good cable release

In case you are looking for a remote cable release for Pentax (or Canon), I can recommend the following supplier:

DealExtreme: $4.82 YN Remote Shutter Switch for Canon / Contax / Pentax / Samsung Digital Camera

It's cheap! only $4.82 with free shipping, it does what it is supposed to do and the build quality is good. A "brand" cable release cost 4 to 5 times more!

I ordered it two weeks ago, and yesterday it arrived in my mailbox.
- half press activates auto-focus
- full press releases shutter
- switch can be locked for bulb mode.

How they manage to ship these things across the globe for free (I live in Belgium), remains a mystery for me, though.

Looks like the same build as the Pentax cable release, not like a throw-away from China I once tried. Just ordered one, to use as a backup/for new K20D. Thanks for the tip!

I ordered one and received it a few weeks ago. It seems to work very well.

I was very surprised at the low price and the free shipping was an added bonus.

I ordered one too. It you're shooting on a tripod, might as well go all the way.
