Pentax Remote Shutter Release Compatible with Canon T5i?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question... but here goes.


I have a couple of wired remote shutter releases (one Pentax, one 3rd party)... and a couple of IR remote shutter releases. All work fine on my K-5 and K-3.


I have a friend with a Canon T5i who will be coming to town and I want to teach him about long exposures and shooting at night.


Will my remote shutters (cable or IR) work on his Canon? Or will we have to make a trip to the camera store after he gets here?

The pentax remote control f is for pentax cameras only. The cable might work if it's generic- not 100% sure.

I have the Canon RS60-E3 cable remote (used for the Rebel/60D/Powershot series) and it works 100% with my K-5/II. So your Pentax wired remote should be fine with your friend's Rebel.
