You can use the SR mechanism to compose your Shot in liveview. When i got it Right you Are able to use the angle of the Screen to compensate keystone distortion!?!? If this is right, we found another thing that makes our K-1 unique

Biggest surprise to me, as a proud K-3 owner - is that it's in good English!

I dunno...looks like it works the same as on K-3 and other supporting Pentax dSLRs (i.e. no keystone adjustment).

What is "Level" then?!?
It seems that you use the up, down and left, right buttons for sensor shifting left right and up and down
What do they mean with adjust the level? Turning left and right? makes that sense? I would think the tilting would be a cooler option


Adjusts the level of the composition (up to 8 steps. Not available when the amount of adjustment steps is 17 or more). (With the Wheel)

CTE accentuates the white balance shift rather than correcting for it, if you want your pictures to look warmer or cooler. That's my understanding--never used it.

What it does is moving the sensor up/down right/left and turn. This gives you the same movements as a shift lens. By tilting your camera down and moving the sensor up you have the possibility to compensate for the keystone effect. Not as much as a shift lens but to some degree.
