That was quick. Wouldn't it be easier to just put it on a tripod (Stability)?????.
CHEERS Vic.

Daft question, where on the SD card does it go, inside DCIM or separate from DCIM?

I think for safety sake the usual recommendation is to use a blank SD card but otherwise place it outside DCIM

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

It is a blank SD card and I have put outside the DCIM, but nothing happened, hence the question, I'll try again, thanks.

If the firmware file you downloaded is a zipped file you will need to unzip it first or the camera will not be able to detect it.

Not saying you are wrong but I donít remember unzipping the file on previous occasions but I will give that a try. Thanks

Yes - unzip the file, copy the .bin file to the root folder of the SD Card. Insert the card in to slot 1 of the camera and hold down the menu button as you turn the camera on.

If the file you download has the extension .zip, which all Pentax firmware updates usually do, then it will be a zipped file

My MkII wobbles when I've been drinking beer or wine - I'm glad they've addressed this so early on in the product lifecycle
