K-01 Bug List
May 5, 2012

Would like to share a bug list as an attempt to confirm the issues I experienced are not specific to my copy nor user error for that matter. I am particularly concerned with #1... any owner's feedback are much appreciated.

1) using internal flash with Program the exposure seems dead-on most of the time but Tv and Av tends to be consistently 0.7-1 EV over-exposed

2) occasionally not responsive after shot - cannot replay shot, etc. pressing shutter once seems to recover from the hang-up. I suspect it might be an SD card issue, will continue to observe as I can yet to reproduce the issue consistently.

3) in Auto mode, Flash will switch from auto-flash to manual flash if I touch the flash setting in other modes and then switch back to auto

4) AE lock customization for movie mode - AF1 seems to imply half-press of shutter will also re-focus but in my case AF1/AF2 behaves the same: only AE-lock can refocus

5) (enhancement request) pre-focused shutter lag seems a tad slow

6) (enhancement request) why can't we have peaking in movie mode with manual focus

7) (enhancement request) button customization can use more flexibility - currently certain mode-specific (e.g. program shift) customization will render the button useless in non-applicable modes

Point #2
In reply to Bonchef, May 5, 2012

As for your #2 i think it's your card, i use Sandisk Ultra or Extreme and Panasonic "Gold" series (similar to Sandisk extreme class 10) cards and they all work perfectly and never had any problem with your comment in point #2.

(6) looks a deal breaker for me (if I would buy the K-1 for making movies).

Sure. All Nex cameras can use peaking in video. I think all recent A-mount SLT cameras can do it as well.

And of course most camcorders have been doing it for years.

1) I have exactly the same exposure in P, Av and Tv with internal flash.
2) It needs some time for replay but it's consistant. I use SanDisk Ultra.
3) Confirmed.
4) Confirmed.
5) Agree.
6) Agree.
7) Agree.

Thanks a lot! I will take the camera back to shop and compare based on the 15-day exchange. The challenge is when swapping I would not know what other defects I may get on next draw...

I realized it could be related to the "no instant review" option I used. I tried a new sandisk card today and same hang-up from time to time. Then I switch back to instant replay and the hang-up is seemingly gone.

I'm using 1s instant review and some delay exists yet it's consistent.

Re: K-01 with external flash
In reply to Bonchef, May 11, 2012

Dear K-01 owners, please try external flash. My Sigma EF-500 DG Super doesn't work. However it does work on both K100D and K-r.
I'd like to know whether it's bug or malfunction or incompatibility.
