5.0 out of 5 stars Works as stated, despite off brand
I was very skeptical to order an off-brand Pentax item as well as from a unknown seller at the time. Due to the previous two reviews I took a chance and at worst case, I was out $10 or could get Amazon to give me credit.
Everything turned out great. It shipped the next day and I got in the mail pretty quick. It came in a a small box with a cleaning cloth,...

3.0 out of 5 stars I do not regred bourght this one, September 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: IR Wireless Remote Control for PENTAX Q, PENTAX DSLR (645D, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-50, K-30, K-500, X-5, K-m, K-r, K-x, K-01, K-5, K-7, K10D, K20D, K100D, K110D, K200D, K2000) *ist (D, DL, DL2, DS, DS2) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
the price is good, and it does do its job with my Pentax 30K camera. The supplier even send me a follow up letter after my purchase, said, I could return the product if not 100% satisfied, and so. However I found the distance to remotely control my camera is somewhat limited to about 10 ft, which is usually not far enough for you to stand in front of the camera with other people.

You have to aim it just right to get a successful shot, from even a foot away. From several feet, forget it.

I mainly use this with a Pentax Q, but the same is true for my K10D.

Bought this remote for my Pentax Q that comes with a manual zoom lens so there's no need for the W/T button. Now I am using the W/T to focus the camera (in auto mode) before depressing the "shoot" button. Excellent remote, excellent price and excellent dealer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, Affordable, Functional, April 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: IR Wireless Remote Control for PENTAX Q, PENTAX DSLR (645D, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-50, K-30, K-500, X-5, K-m, K-r, K-x, K-01, K-5, K-7, K10D, K20D, K100D, K110D, K200D, K2000) *ist (D, DL, DL2, DS, DS2) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
I bought this for use with my K30 and have not been disappointed.
-The range for me is fine, as expected it works better from the front.
-Only works if camera is set to remote control in shooting mode
-AF works if you set the camera to AF before remote picture.
-Price is low enough I'm not concerned about loosing it.
-Slim size fits in change pocket or camera bag.

Great remote for my K5. Works better and has a longer range than the Pentax version. When paired up with my tripod this allows some great shots!

This IR remote works exactly as advertized with my Pentax K100D. No bells or whistles, but it comes with a battery and works great. A good buy!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: IR Wireless Remote Control for PENTAX Q, PENTAX DSLR (645D, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-50, K-30, K-500, X-5, K-m, K-r, K-x, K-01, K-5, K-7, K10D, K20D, K100D, K110D, K200D, K2000) *ist (D, DL, DL2, DS, DS2) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
About Item- For what it is it works great, no problems. I was going to go with the $20 Pentax F remote, but decided on this instead. So far I have no complaints.

About Seller- Seller shipped the item the weekday after order was submitted, arrived before earliest arrive by date. 5/5, no complaints. Had to leave feedback here since it submitted messed up originally.

I'm very happy with this off-brand Pentax Remote, since I can afford to buy extras for when I inevitably misplace the one I'm using. Works great on the Pentax K20D and *ist.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: IR Wireless Remote Control for PENTAX Q, PENTAX DSLR (645D, K-5 II, K-5 II s, K-50, K-30, K-500, X-5, K-m, K-r, K-x, K-01, K-5, K-7, K10D, K20D, K100D, K110D, K200D, K2000) *ist (D, DL, DL2, DS, DS2) + Premium MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics)
Simple, inexpensive and working. Tested from the distance of ~6m.
I could make some "wish list" for features, but for the given price ? no complains.

Update:
After couple of months, I put this remote to the "real" test.
After about 200 pictures, shutter button stopped working.
Not sure about warranty on the item, but it is out of return /exchange window.
And for the price paid I don't want to bother about return.
I guess, you get what you pay for...once again.
