Pentax K-7 Remote control

Hi All.

I want to control my K-7's shutter and be able to make camera settings using a laptop OS Windows XP SP3 remotely.

Thanks
Brian Coff

Right now the only solution is a free third-party program called PKTether. See this thread:

You can download the tethering software here:

Please keep in mind that PKTether uses an USB connection, and the USB standard specifies a max. cable length of 2 m.

I run devices on one of my desktop computers with 3.5 m cable length, but the connection is not very reliable.
