You can use any remote control that is made for Pentax cameras for K-S1.

The Pentax IR remote control should work.

I use this very simple IR control for Pentax:

I don't have exactly the same brand - there are a lot of products available with almost the same design. Make sure that ours is for Pentax. I also use them at my job. Once I bought one of these items and it did not work. I exchanged the battery and it worked fine - mabe it was a little too long in the store ...

Best regards

Thanks Holger.

So I today went to the camera shop and bought the O-RC1 remote control. I just tested it on my K-S1 and it works !!

It did both autofocus and then release the shutter, exactly as pushing the shutter key. I assume that if I change the AF/MF switch of the camera into MF, then it will only release the shutter, and thus I can do a suitable pre-focus. Anyway, during the weekend I will go out and make tests with the camera on a tripod.
