No, it’s not broken! Honestly, Pentax cameras are tough, especially my K-7! No, I’m not paid in any way to say that or to post any of these. My K-7 had been accidentally dropped to different hard surfaces several times (scar marks are all over the body), bathed in sea water (I just rinsed it off with fresh water), and accidentally bumped it several times to other cameras and concrete and rocks due from rushing to a scene for news coverage. Anyway, about the black tape, I just stick it there so that I won’t accidentally open the pop-up flash that I might, unknowingly, snap off if I’m running or climbing, as I never use the pop-up flash except when I’m truly desperate for light. _______________________ © Richard Balonglong
