following symbols.
Warning This symbol indicates that violating this item could
cause serious personal injury.
Caution This symbol indicates that violating this item could
cause minor or medium personal injury, or material loss.
Warning
• Do not disassemble or modify the camera. High voltage areas are present inside
the camera, with the risk of electric shock.
• If the camera interior is exposed due to dropping or otherwise damaging the
camera, never touch the exposed portion. There is the risk of electric shock.
• Wrapping the strap around your neck is dangerous. Take care that small children

• Do not look directly at the sun through the camera, as viewing the sun may
damage your eyes, and / or parts of the camera (e.g.: shutter curtains, etc.)
• Be sure to store batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance
immediately if accidentally swallowed.
• Always use the AC adapter specified exclusively for this product, with the
specified power and voltage. Using an AC adapter not exclusive to this product,
or using the exclusive AC adapter with an unspecified power or voltage can
cause a fire, electric shock, or camera breakdown.
• If any irregularities occur during use, such as smoke or a strange odor, stop use
immediately, remove the batteries or the AC adapter, and contact your nearest
PENTAX service center. Continued use could cause a fire or electric shock.
• During thunderstorms, unplug and discontinue use of the AC adapter. Continued
use could cause equipment failure, a fire, or electric shock.
Caution
• Do not short the battery or dispose of the battery in fire. Do not disassemble the
battery. The battery could explode or catch fire.
• Do not charge any batteries other than rechargeable Ni-MH batteries. The
battery could explode or catch fire. Of the batteries that can be used in this
camera, only the Ni-MH battery can be recharged.
• Remove the battery from the camera immediately if it becomes hot or begins to
smoke. Be careful not to burn yourself during removal.
• Some portions of the camera heat up during use. There is the risk of low
temperature burns when holding such portions for long periods.
• Do not place your finger on the flash when it is discharging as there is a risk of
burns.
2
PRECAUTIONS FOR BATTERY USAGE
• Misuse of the battery can cause hazards such as leakage, overheating,
explosion, etc. The battery should be inserted correctly with regard to polarity (+
and -) marked on the battery and the camera.
• Battery performance may be temporarily hindered in low temperatures, but will
recover in normal temperatures.
• Keep a spare battery on hand for replacement convenience when shooting
outdoors or while traveling.
• If the built-in flash is used continuously, the battery may become warm, but it
does not mean that the battery is faulty; it is one of the battery's characteristics.
• Replace the batteries at the same time. Do not mix battery brands, type or an old
battery with a new one. It may cause explosion or overheating.
Handling the Camera
• Always confirm that the camera is working properly when the camera has not
been used for a long time, or before important occasions (weddings, trips, etc.).
PENTAX is not responsible for consequential damages (costs incurred for
photography, lost profits, etc.) arising from failure of this product.
• Do not clean the product with organic solvents such as thinner, alcohol, or benzene.
• Do not subject to high temperatures or high humidity. Do not leave the camera in
a vehicle, as the temperature can get very high.
• Do not store the camera with preservatives and chemicals. Storage in high
temperatures and high humidity can cause molding. Remove from case and
store in a dry and well-ventilated location.
• This camera is not waterproof, and cannot be used in the rain or where the
camera could get wet.
• 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.
• The LCD display may appear black under high temperatures, but will return to
normal as temperatures normalize.
• The LCD display may respond more slowly at low temperatures. This is due to
liquid crystal properties, and is not a fault.
• Periodic inspections are recommended every one to two years to maintain high
performance.
• Sudden temperature changes will cause condensation on the inside and outside
of the camera. Place the camera in your bag or a plastic bag, retrieving the
camera after decreasing the temperature difference.
• Avoid contact with garbage, mud, sand, dust, water, toxic gases, or salts. These
could cause a camera breakdown. Wipe dry any rain or water drops on the camera.
• Use a blower or lens brush to remove dust accumulated on the lens or viewfinder.
Never use a spray blower for cleaning as it may damage the lens or viewfinder screen.
• See “Precautions When Using a CF Card” (p.151) for details on the compact
flash memory card (CF Card).
• Please do not press forcefully on the LCD monitor. This could cause breakage or
malfunction.

