Thanks Nunavut, have just done it. There is certainly a lot to learn to competently use the K1.

Thanks everyone for your help. You have all sorted my dumb problem. I had the exposure compensation set to -3, not sure why. I just did an indoor shot and it is now exposing normally and exif is saying 0 compensation. Give me back my old film mechanical Pentax KM, :lol::lol:

No, I don't press the exposure compensation button in manual at all. Ah, I have just checked this new dial and I had the exposure compensation set on. I have put it onto 0. So hopefully should be ok, will check tomorrow during daylight hours. Damn new fangled cameras :lol:

I only shoot in manual, there is no exposure compensation set. Unless there is some setting that I am unaware of.

Yes, only by the camera's metering. I overexpose by 3 stops.

Yes, only manual. I shoot 3 stops over exposed but the exif says -3 EV. When I shoot at the correct exposure according to the exposure guide, the shots are at least 3 stops underexposed.

I have had my K1-11 since early January. Have taken it out for 3 photoshoots and each time it has required at least a 3 stop over exposure for proper exposure. The exif data on all of the images in camera and on the downloaded images say +- -3. Exposure bias -3 EV. Do I need the camera looked at or is there a setting that is wrong in the camera? I cannot find anything in the menu. Thanks.

Well I finally got a L bracket for my K1 with Manfrotto tripod. I got the Manfrotto MS050M4-Q2 L Bracket. This fits my tripod quick release mechanism. The only problem is that this L bracket is made for a camera with a motordrive. So I cannot centre the lens to be equal in both landscape and portrait orientation. Otherwise it fits well to the K1. I don't think this will be a big problem.

Thanks I.O. The Kirk looks like it won't fit on my tripod head (Manfrotto 804 RC2, which has a quick release "clip".

Yes, your right Paul. I just processed one of my RAW monochromes and came up colour in Photoshop. I thought the mono images would be JPEGs.

Has anyone bought a L bracket for the K1, for placement on a tripod?
I am going up to the Snowy Mountains NSW, Australia at the end of the month for some landscape photography.
I would like a L bracket before I go.

Now that I have set the custom settings no. 20 to 2 I cannot then access my custom settings at all, even after pressing ok. I must be doing something wrong.

Took the new camera, K1 11 out this morning for it's first outing. Had the 15-30mm on, doing city/architecture shots. All went well untill I had shot around 40 images. Shooting on manual, 800 iso, early in the morning. It then only started shooting in monochrome. Every mode except for Auto shot in mono. Funny enough the USER settings shot in colour. Three that I had programmed in plus the others that are factory set. I had a similar problem with my K5 years ago. It shot in mono for only about half hour then righted itself, only happened once. :(
