    I just need basic information hints tips about the best way to shoot with this camera still gotta get batteries but it would be nice to know the tips about this camera ive never used.


    with the pentex k100d i was just messing around and noticed alot of pictures turn out really pixalated and i think my sister messed with my settings what should the settings be.


    here are just pictures i took with the pentex.

    some pictures that i take look really bad with the pixals i dont know how these look i havent looked to see quality

    Accord to the Exif

    Camera Make: PENTAX Corporation
    Camera Model: PENTAX K100D Super
    Image Date: 2009:03:27 13:01:37
    Flash Used: No
    Focal Length: 55.0mm (35mm equivalent: 82mm)
    Exposure Time: 0.0003 s (1/3000)
    Aperture: f/9.5
    ISO equiv: 3200
    White Balance: Auto
    Metering Mode: Matrix
    Exposure: Action program (based towards fast shutter speed)

    The problem most likely is related to the ISO setting. It is set at ISO3200. Please check the owner manual on how to change the ISO setting. The lower the number, the lesser the noise when the picture is taken under a bright environment.

    You only need to increase the ISO when light is not sufficient.

    I had a K100D for two years and the first think I thought when I saw those was "ISO 3200." This may have been set manuakky, or it may be a result of shooting in "Action" mode. I believe the ISO setting is Fn > left arrow.
