Remote control D


Will " Pentax remote control D " work with k-r or k-5 ?

Can anyone confirm that?

Haven't heard of a remote control D, but there is a remote control F and yes, it works with both. Remote mode is enabled via the drive menu.

This is remote control D i am talking about. I bought it for $15, since i needed it the same day, it is not a good buy because i could have bought one for $5 over ebay as i was planing to do so for months when it became too late.
Its mint condition from 1998 . And it works. It is just "designed" for older cameras..

That's why I asked the question so I wouldn't have to meet up with the guy for nothing. However, it does work. It is just an older model from times when k-5 or k-r didn't exist.

Since brand new generic IR remotes are compatible with Pentax's entire line, I would be very surprised if a discontinued Pentax branded IR remote didn't also work with Pentax's entire line, old to new ... at least in terms of releasing the shutter.
