ist DL

Have bought this camera as a second for backup but not sure if I can use the LCD monitor as opposed to using the regular viewfinder. Seems like I should be able to but if so I can't find the setting.


Much appreciated

Nope, no live view on the DL, If I'm not mistaken the first implemented live view was the K20 and all Cameras since (Kx, Kr,K7,K5,Q except the 645d)

Welcome to the forums, huntlg. The DL does not have live view - that feature didn't appear on Pentax bodies until about 2008, with the K20D.
