K-50 Interval Shooting

HI All,

I was experimenting with Interval shooting and i use manual lenses and hence shoot in manual mode.

I set the Interval Shooting settings as follows:


Interval : 00:00' 04"
Number of Shots : 003 Images
Start Interval : Set Time
Start Time : 00:04

And after setting these i click OK on "Start Shooting" , and then half press Shutter button then it shows "Start" on the screen then it shows the following on the screen.

Interval Shooting
Standby

Remaining Shots 003images
Interval 00:00' 04"

It stays there in this screen. Not sure what i am doing wrong.

Really appreciate any help.

Thanks

"Start Interval" should be on "Now", not "Set Time"... the way you set it it will start 4 minutes past midnight...

I had a feeling while i was setting the "Start Time", but any way thanks a lot for the clarification.

Another thing is the interval : 4'' is good for fast shots, not long exposure, because the timer starts in the beginning of the shot. What I mean is that if you set interval in 5'' and exposure in 5'' for example, shots will be continuous, without any interval. Sorry but I am not very good with English...
