K-7 1.11 firmware success

I remember seeing a thread on how to manually control video exposure on the K-7 with firmware v1.03

I just checked video settings on firmware v1.11 and discovered manual aperature adjustment and exposure control along with AE-L. The * shows up right next to the video camera symbol and locks the exposure.

To achieve Manual Aperture- Movie settings > Movie Aperture Control > Fixed

One thing I cannot change is the ISO, so compensate your exposure accordingly or else the camera will do it for you. However, I cannot change any exposure/aperture settings once recording has been started. Not too much of a biggie for me, just have to adjust to each exposure take-by-take depending on the scene changes.

Now to shoot some stuff again, firmware 1.0 to 1.11 has some noticeable improvements.

Happy weekend!

Sounds good, will try it out. I thought AE-L was available since 1.10?

Nice that you discover something new. It was allready present at the start of the K-7. But somehow the AE-L lock isn't in the manual. I read about it when the K-x came out and checked it.

Made a short video about it, when to use it: it's one year old
