K-1 combines frames

Hi,
I just got a brand new K-1. Tried with some of the lenses. Everything looked great until I put DA 40. After a few shots it started to combine 2 shots together: shot 1 is OK, shot 2 shows 1+2, shot 3 is OK, shot 4 shows 3+4.
Did I miss something in the settings (I checked HDR is off) or the camera is screwed?
Thank you very much.

Sound like you have the drive mode set to multiple exposure. Set it to single shot.

One of my favorite things about the K-1 is the lock mode which allows you to prevent these accidental settings changes. It is quick and easy to use. I have been wanting such a feature for years having had WB, Drive mode etc change accidentally as I scrambled up rocks or just as the camera bumped against me as I walked. Try it.

I'd recommend the custom setting that makes the rear controller default to controlling the AF points. That way if you need to change the drive mode, you have to press the little AF point button first. I really like this setting on the K-1 as it prevent effectively accidental changes, for me at least.
