K-1 AWB and SR setting on tripod

Hello,
I'm going over the settings in my K1 for a shoot, tomorrow. I consulted the manual, but didn't find it. So 1. How do I set my camera to Auto White Balance? 2. When using a tripod, do I leave SR on? Thank you very much.

Auto White Balance
Press the left button on the 4-way pad, then select AWB. If you have C20 set, press the AF point selection button first.



Always turn SR off when on a tripod.

If you're using the self-timer or the remote control trigger, SR will automatically be turned off (unless you set otherwise in C21).

Adam,
When I press the left button on the 4 way pad, it just moves the auto focus spot indicator over to the left. I'm not getting that screen.

I do use the 2 second delay, does that turn it off. That would be great.

Yes, it turns it off. This is my go-to.

I have back button focus set up. I guess I'll get this figured out. At list I know what to look for. Thank you.

Got it. Put it in LV, pressed the left button on the 4 way pad, and there it was. Sweet. Thank you.

You don't actually have to go into LV to do it. This works, but not needed. The button to press to switch out how the 4 way works is just above the 4 way. I believe it's the right most one. Don't have camera with me, so can't 100% be sure.
