Default Pentax S4 - Remote control

On the picture of the camera I can see a remote control icon on the camera, but nothing about remote control is mentioned.
Is there a remote control option? If it is, is it included or optional. How much? How big?
Please answer
Thank you

I have an Optio S and yes it is remote controllable. I actually have an old Pentax P&S 35mm that came with a remote that works with my S. And, no the S didn't come with a remote.

SO as I understand, pentax has a standard remote control for all cameras that can be purchased separatly or included with some cameras. Does anyone knows how much it is?

Don't know if this will help you as it's in the US.

I actually got a free remote when i bought my S4 in Australia. It's *very* small and works a treat. Just one button used like the shutter button on the camera. You can also get a remote that has zoom buttons as well, but i don't really see the need for that.

The S4 has 2 remote modes. one gives you a 3s delay, the other is a instant shot.

It is the Pentax LS Zoom remote E (also the F, no Zoom).

The E can also control the zoom besides shutter release Both are about $30.

It is quite small infared deal like a tv remote.
