Reviewing pics on a K-x

I just got a K-x and when I take a picture I have to look very quickly on the LCD to see the picture before it goes away..about a second.

How do I set it where the pic stays on the LCD a little longer?

click menu, then goto 3, click instant review - you can then select a maximum of 5 sec there. Default is 1 sec.

You can also presumably hit the playback button to see it for as long s you like. I personally have instant review turned off, as I don't need to look at everything, and I find it distracting, especially in low light situations, to have stuff show up on my LCD.

I also do what Marc does so that it also doesn't slow up the speed if trying to maximize frames/sec of the continuous shooting.
