K-01 Continuous Shooting "Hi" mode Greyed Out...

Why would this be, It won't let me choose the "Hi" mode, the "Lo" mode was the only one available???

That is in RAW.

You can still shoot 3 RAW images at the 6fps mode when you select the bracketing-mode.

Yes, for some reason that we don't know (buffer? firmware?) the camera only allows burst mode HI in jpeg mode. Burst mode LO or bracketing with minimal exposure differences are your best chances.

Thanks for your help. This was the first time I used my K-01 on my long wildlife lens and I usually enable the hi mode to increase my chances of not missing the action if something happens so I was surprised to see it not available.
