Pentax KP Firmware v1.11 Released

Minor stability improvements

By PF Staff in Firmware Updates on Jul 11, 2019

Ricoh Imaging has just released the second firmware update for the Pentax KP.  The version 1.11 update simply improves stability by addressing the usual minor bug fixes.

Although the firmware brings nothing else to the table, this makes sense given the fact that the previous KP update was released over a year ago.

Download the KP firmware from the official Pentax firmware site.

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