K-x Optical DOF Preview
Mar 8, 2010

Well, I was very glad when I found out the Pentax K-x has optical DOF preview since I've used it substantially with my old Nikon F65 and pretty much got used to it.

The problem is that it seems to work only on M mode and not on P/Tv/Av/Sv modes which I use much more frequently. effectively that makes the optical DOF preview pretty much useless for me.

Am I wrong here? is there a way to use it on any semi automatic mode?

If not, what would you recommend to use the green button for? right now it has no use for me, but I think a program shift function might suit me well.

EDIT: sorry, it does work in Av mode but it's still not enough

Thanks in advance,
Pablo
