Flash Help

So I just ordered the Yongnuo 560 Mark III for my K-5, and I was trying to find what trigger I would need for external usage. I don't have much left on the debit card but I received an Ebay card for Christmas and was hoping to use something there. Does anyone know what exactly I would need so I don't fry my camera or have a useless flash?

YONGNUO RF-603 II C1 Wireless Flash Trigger For Canon Pentax Samsung DSLR Camera

I have just ordered these. You can get 2 for the princely sum of $46.99 Au on ebay. I would not worry too much about frying your camera with the Yongnuo 560 Mark III. I have been using 2 of them on K-7 and K-5 IIs with no ill effects. Still it is good to have triggers for flash off camera.

The YN560-III supports (manual) remote power control via radio, but not with the RF-603 (which would solely be a trigger on a Pentax camera).

I'd look at the YN560-Tx as an on-camera trigger, in particular, if you are thinking about getting more (Yongnuo-) flashes in the future.

I have the TX and three 560-IIIs. But yours should be able to slave off your built-in flash, if you prefer, but I've not tried it.
