I misunderstood and thought that you could set it and walk away.... Thanks for reassuring me that it at least works as designed. The setting of the mode to continuous is helpful!

While searching, I found something that describes using the wireless remote and CIF. The post said that it would not work with a manual lens, but I was using a manual Pentax M 50mm lens and it seems to work fine. At least you don't have to hold down the shutter release.....I did not test to see how long one could wait, but it seemed to work with some quick tests, walking into the focus area, the camera would fire unattended. You could then press and release the remote to set it up for the next shot. This is kind of what I was looking for.......

Metering might pose a problem because you are using an M lens. You will need to guess the exposure
