Pentax X70

I purchased a Pentax X70 awhile ago to have something that was light and handy to capture those spontaneous moments without having to change lenses, etc. it's a good little camera and I've taken some really nice photos with it. I have just used it as a point and shoot, but note that you can change shutter speeds and depth of field. Despite reading the manual, I can't see to figure out how to make these adjustments. Anyone here know how to do so? Thanks

On the mode dial, isn't there a setting for Tv and Av? Tv let's you adjust the shutter speed, and Av the aperture. There should be a scrollwheel on the camera and will adjust the corresponding settings when turned.

I thought about buying an X70 once but found out they don't have the diopter adjustment.
Wanted to get an X90 but I don't find a lot of those being sold "used".
Enjoy your camera.. =)

Pentax X70

Thanks! I basically use the camera as a point and shoot and I'm pretty pleased with the phtos it takes. Just saving up for a DSLR. I still use my Pentax K1000 film camera and it's never let me down as far as quality and depth of image.

To Adam - thanks! I use the camera as a point and shoot so hadn't familiarized myself with the depth of field and shutter speed adjustments. Found the scrollwheel and now I'm good to go

I still use and only have a K100D Super and I have no complaints or need to upgrade yet.
People who see the images I take can't believe that my DSLR is only 6mp.
