k30 stuck on a setting

my k30 sometimes sticks on a setting after taking a shot in manual. for instance, after I take a shot sometimes, I cant change aperture, shutter or exposure, unless I switch to av, p or anything and then go back to manual, then I can change settings once again. I hope this makes sense. any thoughts?
thanks,
charlie

Disable instant review, or exit out of it/wait for it to end

BTW, the reason this happens is that the rear e-dial is used to zoom in instant review. Bad design IMO, but fair enough!

Yeah, this little bugger has tripped me up a few times.

As a result of this thread, I poked around my menus in the K-5 and discovered that there is an option in the Instant Review menu, called "Enlarge Instant Review". When disabled, this uncouples the zoom feature of the e-dial just during Instant Review, while retaining the use of the rear dial for zooming during normal playback. Now, as soon as I touch the rear dial, it does what I normally want it to do! And now I can set the duration of my instant review duration to a longer interval, like 5 seconds, instead of 1 second.

Not sure about your K-30 though. Hope this helps.

And just to provide an opposing opinion, I found turning off Instant Review worked best for me. If I want to review the last shot, my thumb is already only 1 cm away from the playback button. Then I know it's not going to disappear on me while I'm still looking at it
