If you own Pocket Wizards then you can fire your camera that way... You could buy their $140 10 pin Nikon cord or spend $25 and get a rip off one from China on ebay that works the same... I did the latter and it works like a charm.

I agree with Suha that the Yongnuo wireless shutter release is excellent.
I bought mine at a camera show here in Montreal 16 months ago from a Montreal importer... bought a hardwired cable release AND the wireless unit, BOTH for CDN $25. The batteries that come packaged don't last though, so buy a good name brand type. The receiver uses a compact CR2 available at camera stores and better retailers.
The Yongnuo digital features 4 channels or transmit codes which are set with dip switches and allow different programming options. You can even use your camera in BULB mode!
The small hand held transmitter has a two step push button. Push it half way to get the auto-focus on and working and a green led flashes. Push it all the way to trip the shutter and a red led on the transmitter indicates the shutter has been tripped.
The receiver is surprising small, about the thickness of your thumb, and about 3 inches long. It hangs from the molded 10 pin connector, so your hot shoe bracket is available for a flash, unlike the Pocket Wizard
I haven't tested it to see how far I can shoot wirelessly - for my applications I typically shoot from 20 to 50 feet away.
For Nikon D700 users, the correct model number is WRSII-N1.
Their website is slow and the English at times amusing. More info here http://www.hkyongnuo.com/e-aboutus.php
