Pentax Remote Control

I have a Pentax K-50 and the Pentax Remote Control F. It work very well inside. But yesterday, I went outside for fireworks. It was -1 degree C and it never worked. Back inside, it works very well.
Thanks.

I've used that remote at much colder temperatures without a problem, but I keep in my hand or in my pocket where it is getting body heat. The battery is very small and the remote is just plastic. Cold is not a friend to batteries.

My guess is that the battery is getting marginal. Not sure if you can change the battery in this remote or not...

I have the "Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch". It is a wired remote (plugs into camera), and derives its power from the camera through the cable. I have used it outside in the Winter and it has never failed. I use it with my K-3II and K-5IIS for long exposures. It is available at B and H.

The battery for the Remote Control F is the CR 1620 3V, in case you need to replace yours. I really do recommend the wired remote though, at least for colder weather.
