Thank you for your reply.
I have a Super Takumar 50/1.4 (M42) lens with M42 to PK adapter. The method you've described does not work with M42 lenses because k01 camera cannot read the aperture setting, that and/or the pressure plate from the electrical lens connection stops it from being fully manual.
Glealisla, do you have a m42 lens?
Have you tried filming with m42 to PK adapter?
Thank you.

Unfortunately I do not, however from what you are indicating it seems you may need another lens for your video purposes

The problem with filming in manual is that it continues to adjust the exposure. ]
Not if you press the AE-L straight after pressing the red button it doesn't.
It's the method I've used on several occasions where I didn't have my camcorder to hand.
