if you see it in the viewfinder, it's not on the sensor. if you see it in your pictures, it is.

As far as know, none of the Pentax dSLRs has that functionality.
645D can do that. It has even a dial especially for it.
K-7 can do that too. Without the direct control though. It's in the timer menu - the M.UP setting. I expect the K-5 can do it as well.

See what you miss for not reading the manual!

Oh.. I see..so Pentax Kx doesn't have mirror lock up.....maybe i have to use slow speed to clean inner sensor from dust yah..(
I guess I couldn't make myself clear, functionally it does have a MLU, 2 sec delay will do in most cases. You'll understand better when you check this graph.

It's not affect but I feel not comfort when I look at the viewfinder and there is (look like) black point inside...I'm sure there is from my camera because i tried few lens and having the same dust position....

Sometimes I think it from the viewfinder but it's not proven before I clean my sensor....I hope it's fine...
If you can see it in the viewfinder, it isn't on the sensor. But if you want to clean the sensor, you can activate cleaning in menu, it will lock up the mirror and you can clean the sensor with a rocket blower.

You're clear, I just don't understand with menu tools on K-x honeslty...I'm just afraid to try that might be having bad effect to my camera....

Live View Mirror Move Up

Is there any value in using live view for reducing potential camera vibration due to mirror movement during the use of autobracketing. In a K-X you can't use 2 sec timer (mirror move up) and autobracketing together. I don't fully understand this up and down movement of the mirror that is mentioned here in live view.

Thanks,
Mike

I was playing around with this today. The mirror lock-up works using the Self-Timer and the IR remote. Set the self-timer with the 2 sec. option or if using the remote use the 3 sec. option (I have the remote and it works great). See pages 131-135 of the K-x Operating Manual. My also want to also set "AF with Remote Control" to ON so the camera will auto focus when the IR remote is used. Do this in Custom 2 - #11 - default is 1 (off) (see page 135 of manual).
