K3 possible firmware glich

firmware version 1.11.

Direction pad (4 way controller) does not work when auto focus mode set to A9 or Sel 1,2,3,4.

Can someone try this and confirm that it should work.

Ahhh.... just realised the D pad is used to move and select the auto focus area. But how can I choose the drive mode, white balance etc.

You can use the button for SD card slot selection (bottom right corner of the direction pad) to toggle between moving the AF area and drive mode, WB etc.

Thanks. It works a treat. I'm on holiday and the other day a flock of geese flew close overhead and I couldn't get into continuous shooting mode.

Cheers and thanks for the quick response
