Lovely, looking forward to anything else you might write on the Cobalt pack on your website - do share it here if you can! I like the film simulation on the GR but I'd be interested in having more control over those colors on the computer

GRii flaky controls

Thanks to both of you for the suggestions!

I'm not sure I have the tools to get those screws off, so I settled with blowing some air behind the circuit board. However, I was also able to clean the contacts of the shutter button with some rubbing alcohol, which I suspect would be one of the most likely buttons to cause the issues I was describing. So far it has seemed to have done the trick, and I haven't had an issue yet.

Thanks,

I've started disassembling but the back button contacts are not easily accessible, there is a circuit board as pictured which is screwed to the back panel itself, and the screws are tight they don't want to come out - could they be glued? any advice?

GRii flaky controls

Hey all,

I'm hoping for any help with troubleshooting my GRii, which has become my most commonly used camera over the past three years. Recently it has developed an issue where when I press some of the buttons, they don't 'hold'.

For example, when I press the review photos button, it will briefly flash the last photo I took but then return to shooting mode. Similarly with the menu button, I see the menu briefly, but it quickly returns to shooting mode.

Another example, when I enter manual focus mode and press the 'up' button to engage the manual focus controls, once I start using the scroll wheel or the +/- buttons to change the focus sometimes it leaves manual focus mode, and I start changing the exposure settings.

I'm not inadvertently touching other buttons when this happens. sometimes turning it on and off helps, other times removing the battery has helped. But the problem hasn't gone away.

I was on the original firmware for the longest time, and I just upgrade to v.3 to see it if would fix things but it hasn't. I'm planning to do a factory reset next.

Any ideas on what could be wrong, or what I could do? I don't want to send it to precision because... precision. And also because as far as I understand they charge a flatrate repair price of around $350 for the GRii, which is more than I'd want to pay after three years of use and not having faith that they'll fully repair the issue. Please correct me if you know differently about the price, or repair experiences with precision for GR cameras.

Thanks in advance!

My only wish is if there was an add-on grip with a bit of a index-finger cutout so it was easier to use the KP with bigger lenses without having to squeeze so hard on the camera, which I find myself doing. Although proper lens-holding technique helps with that.

Pentax K-3 III or Pentax K-1 II?

Happy KP user here, and I like the image quality difference especially with higher ISOs (3200, 6400) compared to my K-3. Based on that and on the samples and reviews we've seen, K-3 iii image quality would be more than enough for me, especially compared to the bulk of a FF system. My two cents.

You could find generic headphone jack rubber caps on ebay, they won't be custom fitted to the K-3 but it'll plug the hole if that's what you're looking for
