I have a K10 that is back focusing. Is there any way of getting into Debug Mode when the camera is running Firmware 1.31. The only hack I can find is for Firmware 1.30.

I use DS Colour Labs for all my printing and up to now I have used Fuji luster paper for my B&W images. Now I see that DSCL also give the choise of Fuji Pearl, which is similar to Kodak Metallic paper.
So my question is. Metallic or luster, which is best for B&W prints ?

Hi
Does anyone use raw therapee to process pics from a K7, I tried some today and the colours are way off. The sky came out yellow and some house bricks came out blue instead of orange. I could not get any colour to look remotely like it should.

AF on K7 is not significantly better than K10, if at all.
As for locking focus in low light I have never had a broblem with this in any kind of light.
Build quality, the doors on the K7 are not as well made as on the K10.I do not see how the card door on the K7 can be WR.
K10 pic quality is better at ISO 100/200
!00% viewfinder is better than K10, but this makes no significant difference.
I see no difference in AWB or metering
Lcd screen may be a bit better but this makes no significant difference to picture taking.
The lens adjustment is a big plus, unfortunately I don't need it at the moment.
Higher ISOs is the only area were the K7 significantly out performs the K10.

I am not saying the K7 is a bad cam, it's an excellent one, just not significantly better than the K10.
Possibly a lot of people find this hard to admit after spending so much on it.

Question to anyone who has migrated from K10D to K7

I think a lot of people on this site must have defective K10s.
I shoot a lot of rock bands and a bit of drag racing, I have never had any problem with the K10 auto focus, the K7 focuses just as fast, but no faster. As for metering they are both the same, they under expose,( this is a good thing ).The K7 has a lot more noise at low ISOs, its visible even at ISO 200.

I have both K10 and K7, if I had to throw one away it would be the K7. K10 has better pic quality and just as fast auto focus. K10 also has better build quality.

Thanks for all the help everyone. I have now extracted the files but I still cannot open the readme.txt file. This file explaines the update procedure, the Pentax site tells me to read this file before attempting the update, so I still cannot proceed.

I have downloaded the new firmware for my K10, but when I try to extract the file by double clicking on it all that happens is that I get a screen with the words, Unidentified program wants to access computer, I click Allow and then I get a new screen with Install Directory on it, I click OK and then nothing happens.
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.

With my K10 the Program line has 4 settings one of which is MTF. This program prioritizes the best aperture settings for the attached lens. Can anyone tell me if this only works with Pentax lenses, or will it also work with non Pentax lenses ?
