Pentax K-1 Firmware v1.43 Released

Stability improvement over prior firmware

By PF Staff in Firmware Updates on Nov 10, 2017

Ricoh Imaging has just released a new firmware update for the Pentax K-1.  This update addresses an stability issue introduced in the prior firmware update, v1.42, which itself patched an issue from the previous firmware version. 

There are no new features in this firmware update, but as always, it includes the contents of all previous updates (many of which were feature-enhancing).  We therefore recommend the update for all current K-1 users.

Download the K-1 firmware from the official Pentax firmware site.

See our in-depth review for more information about the Pentax K-1.

  • Corrected – Unstable performance may rarely occur in Movie mode or Live View status of still picture in firmware version 1.42.