Camera Characteristics
1
Before using your camera
• Uses a 23.5×15.7mm CCD with 6.1 mega-pixels of effective pixels for
high precision and a wide dynamic range.
• Small, light, and highly rigid among digital cameras with interchangeable
lenses.
• Consecutive shooting at approximately three 2.6 per second (6 frames
max.) with noise reduction off.
• Features a newly developed AF sensor, with 11-point distance
measurement. (Center uses a wide cross area AF including 9 focus
points.)
• Improved manual focusing using a viewfinder similar to a conventional
35mm SLR camera, but with 0.95× magnification. Also features a
superimpose function, in which the focus points on the viewfinder
illuminate red.
• Can use two CR-V3 lithium batteries, four AA lithium batteries, four AA
Ni-MH batteries or four AA alkaline batteries.
• Features the two-dial hyper operating system.
• Can install the battery grip (sold separately) which uses the same
batteries as the camera, extends battery life and has a vertical shutter
release button.
This camera can be used with a variety of Pentax 35mm interchangeable
lenses.
While the size of the CCD is 23.5×15.7mm, the format size of the 35mm
camera is 36×24mm. As a result, the angle of view (the size and scale of
the subject to be photographed) will differ from 35mm cameras when
lenses of the same focal length are used to take pictures from the same
distance.
The format size of a 35mm camera is approximately 1.5 times larger than
the format size of this camera. As such, focal distance when the lens for
35mm format lens is attached to this camera will be equivalent to approx.
1.5 times more than the value noted on the lens.

• To reduce camera shake, support your body or the camera on a solid
object - a table, tree, or a wall for instance.
• Although there are individual differences among photographers, in
general the shutter speed for a hand held camera is 1/focal length ×1.5.
For example, it is 1/75 of a second for a focal length of 50mm and 1/150
of second for 100mm. A tripod should be used for shutter speeds slower
than this.
• When using an telephoto lens, a tripod that is heavier than the total
weight of the camera and lens is recommended to avoid camera shake.

bright, choose a faster shutter speed. If it is
too dark, choose a slower shutter speed.
When the shutter speed indication stops
blinking, you can take the picture with proper
exposure.
If both the shutter speed and aperture value
are blinking, this indicates being out of

How to read the viewfinder bar graph
In a (Hyper manual exposure) mode, a bar graph appears in the
viewfinder. If the 9 are at the center of the bar, it indicates correct
exposure. If the 9 are on the negative end of the bar graph, it
indicates under exposure. If they are on the positive end, it
indicates over exposure. If the exposure setting exceeds the bar
graph display limit, the 7 or 8 will blink.
• The shutter speed and aperture value are displayed on the LCD panel
whenever the camera is on.
4
If the subject is too bright or too dark,
both the shutter speed and aperture
value will blink in the viewfinder and on
the LCD panel to indicate being out of
metering range. Adjusting the shutter
speed and aperture will not attain
proper exposure. Use an ND (Neutral
Density) filter or select a darker subject
if the subject is too bright. Select a
brighter subject or use a flash if it is too
dark.
Combining with AE-L
You can use the AE-L button (p.69) to memorize the exposure value in
Hyper Manual mode. In this state, the shutter speed and aperture value
combination is changed, with the exposure value said as is, when you
change either the shutter speed or the aperture value.
Ex) If you press AE-L with the shutter speed set to 1/125 seconds and the
aperture set to f/5.6, using the Tv dial to change the shutter speed to
1/30 seconds will result in the aperture value automatically changing to
f11.

pressed halfway.
• You will hear a beep when the AE lock button is pressed. The beep can be
turned off. (p.119)
• AE lock is not available when the exposure mode is set to p (Bulb) mode.
• When the exposure mode is set to e (program) mode, you can use a Hyper
program while the AE lock is engaged.
• The combination of shutter speed and aperture value changes depending on
the zooming position even while the AE lock is engaged when using a zoom
lens for which maximum aperture varies depending on the focal length.
However, the exposure value does not vary, and therefore the picture is taken
at the brightness level set by the AE lock.
• The exposure value set when you press the AE lock button is saved when the
exposure mode is set to a (Hyper manual exposure) mode. In this state, the
shutter speed and aperture value combination is changed, with the exposure
value said as is, when you change either the shutter speed or the aperture
value.

