My K30 shooting DNG files, not PEF. Why?

There's an option which lets you choose one over the other in the capture menu. DNG is generally preferred due to wider compatibility.

Adam - With all due respect, might I suggest that you glance at the K30 Manual? Pentax PEF has been dropped from the K30. Maybe a future Update might return it.

Regards, Dave.
