K5II & K5IIs to PK_Tether test request

G'Day Pentaxians

I put the question to Tomasz whether PK_Tether is working with the new version of the K5 (this may/not also also apply to K30, I'm not sure)

He has sent me a version for testing, the only problem is I don't have the new K5II/s yet

So as a request, Is there anybody interested in running this version to see if there are any issues and then forward the debug report to me and I will Email them on to Tomasz

This newer version will create its own debug report and place it in the same folder and the program and setting folder (as usual)

Please PM me your Email address and I will Email and I will send you the file.

Tomaz sent me yesterday a corrected version 0.6.9, although it recognizes the K-5 IIs and that works.
However, I found two faults checked on two computers and two USB cables:
- The Higher Lcd screen flickers: slightly, but Quickly
- ISO 6400 images (and more) are parasitized by broad green horizontal lines (Certainly it is independent of Pk-tether).

Thank you to Tomaz

have you let Tomasz know.
The top LCD screen flicker is a known issue, you need to turn it off before you connect your computer to your camera.
