K-3 DNG RAW File Format

I recently got K-3 and am still in learning process. I shoot RAW and would like to use DNG format files. However, the camera is set to PEFF format. How do I change it to DNG format?

You go to the menu and Select Camera 1 then scroll to Image Capture Settings and right arrow over it, scroll down to RAW File Format and select DNG.
