    Is there a shutter release cable compatible with the D3000 or is the IR wireless remote the only option?

    For future reference to readers of this thread, the ones on eBay for $5 shipped work even better (longer distance).

    Granted they don't say 'Nikon' on them.

    How much longer? 5 feet? 50 feet? 500 ft? At what distance did the Nikon remote no longer trigger the camera?

    500ft? It's infrared, not magic.

    In my experience the Nikon cut out at about 20 feet, I had to stop at 30 feet because I ran out of hallway.
