Remote shutter for K1

Anyone have any recommendations for a remote shutter release for the K1? the one I have for my K5 doesn't work with the K1, only trips the shutter in B mode . Its the JJC RM-E7 remote control

I use the following wired remote with my K-3 II and K-5IIS. It derives its power from the camera, so it does not require a battery of its own. I tried IR remotes, but the batteries did not hold a charge consistently. I use it to stop/start long exposures.

I have used this in my K5. K5-IIs. K3 and K1. I got two of them figuring that since they were so inexpensive I would have a backup if one failed. Still haven't opened the second one.

I have that exact remote and used it successfully this morning with my K-1 in M mode. Glad to hear that it's working for you now.

It really works well, and the price is nice.

BTW: I use the Vello wired remotes and also two models of their wireless remotes and all of them have been 100% satisfactory on K20, K5, K3 and now K1.
