Mirror sound

I was shooting a couple of pics today, and i noticed sometimes, after i shot (3 secs later, something like that), the mirror slapped again.
Is that the famous "mirror flop"?
I dont know if everytime it did i was using liveview, but i dont think so. (i was using liveview to shoot from dificult angles)
Is that a problem? It happened like 3 times...
Thank you

It sounds like maybe the self timer feature is on (mirror up, 2 seconds, take photo). You can check it by pressing the up button while shooting to see what mode the camera is in. Hope that helps.

Doesn't sound like the K-5 mirror flop issue, which afaik doesn't affect the K-r anyway. It sounds like maybe you're leaving LV mode, as it's normal for the mirror to flip back down after that. Further than that, hard to say, sorry.
