Just upgraded to K-5 and have a few puzzling questions.

Hi all,

I've just got all new Pentax K-5 body that replaced old K10D. There are two questions I have in relation to the new gear that I hope you can help me to resolve.

1. How can I delete all images on the card? On K10D it was possible by using trash button twice.

2. Things from Func. menu of K10D has been moved to four corner buttons which is great. It's easy to modify WB without entering the Func. menu. But the issues is when I'm in the SEL mode of AF. Then the buttons are used to move AF point. Is there any way I can program any of other buttons to be able to access WB settings without switching AF mode to AUTO. It takes time, because the little knob for AF modes is rather tiny.

Many thanks for your kind help.

1 - it is now moved to the menu. I'm glad for this change, as I once deleted images accidentaly with K10D.
2 - hold the OK button for a short moment and the selection is switched. the change is indicated in the viewfinder too.

While playing back images, press menu, it takes you straight to the playback menu where you can select "delete all'.

One can also (when viewing the pictures) back up and delete the whole folder.
