PK Tether and K-30

Is this possible for Pentax K-30? If so, how to?

Thank you

I have heard (not tried) that some functionality is missing and that the camera sometimes locks up after one shot. The image counter tracking your free SD card space jumps to 999 or something like that.

Just downloaded PKtether V7 and installed it.

As reported not all functions work. Aperture, ISO, Bracketing, and others.

It also locked the camera twice and I had to remove the battery to unfreeze it.

In order to make any adjustments after a shutter press you must press disconnect at that time you'll be able to make adjustments in the camera.

I used this program with the K200 and Kr so I'm not new to it's operation.

I continue to have these problems....

Are you saying the program is working for you 100%?

FYI:My K30 has the latest firmware updates.
