Remote trigger from behind

If you would like to trigger your K-01 from behind, there is a simple solution. . . . . . . if you have large amounts of camera junk in the basement like I do.

Here's what you need:

- old folding flash
- makeshift mounting hub
- #12 or heavier electric wire
- cheap glue clamp

Clamp the reflector to the tripod - bend the wire to the correct position - fire away
