Questions About Selling *ist D
Jun 16, 2012

I am about to sell my long-unused *ist D to a colleague for whom it will be all the camera that she needs. Before passing it over to her, I could use help with a couple of questions.

1. It comes, of course, with the first version of Pentax's processing software. Is there a place where she can download the current version? Will Pentax allow her to? I don't find such a download on Pentax's web site.

2. I always shot PEFs with this camera. She will probably shoot JPEGs. I recall users complaining that JPEGs were soft and lack brilliance. What settings should I use for sharpening and brilliance so that she is pleased with the images?

Thanks for your help.


P.S. I'll be glad to see this fine camera back in use.
