How do I enable the electronic shutter?

I'm on a phone tight now, and unable to read the manual/pdf.

The option is greyed out, and I recall there being a different option that affects it's ability.

Any ideas?

From the K-1 v1.30 firmware pdf (with some Japanese to English grammar corrections):

*The drive modes that can be used with Electronic Shutter are single frame
shooting, Self-timer shooting (12s/2s), Remote Control shooting(Immediate/3s),
Mirror up shooting and Multiple exposure.
*The Shake Reduction function is fixed to OFF.
*The HDR mode cannot be used with Electronic Shutter.

Check if HDR is enabled. If it is, you need to disable that.

Changing drive modes to single shot did it. Thanks!
