Anyone tried this IR Remote for PPC's?


I stumbled on this today, and was wondering if anyone has tried it with the K-5. I couldn't get it to work...


Looks cool though! Although I know Windows Mobile is well outdated, but I still have a Windows Mobile phone and would like for it to work!

Does it need to be updated for the K-5?

No update needed, since the Pentax infrared command signal for shutter release is still the same.
It even works with the K-1.

There are two other threads about "Remote Control for Pentax" (RCFP):
Windows Mobile Pentax Remote -
K-x and remote software? -

Does your Windows Mobile phone send IR? I think that might be a issue. I am not aware of many phones that actually have an IR transmitter. Or IR Blaster as they seem to be called.

It was not about windows mobile phoines but PDAs with Windows (CE).
And there are USB IrDA adapters for Windows 10.
