HELP!!! K3 misbehAving OR I may be confused
Mar 1, 2014

Here is the problem: For whatever reason only the GREEN MODE seems to be working on my camera

All other modes fail. Sometimes I get a single good image, other times none at all in a set of shots--

Images 1-3 taken with GREEN MODE -- they are OK

Images 4-6 Taken with TAV (I tried TV and AV with the same poor results) -- Auto focus mode ( I have tried AFS AFC and AFA -- makes no difference);

AF active area 27 points (also tried 7 points and spot -- makes no difference)

Shot with JPEG, L, and ***

PLEASE help, just arrived in Thailand for a two week vacation


The Three GREEN Mode images follow first
