Sync slows down the shutter speed. Use the Shake Reduction
function or turn off the Shake Reduction function and use a tripod to avoid
camera shake. The picture will also blur if the subject moves.
• Slow-speed Sync can also be performed with an external flash.
209
Using the Trailing Curtain Sync
Trailing Curtain Sync discharges the 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. Use the Shake Reduction
function, or turn off the Shake Reduction function and use a tripod to avoid
camera shake.
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 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.
Maximum flash distance L1 = Guide number ÷ Aperture value
Minimum flash distance L2 = Maximum flash distance ÷ 6 *
* The value 6 used in the formula above is a fixed value
which applies only when using the built-in flash alone.
Example)
When the sensitivity is ISO 200 and the aperture value is F2.0
L1 = 7 ÷ 2.0 = approx. 3.5 (m)
L2 = 3.5 ÷ 6 = approx. 0.6 (m)
Therefore, the flash can be used in the range of about 0.6 m to 3.5 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 closer than 0.7
m, it causes vignetting in the picture corners, light is distributed
unevenly and a 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 3 m, the
aperture value is:
F = 7 ÷ 3 = approx. 2.3
If the resulting number (2.3, in the above example) is not available
as a lens aperture, a smaller number that is closest (2.0, in the
above example) is generally used.
10
Using the Flash
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.
The built-in flash is not available due to vignetting

Using an External Flash (Optional)

• When an external flash is attached directly to the hot shoe of the camera, the
camera’s center of gravity is greatly shifted, making it difficult to take pictures.
When using an external flash, it is recommended to use an extension cord to
separate the camera and flash. (p.213)
• To use an AF160FC flash with the camera, a commercially available step-up
ring or similar accessory is needed.
• To use the Auto flash mode of an AF540FGZ or AF360FGZ flash, set the
camera's capture mode to a (Manual Exposure) mode and built-in flash to a
(Flash Off).
10
Using the Flash
• The built-in flash will not discharge if the camera is connected to an external flash.
• Flashes with reversed polarity (the center contact on the hot shoe is minus)
cannot be used due to the risk of damaging the camera and flash.
212
Using P-TTL Mode
You can use the P-TTL auto flash with an AF540FGZ, AF360FGZ,
AF200FG or AF160FC flash unit.
1
Remove the cover of the hot shoe, and attach the external
flash.
2
Turn on the camera and the external flash.
3
Set the external flash mode to [P-TTL].
4
Confirm that the external flash is fully charged, and then
take a picture.
• The maximum sync speed available with an external flash is 1/250 sec.
• The P-TTL auto flash is only available with an AF540FGZ, AF360FGZ,
AF200FG or AF160FC flash unit.
• For details such as operation method and effective distance, please refer to
the external flash manual.
• The flash does not discharge if the subject is bright enough when the flash
mode is set to C or i. Therefore, it may not be suitable for daylight-sync
shooting.
• Never pop up the built-in flash when any external flash unit is attached to the
camera. The built-in flash will hit the external flash.
10
Red-eye Reduction
Using the Flash
As with the built-in flash, the red-eye reduction function is available
with an external flash. The red-eye reduction function works by
discharging the flash twice even when only an external flash is used.
However, this function may not be available on some flashes or may
have restrictions for usage conditions. Refer to the chart on p.211.
213
Connecting an External Flash with an
Extension Cord
Attach the Hot Shoe Adapter FG (optional) to the camera hot shoe and an
Off-Camera Shoe Adapter F (optional) to the bottom of the external flash,
and connect these with the Extension Cord F5P (optional) as shown in the
illustration below. The Off-Camera Shoe Adapter F can be mounted to
your tripod using the tripod screw.
The built-in flash will not discharge if the camera is connected to an
external flash.
• Do not combine with accessories that have a different number of contacts,
such as a Hot Shoe Grip, as a malfunction may occur.
• Combining with flashes from other manufacturers may cause equipment
breakdown.

WARRANTY POLICY
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.

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
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.
243
• 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.

Information for Users on Collection and Disposal of Old
Equipment and Used Batteries
1. In the European Union
These symbols on the products, packaging and/or
accompanying documents mean that used electrical and
electronic equipment and batteries should not be mixed with
general household waste.
Used electrical/electronic equipment and batteries must be
treated separately and in accordance with legislation that
requires proper treatment, recovery and recycling of these
products.
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
point of sale where you purchased the products.
2. In other countries outside the EU
These symbols are only valid in the European Union. If you wish to discard
used products, please contact your local authorities or dealer and ask for
the correct method of disposal.

Appendix
For Switzerland: Used electrical/electronic equipment can be returned free
of charge to the dealer, even when you don't purchase a new product.
