Battery Grip Pentax K30

I played Nikola Tesla (edison better - he was stealing patents), I successfully played, the flow of events: bought on ebay battery grip for nikon D60/D3000 with Power EN-EL9a batteries, and battery sizes are 99% the same as the Pentax D- LI 109, the processed / custom battery grip serves only to supply tj.pruža great mobility action (maybe later Install and wirelessly trigger), the unit standard pali on the body and duly recognizes batteries and their current "capacity / power", duly registered emptying batteries (original or replacement Lithium-Ion) can work with one or two batteries,
-Of the tools I used a micro screwdriver from the Bauhaus, skalper, soldering, school scissors, all repromaterijalje from original-nothing is supplemented with side as a new part (except for the bottom Rotring empty plastic bottle of red shower that took place of the original adapter just to shut the resulting hole and make room for the newly builtin piece of cable,
Pentax-K30 has a small mobile gumiju on its flu on the socket for external / external power, this gumija undress and spreni the grip apparatus (original) and passes through the slot created this little piece of wire that connects the battery grip with adapter
Adapter battery for nikon has 3 contacts with different spacing and it was necessary to revise the distance as a Pentax Battery Grip and body and the external power adapter
-Shifted a few millimeters tightening screw to match the flu center of the machine,
- "Sorry for the bad pronunciation of the English language
looks like this : O : Cool: :

I meant that it's a Penikon, not the function or the look. Sorry if you took it the wrong way because that is some awesome work there!

Great work! Someone needs to make IR capable grips for all these Pentaxes that don't have the option for a grip.

are you using pentax or Nikon batteries in the grip?
Can you show how you adjusted the pins on the grip?

yeah i dont really use a battery grip for batteries, easy to keep spares in the bag :P

Its for the shutter button / portrait shooting.

Though this would be good for time lapses.

As for the WR, that's not a problem for this grip that I made on the cable that goes into the body of the appliance is placed eraser as it is in the body that I stripped and put in a slot Batarija, this would be it, at the very flu put washers on the battery door and that's it, put IR trigger, very low cost to produce the original of such an influenza wr for K30 and for functional indeed, of course again there is that difference that should become between the lower and upper classes (except the trigger has no command the battery grip), I'd prefer someone from Pentax sees this, yeah!!!

It would be real cool if you could put together a How-To guide with pictures on exactly how you did this so others could do the same thing.

I discounted the K30 due to lack of a grip option, I like to use some old heavy glass and it balances much better with a grip and batteries down there.

Good work!
