Pentax has released a firmware update for its K20D digital SLR camera. The new version, 1.03, improves operation of the Shake Reduction (SR) function of the camera.
Pentax's in-body image stabilization technology, SR includes a built-in sensor in the camera body that identifies hand movement and compensates by moving a free-floating image sensor. This technology allows photographers to take photos at considerably slower shutter speeds, and improves the quality of photos taken in dusk or low-light situations.
K20D digital SLR camera users can download and install the firmware from Pentax's support website.
