K20D and noise reduction

You cannot turn it off for long exposures!!!

You could do this with the K10D but now not with the K20D.

This is dissapointing and also i have contacted Pentax Support twice asking if they will add this in on a future firmware but i have not gotten a response...

Anybody know if they plan to make it an option to turn it off?

I was of the understanding that having it off when taking long exposures created hot pixels so therefore it is permanently on for long exposures.

Check this one:

Btw, it was reported that hot pixels were no problem at all if exposure was limted to 8 seconds (the trick only seems to work until 8 sec).
