Default K10D remote

Does anyone use a remote with the K10D? If so, is it wired or wireless? I am very interested in trying this, but have not found anyone using it. Thanks!

Angela

Default K10D Remote

I use a wireless remote with my K10D, works quite well.

Kyle, could you tell me where you got it? I have made inquiries other places and I have been told there isn't a wireless for the K10D.

Default K10D Remote

Well, I didn't actually buy mine, it was given to me by the Rep. But they are available quite a few places on-line, as well as some after market versions. Here is the link to the Pentax site where it shows Pentax's OEM version: Pentax Remote F. If you buy the actual Pentax remote it has a place in the K10D's optional battery grip to store it when not in use. I did have one of the after market versions at one time but it didn't work as well and went through batteries like crazy, it was one day while I was trying to get the after-market one to work that the Pentax rep handed me a brand new original one and said "It's yours, now throw that other one away".

Thanks, I will check the Pentax site. I have the battery grip so the remote already has a home. It's great to find another K10D user, it seems that everyone I know is using Canon or Nikon.

Count another K10D user Angela... You can get the Pentax Remote F for the K10D at B&H...

Pentax Remote Control F

It's about the size of a doubled over stick of chewing gum and runs about $20 (plus S&H)

The nice thing about the K10D is that there are two IR sensors for the remotes, both front and rear. Makes those slow shutter speed tripod shots real easy.
