How does that give you control of shutter speed?
Oh, sorry, I should have included "shoot in Tv mode, selecting shutter speed." Combined with a lens-based aperture setting that would give you the equivalent of Tv mode--right?

Will the camera allow you to do that with a lens not set to "A?"

Unfortunately it didn't work. I set the FA 35mm's aperture ring to F4, set the camera to aperture ring "permitted" and turned the mode dial to Tv. The screen said I was still in Av mode, and I could not control shutter speed.

Hi

No it does not.
As it did not with the K100D Super before it (still using this one too, of course!!!) and all the other ones before that one.

Best,

Dan & dd, thanks for the clarification. There's no point in my buying a K-x then--just as well since money's tight.

Using a K-x coming from a K100D I didn't even know about TAv -
it does look like a very useful setting.

However this shows I couldn't have missed it, since I didn't even know about it.

Apparently TAv and Sv are unique Pentax modes since the K10D(?)
no other camera maker has either of those.

Sv was available starting with the K200D, then K-m/2000, as well as now the K-x -
so it seems to now be a "standard" for Pentax dSLRs.

TAv however seems to be available only on the more upmarket models of K10D, K20D and now K-7.

Definitely looks useful, and would be nice to have -
but I obviously can and do live without it -
without much disadvantage for my shooting
please see Kx in Use

i was shooting with kx last night. use tv with my fa 85. the default camera setting is auto iso and 1/50s. the aperture will always at f1.4 as camera tried to use the lowest iso possible.
i then force higher iso than what the camera would choose to get the aperture values that i wanted.
