    Has anyone used these?

    How do they work and link up to the camera and stuff?

    I want to get one off ebay.

    Well I saw the product on ebay and it's just a remote..

    How does it know which camera to function with? Does it pick it up like bluetooth or something?

    Are there any fakes on ebay I need to worry about?

    I know for sure that the Nikon model remote you mention will work on D40, D70, and D80, as well as several of the Nikon 35mm film SLR's, so it also probably works on higher level DSLR bodies as well.

    No bluetooth, communicates directly with the camera body.

    Don't know about the off-brand stuff, but as inexpensive as the Nikon remote is, I use that and don't even worry about the el-cheapo's.

    I have one. It works great. You change the settings in your camera. The remote works with my d90 as well.

    It works just like any infrared remote control. Make sure the camera has the remote mode activated. Point it at the camera and press the button. Boom, shutter releases.

    I've had mine since about 2003 and I think it may be wore out. It works intermittently, even with a fresh battery. I gave up on it and got a wired shutter release a while back (one that has a built-in intervalometer).

    Just keep them away from your dog, if you have one, somehow my dog got ahold of mine and after a little chewing on it the thing didn't work anymore. I'm glad they're cheap.

    Didn't know they made a special Australian D90.... Does it have Kangaroo mode instead of sport mode? Just kidding ;)


    That will work just fine.

    I know some issues with warrenty and region affect certain products so I was checking (I almost bought my dslr from USA and shipped here but that turned out to be a bad idea).

    Thanks
