K10D needs some software update

Hi,
I thank you to give this great service to us.
I have Pentax K10D and need some feature which are already in the K20D/K7D and they are just software so Pentax can insert them to K10D's new firmware:
1. Add the copyright info inside the EXIF file,
2. Powerful noise reduction
3. HDR image making inside the K10D

Is there any possibility about that features can be added to K10D's firmware or Pentax has forgot us?
Thanks.

Firstly, the K10D has been out of production for over two years. Pentax is not going to add features to an old camera. I don't know of any other camera maker who will do that, either.

Secondly, the guys at B & H have absolutely no control over this.

You can add copyright information in post-production. I use a program called Exiftools (Google it), that can list, add and modify the Exif fields.

There are powerful noise reduction programs available for post-production, as well. Pentax seems to have made a conscious decision to NOT include really powerful noise reduction in-camera. NR can degrade image sharpness. Pentax seems to be saying that, if you want strong NR, do it on your computer.

You CAN do multiple exposures on the K10D, with different apertures or shutter speeds for each exposure. This is not true HDR, though. Most HDR afficionados seem to prefer doing it on their computers, anyway and consider the K20D's and K-7's in-camera HDR to be mediocre, at best.

I am sorry, we have no information on whether or not Pentax will come out with a firmware update for these features.
