Remote shutter release on ZX-60

I see on the front of the ZX-60 there's a little IR window for what I can only assume is a remote release. Will this work with a Pentax Remote Control F? Also, how do I set the drive mode to be remotely fired?

Ideas?

Thanks in advanced.

I just looked at the manual for the camera and see no mention of a IR receiver. i just quick glanced through it though, feel free to do so as well if you'd like:

I looked through it too and didn't see it either, but I've attached a picture of what I was talking about.

The Pentax cameras I've had with an IR remote were all triggered through the drive menu. Just set it to their remote setting and try it.

Might that be the self-timer lamp?

I have a ZX-60, and that little red light is, indeed, the self-timer warning light. If you set the self-timer, the light will flash. In the last couple of seconds before the exposure, the flash rate will increase.

Its just there to let the subjects know when to smile. Or, when to do the "bunny ears" on the person next to them, without giving Mom or Dad enough time to scold.
