Which remote cables can be used?
Posted By: Ole, 09-07-2006, 09:21 PM

The more recent Pentax cameras do not accept the classic threaded cable releases.

They instead accept an infrared remote (Remote Control F) and/or a dedicated cable release as listed below:


DSLR:
  • K20D, K10D, K200D, K100D, K110D, *istD, *istDS, *istDS2, *istDL, *istDL2
    • Cable Switch CS-205
    • Remote Confrol F
  • K2000/K-m
    • Remote Confrol F
Film SLR:
  • *ist
    • Cable Switch CS-205
  • MZ-S
    • Cable Switch CS-105
    • Cable Switch CS-130
    • Release Timer Switch TS-110
  • ZX-5N/MZ-5N, ZX-5/MZ-5, Z-70/PZ-70, Z-20/PZ-20, Z-10/PZ-10, Z-1/PZ-1, Z-1P/PZ-1P
    • Cable Switch F
  • SFXN/SF1N, SFX/SF1, SF7/SF10
    • Cable Switch F

Coming back to Pentax after a long hiatus, I was looking at getting a Pentax remote, or building one, and ran across this thread. Since many of the links in this thread do not appear to work anymore, I'd thought I would refresh it with this DIY page I just came across:

www.doc-diy.net :: camera remote release pinout list

This page indicates that Pentax remotes use the same pinout as Canon, which would imply that any Canon wired remote would work with the Pentax.
