firmware

I have a K-x and want to find out what version of firmware it has. How do I do that?

Hold down the menu button when you turn it on.

When I do that , I get 'low battery' message. I tried again with an new set of Duracell rechargeable batteries and still the same thing.

Hello and welcome to the Forums. The firmware is listed in the Exif data. Windows photo gallery shows it in the properties file for a pic. Or you can read it here

Thank you Patrick9. I did not realize how much information is stored for each picture. WOW. So I discovered that I have version 1.02.21.14. I think not much changed with the next version of firmware plus I have seen a few posts that has difficulty after they upgraded to 1.03. Should I bother?

I don't know much about the updates for the K-X and what issues they addressed. I have the K-30 with the original firmware. It works fine for me so I have not upgraded it . I did upgrade the ist*DL tho.
