    I don't see a connection for one. Is it possible?

    Thanks.

    Probably wireless. Is there an IR receiver on the front of the camera?

    A Nikon user will probably be in here soon to tell you which one you need.

    I just googled it. It looks like you need the ML-L3 wireless remote.

    There's some on eBay (generic ones) for under $4 shipped if you don't mind waiting a couple weeks to get it, they work great!

    Great! Thanks!

    I'll probably go with the Nikon one.

    Don't know why I didn't try google. Duh. I spent an hour looking at B&H but I was searching for "shutter/cable release," not "remote."

    Anyway, appreciate the help.

    The ML-L3 is also used on the D80, so you may also want to check the MD-DC1 (wired) remote shutter release. I have both for the D80 because I found the ML-L3 wanting on bright sunshiny days.

    I don't believe I have a jack for the MD-DC1. But I'm exited about the wireless. It's $15 at Amazon. Been wanting one for awhile now.

    Well from what I've heard the Nikon one doesn't have the distance this one does but that's cool. :)

    Enjoy, it's a sweet addition!

    Thanks! I probably won't be doing too many group shots from far away. I'm mostly interested in learning about exposure and stuff.

    It's funny, I just flipped through the manual and there it was on page 22. It's about time I RTFM. :mrgreen:

    Ha ha... yeah, I've told a few people to do it re: software or whatever. Now I'm telling it to myself.

    The Nikon manual is great. Really put together well. And it's all in English. :mrgreen:
