Simultaneous shutter fire, Pentax Q?

Howdy all!

Question for those of you with q knowledge. If you had a 2 Pentax Q's set to trip via remote - could you use the same remote to fire both cameras simultaneously?

Both cameras would be within a foot of each other.

Also, I just assumed it has a remote feature. Is that true?

I've just tried and this works fine. Test done with the IR remote.

Yes, the IR remote will trigger both cameras as long as both are within its field of view.

No idea! At the moment it's uncertain if there will be a new camera, but I think there will eventually. Pentax just has to come up with something exciting.
