ah ha! I got a legitimate work around! 2 second delay after shutter button. is pressed it takes a picture with shake reduction on!

use 'interval shooting' mode. set it to 2 exposures total, two seconds apart.

so, here is what happens,
1. press the shutter button.
2. takes a picture.
3. hold camera steady with your hand
4. two seconds later a picture is taken with shake reduction on automatically
5. delete first picture.

downside is it takes twice as many pictures, but i got what was most important to me. that is: after I press the shutter, the camera gives me two seconds to steady my hands, and then automatically takes a picture.

to me, the 'shutter bounce' that happens when you take a picture is very severe. no matter how careful i am. I dunno, maybe it's just me.

I just always thought the whole purpose of the two second delay was to eliminate shutter bounce. I am still amazed Pentax turns off all shake reduction with the two second timer because they assume you are using a tripod. why have any delay on a tripod at all?

i may have jumped the gun disliking it, the shake reduction seems to do it's job after i got used to it.

i have always used the 2 second timer on all my cameras to negate the 'bounce' of hitting the shutter button. press the button, wait two seconds while holding my hand as still as possible and then the picture is taken.
i just bought the k70. i took a picture with SR on, and then one with the 2 second delay. the 2 second delay looks better (both taken with my hand no tripod). I think it would look even better if i had the two second delay AND SR.
SR does not compensate for the button as much as waiting two seconds.
totally bummed out now.
and yes, I did hold the button in 1/2 for several seconds to make sure SR was in fact kicking in.
is there any kind of hack or custom firware i can use the SR and the 2 second delay?
what is the purpose of the 2 second time delay other than to negate the bounce of hitting the button?
why not allow SR with the delay.
you said because delay is usually used with a tripod so SR is not necessay.
agreed.
after having this camera for less than a day SR alone is not enough to overcome the button, at least for my hands.
SR was one of the biggest reasons i bought this camera and it looks like it will be disabled not by me but by the manufacturers.
sorry for the vent, maybe someone important will see it and take pity and help me.
thanks for the ear and your earlier responses.

why can't we have timer and shake reduction? I want timer and shake reduction! the timer allows me to negate the shake from pressing the button. I still want SR. it's still in my hand. why are they taking away this choice?
