rear view screen

Okay, dumb question.....

If I am doing a night photo, is there a way to turn off /turn on the rear view screen on a KR?

Hit the Info button until it disappears. [Rec. Mode 4] has a setting to choose how that setting is remembered when the camera is turned off, so you can set the camera up to always have it off for a lot of night stuff. Page 27 and 288 in the K-r manual. The same technique works on my K-7, so it probably works for the K-x and everything newer.

Yes, push the INFO button twice.

Beat me to it Dave, had to go to the car to grab the camera.

I am so fast!

I thought it was a "modern user interface" trick only. It looks like the Info button does the trick on all Pentax DSLRs. The tiny screens on the D and DS are too small to be a problem.

I prefer the top LCD to show me my information. But with the K-r I'm stuck with the back screen. I really should get my 110D fixed.
