5.0 out of 5 stars Very compact
This is a fantastic little item, only a few centimetres long and a few millimetres thick. Unlike some other third-party camera remotes, it isn't cluttered with lots of unnecessary buttons for other makes of camera. It has one button which, on my Pentax K-X, can be used to release the shutter immediately or after a 3-second delay, both with or without autofocussing...

This is a fantastic little item, only a few centimetres long and a few millimetres thick. Unlike some other third-party camera remotes, it isn't cluttered with lots of unnecessary buttons for other makes of camera. It has one button which, on my Pentax K-X, can be used to release the shutter immediately or after a 3-second delay, both with or without autofocussing before releasing the shutter (actions are configurable within the camera menus). The lithium cell is easily replaceable. Delivery by CameraMarket UK was very prompt. Excellent.

Excellent product and a good price compared to the Pentax original which costs at least £25. This product was only £9 and that included postage.

I was pleased to find it works with the Pentax K-r camera. Unfortunatley the K-r doesn't have a jack plug input so you need an infra-red remote like this to act instead of a cable release.

I was really impressed with this product. I was amazed at how small and compact it is. I have used it a couple of times already and found it works perfectly. It is no reflection on the product itself, but the Pentax K-M manual is a little wooly about the use of a remote shutter release and so, bearing this in mind, perhaps some 'camera-specific' set-up information on the use of the remote shutter release could be provided with the product.

A very handy gadget which is small enough to be held and hidden in the hand when you wish to include yourself in the photograph. Sold at a very competitive price for the budget conscious and does not need to be sent to Pentax for a battery change. Recommend this product 100%

5 stars because it performs quite well with my Pentax K5.
No need to configure anything. Just select the option on the camera and it works immediatelly.
Recommended.

I love this little thing, it works as it should do, so I say if you're after a remote control for your Pentax K30 or K5 then get yourself this one, don't bother wasting your money paying £20 odd for a proper Pentax one.

Using this with a Pentax K-r. Works perfectly, haven't tried it at long distances yet though. Feels kind of cheap I suppose, not that it really matters for a remote control!

Ordered this item on the 5th May and received it on the 6th!!! Excellent little product with good range and power and Pentax dedicated so there's just one button. Easily sourced lithium cell 3v. Great and simple.

I was not sure whether to buy this or not, as my camera was not listed(PENTAX X-5 bridge camera). I got in touch with the seller, who said it should work and if not I could return it. It works a treat, and so small and light it takes up no room in your bag. Buy one, you wont be regret it...

I have just received my little remote today. Set it up immediately and this was easy and I immediately started taking pictures with my remote. I love this item. I hope it keeps performing as well as it has been doing on its first try out at home. Will make life easier for me as I am not that steady but love taking photographs. For the price I think this product is marvellous. Well worth a buy.
