K5 - Image won't rotate on LCD

I couldn't get the image to rotate in veiwing mode when camera is tilted 90 degree, shooting mode works fine. And yes, camera is preset correctly. Anyone has the same issue?

I may be wrong but I believe that that feature doesn't exist. It is strange for sure. I think that others have been complaining about it as well. I think that it was present with the K-7, but I don't know for sure. I suppose that it might be addressed in a firmware upgrade, but that hasn't happened as of yet.

And no matter how many times you try, it won't work. I haven't used the K-7 for almost a year now and I'm still in the habit of doing it even though I've been shooting with the K-5 ever since. It's a hard habit to break. What would have been better is if I didn't have to break the habit and Pentax would have just left that feature in there... but for whatever reason, they removed it, much to the dismay of myself and quite a few others.

Yep, K-7 does that. I'm waiting for K-3 and hope it would have that feature.

Hi
There is a Thread here on this forum dealing with this matter, read it from beginning to end and then make up your own mind whether you need it or not.

Thank you all for the FYI, but still somewhat in disbelieve. What we had on a K7 now just a memory.
