Could anyone point me to a decent remote release? I would like to use it in bulb mode but am a bit puzzled as to the operation in this mode. Do i have to hold the button for the duration? Is there a remote that will time the exposure? Never used bulb mode before so i'm a bit unsure of how it all works. All. advice greatfully received.

The pentax one is good, you then have 2 options, hold the button down and the shutter stays open, or it can be locked in position then unlocked to close the shutter.
The camera will time the exposure up to 30 seconds, if you need more than this, the stop watch function on a mobile phone is what I use.
Pentax do wired remotes and wireless/water resistant remotes.
Have a look on ebay. There are wired remotes, wireless remotes, radio controlled remotes and timer remotes/interval remotes. Some do more than one thing as well. 7dayshop also usually have some for Pentax.
I have just reviewed this one Hahnel Giga T Pro II and used it on the K10D. You can get a basic one for a much lower price but you have to time exposures longer than 30 seconds. The Hahnel and others with a timer mode can be set for hours if necessary using the camera automatically locked open on the B-setting.
