High speed fps - Pentax K100D

Hey,

I saw a video of a broken K100D on vimeo..

He dropped it, and when he slips the batteries in, the shutter goes crazy fast.

Soo ... does the Pentax K100D do something that no one knows yet!

Maybe there is a firmware to let you do this?

I feel like thats a really good way to kill your shutter. I find the fps to be fine, but a bigger RAW buffer would be awesome

Yeah, it's broken. The shutter may be going crazy fast, but it's not actually processing any image data. All he's gonna do is kill the shutter.

So are french fries and watermelons.

Chances are, if the mirror is flipping, the shutter is firing too...
