What would be a good wireless remote to buy for my D5000.

Hi Ken,

The Nikon ML-L3 IR remote sells for about $16.95 new.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

The ML-L3 is a good one if you'll be in front of the camera, and not too far away.

The Hahnel is a good radio remote (the ML-L3 is IR). It isn't directional and mine is fully reliable at well over 100 feet - probably out to about 200 feet. (I use mine for triggering a second camera across an equestrian ring.)

The Phottix RF is popular and not expensive. I've never used it myself, though.

I will throw in a vote for the ML-L3 as well, use mine mainly for long time exposures.
