ShutterCount app now supports Pentax cameras as well


The guys behind the ShutterCount app contacted me to inform that their app now also supports Pentax cameras:

Nikon and Pentax cameras do not store the owner’s name. So the display changes to “Artist Name”. But other that this, the app behaves exactly as is does for USB or Wi-Fi connected Canons.

List of supported Pentax cameras: Pentax *ist DL, *ist DL2, 645D, 645Z, K-1, K-3, K-3 II, K-5, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-7, K-30, K-50, K-70, K-500, K-m, K-r, K-S1, K-S2, K-x, K10D, K20D, K100D, K100D Super, K200D, K2000, KP via image files.

More information is available here.

    Isn’t the photographers copywrite info configurable in the Pentax menus?

      You can tap in the photographer and the copy right holder

    When the major news is a third-party shutter counter app, minor firmware update or some random fake news that provoked official denial, it means an incredibly dull year for Ricoh so far.

      Forgetting about the KP?

      • ZMWT

        The KP is the K5 in new clothes; the fps and buffer depth is same as in a 7-yr old camera. It is not even the K3 league. Ricoh have not shed one drop of sweat to make the KP, so I am still waiting some real news.

          Nonsense it is a K-3 in a new body. Does a K-5 have 24mp or pixelshift resolution or mechanical moire reduction or SAFOX 11 AF? fps or buffer depth say nothing about age. The KP is not meant for sports shooting.

            KP is K5 in new clothes. A grandpa’s camera basically. By its capabilities and design approach, the KP is nothing more than the K5 in its time. Same fps, same buffer, same old U/I speed. A basic DSLR now with retro looks. And that is 7 years after the K5! The K5, K5II, K50, KS1, KS2, K70, KP — all the same basic tech, same iteration of the boring same. Just repacked differently.
            Yet, even Leica kept the same package, BUT, upgraded insides of their entry level camera to be an order of magnitude better than the camera of only 3 years ago, with better and much faster in every detail, so that it can be used in more situations that the previous model.
            I guess Pentax is incapable of that. They must issue at least 6-10 DSLRs, all crippled this way or other, so that the last model, 7-8 years later, could be usable in more than one situation when compared to best of peers?
            That is why I wrote: I still wait for real news.
