The 4-way controller is also used for more than selecting and navigating menus. In rec mode, each button is a shortcut to frequently used camera settings: (up)Drive mode, (right)ISO, (down)Flash, and (left)White balance.


pentax_K-r_custom_color_menu.gifThe K-r also has a Custom Image menu to adjust settings such as color and contrast before shooting an image. You can choose from Bright, Natural, Portrait, Landscape, Vibrant, Muted, Bleach Bypass, Reversal Film, and Monochrome. You can also alter each of these pre-sets to create your own custom set.
