Pentax K-30 Live View

Is there a software that will allow me to look at a picture on my computer screen before the picture is taken instead of using the screen on my Pentax K-30?

Unfortunately not. The next generation of Pentax's entry-level cameras should support the flucard for wireless tethering, however.

May be possible if you only want to view it using the video out connector, but to a monitor or lcd TV input. Unless your PC has a video input on the card.

(If you take pictures of Zombies in Live View will the battery go Dead ?? )

No one has mentioned PK-Tether which is probably as close as you will get.
