Question: HDR bracketing on the K1?

Quick question brothers; how do I set up auto-bracketing on the Pentax K1?

I'd like to be able to set a self timer and have the camera take all the bracketed shots automatically without having to press the shutter for each shot.

Press the "Menu" button. Press the right direction button several times or use the rear control dial to get to menu "C 2". Go down to item 12, "One-Push Bracketing" and turn it on.

As an alternative to One-Push Bracketing, one should be able to simply hold the shutter release down in Bracket Mode for continuous drive and use a momentary push for single exposure. Of course this is not easy to do with the self-timer. In which case my suggestion is to create a user mode that includes one-push bracketing. The reason why I am not so much in favor is that I used to have my camera set to one-push and it was a pain in the rear to not have the ready option of single push.

I would imagine catch-in-focus might also work, depending on what you're trying to do (HDR selfie?)
