  • STREAM they were.  I thought I looked in all the subdirectories on the card, obviously not. Thanks to all who replied.  Whew!
  • Took a bunch of ACHVD movies at a jazz festival with the ZS20.  Removed SD card & inserted in both Windows PC & Chromebook, each show only JPG files.  All the movies playback on the camera with SD ...

    Well, if it seems too good to be true...... I got a call from "Jeff" just after my last post, warning me about the lack of warranty on an import model, and they could sell me the warranted model ...
  • But, but, the salesman assured me that it's a new box and has the official Pentax warranty and is not grey market (tongue-in-cheek).  Amazon's price is only $349, so the $299 doesn't seem that far ...
  • I am holding my breath.  I usually try to buy from B&H, but their price is $497. We'll see.
  • Created discussions 18-135 & Abe's of Maine

    Well, as it turns out...... CRIS after I called again sent me to a Pentax customer service rep. Monique said that didn't sound right and immediately sent me a prepaid label to ship the camera back. ...

    Thanks, Dave. Sending in the clip is a good idea, except that CHRIS says this is not a problem.  They said "Camera operation sounds are normal when recording movies."  So apparently our choice is ...

    I sent the camera in for repair ($18.25 for mail & insurance). All that was done was to set the recording sound level to zero (off) and point to pg 131 of the manual, where it says "When ...
  • Pentax support reports this is not a common K-30 issue, so they said send it in.  Before I do so, I ask any other K-30 users that have this problem to chime in. TIA, Ed
  • thanks, good advice.  calling Pentax soon after looking around some more. at least it's still under warranty:-)
  • I can hear the sound straight from the camera on replay.
  • Thanks for the replies. I turned off SR, went into manual focus and took a movie in a quiet room. Unfortunately, on replay, the frog croaking sound was still there. If the culprit is the SR, why ...
  • Created discussions Grinding noise on K-30 video
    Hi all:  I love my k-30 except for this one issue.  Without a lot of sound to block it out, my videos have a gyrating, grinding noise.  A roaring waterfall will block it out but not much else. Anyo ...
  • OK, but now go into Control Panel .. ..and go to Programs. Check for and kill anything with the word Toolbar on it; don't be surprised if all the usuals are there, Ask, AVG Scan, Google, Skype, ...
  • Thanks all, for the advice. Malwarebytes found nothing.  Spybot found the usual suspects, which I then fixed. Problem still existed. Reinstalled Chrome.  Problem solved, apparently. Apologies to ...
  • Created discussions What changed on Dpreview?
    All of a sudden in the forums, words are underlined and if you slide the cursor over, a popup appears. Besides, it seems the number of ads has quadrupled and have become quite annoying. I know ads ...
