Frame per seconds - K30

I recently noticed that the camera seems to shoot faster while in live view mode as opposed to not, and I can only assume this is because of mirror being locked up out of the way. Is there a menu item that locks up the mirror for rapid fire to maximize FPS?

It can do 6FPS in both live view and though the viewfinder. Things might sound faster in live view, but I can assure you that you'll get the same framerate

Adam is right. In fact, I was a bit disappointed to find out that while the mirror goes up once you are in live view, it cycles every shot when shooting continuously. Quite a racket whether going VF or live view. Glad I have the K-01 when I want a quiet shutter (albeit shooting very slowly in RAW). For two cameras with very similar basics (sensor and processor) they have very different strengths both in still and video use.
