Pentax K-S1 Timelapse

Hello Pentax Forums User

I got the Pentax K-S1 as a birthday present. And I'm looking for a method doing a timelapse but I didn't found anything for this yet.
Do you know how to do a timelapse with the Pentax K-S1 ?

Hoping for some information

The K-S1 unfortunately has a simplified set of shooting modes that does not include interval shooting. The only real option would be to use an IR remote intervalometer.

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!!!

I recommend Bitshift's DSLR Remote app for Android. It has excellent Pentax compatibility and is free:

DSLR Remote - Android Apps on Google Play

The only drawback is that having the IR sensor active for any period of time will draw the camera's battery down so long timelapse may not be possible.

The lack of wired remote, interval settings and an external power supply option were deal breakers on upgrading to the K-S1 for me.

Glad to see there is an option although I don't have a suitable device to run the apps.
