Tuning the LCD Display of the K-1

The default LCD display settings produce too bright colours and it has a blue cast. I therefore corrected it with the following settings, after checking against my carefully calibrated professional monitor, which is calibrated internally with an external colourimeter.

I checked two units of the K-1 and found that they are more or less the same and the above settings work. See if it would work for you and produce better and more accurate results! :-)

Who killed the Infinity Focus?

Good article! Btw, I found that most of my FA primes have a precise infinity hard stop at the infinity mark of the lenses when mounted on my K-1 and I am pleased.
