:idea:I have found the short length of the Pentax remote cable release rather vexing, expecially when trying to phtograph that pesky Humming Bird. The short length of the cord forced me to stand next to the camera vs being able to sit down in a comy deck chair! On a recent visit to the local Radio Shack I came across a coiled extension cord which fits perfectly and now allows me about6 feet of extension. If anyone is interested, it is ithe Hands-Free Headset Extension Cable (used for cordless and cell phones) and sells for under US$7. Here is an image of it set up. Hope it is of use to others.

It looks like a nice cable. In case others can't find one at their local RS I bought mine at "yourcablestore". I like their attitude and fast delivery even to Canada.
