The D70 does not take the traditional cable remote, the infra red is the only one which works. I'm not sure why you have been told they are more trouble than they are worth, I used mine constantly without any problems and Robbie also has no problems with hers.

With the IR you just need to make sure you are pointing it somewhere near the front of the camera, which is no problem unless you are stood more than a couple of feet behind it (not sure why you would be).

Dianna,

If I recall, when it comes to remote shutter releases for the D70 you don't really have much of a choice. The D70 isn't capable of being fired with a cable release so the only option is to go down the infra-red route, the official Nikon unit isn't to bad on cost and at least you'll know it'll work.

Andy.

The D70 won't take a cable release Dianna. I'm not sure if the D70s will, perhaps the release you have seen is for that. If it isn't then it is probably some gadget to fire the IR using a cable release.

If you can't do the link, just paste the URL and I'll sort out the link for you.

Hi there.... I have used the Nikon ML-L3 Remote with a D70 & D70s for the last 2 years.Very easy to use and no cable to get in the way (like with the one I now use for my D200) I can honestly say it has never failed in any way and is still going strong today.
Hope that helps.

That's for a D70s Dianna, is it definitely the D70 you have?

Dianna if it is the ML-L3 that you need I found my old one the other day, figuring it was worth nothing I was going to bin it.

Presuming that the postage to you would not be prohibitive I'm happy to send to you if you PM me with address details.

I'll have to find it again as I put it in a box of things to be sorted out, so it won't be until Friday at the earliest.
