It doesn't matter which version of receiver you get; all RF-602 receivers are the same.

Transmitters, on the other hand, have some differences. Have a look at this post to help you work out which transmitter you have. It doesn't really matter either, since both Canon and Nikon versions seem to have some issues with full sync at 1/180th on Pentax unless you use some sort of half-press method, or mod the transmitter.

Personally, if I was getting any new RF-602 transmitters, I'll be getting the Nikon version and doing the resistor mod as suggested by adr1an.

Many thanks......looks like I have the cannon version but will read the posts more and see which way I should go. I gotta say I have reliable sync at nice to push it to 180 .....
