Remote or SD card?

When taking shots with my macro am I able to fire my K3 with a remote or with the Pentax SD card and my phone so I don't disturb the camera during the shot? Or will either one work?

I don't have it but that is what the FLU card is for so yes it should work.

I do have both wired and IR remotes and use them and that also works fine.

Hope that answers your question.

I'm not sure about the SD card, but the remote (including the aftermarket one) works well.

Either one will work. Unless you also need remote live view and settings control, the remote control would be sufficient. Here's an overview of how the flucard works:
