Hello all. FYI I just picked up a generic wireless remote for the D200 at B&H for $80. It's called a "Twin 1" Wire & Wireless remote from Seculine Co, Ltd. www.secu-line.com. It has a receiver which plugs into the 10-pin port and a transmitter, which looks like a car remote. The "wired" version is a cord that plugs into both units, and looks to me like it's not an option.
I used it briefly last night. It has a two-position sutter release, half-way to focus and all the way to fire. There's a switch on the side for bulb.
Not sure how long it will last, but it seems to function well.
I think he means this one. I had thought it was an add-on to the ZigView LCD finder, but apparently it's a standalone. Good to know. There's another one for $100 from Dot Line, but I think they're just an import firm who markets other manufacturers (my Dot Line wired remote had an Adidt M1 label).
Jeff Bower I wish my D200 body was a significant portion of my NAS-related expenses...
Jeff - that's the one (your first reference). It's B&H item number ZIR2SRN. Interesting that it doesn't say "Zigview" on the package, but it does on the receipt. At B&H they just refer to it as "generic".
As an update to my previous post, it looks like you have to have it connected by wire to use the bulb setting.
The Twin1 is IR and it does have a bulb switch, which only works in the wired mode. I've used it a few more times and there are sensors on the front and back of the receiver, so it works from a variety of angles. Not sure about the batteries, I'm out of town and the instructions are in NY - I'll find out next Tuesday.
Be aware anyone who purchases this in the UK (Warehouse Express) the kit does not include a screwdriver. I had a hell of a job to find something to fit. You won't believe how "tiny" the screws for getting to the batteries in both the receiver and sender are. If you drop one, consider it lost! The batteries by the way are 23A 12volt for sender and CR2032 3volt for the receiver.
Hmmmm - they must have heard the complaints. Mine came with a little screwdriver/wrench combination like you can get at an eyeglasses shop. Thanks for the info on the batteries - I don't have any experience trying to find the 23A. Anybody know about their availability?

In the UK, no screwdriver included in the kit.
