JJC Remote Compatibility with the K-7

Hi all,

I've been trying to find a good remote for astrophotography that will allow programmable interval shooting in bulb mode for longer exposures than the 30" limit imposed on the K-7's built-in intervalometer.

Canon has the fully-featured TC 80N3, of course, but it's expensive and needs to be modified to work with Pentax cameras. A search for similar products led me to a couple threads on these forums talking about the JJC TM-C. It's listed as compatible with a variety of Pentax dslrs, but Pentax's newer generations of dslrs (my K-7 included) are conspicuously absent from the list.

Does anyone know if this product will work with my camera?

If it's the JCC TM-C Multi Function Remote you're talking about, then I have that, and yes, I can confirm it works on my K-7 (and my K10D and K-5 as well). If the remote has the 2.5mm stereo jack, then it should work.

Note though, if you do shoot any exposures above 30 seconds on the K-7, dark frame subtraction noise reduction will kick in...
