Now that you guys are saying that some cameras have it, it would have been great if that standard could have been continued to be used to all cameras. I wonder why it was discontinued by most manufacturers.
Because they can sell remotes

I guess you're right Giklab. However, they'll never get anything from me when it comes to remote and cable release. I bought mine on eBay at a much lower price. I can't recall how much I paid for my cable release but, I do remember paying $1.00 for my remote.

Electronics rules! Electronics also takes up less camera space and reduces assembly and manufacturing costs. Who'd want, or perhaps even understand, an old fashioned mechanical device that didn't require batteries?

I wouldn't mind so much if those silly IR receptors designed for 'selfies' were more effective under all shooting conditions.

Jim Johnson wrote a DIY article on making a wired remote from an IR remote.

I was doing street photography in Montreal's downtown and came accross a horde of Canikon users with their L lenses (I think they were migrating), they were carrying more gears then I can fit in my DTS's trunk. They all looked ready for a photographer beauty pageant with their immaculate attires and equipments, they probably thought I was somekind of beggar when I passed by :-/

That's when I like showing off my DA21 pancake. Fah! I don't need some half-meter-long zoom! Smile for the cute little lens, everyone!

And what would have been the reaction from you if it was a group of people with K1, 24-70, 70-200 and 150-450 for lenses? This would be as bulky and expensive than Canon...

I don't see any reason to think people with high end Canon or Nikon or Pentax or whatever are to be any different.

I would be bewildered at this rare sight, to see a group of Pentax users would be like seeing tasmanian wolves.

OTOH, I hope we have a better sense of humour than the "opposition"

No issue with that from me, this is just I don't feel the need to downside others on their brand choice or display

I just wonder why we need to justify ourselves to the point we fill the need to trash people that made different choices if we are satified with what we are using?

We do have to wonder, Nicolas. We also get non/former Pentax shooters like Jsherman, Osv and Neostyles (who are what Rupert calls 'jumpers') posting to this forum, trashing people's choices.

Jay generally doesn't trash us or Pentax. He still likes the gear. He has simply become convinced APSc can't do for him what FF can. I would not be at all surprised to see Jay rent or buy a K-1.

The other two have something else going on. Mirrors or video or something else from the dark side - real anger and derision.

Sorry if I gave that impression. I was a Canikon until recently so I was just having fun, that is all. I honestly don't care about brands, as long as I can do pictures
