Grid

We know that grids in viewfinder can be changed, but what kind of grids we will be getting?
I hope for Fibonacci spiral, but I doubt it.

The grid only has one appearance, and it's shown below:



The viewfinder customization options are as follows:

Grid on/off (Record 5)
Electronic level on/off (Record 5)
AF frame on/off (Record 5)
Spot metering frame on/off (Record 5)
AF points on/off (Record 5)
Viewfinder light auto/off (C9)

The thick crop frame will be shown only when the camera is in crop mode.

Completely off topic, but this question came out of my mind after reading this post... The focus peaking of the K1 will have zebra pattern?

The K-1 also seems to have a 1:1 crop mode (as I've seen in some screenshots of the menus) so I believe Adam's picture does not show all possible lines.

Where is the reference to the 1:1 crop? Could it be in the editing modes:

Edit - Image Rotation, Color Moiré Correction, Resize, Cropping (Aspect ratio and Slant adjustment available),
Movie Edit (Divide or delete selected frames), Capturing a JPEG still picture from a movie, Saving RAW data in buffer memory, Image Copy
Specifications | PENTAX K-1 | RICOH IMAGING

The Ricoh features page on crop doesn't mention or show anything about 1:1 cropping.

I've noticed it in some pre-production firmwares. This is a screenshot from a hands-on video. The 1:1 crop is the last option in the list.

But alas, it seems to have been removed from the final firmware (and it's not in the manual either).

Of topic; can you give link to the manual, somehow I cannot find it.

I don't have it either but I only saw a screenshot of the page mentioning the crop modes. So no idea where to find the complete manual, sorry.

I don't want to deny anyone a feature, but are you looking to save memory card space in the field? Save a little post-processing time? I'm not great with post-processing, but it seems to me that cropping is one of the easiest operations in the world, and also something I'd rather do in post.

If it was in the firmware it could be added back in a later release unless design changes in the camera itself no longer support it.
