OK, thank you Gary and Paul.
That's good to know. I've avoided getting anything from overseas,
thinking I'd get stung on this end.
I appreciate the help guys.

I'm not in the US but I order stuff from China all the time, never been stung on taxes or had any problems. One time a package didn't arrive and they gave me a full refund.

[QUOTE=Trojansoc;1105981]GW.....before I answer....you're shooting the K-7, right?

Paul

Since I was able to find the link easily, I'll explain. I purchased the trigger below with four receivers for a little under a hundred bucks. After some initial problems, this one has been very reliable on the K-7, but not on the K-20. I haven't tried it on the K-10.

Hey Paul,
I thought I replied to this earlier but must have forgotten to hit the post button.
I wish you were correct but, I only wish I had the K-7! I'm going to be stuck with the K-20 for a while yet. Although, I'm really surprised the unit you have won't work on both the K-7 & the K-20. You'd think all Pentax digital camera hot shoe set-up would be the same.

Yeah you would think that, but my Soligor flash worked perfectly on the K10D and the K-7 doesn't even know there's a flash there. It only fires it as the hot shoe is linked mechanically to the shutter, so I have to use the camera in Manual.
