KP and Remote F

Does the KP work with the older Pentax Remote F? I can't make it work, I am hoping it does.

Thanks

Jim Fellows

I have used it with new pentax bodies so I think it should work. Make sure it has batteries.

The KP doesn't have support for infra-red remote control.
You'll need to use either a CS-310 cable release, the Image Sync app on your mobile phone or the freeware WiFi Commander software on a wifi-equipped Windows PC.

As kypfer says. On these rare occasions, I just use the cable release or the self timer release. I don't have such a phone, but I imagine one advantage would be that it can work from any angle or direction, compared to an infra-red sensor.

Thanks for the info. I will either use the timer or my phone.

Thanks,

Or get the JJC wireless remote, JM-PK1 II, I don’t have it, but have thought about it if I want to do any long distance triggering.

Ooh! Thank you for the tip on the JM-PK1 II, ramseybuckeye! I'll get one of those for my KP. I've been using a JJC infrared remote for my K-S2, so I like their products.
