Can Someone Please Tell Me What the Heck This Is?

It is genuine Pentax, made in Japan. One end is like a shutter button but I have no clue what the other connects to.

It came in a big bag of stuff that included an ME Super, but nothing seems to fit the other end of this strange thing.

Looks like a shutter release to me.

That is the remote shutter switch for the ME Winder II. It might work on other winders too.

However, someone has made a modification to enable an extension. The mini-plug is not a Pentax OEM feature.

Go to "remote control operation" images 23 and 24.

Thanks, both of you!

I have an ME and ME II Winder somewhere, we'll see if you're right.

*Edit* Ah, okay, I see it now. Thanks again!

I guarantee I am right. I am a Pentaxian.
