Hi I'm new to the forum but I have some camera experience so hello To all! I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good remote wireless shutter release for my D5100. I don't want the one where you have to stand in front of the camera. I'd like to be able to stay at least twenty feet away and be behind the camera. All help appreciated.
Chuck

Hi Chuck,

The D5100 has two IF receivers built into the camera. One on the front and one on the back. That will allow you to trigger the shutter from behind the camera. The Nikon ML-L3 has a range of up to 16 feet or so which is very close to the 20 feet you list.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks Marty. I didn't realize there was a infrared receiver in the back. The ML-L3 will work just fine.

Hi Marty,
You know I think I read that owners manual at least a dozen times (more or less) and I missed that sensor on the back. Guess old age is messing with my memory. Thanks again.
Chuck
