question

What cable should I purchase for use with the Pentax 645Z?
Asked by: Sean
It depends on what kind of photos you are doing and your style. If you are old school and prefer the solid reliability of a wire, yes, use this Pentax Cable Switch 205. If you wish more flexibility and time lapse, you can still be wired but use this more sophisticated Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with Sub Mini Connection B&H # VERCC12. If you just need to be in the shot with the family or a selfie, use this. Pentax Waterproof Infrared Remote Control B&H # PERCWP.
