    I'm thinking of buying a remote control for my Nikon D-80. Todate I used the timer whenever I used a tripod for long exposures.

    What should I look at in a remote?

    Thanks,
    Dani

    There's one on ebay (I have two of these) and they work awesome... about $5 shipped. Only downside is they take about 2 weeks to get, but it's worth it if you're not in a rush.

    Otherwise the Phottix Cleon II is another one I have that works incredibly well (no line of sight necessary).

    You cannot beat the Nikon Wireless remote ML-L3.

    Even on Amazon they are only like $15 bucks, free shipping with $25.00 order, so buy a filter or something.

    Actually you can.
    The one I have has better range (compared side by side with a friends remote), plus it's 1/3 the cost.
