locking the mirror on a Pentax K20

How do you lock up the mirror on the K20 ? I've tried wading through the CD disc without success. Thanks.

Using the 2-second timer will lock up the mirror before the exposure starts - not sure about any other modes as I don't own a K20 but I do know it does not have an option for locking up the mirror.

Download the manual from Operation Manuals Download : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING ; easier to search for stuff And there is indeed only the 2 second timer for mirror up during shooting (and sensor cleaning also flips the mirror up, but I assume that you're not looking for that )

If you have a smartphone, I assume that you can load the manual on there and always have it at hand (assuming that you carry it with you). Most people carry their smart phones with them all the time (I don't as I don't have one).
