Customer Reviews:
  • Pentax remote review
    This product arrived in good condition and on time. The only thing that I would say about this is that you need to be in front of the camera for it to register. I would like it to work from a longer distance and angle....more info
  • Works! (with my Optio A20)
    I won't give it 5 stars because it's just a remote. It does work exactly as it should and it's a must have for taking your own pictures when out on vacation.

    I use it in conjunction with a gorillapod (awesome tripod): http://www.amazon.com/Joby-GP2-00EN-Gorillapod-Flexible-Digital/dp/B000HAVVFG/ref=pd_bbs_sr_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1206992495&sr=8-3

    I never need to ask someone to take our pictures for us - set up the gorillapod virtually anywhere & on anyTHING, use the remote to snap a picture.

    One note on the Optio A20 - You have to enable the remote functionality on the camera itself by pressing UP on the directional arrows and then choosing either "Drive Mode Remote Control" (3 second delayed timer or "Drive Mode 0 Second Remote Control"

  • Remote works perfectly w/ Pentax K10D
    This works perfectly w/ my Pentax K10D. If you are looking to take extended release shots or anything from a tripod you will need this....more info
  • Compatible with the Pentax K10D DSLR
    The Wireless Remote Control E will also work just fine with the K10D, and likely other similar Pentax DSLR's as well. Of course, the smaller button for zooming (a feature limited mainly to P&S cameras with built-in lenses and electronic zooming) has no effect on the K10D, but the primary shutter release button works exactly the same as that on the Pentax Remote Control F. The two remotes are the same size and either will fit into the (BG2) battery grip for the K10D. They're also cosmetically identical except for the smaller zoom button....more info
  • Very useful accessory
    This remote should work with most remote-capable Pentax cameras. This is the "E" remote, which has two buttons, shutter release and zoom. Pentax also makes an "F" remote which is compatible with the "E", but lacks the zoom button. Check the documentation for your camera to see which version is best for you.

    The product description gives an incorrect size for this remote. It is not 2.7" x 1" x 0.7". The correct dimensions are 2.0" x 0.9" x 0.2" and it only weighs 0.2 ounces.

    This remote has many uses, not just for taking group or self portraits. It is also useful for nighttime photography with slow shutter speeds or for macro photography, so that you don't accidentally bump the camera while pressing the shutter release.

    On some digital cameras, this remote can also function as a slide-show remote when the camera is connected to a television. In this case, the shutter release button displays the next picture and the zoom button displays the previous....more info
  • Pentax remote control works with Pentax Optio A20, A10, etc
    I really wanted a camera that had the remote control functionality.

    It gets boring if when traveling alone all your pictures are of empty landscapes or buildings and one can't even take even a couple of pics of oneself in front of the lens... and the self timer is a hassle. Or when traveling with a friend and you can't take good pictures of you and your friend together. And forget about asking someone passing by: the few times i've bothered they rarely manage to take a good picture.

    I searched far and wide for a pocket camera that has as an accessory a remote control. And finally discovered the Pentax range of cameras. I'm a loyal fan of Canon, but few of their cameras do have remote control functionality (e.g. SLR Digital Rebel), but i was looking for a pocket camera.

    So i decided to purchase the Pentax Optio A10 - because of the remote control. But I'm very happy with my purchase. The quality of the pictures is very good.

    Note: the best way to check if any given camera has the remote control option is to go to the manufacturer's website, and download their electronic pdf manual. E.g. go to the Pentax website, select the model, and select download manual. For older models not listed, try the search text box.

    This is the one for the camera. In addition to triggering the shutter, it will also zoom in and out to pre set distances....more info
  • Love this remote!
    It works with my Pentax SLR (ZX-7) and Pentax APS cameras. What a great way to take group photographs!...more info
  • Cool gadget!
    It's a pity that a product as good and useful as this one would not have any description of its specs and functionalities at all. Like one other customer who reviewed this product here, I bought it hoping it would work with my Pentax EI-200 digital camera; and better yet, with my Pentax SLR as well. After a few minutes of fumbling (the remote does not come with instructions or user's guide at all) and reading through my digital camera's operations manual I finally was able to make it work. And boy was I relieved and impressed. This thing is very tiny and weighs almost nothing but it works reliably. I have yet to figure out how to make it work with my SLR though. The only thing I don't like about it is that you cannot use it to focus on your subject (you know, the way you half press the camera's shutter release button to get the correct focus and exposure settings), once you press the button, the shutter releases. So you should make sure you've adjusted the camera settings to your liking before you push the remote button. I also haven't figured out the use of the lower, smaller button yet. The manufacturer should have included a concise operations guide and a list of models this item is compatible with. Overall, however, I am more than satisfied with my purchase. Having an optional remote control is always a welcome convenience....more info
  • Pentax Remote Control E
    The Pentax website does not list this product. There is no description of this product's functionality on Amazon. I bought it assuming it would work with the Pentax 928M. It does. My major question was whether or not one could send a shoot picture signal to the camera from the side (So one could take a picture in bulb mode, without being in the picture). The answer is yes. In addition, it's incredibly compact (2" by 1" by .25")...more info
