K3 video tutorials?

I picked up a K3 for my wife for Christmas. We both can't believe how poorly the owners manual covers use of the button functions and features available. This is her first DSLR and I've only owned film SLR's in the past There's a lot to digest...kinda like jumping into a brand new Lexus after owning a 1990 Camry We'd both love a detailed video tutorial on the K3's operation if there is one out there in cyber world. If none exists, Do they make a 'Pentax K3 for dummies' book?

Hello, and Welcome to the Forum!

I would highly recommend getting the E-Book for the K3, much more detailed, and you can download it immediately after payment. Well worth it!

I appreciate the help. It does have a mild learning curve. Thanks again!

I would echo csa's recommendation on the ebooks4cameras guides. They are excellent - I bought one about a year ago, and even though I'd been using my K3 for some time, it taught me so much more about the camera. I now keep it on my laptop and tablet so I can refer to it whenever necessary. It makes for very easy reading, too - not like your average manual.
