Wireless Remote

I would like to get a wireless remote to use on my K20D outdoors. There are some listed on ebay from China, but I've had mixed results buying stuff from both ebay and China.

The longer the range, the better.

Any recommendations??

TIA!!

When thinking wireless remote think of whether it will pre-focus otherwise, not worth it. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

The item linked in the jodokast's post has half press button (according to description)

QuoteQuote:
A. Half-press the transmitter’s button for auto-focus (the LED on both transmitter and receiver turns green), then press it completely for taking picture (the LED turns red).
B. Bulb shutter, setting you camera to Bulb mode, and long press the transmitter’s button, bulb starts since the LED turns red, repress when the long-exposure is completed.

You're very welcome. While this isn't the cheapest one out there, it is the cheapest wireless remote (at least that I've found) that let's you lock open the shutter for long exposures.

What is being referred to is the ability to press the remote halfway and having the camera auto focus itself.

Additionally, the advantage to this type of remote is the working range is longer than the Pentax (think about not having to be close up to bees) and it works from behind, in front or beside the camera.
