Off Camera TTL Cords

I'm have a short Off camera TTL cord for my K5 and it works fine, I'm just wanting one longer. I can find 3 metre cords on ebay, but they are for Canon and Nikon. Are the Canon cords compatible with Pentax Cameras?

As far as I am aware, they are not, as the connection type is different, however, you could get an adapter for Pentax to whatever brand you need, I.e Pentax to Canon Hot shoe converter.

I think the items that Oldbayrunner posted should do the trick, and if you don't want to spend that much, always check the used market first.

I've ordered the Opteka. Thanks for the help on this. Its a long one 75 inches., should work great with my light stand and umbrella.

With shipping I ordered the 75 inch Opteka for about $22.00 US. That will give me plenty of room to walk around my subjects and will hopefully prevent me from pulling the light stand over

75" is only 6 1/4 feet. The one I use and linked you to is 16 feet, that is plenty long.
