[k-x]How to enable shake reduction in video mode with manual lens?

I know there is some trick to doing it, like the order you do it in, but for the life of me I can't figure it out, since I have not tried to use it for so long.

K-x
Manual Lens

It didn't ask for the focal length when it started up, I imagine that has something to do with not being able to enable shake reduction for video?

Hit the menu button. On the third page of settings, the first entry is "movie". Click on that. Inside that tab, the last line allows you to turn on/off the shake reduction.

Can't say for sure why it didn't ask for the focal length on startup. If you already tried the above steps, maybe that does have something to do with it?

If Shake Reduction isn't already enabled, the camera doesn't ask for focal length at startup. It only wants to know focal length so it can calibrate SR. Once SR is enabled, turn the camera off and back on and it should ask for a focal length.

When using my auto lens, I have enable it in both locations, unfortunately it then disables and grays out once I put on the manual lens. Further it does not allow me to put in a focal length, perhaps it is not registering that I have a lens attached?

If there was no lens attached, it would still ask for a focal length.

Either the K-x doesn't behave in the same way as my K-7 in this case (which is possible), or you have some setting enabled in your camera that's auto-disabling SR. For example, 2-second delay drive mode will turn off SR. There are many examples, I forget what they all are, they're listed in your K-x manual.

I had to set the Allow Aperature Ring to Permitted, found in Custom Settings menu 4.
