Wired shutter release for K5

I have a wired shutter release that I used with my PZ1p. Now would like to use it with my Pentax K5 but it has the wrong connect. Can I get an adapter so I can use with K5?

It is cheap enough to just get another one, the ones for lower end Canon bodies have the same connector and they are fully compatible with Pentax. You can find them for under $10 easily, even a fancy one with an intervalometer is under $20.

I just looked and found a wired one for 10$ and the orig. Pentax waterproof IR one for 25$ at various vendors.

Heh heh, I made my own with a few spare parts I had laying around, it works perfect.
somewhere in this forum(if you dig deep enough) are threads on how to make one.
