MZ-S IR remote is...?

Hey folks, could you help me out? I can't seem to find the info I need. What model of IR remote works with the MZ-S grip? Is it this one? Does whatever remote the MZ-S uses work with the K10D too?

I'm wanting to use the remote for tripod shots. Thanks for any info you can give me.

Hi Bryan, Believe that animal is "Remote Control F", meant to try it and never did.
good to go on K20D also. might want to verify, seem to recall reading, was
tickled that I already had it, for my K20.

adendum: paid about same, about week later one was available here for $10

Thanks Bill! I thought it was something special, but it look's like a dead simple device.

IR Confirmed

Hello Vertex Ninja,

I can confirm that the Remote Control F is compatible with the MZ-S with the BG-10 grip.

Here's the rub - Remote Control System[For 35mm SLRs] : Accessories : Film Cameras : PENTAX

The remote control is dead simple, either the original E or F or the el-cheapo versions available in the internet will work.

Sorry to bump this back up, but I had a question concerning how the remote F works with the MZ-S:

I recently bought an MZ-S and I do not have the grip yet, but I was also looking into doing long exposures. If the camera is in Bulb mode, will the remote keep the shutter open (either by holding down the button or by hitting button once to open shutter and a second time to close?)

I already have the remote and the cable releases for the MZ-S are sort of hard to come by. So I am hoping that getting the grip would solve the issue. Thanks in advance for any info.

You have to hold the remote's button in. The timer release can set the exposure length.
