I little background first. I'm used to using a pentax K1000, I'm not scared of manual.

I recently bought a Pentax K10D, and there's just too much that the camera tries to do itself. I don't own any autofocus lenses, bout the only thing automatic is the aperture on my 50mm.

I can't figure out how to get the camera to give me an exposure meter while letting me set the aperture and the shutter speed myself. I'm sure it's in the user's man(;ual, but if you've seen it, you can guess why I'm here.

I'm not good with automatic, automatic takes bad pictures (least in my case). any help would be much appreciated.

Maybe i didn't make myself clear enough. All I want is the exposure meter to appear when the camera is in manual mode.

Hi, just looking around and found your post. If you will post over in the Pentax SLR forum, I know ther are members using manual lenses and can tell you exactly how to proceed.

Ah, OK. Just proves how little I pay attention.
