Just got my Phottix Wireless Remote Set N1 for Nikon D300 off of eBay, and I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised with how well this thing works. Build quality is respectable too.

Having bought (and returned) Nikon's expensive ML-3 remote (and also owning the wired MC-36 remote), this thing is a steal for $26 US.

If you're looking for a simple remote for your D300 that will mimic the two stage shutter release button for use with Live View Tripod Mode or Mirror Lock Up (or timer mode for that matter), this is the solution. While I did not test it at its reported max range of 300+ feet, I will tell you it works around corners and walls with ease. It also has a bulb mode too.

I hated the ML-3 because it required narrow transmitter/receiver line of site for wireless use, used the hotshoe which prevented flash use, and required the camera to be in Continuous Focus Mode rather than Single Focus Mode (where I like to shoot via tripod most of the time). And let's not even discuss the price.

Real good value for the $ IMHO.
