It looks like the LV/Delete button is modal. In shooting mode, it engages LV. In Playback/Instant review mode, it functions as Delete.

That's my logical guess. We'll see when we get the manual online.
I would have thought that was obvious. The playback button is blue, as is the delete icon next to the LV button and the zoom in/out icons on the rear wheel.

The K-x shares the delete button with the flash pop up in the same spot, so it is not unheard of.

My white K-x has a white lens... they must have run out of them. I if lived in Singapore I'd let you borrow one for the next picture of it.

As does the K-01.

On a K-01 the Delete button is disabled in shooting mode. It only operates in Playback/Preview mode. There is a confirmation routine with the default set to Cancel (the Deletion), so you have to use the 4-Way Controller to move the cursor, then press OK to actually delete.

It appears in the K30 the LV/Delete button will call a similar failsafe routine when in Playback/Preview Mode.

I see. It's very simple. No problem at all.

Hi Frank. As you actually have the camera, would you be able to confirm that there is no provision for an Optional Battery Holder underneath. The original specs sheet posted on here stated that there would be one but all other reports say no.
If none I will have to pass as even the K5 on its own is difficult for me to hold without a grip with my big hands.
Regards
Tony

Sweet! ogl is still here!

I just recently came back to posting in the forum because of the K-30 announcement.

I am really bouncing back and forth between liking the white and blue. Both very cool!

Why do you need an extra grip when the the camera grip is pretty good to begin with. This is an entry level camera targeted at a defined price point. Making provision for a grip adds to complexity and cost as the drive and electrical connections have to be added to the bottom of the camera. An external grip adds bulk and weight and while it does offer more battery options and easier vertical shooting, it does nothing to increase fps. Just learn how to hold a camera properly when shooting vertically.
