Live view magnify on K-1

Page 42 of the manual explains how to magnify with live view with a K-1
Doesn't work.
I am sure I am missing something.

I press shutter half way
When keeping my finger half way I press OK and nothing happens

Please help
Thanks

That's about reviewing images you've already taken, Gerard.


Try p40.

No half-press and you're fine. Just press OK and use the rear e-dial to control the degree of magnification.

the other thing you can do, if it happens to suit you better, is, if the function dial is set on the white dot, just use the 'setting' dial on the top plate to zoom in and out

Very good tips, never thought about that. This will help me a lot since I lock the back control of the camera.

I noticed that a pet-peeve of mine was corrected: no longer do you have to initially zoom in to pixel-peep.

If only the view wouldn't "de-zoom" on the the shutter half press it would be perfect for me
