Just wondering if there is an electronic doohickey that will allow a Pentax K5 to transfer files from the camera to a computer or phone from USB or HDMI maybe, via bluetooth.

Not that I'm aware of. A Toshiba Flashair card will allow transfers to any device with wifi. They're available up to 64GB, and though they cost roughly double what a non-wifi card of the same capacity would, they're very useful and worth the cost. I always have one in slot 2 of my K-3.

Pentax FluCard O-FC1? Only 16gb though and needs a Pentax app.

No app. needed. Connection is through a browser, with the interface being. provided by the FluCard.

Interesting. Thanks to all. The option seems to be the Toshiba card for the K5. Food for thought.

FYI the Toshiba card uses a specific app or you can simply use the browser of your choice to navigate and download too. I use the app these days but for a time I had a mobile that I couldn't make work with the app so I used the browser option. That was a few years ago and I now have a newer version of the card and I imagine the app has also been updated.
