K-S1 Anachronistic remote trigger

Hello


Combining exposure bracketing with any kind of remotely controlled shooting is impossible.


Annoying?


I found a working solution - and I'm still laughing about myself ......


P.S. Pictures taken with Pentax Optio 750Z

Does this model not have an electric shutter release port?

If it did, an electric remote control could replace your contraption and you could even trigger it from far away using a radio trigger like the Cactus V5 or V6 with a respective cable between receiver and camera.

The K-S1/S2 follow the K-m/x/r/01 legacy and lack a wired port. They have an IR sensor on the front, but you can't select IR remote mode AND bracketing at the same time (I believe you can on the K-7/5/3, not sure on the K-30/50/500).

Thanks. I guess omitting the port can probably be justified for some models, but these should then really be able to combine IR remote release with any shooting mode. Seems odd to not to account for the loss of the electrical port by respective software changes.

Agreed. I've got the parts to put a cheap IR remote on a cord, so that I could use a radio trigger with my IR-only bodies, but whenever I think about actually getting out the tools, the one-mode-only issue makes me think it's not worth the effort and I find something else to do.
