Another remote trigger thread/idea

So look. These things are dirt cheap:

Remote Control F for PENTAX K-M K200D K100D K20D K10D on eBay (end time 27-Dec-10 08:52:08 GMT)

As are these things

LCD Timer Remote for Pentax K100D K110D K10D K-7 R8A9 on eBay (end time 05-Dec-10 03:39:33 GMT)

Yet people have to resort to very simple but messy hacking to create something like this:

creating a programmable remote shutter release for Pentax Kx scanar

When all we really want is a cheap something like this:

Wireless Timer Remote Control For Pentax K7 K10D K20D on eBay (end time 11-Dec-10 06:09:52 GMT)

And not an extortionate thing like this:

So what gives? Come on, there's no reason there can't be a sub 25 wireless remote trigger.

I completely agree. $5 vs $150 for the added feature of a mediocre intervalometer? Absurd. I just found a system today that seems to be the best I've seen if you own an iPhone or iPod Touch. You buy a $40 IR iPhone Adapter ( L5 Remote - Turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a Universal Remote ) and a free corresponding app ( FreezeFrame for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store ) and you get a pretty solid and very easy to use intervalometer.
