Remote Control F, Card Reader, Card, Strap & Cloth $19.99 at Henry's
Posted By: pete-tarmigan, 02-06-2013, 08:23 AM

Henry's (Canada) marked down a "Pentax DSLR Memory Kit" (with the Remote Control F and bunch of other accessories) to $19.99, which is what the remote alone usually costs.

•Remote Control F
•2GB SD Memory Card
•SD Card Reader CS-01
•Multi-Purpose Cleaning Cloth
•Pentax Neck Strap

So if you need the remote and can use the other accessories, or if you just want to show the Pentax logo on a card reader, a cloth, and a memory card, it's a pretty good deal.

I ordered one of these as a boxing day sale from Henry's with free shipping. As has been said, the remote is worth that amount of money.

The neck strap is in my surplus box but the card reader is quite nice. Unlike some readers, this one has covers for BOTH ends so you can toss it anywhere in a camera bag and not worry about anything (dust etc) falling into it. It's also quite pretty when in use!!!

The memory card isn't really worth while but for $20 the whole kit is very much worth while.

Wonder what this package cost when new?

I use the Remote Control F a lot when my K-5 is on my tripod.

$100!

However, Henry's, like most brick-and-mortars camera stores in Canada, often lists gear at the manufacturer's suggested retail price.

True enough.

Rather overpriced at that price but worth it for $20.

Thanks, I was curious.

But, did you need or want the other $40 and would you have purchased that $40 worth of items at some point anyway?

In that case, you're still ahead of the game with the free shipping.
