Sensor Issue?

I've navigated the forums here for a while (a year or so), but never really posted any questions. Now I'm in need of some input, and I hope you all can help me.

I have owned my Pentax k-r for almost a year now. I bought it brand new as a replacement for my k-m. For the past month or so, only when I turn it on after it's been off for a day or so, the first 5-10 images I shoot are either black or very dark, and the internal light meter reads everything as dark as well. It does clear up and register the correct light after I fire a few shots, but I'd really like to know whether or not this issue would be an easy fix or if I need to start searching for a replacement.

Any input is appreciated!!! Thanks

Ok, thanks for the information! I'm basically screwed as far as the hyperfocal scale goes I suppose. No wonder I was so confused, I can't do it! lol I may check some local pawn shops to see if I can find a lens that would work that has the aperture ring and dof scale. I'd look online but I'm sure it wouldn't get here in time for me to complete my assignment.

Zone Focus and Hyperfocal Scale

Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone can help me figure out the best ways to do the zone focus and the hyperfocal scale on my Pentax K-m.

I bought this camera just before Christmas because I'm going to school online at the Art Institute to get my Bachelors in Photography. I'm currently taking a Digital Photography class and my assignment for this weekend is to complete 7 photos of each depth-of-field items listed above, and I'm lost. I've read my book, which seems to give a great explanation, but I'm just confused. I also checked some websites online but they all show photos of types of lenses that I do not have. I have the Pentax 18-55mm lens on there right now. If anyone can give me the "layman's terms" of these two exercises, I would definitely appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!
