Pentax O-GPS1 and the Q or Q10

Hi, I have Pentax O-GPS1 GPS Unit on order coming my way hopefully before Christmas.
anyone tested it with the Q/Q10?
will that do Astrotracering on Q/Q10 , or just geotagging or nothing?
kind regards
jack

According to the Q manual;
Downloads & Literature - PENTAX Imaging USA

Doesnt look like it is compatible at all.

Also for the Q10 it is not mentioned on the spec sheet so I guess not.


Works on your K-5 & K-30 though with all functions.

Does not work. And it dosn't really fit the camera. When mounted it is impossible to press the power and shutter button.

Good point, didnt think of that.

Also, I guess it looks nearly as rediculous mounted on the Q as the AF540 flash does.

thank you people
bugger, I have the Q and I have Pentax Q2K adapter coming my way and I have O-GPS1 on order.
taking under the consideration 5.5x crop factor, I was hoping to take advantage of it and do some serious astrotracer photography with all that gear.
well, will have be happy with K-5 and its 1.5x crop factor
kind regards
