Which cable switch???

Posted 22/09/2011 - 16:52 Link
I have a cable switch F (used on an old MZ7)
Will this work with a K100d and K200d???
The cable switch specified in the manuals is CS205 however Amazon sells a Cable switch F which is described as being compatible with a long list of Pentax cameras, K100d and K200d both are listed.
Any ideas??

Why not just try it and see?

I have a Canon cable switch which works with mine.

If the plug fits the socket on the camera then it should work ok!

Here is the wiring for the Pentax remote if you want to check the one you have with a meter.

Thank you gents, I have just checked and the cable switch i have has a different connector so it will not fit either the 100d or 200d.
