3 Questions regarding specialised settings in K1

Well, sorry for the raving on but, ......not having any previous experience with pixel shift in the past, when selecting PS what do the 2 MC options refer to? The other question, with regarding to focus peaking does this act solely as a visual assist with focus areas of contrast in liveview and has not overall affect on the actual focus input itself? The other question i'd like to highlight is regards to the new update of the electronic shutter in liveview. I normally focus in live view then shoot the final product in normal af with mirror up. Selecting this new update does this affect the type of focus in any way? Appreciate any help on either of the questions. Cheers

I'll try to answer them. Motion Control on is useful if there is anything in the image that is moving. Otherwise you get weird pixelated artifacts on leaves/foliage/water. If you are shooting a completely still scene or a static object (say a product shot) then using Motion Control is not needed.

Focus peaking is just a focus assist for use in live view mode. It does not affect the image itself and does nothing if you are shooting through the viewfinder.

The electronic shutter has the benefit of eliminating shutter shock, which can still happen with mirror lock up. When you use a mechanical shutter, it can cause vibrations in the system that blur your image when the shutter speed is right (typically between 1/4 second and 1/100 second).

Hope that helps.

Certainly does. So which of the 2 MC options should I choose, the first or the second one?

I doesn't really matter if you are shooting raw as it can be changed back and fort in DCU.
But MC not highlighted should be used if the scene is completely static.

To add to this comment: check for compatibility with you image editing software before taking pictures that will be hard to recreate. The Pentax supplied software does allow the pixel shift images to be developed but it is not very fancy software. I think the Adobe LR software supports pixel shift but I am not sure how well this support works when taking advantage of 'motion control' (there are reviews to read). Silky Pix has good support, I think. The Pentax software is based on SPix. The SPix software goes on sale from time to time.
