PENTAX K10D FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION 1.30



VERSION HISTORY



Version 1.30

* Added compatibility with the supersonic motor drive of Pentax SDM lenses.

Version 1.20

* Added the required programming for compatability with the Pentax Remote Assistant 3 software.

Version 1.11

* Improved multiple exposure function when shooting in RAW.
* Corrected an issue with luminescence control and trailing shutter curtain sync when using the built-in flash.

Version 1.10 (CLICK HERE for a PDF containing more details on v1.10 changes):

* Using the camera's built-in flash, you can now wirelessly control external Pentax flashes. Previously, you needed an accessory flash mounted in your camera's hot shoe, but now the built-in flash can act as a control flash.
* In autofocus select mode, you can program the AF button to instantly return to the center autofocus point.
* In Tv or Av mode, you can now program the second e-dial to adjust your ISO setting.
* In any exposure mode except Sv and TAv, you can change your ISO setting with the front e-dial while pressing the OK button. The camera will display your ISO in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel as you adjust your setting.
* In TAv mode, you can program the green button to return to the camera's program line. Previously this functionality was only available in M mode.
* You now have additional options for programming your e-dials in P mode.
* Pressing the green button while adjusting flash exposure compensation will now return you to the default value.
* Corrected an issue in some rare cases where a long exposure might produce a vertical stripe.
* Corrected an issue where the battery charge indicator would sometimes show empty in bulb exposure mode.

But the 1.30 firmware won't let you use the debug mode for AF adjustments, which quite some of the K10D users found it to be a crucial "feature".

For more detailed and related info, you can read my old articles below:-

It will let you, but only with additional program, not by key-combo.

RiceHigh: Thans for the links. It is always a good thing to know how to go back after an upgrade just in case it did not work or not happy with it.
