K3 magnify in live view


Is there an option to set magnify in live-view on halfpress shutter button for 1-2 seconds.
It's an option on the K-01 I really like. Better then using the OK button.

it is a personal choice, I much prefer OK button on K-3ii, K-s1 and K-1.
I do not think you can change it , on K-5 /K-01 it was the old way, after that it is just OK button.
you need to get use to it, good luck
kind regards

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

OK button is the only method I am aware of. I believe your K-01 operates the same way in MF mode.

Not 100% on topic, but my use of the LV/LCD screen has increased since I bought a Hoodman loupe. It is much easier to access a shot with the hood in all lighting conditions. It's a very handy piece of kit ...
