[Enhanced features]

* Red-lighted LCD monitor display function
The PENTAX K-1 provides a red-lighted LCD monitor display function, which prevents the pupils of the photographer’s eyes from closing down after they have become accustomed to a dark environment during astrophotography.

* Bulb timer function
The bulb timer function comes in handy when photographing celestial bodies or fireworks. The PENTAX K-1 allows the photographer to expend an exposure time up to 20 minutes in Bulb mode.


* During slow shutter speeds the PENTAX K-1 features white dot noise reduction processing. When Slow Shutter Speed NR is OFF and JPEG image.
* Overall Improved stability for general performance.

Here are the details... http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/pdf/K-1_FW1.40.pdf

These are really useful. The timed bulb mode with the Wi-Fi control via your phone (app Image Sync) is good, or a simple remote control
