Hello all,

I'm looking for an electronic remote shutter release for my K10D (and future K20D!) but Pentax doesn't seem to offer one. Is this the case?

Did a quick check on B&H Photo and all they had was a 3rd party *tethered* cable release.

This is for doing multi-exposure/HDR photography which tends to be several seconds (early morning/late evening) and for which I use the 2"/mirror-up timer. So far I've been giving it the old "gentle squeeze" but I want to go completely electronic and untethered.

The wired remotes are probably more reliable in bright light compared to the Remote F I bought at the same time I bought my k10d. On the other hand, the Remote F will "hold" the shutter release down for as long as you hold the button on the remote. I am not sure whether the 30,000 release battery life takes this into account or not.
