Live view focus

Is there a way to zoom in close to an object to capture focus using LiveView on a Pentax K1 11?

Press the "OK" button (button in the middle of the 4-way controller) to zoom in during liveview. You can then use the rear wheel to adjust the amount of zoom, and the 4-way controller to move the view.

You should be able to press the OK button in the middle of the DPad in live view and it will zoom in. Then you can use the wheel to zoom in out further.

And you can use Face detection autofocus in case you shoot people. The face and two eyes should be visible to get yellow rectangle on it. Camera focuses right on the face/eyes. Actually it is eye autofocus.
