I received the Twin 1 Wireless Remote transmitter/ receiver(R2-SRN) for my D200 and ran a quick test of it's performance.

Here's my take on it as requested in an earlier post:

In a nutshell, it meets or exceeds my expectations. The receiver mounts to the camera body via a screw mount to the 10 pin connector. Single button, first detent for focus, full press for shutter

Pluses:
VERY small and weighs almost nothing

Build quality is good- receiver mounts firmly to the camera
body(could be damaged if bumped)

Advertised range is up to 20 meters- mine worked beyond 25 meters
unobstructed

Can be used wireless or wired with the included patch cord

The transmitter works with wireless enabled Nikon
bodies(d70)as well according to the instructions but I don't have
one so couldn't test.

Self powered, won't deplete the camera battery

Price- less than most others available and a lot more compact


Minuses:

IR system- limited to line of sight

Included dismal instructions are a poor translation( made by
Seculine in Korea) but operation is straight forward.

An included cover/ case to keep the connector clean would be nice.

Don't know how this will hold up for heavy use but seems to be pretty durable.

Here's the lin no affiliation)
