timer and mirror pre-release

How can I use the timer in connection with the MUP funktion?

I can't find a way to select both functions together.

thanks for your help!

When you set the timer to 2 seconds, the mirror will go up right away and then the shutter will fire 2 seconds later So it's 2 in one.

No, it does not - just with the 2 second delay. I was just playing around with that last night - I still have so much to learn about my K-5!
