K7 questions

Couple quick questions. When reviewing images on the lcd or on the computer or tv, there is a black bar at the bottom if tje image, normal? Solution if not? Also, when does the copyright information appear on tje image? Thank you for the help.

The LCD has an aspect ratio of 4:3 but the image is 3:2. Therefore there is some unused space at the bottom. I suppose all APS sized DSLRs behave this way.
The copyright information can be configured in the setup menu. (Menu 3, item 1)

To be specific, copyright information doesn't appear on the image, it is embedded in the meta data of the image. A program such as PhotoMe can read the meta data.

I think you are referring to the bottom 1/4 inch of the rear LCD, which , depending on the info setting when you look at the images in full format, would be used to show the exif data,

this line disappears when you zoom in

Can you clarify or post an example? You say you get a black bar on all output devices including computer? Do you mean when you've moved the image over, or using a cable (rgb/hdmi) to display it directly onto another screen?
