I have the Phottix Cleon II for my D300, and it works great. I just ordered one today for my D7000. It is the Phottix Cleon II, version N10 which includes the D7000 if anyone is interested.

What I like about this system is you can fire it from anywhere. You don't have to be in front of the camera.

A little pricey, though. I thought it said $46.31, but found out that was Euro, my cost plus shipping is $65. But it will be worth it. The range is much further than the Nikon ML-L3.
Go to the Phottix website.

The ML-ML3 does a great job. Having a sensor in the back of the camera is also a great advantage.

Have not received my D7000 yet, but what is this 'rear sensor'?

Look fwd to hearing about it...is the manual similar to others, I have had manuals with my D80 and D200, and have supplemented then with the Magic Lantern series.

Any other idea re manuals? BTW I think Ken Rockwell may have on online.

Hello Ronald,

The "rear sensor" is the same as the front sensor when you elect to use a remote. The ML-ML3 works great and since you have a sensor on each side of the camera it makes for much easier set ups when you can pre-focus. The manual is similar to others and front to back is 326 pages that covers the camera. Welcome aboard and good luck with your new toy.

Vivitar now makes one as well, that seems similar to the phottix, but cheaper...

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, or if I accidentally changed something, but now, with my Phottix plugged in, when I turn my camera on it fires on its own without me firing the remote myself. Plus I don't see anything through the viewfinder when I do try to use the remote to focus/fire. I turn the camera off, and back on, and it fires by itself again.
When I unplug the remote, the camera works fine with my finger on the shutter.
What have I inadvertently done?

For me the ML-ML3 is a great option and priced at only $17.10 I will definitely be getting one.

I just ordered a ML-ML3 knockoff (shoot) for $5 including shipping.

If you need a trigger, YongNuo makes a ML-3 knockoff with D90/D7000 plug.

The only way I have found to start the Video remotely is with a computer and Nikon Camera Control software.
