"Where to connect remote"


US
          

I guess I'm a bit lost, here. I have the Phottix Cleon 11 N10 remote, supposedly for the D7000, but can't figure out where to plug it into the camera. I've studied the illustrations in the book, and opened every cover I could find, but must be overlooking something.

On the diagram, I've been looking around numbers 16, 17, & 18, but nothing seems to fit my connector. I have one end of the cord plugged into the receiver, and the other end of the cord is supposed to fit into a connection on the camera, but it sure has me stumped unless Phottix sent me the wrong cord.

If someone can tell me where it is "supposed" to plug into the camera, then I can figure out pretty quick whether it's the wrong cord for my D7000.
Thanks,

Betty

I have not used it, but from the cable I see online, it looks like it goes into the GPS connector on the D7000

Checkout this:

The connector surely looks like a GPS connector.

With your help, I zeroed in on the proper place. My problem was orienting the connection to the slot, I was trying it backwards. I finally turned it around and worked it a bit (tight fit) and it went in. I'm always hesitant trying to force something, for fear if it is the wrong place, I'll ruin the pins.

I'm a happy camper now. You guys are great.

I bought the ML-L3 IR remote for less then $15.00. I try to use connections on any camera as infrequently as possible. One bent connector and a connection can be damaged.

Ahh! Another chronic worrier just like yours truly. I hate having to flip from AF to manual for fear that the switch will wear out - finally deciding if it has to be done, I'll flip the one on the lens. I can better bear its return to Nikon than the body.

Bettye...

Please don't pay too much heed to what William and I said. You can miss out on a lot of fun by being afraid to use the gear the way it was intended. I, for one, have missed a lot of pictures by being reluctant to swap out lenses for fear of contaminating the sensor, etc. A sensor can always be cleaned and a connector repaired. But those photo opportunities I missed are probably gone for good.

Go ahead and enjoy that new camera!

Don F.

I definitely am enjoying this camera, Don. I can't wait for the holidays to be over when I'll have the time to flex the D7000's muscles.
