k-30 Interval Movie Not an Available Option

I just took my brand new k-30 out of the box today, and one of the things I was excited to play around with is interval movies. But no matter what I try, that option on the menu is not available. It's grayed out. The dial mode is set to movie (the little red video camera). I've read the manual and it doesn't indicate that this should be a problem. What am I overlooking here? Do you need a kit lens (which I don't have)? Any tips would be wonderful.

Got it. I needed to set the date and time first. It was literally *just* out of the box, and I skipped that step.

A greyed out option on the menu means that it is not available in a certain setting or, as you discovered, some other menu setting is required first. Enjoy your K-30.
