K-30 Users Guide


7 Jun 2013 5:02AM
I've just bought a Pentax K30 and although the Operating Manual looks ok it's big and it's technical. I think a User Guide would be helpful, but the only one I can find is the 'Magic Lantern Guide' for the K-7. Can anybody tell me if it would be worth buying that, or has anyone any other titles they can suggest? Thanks

Hi Chris,

I don't recall hearing of any other user guide for the K30 but can I suggest you head over to www.pentaxforums.co.uk (website is run by the same crew that run EPZ) where you will find a most helpful bunch that will answer any questions you have.

The K7 User Guide will be of little or no use.

Manuals are what they are being tedious to work through written by those that know all the technical bits while assuming we all understand it.

Controls and menus are roughly the same with any DSLR aside from various buttons giving options.

The ideal way to learn is to use it and get to grips with what you want the camera to do. Even the User Guides can be just as complicated

This review may be of help although you may well have done a search yourself.

The Pentax Forum would be a good place to go

The website doesn't seem to be working anymore as got this message:

pentaxforums.co.uk is not available. Check now if your name is free.

Has it now shut down?

The Pentax Users web page is www.pentaxuser.co.uk and I have just been there so this I know works OK. You should get an answer to your query there. John
