    I don't own the remote since everyone and their brother is buying them for the D70....

    But I hear the D70 and IR remote (ML-L3) works quite well as long as there is line of sight or a reflection to bounce the signal off of.

    The ML-L3 is about $18

    I verified this... I have an ML-L1 and it works with an F65 and a D70. I was looking for the ML-L3, but no one has this in stock, but the guy behind the counter had an ML-L1 so I figured, might as well give it a try. Lo and behold, it works!

    I did finally get my ML-L3 remote. Just went into Kits camera (which I hate doing) and they got one from the warehouse... $18. It works great but you need a line of site to the front of the camera... or something that the beam can bounce off of.

    I had a remote for my Olympus E20-N. It worked great as long as you were 2 or 3 feet or less away from the camera. Any farther out, didn't work at all.

    Why would you want to use a remote over 3 feet away from you camera? I can understand 1 foot or even all the way out to 2 1/2 feet but over 3 feet, you must be working for the CIA or FBI to need a camera with all that power!!

    Ha Ha! It was a company group shot that I was supposed to be in. I thought it might be better than using the timer but I was wrong. So, the timer was used instead. :lol:
