Freeware Tethering Software!

After messing around for hours trying to find my K10D original disc so I could install remote assistant I almost gave up then came across this!

PK_Tether allows connecting and controlling Pentax cameras from the PC. The list of currently supported models include: Pentax k-x, K7, K5, k-r, K20D, K10D, K200. In the program, it is possible to:
  • set camera parameters like: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, image format and others
  • remote release shutter
  • save photos directly on computers hard drive
  • periodically release shooter for time-lapse photography

Yes, PK_Tether is nice. The version I first looked at had less function than the Remote Assistant but now is equal and with a few feature not found in the Pentax program. Drawback is it requires .Net installed and only runs under Windows.

By the way you can install the Pentax software even if you have lost your original CDs. Just download the latest versions and follow some of the methods in this thread:

It appears most removable drives (CD, flash, etc.) if renamed appropriately will suffice.
