Pentax K3 II debug mode.

Hi.
Anyone knows how to unlock the debug mode in Pentax K3 II? I bought a K3 II last week for my trip starting tomorrow. I tested the camera with a few lenses and see that its front focusing even after an AF adjustment of -10. There is no time left for me to get this replaced before I leave.

Not sure about K-3 II debug mode, but you could try the K-3 debug menu.

But be aware that you could make your problem worse via a hasty global adjustment.

If the issue is there for all lenses (which would be unusual), you may simply need to do a lot of LiveView shooting on your trip . Focus peaking on the K-3 series is great.

Hi rawr, Thank you for the reply. I was on vacation and couldnt reply earlier. I figured out that the issue was with the new Tamron lens i bought so I returned the lens for a refund. The camera is in good shape and doesnt show issue with other pentax lenses.
I tried the K3 debug Menu option - but that didnt work on the K3II luckily.

Debug menu

I'm still searching for a debug menu. Reason is to switch location, because in my Chinese version GPS logging is just disabled "due to government regulations", which is extremely annoying.

Perhaps try the solution identified by bootcoder in this post on the last page of the firmware hacking thread:

Thanks, that solved my problem! Switching to region 01 activated GPS logging.
