Pentax K-50 delay time

What's the delay time of the K-50 from triggering the shutter from the remote port and the shutter triggering?

Thanks

Wired? Should not be any, it is an electrical connection that I believe is in the same circuit as the shutter button.

I thought it would be, but what's the delay time with the shutter then?
Thanks

You can set it to 3s, or instant. Instant in this case means just a couple hundred milliseconds. You could use a slow-motion camera to measure it

It'll already be focused and manual exposure so I am hoping for a delay of only around 100ms.
I'm going to measure it later though.

Let us know what that is. it is undetectable to the human eye so would need some kind of test gear to measure I suppose? On P&S cameras there is some delay, but I always assumed on DSLR that the delay was non-existent.

Doing some research the highest end DSLRs (D4, 1D X) can have a delay of around 40-50 ms when manually focused.
So I suppose 100 ms isn't bad for a 'cheap' DSLR.

I'll measure it by triggering a high speed timer and the shutter at the same time and see what the speed is on the timer.
