Ok, thank you all.
I may try Eye-fi, even if it's quite expensive...

Zebooka > Indeed, I wanted to control the camera from PC...
You say that just a few of cameras are able to do that... Will the K-x be able too ?
None of Pentax's low end cameras have ever been controllable from the PC. Only the *istD, K10D, and K20D. Even the K7 does not have this feature. It doesn't seem like a feature most users are looking for.

This program claims to allow PC control of your K-x via the USB, though its still in Beta

Hum... Under Windows Seven, it seems to not work... My computer doesn't recognize my camera

I continue by trial and improvement.

It works for some people - though I myself haven' tried. Might depend on your operating system. Here is a timelapse shot with a Kx tethered to a laptop

I've read again the whole subject, and the problem that comes first is that I can't plug my K-x to my computer... This one doesn't recognize it (even in MSC).

I shot 70 pics in RAW on my K-x and now the SD card is not even recognized in a Win7 laptop. The laptop pings up when the 32GB SD card is inserted but the pings down 1 second later. Looking into storage management shows no SD card. I have a 2nd 2GB SD card formatted in my 2nd K-x and that one is recognized just fine, but alas has only 1 image on it. My linux laptop sees the 32GB as a card and sees multiple images on it but all the RAW images are blank in Rawtherapee and darkroom. Rawtherapee sees the 3 jpg pics on the drive but crashes when I try and load a RAW. Darkroom just sees them as blank or dark gray pics but shows the EXIF data and are about 12Mb in size each. I was able to generate thumbnails somehow but none can be viewed full resolution.
