Pentax announced the release of firmware update version 1.20 for Windows and Mac OS. The only new feature is Pentax Remote Assistant 3 software support, which was announced simultaneously. Remote Assistant allows you to control one or more cameras (K10D only) by your computer. You can shoot directly to your hard drive, control interval mode, bulb timer and many other standard camera functions.
Pentax Photo Browser is also updated to version 3.11 to support upcoming DA* lenses. As Pentax Japan website says, “Only K10D users are allowed to download this software,” but it works well with the files produced by the previous models.
