Shot the Colonial Williamsburg Grand Illumination fireworks last month with a K-01 and a Pentax-K24mm f2.8 lens. The neat part was that I could change the exposure using the aperture ring without having to stop the time lapse program... I think this is one of the images after photo processing..

Is there any option or tool to make the camera choose shutter speed automatically - like you push the green button?

I use mostly screw mount lenses on my -01. Use the Av mode for aperture priority auto exposure. I use the screw mount lenses in 'Manual' diaphram mode since the camera has no way to push in the stop-down pin.

I've found Pre-A K-mount to be the only trouble lenses. The camera doesn't know what aperture you have selected on them. Actually, I'm not sure I've ever mounted an A lens.

You might want the "Using Aperture Ring" on the C-3 menu page set to '2' to allow shooting with the aperture ring off 'A'.

Right now, my K-01 shutter won't open. Ever. No live view, no exposure, so I can't go dig up my single 'A' lens to even try it. Trying to decide what I want to do about that condition...
