7 Day Shop, Wireless remote control for Pentax, (7DSNW3). (Shutter Release)

Price now at £11.29.

Has anyone used the above.
Does it work ok etc.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but looked back through topics to the start of 2012, and I can't find anything relating.

Many thanks.

'Don't know if it is the same model but we all bought it for £1.79 or £1.99 just a few weeks ago.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Many thanks VIC.

I think the one at £1.99, was a wired or the infrared remote, the one I have listed it is the wireless/radio remote with 100mtr range, on a good day, with a following wind.

I have now ordered one, as I thought if it is no good I can return for refund.

But should have ordered, the day I posted the question, because over the following twenty four hour period, it had increased by £2.00.

Canít win them all.


Take care, & thanks.

You're right Chris the one we all bought is the infrared one. Some seemed to work and others didn't. Mine worked a treat on both my K7 & K5. CHEERS Vic.

I got a Chinese IR one (ok 2...) from ebay a while back...

Used it recently and had a few issues... Lots of shots of me looking annoyed waving it about and a couple of my bottom.

Works... Just not everytime...

I had a genuine Pentax IR, for my K10, that I was never able to get to work, and it cost a lot more than the after market ones.

Should have returned it for a warranty claim, but water under the bridge now.


Take care.

I intended to have said in the above, when I receive the wireless (radio) remote, I will report here on its performance.


Take care.