Red-eye Reduction
This camera has a red-eye reduction function, which reduces red-eye by
discharging the flash twice. When > is displayed on the LCD panel, the
pre-flash is discharged just before the shutter is released. This reduces the
pupil diameter. Then the main flash is discharged while the pupils are
smaller, reducing the red-eye effect.
• If red-eye reduction is used when the AF360FGZ or AF500FTZ, etc. is set as
a slave unit or wireless, the preflash for red-eye reduction will trigger the
external flash to fire. Do not use red-eye reduction when using a slave unit.
• The red-eye reduction feature works even when only an external flash is
used. See page 97.
89
About Red-eye Phenomenon
Shooting portraits with a flash in a dark environment often results in eyes
looking reddish in the photograph. This phenomenon, commonly known
as “Red-Eye”, is caused by the reflection of the electronic flash in the
retina of the eye. It can be reduced by taking a picture in brighter light or
by shooting with a wider-angle lens at a closer distance. When using an
external flash, it may also help to position the flash as far away from the
camera as possible.
Flash photography distance
• The flash effective range does not come closer than 0.7m (2.6ft), even if the
lens aperture is very small. The exposure will not be properly controlled when
taking a picture closer than 0.7m. Note that this can also cause and you will
see vignetting in the picture corners.
• To calculate the flash photography distance from the aperture size, see
p.139.
Flash Recommended indicator
The flash recommended indicator [b] in the viewfinder and on the LCD
panel will blink to recommend that you use the flash when you attempt to
take a picture in low light and backlight condition.
• b will blink only in backlit conditions when the capture mode is set to b
(shutter priority) mode or a (manual exposure) mode.
• b stops blinking when the flash is fully charged.
• b will not appear in Bulb mode.

Using the built-in flash with an external flash
Fig. 1 When combining with the built-in flash
Discharging multiple flashes
To use two or more external flashes simultaneously, either use the same
type of flashes as shown in the flash function chart on p.93, or use the
following combinations: AF360FGZ / AF500FTZ / AF330FTZ and
AF400FTZ / AF240FT. The built-in flash can be used with any type. Connect
them as shown in Fig. 2 on the next page: Attach an off-camera shoe
adapter F to the external flash and the hot shoe adapter F and connect the
extension cord F5P to the off-camera shoe adapter F on the other external
flash.
4
Shooting Functions
As shown in figure 1 below, attach the optional hot shoe adapter FG to the
camera hot shoe and an off-camera shoe adapter to the bottom of the
external flash, and connect these with the extension cord F5P.
The off camera shoe adapter F comes with a tripod screw for securing to
your tripod.

The AF500FTZ can be connected directly to the Extension cord F5P without
the off-camera shoe adapter F.
Shooting Functions
Contrast-Control-Sync Flash
Using the dedicated external flash in combination with the built-in flash
allows twin flash photography (contrast-control-synch flash photography).
This is based on the difference between the amounts of light discharged
from two units. Contrast control synch flash is possible with the
combination of following flash units:
AF360FGZ, AF330FTZ, AF500FTZ and the built-in flash
1 Refer to page 97 for connecting the external flash off-camera.
2 Set the synch mode for AF360FGZ, AF330FTZ / AF500FTZ to the
Contrast-Control-Synch mode.
3 Confirm that both the external flash and built-in flash are fully charged
and then take the picture.
• For contrast control synch flash photography when using two external
flashes, the flash set as the contrast control flash is flash 2, and the other
external flash is flash 1. When using an external flash with the built-in flash,
the built-in flash is flash 1, and the external flash is flash 2.
• Do not combine an accessory with a different number of contacts such as a
“Hot Shoe Grip”, as a malfunction may occur.
• The fastest flash synchronization speed is 1/60 second in the ContrastControl-Synch mode.
• Combining with flashes from other manufacturers may cause equipment
breakdown. We recommend using the PENTAX dedicated automatic flashes.

