As no one else has mentioned it...

Corrected Unstable performance may rarely occur in firmware version 1.41
Quite what was unstable they don't say!

Hopefully it's the unstable electronic video stabilisation now having the promised sensor stabilisation option, but you'd think they'd say that if that is what they mean.

Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

1): Faster focussing when taking pictures of sleeping cats.

2): SR now works with twigs narrower than 5mm

3): Out of focus ( OOF ) is now called 'Super Bokeh'

Half Man... Half Pentax ... Half Cucumber

Many thanks for posting! This is the first I have seen about it. I wish they could have an option to send an E-Mail to let owners know of updates!

Corrected Unstable performance may rarely occur in Movie mode or Live View status of still picture in firmware version 1.42.
Could this be the promised update that reinstates sensor stabilisation in movie mode?
