I think there might be a small animal trapped inside.


Instructions on how to remove said small animal.

I don't think it is In the manual. If it is, it's in some obscure small print place. I wonder how many people would notice if it were. Truthfully, until I read of a 'Clunk' on the SR equipped cameras online, I never even noticed it. The easy thing to do is to let your mind run wild thinking you got a lemon when first hearing that noise. You want to hear a Clunk? Pick up a K20d. Now That is a Clunk

It's funny. The first time I felt it, I had something like "hey, that must be the SR mechanism" and I did not further bother about it.

you have to understand that i have had 2 top line canon film cameras fail on me and this is my first pentax as well as my first dslr so i am more than a little gun shy about things that go bump in the night.

I don't blame you....the K-7 might be a very good value, but it's still a large purchase for most of us. Welcome aboard btw...hope to see a few pics posted from your K-7.

Sorry i dont have any shots posted here yet but. If you google american intertribal and go to indian cave all rock formations are my shots on the history page. this cave is about 1.25 miles long and is open to the public all shots are taken in total darkness and just painted with a flashlite i am going to use a flash hand held and fired in multable spots to see if it works any better. I will try to get some pictures here soon but my computer skills are all most as bad as my DSLR skills, I sometimes really miss film but am sure i will get over it.

just put a few shots up, remember these are just my first try at this i hope to get way better. Painting with a flash lite is hard to get exposure even. hope that with flash things will even out

I think you did a pretty nice job on the one that has the purple-ish tint. Not too bad on both of them but that one appeals to me more.