More Details about Capture Functions
Effect of Aperture and Shutter Speed
Correct exposure of the subject is established by a combination of shutter
speed and aperture setting. There are many correct combinations of
shutter speed and aperture for a particular subject. Different shutter speed
and aperture settings produce different effects.
Effect of shutter speed
The shutter speed determines the length of time that the light is allowed to
strike the CCD, to adjust the amount of light striking the CCD.
• Using slower shutter speed
If the subject is moving, the image will be
blurred because the shutter is open longer.
It is possible to enhance the effect of motion
(rivers, waterfalls, waves, etc.) by intentionally
using a slower shutter speed.
8
Appendix
• Using faster shutter speed
Choosing a faster shutter speed will allow
freezing the action of a moving subject.
Even if the subject is not moving, a faster
shutter speed also helps prevent camera
shake.
137
Effect of aperture
The aperture increases or reduces the light beam (thickness) which
passes through the lens, controlling how much light strikes the CCD.
• Widening the beam by opening the
aperture
Objects closer and farther than the focused
subject will be more out of focus. For instance,
if you take a picture of a person against a
landscape with the aperture open, the
landscape in front of and behind the person
will be blurred, emphasizing only the person.
• Narrowing the beam by closing the
aperture
The range in focus expands forward and
back. For instance, if you take a picture of
a person against a landscape with the
aperture narrowed, the landscape in front
of and behind the person will be in focus.
8
Appendix
• When you focus on a portion of the subject, there is a range in which object
closer and farther will also be in focus. This focused range is called the depth
of field.
• As the aperture is stopped down, the depth of field (focused range) increases
(wider range of focus).
• Also, the wide-angle lens, and the farther away the subject, the wider the
depth of field.
• Zoom lenses do not have a scale for depth of field because of their structure.
• The depth of field for the w differs depending on the lens but, compared
to when using a 35mm camera, the value is roughly one aperture setting
lower (the focused range becomes narrower).
Further, check the depth of field at one stop open side for lenses with a depth
of field scale.
138
How to check depth of field
When you focus on a portion of the subject, there is a range in which object
closer and farther will also be in focus. This focused range is called the
depth of field. If you use Preview, you can check the depth of field in the
viewfinder before taking a picture.
1
2
Focus on the subject.
Turn the main switch to | while
looking through the viewfinder.
You can check the depth of field in the
viewfinder while holding down the main
switch.
8
Appendix
• No shooting information is displayed in the viewfinder, and the shutter cannot
be released while the main switch is in the | position.
• You can check the depth of field in all exposure modes.
• The focus range in the viewfinder may differ slightly from the actual picture.
139
Calculating flash distance from the aperture used
(using built-in flash)
Maximum flash distance= Guide Number ÷ Selected aperture
Minimum flash distance= Maximum flash distance ÷ 5* (Note)
The flash cannot be used when the distance is less than 0.7m. When the
flash is used within 0.7m, it causes vignetting in the picture corners, light
is distributed unevenly and the picture may be over-exposed.
* The value 5 used in the formula above is a fixed value which applies to
using the built-in flash alone.
The guide number depends upon the sensitivity (ISO) used as shown
below.
ISO200→15.6
ISO400→22
ISO800→31
ISO1600→44
ISO3200→62
This example uses ISO200 with an aperture of f/4.
Guide number (15.6) ÷ f/4 = 3.9m
3.9 ÷ 5 0.8m
Therefore, the flash can be used in a range of about 0.8m to 3.9m.
Calculating aperture used from the flash distance
(using the built-in flash)
If the resulting number (3) is not available as a lens aperture, the smaller
number (2.8) is generally used.

