Using wired remotes

Bought some wired remotes. I don't see any place to plug them in. Have all 6-12 mp Pentax dslr's. Can I use them or did I buy the wrong things?

Thanks

Which models do you have? The K-x & K-r only use IR.

The K-x and K-m/2000 do not use wired remotes, only IR remotes. Don't know about the ist but my guess is that its in the same line (entry level) and therefore does not either.

The k200d needs adapters on the hot shoe and base of the flash, it gets very cumbersome and expensive! You might want to go with wireless triggers.

He is referring to wired shutter releases I believe.

O/k, the plug for the shutter release is under the little door on the left side of the camera, I have a wired and wireless type and both work well.
