Another Firmware Update

New firmware for the *ist DS (ver 2.02), *ist DL (ver 1.03), *ist DS2 (ver 1.02), *ist DL (ver 1.02), K100D (ver 1.02) and K110D (ver 1.02). It looks like the updates "improve SDHC support" over previous versions.

They're available at the Pentax Japan Website.

And at PENTAX CANADA...

Hmm. I skipped the last update as no need for the HC cards. Is anyone out there sill have the DS and the technical knowledge to give me the english version of this upgrade. Looks like these are the upgrades


The following function has been added newly:

Continuous AF" mode has been added to the AF settings in the Record Mode menu and AF.S /AF.C can be selected in the Menu
Auto Sensitivity has been added in the sensitivity mode
AE-L button on M has been added in the Custom menu.
The effect of Digital soft filters can be selected from weak, middle or strong
Dutch and Swedish languages has been added to the language
The sample picture will be displayed in the LCD monitor when select picture modes
For prevent the confusion, the item that was not able to be set by the menu, made a gray character.

Anybody tell me what the great advantage to updating this version. I don't speak dutch or Swedish
I wasnever confused about the grey areas not working.

You know I am not sure. I have the DS and skipped the one a few months back as I saw some had issues and I had no need for the SDHC. I have to check tonight.

Yeah, I skipped the last one also (2.01) because people were having some problems.

If you don't have at least 2.0, then I would update it. If you do have 2.0, and have no need for SDHC, then I'd wait for others to update, and see if you can get a read on the results.

I think that is a good idea. However I think this will take a back seat for most with the new K models out there. I think those with the DS or any D series will wait as well. But maybe it has some secrets like a coupon for a new K10 hidden in the code or SR or a bigger LCD or wireless flash operation , ahh who am I kidding I just need to get the K10.

You know, my DS has been languishing in my camera cabinet since I got the K10. You know new toy, must play. I picked it up last night and really marveled at how well it is designed ergonomically. It still fits my hand like a glove, is still very small, light weight, is still a great camera, and I still intend to use it. Of course the newness of the K10 will have to wear off first.
