i did the update.
i followed what is said on pentax's web site.

everything was ok until i switched off the camera.
(just after the "complete" message is displayed).

then i removed the SD card, and the camera was just blocked,
on or off position: nothing. lcd screen with weird lines on it. scary

i removed the battery, waited a few seconds. then i turned the camera on and it was ok.

firmware 1.01 is well loaded (turn on the camera with menu button pressed.

This worked a treat, but I had a minor heart-attack when checking that it had been installed, because all that appeared was a blank screen. :? So I reformatted the SD and popped it in, and to my relief the confirming message came up.

Important to make sure that the batteries are fully charged. In the previous instructions given by Pentax, if they were to fail during the installation, tough luck - no guarantee applies and you have to send it back to Pentax for repair. :shock:

Mind you, those instructions applied to the *ist D, so it may not be so drastic if things went wrong with the *ist D S.

By the way, why *ist DS ?Couldn't Pentax come up with a better name?!" :idea:

I am sorry to disagree. The firmware v 1.11 is for the D, not the DS. (actually, the D is now up to 1.12) The DS is v. 1.01

*ist DS firmware v. 1.01:
