K3 - shut off

I am wondering if a got a 'dud' ?
I have updated my camera and all that jazz. (still new - store sold it to me as New but it have 1909 on the count)
- anyways when i shut the camera off after I take a photo it takes a long time to turn off. The screen on the back takes forever to shut down, as well as after i take a photo it takes a long time to preview it. (i get the hour glass i would guess for 20-30 seconds) is this normal ? thank you

20+ seconds for the back screen to shutdown after turning the camera to the 'off' position from just taking a single photo is NOT normal even on the older K-5.

What is 'undating' ? I think you mean updating maybe?? Have you installed the latest firmware and is the battery fully charged?

The only scenario that this would happen in is if the camera was still writing to the card, or performing slow shutter speed NR. Make sure you have a UHS-I card in the camera.

I have 2 brand new cards 1 is Lexar professional 633X - the other is a scandisk microSD adapter card - I will try reversing them so the UHS-1 is in the first slot ... I did that and it seems to help I took 3 shots very quickly and then I could preview them right away & my camera shut down when I turned it off. THANK YOU !
