Nice to know that they are staying on top of things.
I haven't updated DCU5 since installed as V.5.0 when I bought the K3. Whether this would make any difference, no idea.
Thanks for sharing !

The main difference is support for the new functions introduced in the K-S2 and K-3 II, such as clarity enhancement and pixel shift resolution. The K-1 introduces two new options, namely skin tone and adjustable strength clarity enhancement.

Well then, no need to change something that's working.
Thanks for the reply!

I got my K10D used and it came without any software. After visiting the Ricoh site it seems to me that I would have to get hold of the Photo Lab software that originally shipped with the camera and run through all its updates before I could install this update. Is it really worth all the effort?

  • Added [ON/OFF ] selection for the Motion Correction function of Pixel Shift Resolution System when developing the RAW- format files

Did you delete the database file as I suggested? If the file is corrupt the software will likely lockup at startup.

If you mean " Users->username->Appdata->Local folder." i did it several times, files and / or folder(s). Before installing, after installing, before and after update to 5.5.1 allways the sam results. It looks like that it simply return after displaying the splash screen. Maybe some dll's are missing, Processexplorer, dependency walker, no results. No entries in the logs.

Did you save the installer on a device (e.g. USB key) named S-SW140 and install it from there? If not, you should give it a try.

I'm not seeing them after updating the software, either. In-camera only for now, I guess.
