Looks like a NEW IR Remote next to the K-5..potential tethering solution?



That is a very different and more advanced looking remote right there next to the body. I wonder if it is related to the previously alluded to irSimple system or just adding a more advanced degree of remote control. If settings can be controlled with that beastie while sending liveview to an external display that solves the tethering issue for me...

I don't believe that's actually a new remote. I think its a waterproof remote that was released for the W series of compacts

ohhhh.....man, that would be just how things go for me when I get excited about something...darn, you might be right...sigh...

EDIT: Thanks to knoxploration I looked up the remote and it is supposed to support the K-7 and other Pentax cameras which support "remote" control whatever that means...so maybe there is some hope yet. I do still love the idea of a waterproof remote, if I ever go outside again that is.

If I ever shoot in the rain, I deserve to be without a remote or an umbrella.........rain is not for me! It is cold and it is wet....two things I do not tolerate well. I do shower, but do it fast!
Regards!

I thought tethering was all about linking to a PC/Mac so the photos get loaded on a large screen and workflow applied immediately... Has the tethering mumbo jumbo been about triggering the shot all this time? I'd have thought the IR remote was perfectly adequate.

No this might be a work POTENTIAL work around solution if and ONLY IF the remote allows settings control and can be used in conjunction with on camera live view redirected via HDMI to an external display. It would need to support full overlay of control settings on the screen.

But then again you are well aware of this and feel because you don't need tethering you are going to make a snarky comment. So there you go, an answer.

2nd part of the sentence's validity was negated by the first part of the sentence being false. So then tethering does go hand-in-hand with linking to a PC/Mac and not in just activating the shutter. Ok, I didn't understand what was being conveyed in the OP. I should have stayed out.

No prob. I can see how that can be from my use of "mumbo jumbo"; I should have said "turmoil" instead.

hehehehe...thanks so much, I did feel awful about being a nasty gram sorta guy once I reread your comment. We should have had FUN with it because, you are right it is "mumbo jumbo!!!". It's very kind of you to accept the apology...I genuinely mean that.
