SD Card Abit Hard to Pullout on K7

Hi,
anyone has the same minor issue like I do?

After push to eject SD card seems to be a bit stuck inside,
have to use little strength to pull it out.

Yes same mechanism as the K200D, very annoying.

Yes at the beginning I had exactly the same feeling - first it was really hard to get it out - now it works a bit more smooth and still not the same as with the K10d. After a while you find a technique to get it out faster..

The distance between the card and the slot-cover is simply too short.

Yes, same here. In fact, I really had to struggle first few times. After a while it seemed easier. It seems as though it is hanging on something (to close a tolerance) inside the camera slot right where the read-write lock switch is positioned on the card???

Try this one:
- push the card with your index finger
- then remove your finger fast, the card then should pop out by about half

I think Birdman is onto something. Personally I haven't had any problems. I think it's safe to assume that somebody will soon provide an SD with so much storage you'll never have to swap it again. Until then, good luck

I have a pair of rubber pliers used for watch makers to pull the cards out of the K7, it's that annoying yes.

HAHA

My only discussions with them so far is via the help line and email about the line, I will mention that we want the k20D door setup back if I get a chance in further discussions in the next model, IF they ask me ( doubt ).

The k10/20 door is nice but I won't bet that it will come back in any K-7 form factor. The news mechanism simply saves space and money.

Maybe try what I did on the *istD. Add a small poece of tape to the end of the card to give you a tab to pull the card out with. On the *istD there was no room to get the card out and it hardly popped out at all. The tape tab was the only way without pliers.

I also noticed this on my K-7. the memory card door was pretty tight when it came out of the box. though it is now a bit loose and much easier to access. also I found a way how to remove the card easily. as somebody had already mentioned, push the card as quickly as you can. that would eject the card further out. hope that helps.

OP: any chance you're using SDHC cards? With my K10D, when I started with SD cards which were no problems, but once I started to use SDHC cards, I noticed that the SDHC cards didn't stick out as much when I pushed to eject. After using them for a while though, things have eased up and I've got no problems at all.
