Bracketing with IR remote K-30

Does anyone have any experience with bracketing using the IR remote on the K-30 yet? I know the K-5 does offer this option. I really thought the K-30 would too, but I can't seem to figure it out. After reading other posts concerning this subject I see that the K-X could only do one shot using the IR remote or a 3 second delay. I'm hoping there is a work around on the K-30. Why would they put it in the 2 year old K-5, but NOT the K-30?!

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Positioning. Most advance features reserved for top line, better than class in the entry and mid point offering. Not being aware of all the other products out there... Does D5100 offer remote bracketing?

There seem to be a few capabilities that were not included in the K-30 to keep it at a certain level I guess.

Looks like you found one of them.

The K-5 has a specific setting in the bracket menu for ir remote. This setting is not shown in the K-30 manual.

Yep.. That's what I thinking too. My friend showed me the exact screen on his K-5. I did not have that option. Also his K-20 will do it. This really p*sses me off that they did not include that. Maybe a firmware update? Other than this naggin issue I love the K-30.

They would not add it via a firmware update.

Even if the camera could do it, they would not want to give it features of the next class of product.

If that feature is that important to you you will need to go to the next model, K-5 or whatever follows.

I'm not sure what the return policy is at the dealer I purchased the K-30 from. My intention all year was to get the K-5, but when the K30 came out I was pretty impressed with it's feature set. (Some of which out performs the K-5). So to leave out something as simple as remote bracketing is a disappointment to say the least.
