Burst Mode Does Not Work On Pentax KS2

This is an answer for anyone like me who is new to the Pentax KS2, made some changes and can't figure out why their camera is no longer shooting in burst mode.

I realized that by turning off the Clarity filter (I think that's what it is called) I could resume taking burst shots of 5 in rapid succession.

I guess that Clarity filter really slows the camera down to the point where you can't use the Burst feature.

I had made numerous changes to the settings including using the Back button to Auto-focus, a feature I love. I could not, for the life of me, remember all the changes I made, so I simply suffered until I finally got the courage to try changing feature for feature until I found the problem.

Indeed, because the camera needs several seconds to process each frame with the special effect.

In case you get caught off-guard, having lens corrections enabled will also increase the amount of time the camera needs to save your images, and it may lock up instead of giving you control shortly after a burst.
