Reset

I have been a Pentax user for some time but never used reset on a newer DSLR. The thing that I noticed is that when receiving a new camera, an image is viewable in both the viewfinder and LCD screen. After using reset I noticed that this is no longer the case, that the LCD screen only shows the image if LiveView is pressed. Is this normal?

Instant review may be set to zero by default. Which body?

I first noticed this on a K 50 that I was preparing for sale. I then tried it on a K 70 that I had upgraded too and noticed the same thing.

I don't have either and I'm away from home but check for the instant review setting. I tend to turn mine off.

I apologize. I just noticed that you stated that review could be turned off. I actually knew that, and my question has nothing to do with review, but rather on a prospective image. Thank you for your reply.

You can't ever see the image on screen and optically at the same time. The mirror blocks the sensor prior to taking the image and blocks the optical finder during the exposure. I'm not sure what you are talking about. Mirrorless camera may do this but even there most are one or the other not both at the same time.

You could see a previously exposed shot and look at a similar scene at the same time.

Thank you for your response.
You are welcome but you have my interest. What was the confusion on my part or what is the confusion on your part? I'm really confused and would be happy to help if the problem were clearer.
