Wired remote and SR

Hi,


Does anyone know if when using a wired remote, does the camera auto-disable SR like it does when either the shutter delay or infrared remote modes are selected?

The camera behaves as if the shutter button is being pressed. The nicer wired remotes also support half-press. I use the Bower RCLC1R from Adorama which is essentially the same as many similar-appearing units with other labeling.

Bower LCD Timer and Remote Shutter Release (Model RCLC1R) reviews - Pentax Camera Accessory Review Database

The above review details the pluses and minuses.

Under "Using the Shake Reduction Function" in my K-5IIS manual it states that "The Shake Reduction function will not fully work when shooting with a very slow shutter speed, for example when panning or shooting night scenes. In this case, it is recommended to turn off the shake reduction feature and use the camera with a tripod."

Under "Bulb Mode" in the manual, it does state that SR is not useable when in Bulb mode.

The manual I am referring to is the K5/K5IIS manual, pages 101 and 122.

Glad you brought this up. It was bulb mode that I was specifically thinking about

I thought that was most likely what you were referring to, since you had mentioned the cable switch (wired remote). I have a Vello cable switch. I use it with my K-5IIS and K-3II. Its formal name is "Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch". It does not require a battery since it derives its power from the camera through the cable.
