Re: battery voltages in EXIF data

One more thing that I found when I explore my archive's RAWs.

My new camera has voltages about 7.2-76V on firmware 1.00 till 1.02. After that I have one and half month pause and after I upgrade to 1.03, next RAWs has voltages 0-4-6V, i.e. may be error occurred in 1.03 firmware?

I would be glad if I could help. But this is very strange to me.

Do you have access to another K-5 or K-5 II (may be at a dealer)? If you have, you could check all your batteries one after the other in different bodies and take a shot. Then you could compare the EXIF voltages.

You also may contact Pentax to assure that exiftool voltage values are correct (send them some image files).

Maybe you send a private message to Dale and ask him to look into this.
