New version 0.6.1
Posted on January 10, 2012 by Tomasz
I released new version with two fixes.
Firs fix is for problem when PK_Tether doesn’t want starts. During last update of my development environment target for PK_Tether project was changed to “.NET 3.5 Client Profile”. So now I revert it back to normal “.NET 3.5″
Second fix is for changing ISO from Auto to Manual.

Yeah, sorry. Found the thread myself.
Anyway, it's a great tool so in this way will just get more exposure...

I tried most of the options on PK TETHER .6.4 Using the K-5 on a windows 7 pro.

Above iso 4500 I get green lines across the photos.
On the 8 th shot, a notice pops up stating camera buffer is full and should I save or delete photos
Periodic shooting worked fine
Bulb shooting failed once requiring a camera restart
Was able to change all available camera settings with software.
Photos saved correctly
