This may no longer apply but to go back to the original question you may be able to get a Hama remote control release Ni-1<00005348. I bought one for a modest price for use with my D300 - it would work with a D700. I still have it as a spare for my MC 30 which is more robust and can be locked into the socket. The Hama product can be seen on their website www.hama.co.uk for £33.99 but you should be able to get it for less via Amazon. I think I paid about £20.
