    Hi all, just to let you know about a week ago Pentax released the first K3 firmware update, V1.01.

    http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/k3_s.html

    Have not downloaded it yet but will when I have a chance. The tweaks appear minor for this one, featureing:


    • Shorten processing time of combining time for HDR Capture.
    • Improved performance of continuous shooting when using phase-matching autofocus.
    • Extended enlarged display time for live view.
    • Improved stability for general performance.

    An encouraging sign they are up for supporting this camera :)

    Cheers,

    Atavar.

    I am ashamed to say I have not yet had a spare moment to upgrade. Will do so tomorrow, hopefully :)

    "

    They always say that, but what does it actually *mean*?

    And if anyone says "stops it falling over", it's going to get nasty.

    Well, the camera is updated and it still functions which is thumbs up all round. The improvements mentioned are unfortunately for functions I have not as yet used so cannot compare but I am happy to say all is functioning A-OK.
