View the latest post new GRD IV feature enhancing FW 2.30 available for download

I guess this is a very good news for all GRDIV owners? ;) Ricoh finally published a slightly delayed (and widely expected) GRDIV feature enhancing FW, bringing some of the GR features to now retired GRDIV. Ricoh pioneered this very customer oriented approach with GRD range and it seems they are not going to change this practice even after Ricoh Pentax merge. I believe that, aside from Leica, Ricoh is the only company doing somehting like this for their customers? I mean releasing feature enhancing FW for their obsolete models?

The firmware 2.30 can be downloaded here:

FW 2.30 introduces the following features...
The detailed information is available in a PDF document.

    1 The Fluorescent option has been removed from the white balance menu and replaced with Shade, Daylight Fl., Neut. Wht. Fl., Cool Wht. Fl., and Warm Wht. Fl. Cool Wht. Fl. offers the same white balance as the now-defunct Fluorescent option.
    2 A Multi AF/Spot AF toggle has been added to the list of Fn button pair options, for use when Multi AF or Spot AF is selected for focus mode. Note that the multi/spot AF toggle can not be used in macro mode, when the ADJ. lever is being used to activate AF or AE/AF target selection, or if AF-Cont is selected for Continuous Mode.
    3 A Very Weak vignetting option has been added to each of the Hi-Cntrast B&W, Cross Process, Positive Film, and Bleach Bypass menus.
    4 Target selection can now be activated by pressing and holding the macro button. Note that holding the macro button will not activate target selection when MF or Subj. Tracking is selected for focus mode.

Modifications and changes
    (1) The flash will now charge correctly when Auto is selected for Dynamic Range Compensation. This addresses an issue that sometimes delayed charging indefinitely.
    (2) Addressed an issue that sometimes caused horizontal lines to appear when AE bracketing was used with high-contrast black-and-white.
