New and fast start

Hi, I just ordered the K5 hopefully it will arrive Monday. I am scheduled to do a One act play shoot Monday evening. I used my k20D last time at ISO 1600, f4 @ 180. Thoughts on what I can use on the K5? Also, I don't do real great at reading manuals, I'm more of a visual or hands on learner. Does anyone know of any good utube videos? Thanks, and have a great weekend

I've no idea what you're precisely asking.

The K5 works almost in the same way as the K20D, you will learn the camera in two days or so.

Don't hesitate to use it up to ISO 6400!

Given the same settings, you'll probably see a faster shutter speed with the K5. If you're proficient at manipulating settings on the K20, you'll be fine. I think the controls are slightly different, but not significantly so.
