interval shooting and bracketing and HDR

hi there fellow pentaxians !
i have a K5
i've been trying to make a timelapse of the full moon rising and i noticed i cant interval shoot and exposure bracket at the same time .
would love to have a well exposed moon as well as the clouds passing by
does anyone have any ideas on how i could make HDR sequence of photos with this camera?
love to hear your ideas thanks!

With the K1 you can combine interval shooting with the HDR in-camera feature. Perhaps the K5 can do the same ?

I do not think that you can do that with K-5.


Is it possible to combine HDR with interval shooting for K-1? I have found no way how to do that for KP.


I would buy a programmable cable remote like:


Timer Remote Shutter Cord for Pentax K-70 - JJC

and use it in a mode when a sigle press does several HDR shots.

My mistake - you can take HDR with interval shooting. I have just tried it on KP. Anyway, I do not think that this will help for K-5 as this camera does not support HDR RAW (if I remember well ... ).

I think the OP was talking about the K5.

In any case, the easiest way (assuming the camera can't do both simultaneously like the K-1) is to use a remote which incorporates interval timing and then set the K5 to HDR or bracket mode so each shot will capture a bracketed set of shots.

ravara, any chance you're good with electronics? There's a way to do this with an Arduino controller to use it with the IR remote function of a camera if the K5 has that. You can make a neat little controller which has interval capability but it takes a fair amount of electronic knowledge and some Arduino programming skills.

The face of the full moon has fairly uniform brightness. Shoot in manual mode and expose for that (~14 EV100*). As noted above, the easiest way to combine bracket and interval timing is with a wired intervalometer...works like a charm, but be sure to test your configuration before trying it at night.

* That translates to 1/125s @ f/11 with ISO 100. The rule is called "lunny 11" due to it working the same as "sunny 16".

well Bob, i do love to make/build my own solutions and i might just investigate how to do this.
sounds like a cool project to encase with a 3D printed design of my own, i'm not very good with electronics but i do know product design
if i do decide to go for it i'll check on you for pointers and post the whole process here @pentaxforums
thanks for the idea
