Pentax K-30 Firmware v1.04 Released
Fixes bug in v1.03
By PF Staff in Firmware Updates on Apr 4, 2013
Pentax has just released a new (v1.04) firmware update for the K-30 which addresses instabilities found in v1.03, the previous firmware from late February. The new firmware does not introduce any new features or other improvements.
Since all Pentax firmware updates are cumulative, those who are running v1.02 or older will benefit from the fixes found in v1.03 when installing v1.04. We recommend that all K-30 owners update to the latest firmware version for the best possible stability.
