It works

It does what I want it to do with my K 5 and K 20 and as far as I know should work on a K 30. it has done every thing I have needed it to do but my needs are simple. The only thing I have not tried so far is dunking it.

Great idea, poorly executed....

I am a long time Pentax user. When I decided it was time to get a remote for my Pentax K-5, this version popped out at me - great price and waterproof. This seemed like a no brainer. Unfortunately, it wasn't until I already ordered it from Adorama that I learned from another retailer's description that this particular remote's battery CANNOT BE REPLACED! So it's a "one-off".

So, in the end, unless the waterproof-ness is really integral to what you do, I think the standard remote is a better deal.

it has buttons -- only one works now

By

from greater metropolitan Chicagoland  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

What's good about this item: 1. it's supposedly waterproof 2. it's easier to hold (and therefore probably more difficult to lose) than the old Remote F 3. its butons are certainly a lot easier to see than the old remote on which the button is next to invibible What's bad: 1. the documentation 2. remember Pentax's old "power zoom" for its film slr's? The middle button is for that. I pray Pentax means it's for point and shoot cameras and not for its dslr cameras - the slr camera world yawns at power zooms. 3. the bottom button is for some function that Pentax seems not to have figured out what it is, or at least it won't say. Tacky, tacky! 4. this would seem to be a srange instance in which the accessory precedes the product(s) for which it is intended.

Works, instructions are terible

By

It does everything it's supposed to do. The instructions in the packaging are terrible. You'll need to spend some time experimenting with it and your camera.

Pentax Remote Control

By

from Bigfoot Country, California  -  Semi-Professional

It's very small, lightweight, waterproof enough to use in the rain forest, probably not underwater though. Works on both K-7 and K-5. I get tack sharp images when I use the remote with a tripod.
