Shake Reduction won't turn on.

The shake reduction says it's off and I cannot access/activate the SR via the control panel or the Rec Mode 3. On both screens the SR line is not illuminated and cannot be accessed.
Am I missing something here or is there a problem with my K-30? Still using firmware v1.02.
Thanks.

Check to see what drive mode you have it on. The SR is inoperative if you have it set to timer or remote control.

Are you set for remote use or timed shots? Both of those disable the SR since it assumes you're using a tripod or other stable mount for the camera eliminating the need for SR to begin with.

SR on K30

Okay. I finally figured it out from the previous K5 discussions on this. Don't know how the drive mode got changed.

Thanks for your responses. This is probably the kind of things that happens when you don't take enough pictures and when you do you use different cameras.

The Shake Reduction function is not available in the following situations:
- Self-timer shooting - Remote Control shooting
- when p mode is set
- when HDR Capture is set, and the Auto Align function is disabled
- during Composition Adjustment

P mode? Are you sure about that?

I think he meant "B" as in Bulb mode. SR is disabled when mode dial is switched to B.


SR is also disabled in M.UP (mirror lockup) but K-30 doesn't have this function.

Steve is right. I am sorry, I copied from the downloaded Manual but I did not check back when pasted in here, I do not know why B became p.
