K3ii pixel shift v.s studio flash

Just wondering how the K3ii pixel shift mode would handle something like studio product photography when flash is involved.

It sounds generally like the mirror goes up and several images are taken very quickly.
What if you need flash? Is there a mode to manually trigger each image taken so that flash has time to recycle and fire properly?

Yes, using an electronic shutter. The mechanical shutter stays fully open the entire time.

You are out of luck. The following camera functions are incompatible with and/or unavailable when using Pixel Shift (K-3II manual p 87):
  • Flash
  • Continuous shooting
  • Exposure bracketing
  • Multi-exposure
  • Interval shooting
  • Interval composite
  • Interval movie
  • HDR capture
  • AA Filter simulation

No. I would suggest that a constant lighting option (LED bar?) would a workaround, either that or another form of ultra-resolution exposure.
