connect K-50 with smartphone

Hi,
I've read that there is a SD card for K-3 which allow the camera to be fully controlled from a smartphone. Is there anything similar for K-50 or any other way which can be connected?

The K-50 doesn't support the flucard, unfortunately, but you can count on it in its successor.

What do you mean its successor? (Sorry about that, my English are not very good)

Whatever camera replaces it (K-60, K-70, etc.).

Yes, I believe you are looking for an Eye-Fi card. You can set it up to automatically transfer every photo to the smartphone or just selected photos and/or folders. I received a card as a gift but honestly haven't used that feature much. I had a hard time getting the individual transfer feature to work and I assume I just don't understand the UI.

I have the Pentax MX-1 and K-500 and they both support the Eye-Fi card but info in manual is very sketchy about using it.
Just saw a YouTube video on the flu card and the K-3 and it looks pretty cool and looks like it's very very useful for teaching others how to use camera. Way more features than Eye-Fi card ,which basically just lets you transfer files from SD card over wi-fi, so you don't even have to take out sd card to transfer files to pc or connect camera to pc. Too bad Flucard only works on K-3.
