Pentax K 1 In Hand (3)

Ricoh Imaging will be releasing a firmware update for the Pentax K-1 towards the end of September that adds new functions and improves settings. 

Pentax Forums says that V1.30 will bring the following updates: 

  • The Electronic Shutter can be selected at the Menu to reduce camera shake from the mechanical shutter when shooting with Live View mode.
  • 1:1 Crop Mode - The square crop mode, originally seen on the K-1 prototype, is back.
  • You will be able to go back to single-shot mode while BKT is selected on the Function Dial
  • You will be able to choose to bracket for the Type 2 AA filter simulator setting.
