Did they keep the service/debug mode?

For those who have upgraded, have they left the service/debug mode being accessible?

I don't kave K10D but someone tried & said the debug mode's gone. Pentax probably changed the key combination.

No, actually this came out today (3/6) according to the japanese page. Looks like they fixed the rear-curtain sync bug with the internal flash which was introduced in 1.10.

Re: K10D firmware 1.11

Hadn't seen it posted before myself. Looks like they've fixed the trailing curtain synch issue that surfaced in fw v1.10.

Re: K10D firmware 1.11

This is one of the upgrades - WTF does it mean??

"1. Correspond to development in the RAW data camera when multiple exposing."

Re: K10D firmware 1.11

here's the description of the "fixes"

Correspond to development in the RAW data camera when multiple exposing.

When built-in flash is used the luminescence control by the trailing-shutter-curtain sync was corrected.

what do they mean??

Well, this is the ONLY one they admitted to and fixed. NO update on VPN, sharpness/NR menu options or anything else no matter how many posts.

Some RAW issue with multiple exposures they decided was more important.

Anyone who did the update notice ANY other differences not documented?

But this is 2ndhand news. Do try and report back. I think the fw can always be reversed (on my DS at least).

Re: Did they keep the service/debug mode?

Sorry, but 2nd hand info was right. Just tried it on my k10d and the service menu is no longer accessible through the procedure we had before.

I did try all combinations of 2 keys pressed at the same time while turning the camera on and no luck. I started to try the 3 key+opening combinations, but it's getting late and I have a long day tomorrow.

Re: K10D firmware 1.11

well, i upgraded my firmware... so far so good! got a little scare since once the i finished the upgrade and the word 'complete' displayed, the LED light kept flashing... left it on thinking the upgrade wasnt complete yet but after a while, decided to turn off the camera. it booted up showing ver 1.11 firmware... again, so far so good!

took some pictures around my apartment... everything seems fine!

stupid me i did not take any pics with version 1.10 to compare if there were any differences... arg!

a quick observation... the camera seems to expose better. i took some pics of familiar scenes around my apartment and i seem to remember that the camera underexposed quite a bit... now the exposure seems brighter... better exposed?

again, maybe its just me and my wishful thinking! hehehe!

i hope somebody will be more patient and take before and after pics before doing the upgrade.

goodluck everyone!

I wouldn't be surprised if Pentax changed the sequence for entering the debug mode with 1.11 after the leak.

This was something I actually was missing. Only took them about a month to address it--I think that's pretty good.

Hee hee, I remember each firmware update with the *istD people were imaginging all sorts of things. Many of us did some quite detailed testing of exposures before and after and never found a thing.....
