Weird hapenings with my Kr

I have had my Kr since late Dec 2010
In the last week or so when I take a photo the shuter speed is very slow
at ALL settings even at the sports setting where to take 6 shots it could take 20 seconds or more
any ideas

Can you be more specific? There might be two different issues:

* Do you mean that the shutter speed is always very slow (1" or slower) ?
If so, set the camera to the Green mode. (Dial mode = Green.) If you have still a very slow shutter speed even in Green mode, there is a pb with the camera. Send it to Pentax for warrenty repair.


* Is your camera slow to write your shot on the card? That is, you need to to wait 2-6 s before you can take another shot.
If this is the case, there are 2 likely causes:
(a) Your SD card is faulty. You may try another card first. Then try to reformat your card. If the pb persists, then change the card.

(b) You set (possibly by default) a lot of in-camera PP: eg, lens distortion correction, high-ISO correction ... The in-camera Post-Processing (PP) may take several seconds. I suggest to switch off all in-camera PP. Most Pentaxians would recommend you 'kill off' any in-camera PP, and to PP your shots on the computer.


I hope that the comments will assist you to resolve your problem.
