I know that I don't shoot Pentax digital, however I got a notice at work earlier today. Pentax Japan has announced firmware update 1.10 for the K-7.
So i thought that I'd be the first to pass it on, for all you Pentax shooters.

Here's the link.

I actually held a K7 for the first time last week.
If I owned one I'd be doing the update.

Hey Frank, there's an update for the firmware. :D

Already loaded it yesterday! Adds some minor in-camera movie editing. I think the most useful thing for me is the ability to auto-focus in Live View mode by half-pressing the shutter. I'm always trying to do that until I realize I MUST use the AF button, so now it'll just work as expected. I can't imagine the on-screen electronic level being terribly useful. I already have one in the viewfinder and the top LCD screen, and it was always on the monitor in Live View mode anyways.

Now it's time for the placebo effect! What non-existent fixes will my brain try to convince me were done in this firmware update? I'll start with the fact that the sensor vibration at start-up sounds LOUDER than it used to, thereby making me want to believe they improved the dust-reduction system.

And is it just me, or did my camera get lighter?!?

...oops, wait [puts battery grip back on]... nevermind...

Does it make sandwiches taste better? I know the firmware update for my D300 sure did. :D

One of the firmware features is your composition will improve on 12% of your photos :D

That and it now only brews import beer :w00t:
