Pentax K-x - Help

Hi everyone,

Hope some kind person can help me out, I have got a Pentax k-x, but the issue is that my camera is set to automatic exposure, when I turn the top dial onto landscape, it stays on automatic exposure, how do I get it back to the correct settings, I have looked thru the manual but cannot find anything.

Hope someone can kindly help me, thanks in advance.

Cheers, Renee

Been awhile since I had a k-x but I think you have to set it to M or to Tv or Av or Sv or P, one of the semi-auto modes. If you are in 'Auto Pict' or 'SCN' or any of the capture modes you have limited access to the options. You need to be in the Exposure modes. See page 87 of the manual.

All the scene modes use auto exposure, but you can always make adjustments with exposure compensation (the +/- button).
