How to make it easier to access the K-7 SD slot!
Posted By: Daan, 05-23-2010, 12:52 PM

I guess most of you K7-owners struggle with getting the SD-card from the SD-slot. Well I donít know if anyone come up with this solution yet, but here is it anyway; I put some thin tape (for electric wires) put the top side of the SD-card. It still fits within the weather-sealed compartment and is makes it much easier to get the card out of the slot. Hope this helps.

Greetings, Daan

I do a similar thing on the SD card for my Zoom H4 audio recorder: a short tab made from sticky tape.

Very clever- it'll also help protect your card's casting from wear-and-tear.

Finger-flick it. Press down on the card with your fingernail, and quickly flick your fingernail down off the card. It will pop up pretty high, and you can then grasp it easily and pull it out. Works for me on my K200D and K-5.

Finger-flicking works fine for me ... thought about using a tape-tab extension, but was afraid that it would only make things worse. I seem to have some SD cards which are thicker than others, therefore more difficult to remove at times.
