    Hi,

    Sorry if this is old news, but I am looking for a wireless shutter
    release for the D200. Range 100 ft. Any vendor will do.

    Thanks,

    Tien

    B&H shows 2 but not with that range. Presumably the Dot-Line brand has
    an even shorter cord, still it's hard to justify an additional $90 for
    Nikon brand, what could the difference be?

    Similar offerings at: http://www.adorama.com they mention specifically
    the adorama brand model has a 36-inch cable. Both do not have the Nikon
    remote in stock, nor extra batteries.

    Thanks but I am looking for a WIRELESS remote shutter release so I can
    set up my camera and release the shutter from say 100 ft.

    I don`t even know if this is possible but I figure someone must be
    using this esp for bird photography.

    At the nikonusa.com web site under firmware for the D200 you will find:

    4. What will change with the scheduled D200 firmware update?

    Primarily, features will be added or modified as described below.

    o An "Image authentication" item will be added to the setup menu.

    o Support for the optional Wireless Transmitter WT-3 will be added.

    [end of excerpt]

    Too bad a wire transmitter isn't a wireless shutter.

    If you can wait the WT-3 should do what you want, but it will be an
    expensive solution requiring a laptop.

    Personally I would try a Twin1 R2-SRN for 80 bucks and a Powermid Dual Power
    (note the "Dual Power", the regular Powermid needs AC power) remote
    extender for about 50 (good luck getting one if you're not in the EU
    though--I'd have a British friend pick one up on his next trip). If it all
    works together that should get you your 100 feet.

    Can anyone comment further on the wired remote options below? I didn't
    like the infrared thing for the D70 and would prefer a wired remote
    shutter release.

    I also do not understand why such a thing should cost more that $520 it
    just clicks the shutter right? Does it do some other magic?

    Thanks! Almost exactly what I was looking for. I expected the D200 to
    have some reception ability so that I would not need a receiver as
    well, but fine, this will do nicely.

    "The Nikon MC-36 Multi-Function remote provides a simple trigger
    function and can activate the bulb function on Nikon SLR cameras. It
    also functions as a timer remote and can be programmed to function as an
    intervalometer. It connects to Nikon SLR cameras that are equipped with
    the 10-pin remote socket.

    Compatible with: D2 series, D1 series, D200, D100, F6, F5, F100, and
    MC-26 Adapter Cord."


    http://www.adorama.com/CZDRD200.html?searchinfo=d200 remote&item_no=2
    "The remote release allows the camera to be released from a distance.
    All electronic, just plug in and use. 36" long, has a momentary release
    as well as a locking position for time release"

    so except for the intervalometer this should be fine. The camera has an
    intervalometer built in the menu.
