Many of Pentax's cameras feature levels of water resistance, so it's good to know they have a remote that's at home in watery environments. This waterproof remote fires compatible cameras via infrared, and has controls for shutter release, zooming, and a function button (for specialized use with compact cameras).

Product Highlights:

  • waterproof remote for Pentax SLR and compact cameras
  • shutter, zoom, and function controls (functions vary by camera)
  • warranty: 1 Year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
