1. 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 constricting after they have become accustomed to a dark environment during astrophotography.
2. Bulb Timer Function
The bulb timer function comes in handy when photographing celestial bodies or fireworks. The PENTAX K-1 allows the photographer to expand the exposure time up to 20 minutes in Bulb mode.
During slow shutter speeds the PENTAX K-1 features white dot noise reduction processsing.*
Overall Improved stability for general performance.
* When Slow Shutter Speed NR is OFF and JPEG image.
It seems that Ricoh is reading my Blog, now there is a new version of the Image Sync, which can be updated at the Google Play, for Android only. The official website has not yet been updated, though. (Edit: The official website has just been updated and it indicates that the update is only available for Android only.)
Newly added feature on version 1.1.2
･Android 6.0.1 support
･Connection performance improved.
1.View and Copy Images
You can view images taken with your camera and copy them to your mobile device.
You can also upload them to SNS sites.
You can monitor the live view image on your mobile device. Various camera operations including EV compensation and shutter release are possible from a mobile device.
I will try and see if it improves.

It's just a Piece of Shit! The Wi-Fi function of the K-1 is virtually useless with such rubbish App and software but yet the development of the App seems halted. So, what did Ricoh want?! :-(

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! :-)
