Anyone have an instruction manual for battery grip BG-10 for the MZ-S?

After searching for 11 months I finally got the battery grip for my MZ-S, ordered from Robert's Camera in Indianapolis, IN, direct from their website. It was delivered fast, well packed and in great condition and seems to work well (I just got it today, so not film tested yet). Although it came with the original box and packing, there was no manual or instruction sheet. Do any of you have one or a pdf version, or know where I can get one? I've done some searches but have not turned anything up. Thanks! --> Richard.

Le grip BG-10

You'll need to translate from French, but that's a site that i saw that said it had it in English. I just couldn't find it.

What was your question about the battery grip? I use one with mine. I didn't follow the link, but I can't imagine it to be a long document!

Thanks everyone, I have the pdf of the manual now. I was wondering about the wireless remote control function of the battery grip, as described on pages 9 and 10 of the manual. There is no reference to a model number or part number for the remote controller. Was the remote controller included originally along with the grip? Mine didn't come with one. How can I find a remote controller that works with the grip?

Try going to " accessories " above

Under " other camera accessories "at the bottom And click on " miscellaneous "

See if you can figure out which wireless remote might work

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that but none of the listed IR remotes mention being compatible with the MZ-S grip.

FYI, it turned out a JVC remote "for pentax" that I already had works great with the BG-10 grip.

Here is a picture of my camera and the new grip:

Remote F, and G work fine
Also the "universal remotes" that have pentax mode
