Had many different setups over time and was never really happy until I treated myself to a Gitzo Systematic tripod. The next item was a Wimberley head and a lens plate to match. Expensive I know but the resulting setup is great with my Pentax 600 FA* F4 etc.

After installation and camera on, the camera beeps and I can see the graphic on the camera screen shows it booting up? The graphic stops flashing then greys out. So I cannot connect my ipad. Any ideas please? :confused:

Pentax TS-110 Release Timer Switch - Conversion
Posted By CertEdFriday
Replies: 1
Views: 3,893
Thought I would share this. A good while ago I managed to find a Pentax TS-110. The idea was to convert it for use with my K10D or K20.
Cameras moved on, but not so my project! Now with a K3, I thought it high time I got going with this.

Basically, I removed the old wiring and plug and replaced it with an Amazon purchased lead with a 2.5mm moulded jack plug already attached.
With a low power soldering iron, with a small bit, I desoldered the old wiring. Careful to note the colours and the locations on the circuit board.
iPhone camera and took a few pics.

Once the cable was stripped back on the new lead, I carefully glued the outer cover into the old cable clamp shroud. (That was the only piece of the old cable that I re-used. Oh and of course I retained the cable velcro cable tie!

Attached are a couple of photos and a drawing, should anyone else think of doing the same modification.

Thanks to a Forum member, I was able to obtain a copy of the user manual too :D:D:D
