Remotely Possible: Wirelessly Fire Your DSLR
The RCA Universal Remote model 403 or 404 will apparently fire the shutter of a Nikon D50, D70, D70s or a D80. Probably a D40 and D40x, too, as they use the same Nikon remote control. Just set your manufacturer code to 066, use the TV function and hit VOL+ to fire away.
This last part almost tripped me up: Remembering to set your camera to "remote" mode. This is typically in the single/continuous motor drive function.
I know we have lot of remote controls sitting out there, ya buncha couch potadas. If you find a combo that works with your camera, please post the info on both in the comments. Or you can yak about it here.
(Thanks to Eduardo for the heads-up!)