Appendix
Use a brush-less blower to remove dirt
and dust from the CCD. If a blower with
a brush is used, the brush may scratch
the CCD. Never wipe the CCD with a
cloth.
150
• Do not use a spray type blower.
• Do not clean the CCD when the exposure mode is set to p (Bulb) mode.
• Always cap the lens mount area to prevent dirt and dust from accumulating
on the CCD when no lens is on the camera.
• It is recommended that you use the AC adaptor when cleaning the CCD.
• When the battery level is low, “Not enough battery remaining to clean sensor”
is displayed on the LCD monitor.
• If you are not using the AC adapter, please use batteries with ample capacity
remaining. A warning beep will sound if the battery capacity becomes low
during cleaning. Please interrupt your cleaning operation immediately.
• Do not put the tip of the blower inside the lens mount area. If the power is
turned off, this could cause damage to the shutter or the CCD sensor.

Precautions Regarding Memory Cards
Precautions When Using a Microdrive™
• The Microdrive™ is a small, light-weight hard disk drives. Because it is
rotating recording media, it does not handle vibration or impact well.
When using a Microdrive™, be very careful not to subject the camera to
vibration or impact.
• A Microdrive™ may get hot when used for long periods. Please handle
carefully.
• Do not place a Microdrive™ near a strong magnetic field.
• Time required for recording to the Microdrive™ will differ depending on
picture conditions and Microdrive™ performance.

recorded on the card or transferred to PC using USB cable as this may
cause the data to be lost or the card to be damaged.
• Do not bend the CF card or subject it to violent impact. Keep it away from
water and store away from high temperature.
• Be sure to format unused CF card or CF card that have been used on
another camera. Refer to “Formatting a CF card” p.114 for instructions
on formatting.
• Never remove the CF card during formatting as this may cause the card
to be damaged and become unusable.
• Time required for recording to the CF card will differ depending on
picture conditions and card performance.

Glossary
CCD (Charge Coupled Device)
Photography element which converts the light entering through the lens
into electric signals.
DCF (design rule for camera file system)
An image file standard established by the Japan Electronics and
Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA).
DPOF (digital print order format)
Rules for writing information onto a card with recorded images, regarding
the specific images and number of copies to be printed. Prints can easily
be made by taking this to a DPOF photo printing store.
JPEG
An image compression method. The image is recorded in JPEG format
when the quality level is set to C (Best), D (Better), or E (Good).
Images recorded in JPEG format are suited for viewing on your PC or for
attaching to an e-mail.
8
Appendix
NTSC / PAL
These are video output formats. NTSC is mainly used in Japan, North
America, and South Korea. PAL is mainly used in European nations and
in China.
RAW data
Image data recording raw output from the CCD. Transfer RAW data to
your computer and use the provided software to create image data with
different settings, such as JPEG or TIFF.
sRGB (standard RGB)
International standard of color space established by the IEC (International
Electrotechnical Commission). By using sRGB compliant color
adjustments on peripheral devices for PCs, such as digital cameras,
printers, and monitors, differences in color during input and output are
reduced.
161
TIFF
A format for saving image data in a non-compressed format. Image data
using this format has a large file size and is not suited for attaching to email, but is suited for processing on your PC.
Color Temperature
This numerically expresses the color of the light source illuminating the
subject. This is indicated in absolute temperature, using Kelvin (K) units.
The color of light shifts to a bluish color as the color temperature rises, and
to a reddish color as the color temperature falls.
Color space
A system that organizes colors. Colors displayed on displays for PCs and
televisions are rendered with combinations of RGB (red, green, blue), and
those for color printed materials, such as pamphlets, are rendered with
combinations of CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Color space is the
method in which specific colors are rendered through a certain method.
Quality Level
This refers to the image compression ratio. The lower the compression,
the more detailed the image. The image becomes rougher as the
compression rate rises.
Histogram
Graphed presentation of a gradation sequence that shows the darkest
point in an image to the brightest. The horizontal axis represents the
brightness and the vertical axis represents the number of pixels. This is
useful when you wish to refer to the exposure status of an image.
8
Appendix
Recorded Pixels
Indicates the size of the image by the number of pixels. The more pixels
that compose a picture, the larger the image size.
162
