A few curios from the JP K-30 FAQ

Via RiceHigh, I just noticed the K30 FAQ is up on Pentax JP:

Google translate

A few things of interest:

What is the bundled software?
Answer

(Ver.3.0.0.5) is included with the SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3.0 for PENTAX.
SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3.0 for PENTAX is a software and make color adjustments to expand it (development) develops the RAW file and saved in TIFF format or JPEG. RAW files can be handled by this software is only DNG files taken in and Q K-30, K-01

Image of K-30 Can I use a Digital Camera Utility4?
Answer

RAW image editing and deployment is not compatible with JPEG images can be viewed.
Interesting that you can only use the bundled K-30 software to open RAW files shot with the Q, K-30 and K-01.
And PDCU 4 - as supplied with the K-5, Kr, Kx etc - can't open K-30 RAWs - only K-30 JPGs.

Looks like Pentax will be moving forward with Silkypix Developer Studio in future, rather than PDCU 4.

PDCU 4 was silkypix, it just save them the money to adapt it.

Curious about if the software will be picky with camera you use, i doubt you need to intsall two version of the program if you happen to own a K5 and Q for example.

When the Q came out, I downloaded Silkypix Dev Studio. It wouldn't open any of my K-5 or Kx DNG's. So yes, you may need to run both softwares. Or just use Lightroom etc.

Plenty of HD space for another RAW program. I don't see a big deal about it.

The Silkypix that came with the Q would not open any of my other Pentax DSLRs as rawr stated. The K-01 Silky will also open Q DNG. Silkypix wants you to upgrade to their full program. I like it a lot and may do so.
thanks
