I was thinking of actually attaching a third party remote to a handle bar or something and screw that to the bottom of the dslr as a DIY portrait grip at one point.

Right now, I'm watching the developments on the Ownuser grip. Its kinda unwieldy considering the side door must be left open but its the best thing out there.

I use a Sunpak AutoZoom 333 (7.9V) and a Vivitar S1 600 (8.7V) so its well below the Pentax Tech Support stated 30V limit. 30V is the limit for the K100D right?
Not sure about the limit for a k100d, but I just tried my ancient Sunpak 333 and it works with my k100d! I got nice exposure by using the camera in Manual mode, and making the appropriate settings to the flash and camera. The flash was set to 1/2 power. Much more complicated than a dedicated P-TTL flash, but hey, it is free!

Amen to that - I'd love to have a grip for my K110D. I don't even care if it would have AE-L, but the other day I was dying to have a vertical shutter release...
Is there even an aftermarket battery grip for the K100'S?
