Shake reduction

Help! I have a k30, and I can't seem to activate the shake reduction. I shut the camera off, attach a manual focus zoom lens,
adjust the focal length setting, but the shake reduction doesn't come on. What am I doing?

Bob.

It comes on when you 'half press' the shutter button. You will see a little green hand in the viewfinder.

SR can be disabled via the info screen- make sure it's enabled.

Adam, I tried that, but the SR is not highlighted in the info screen or the menu. Also, when I change manual zooms,
the camera doesn't prompt me to set the focal length. What am I missing?

Check the drive mode. If it is for timer, SR is disabled.

Either mirror lock up or self timer will inactivate the SR. Not sure if either of those is on.
