Pentax K-500 In-Depth Review

The entry-level Pentax K-500 doesn't differ much from the K-50, making it a great value. Here's our in-depth review of the K-500:

image issue with k-500

Can someone send me some unprocessed RAWs from K-500. On my camera, images tend to have some extremly strong purple cast and unless i process them trough lightroom or such, they are completly unusable. Hapeens to JPEGs as well.

Can you post some samples? That's definitely not normal. And I'd recommend starting
a separate thread for it

Pentax K-500 Review - Recommended Settings - PF Reviews

Record Menu Settings -

Please update to reflect the lack of the Electronic Level Display on the K-500.

Instead, users can change the grid display to the cross-hair pattern via Record Menu page 4 > Live View > Grid Display > Display #3. In this view, you can utilize the horizontal and vertical grid lines to align your shot with the horizon/subject.
