No wireless remote shutter release in D300?
Jan 23, 2009

I am a little dismayed at what I perceive as a lack of demand for a remote shutter system as it exists in the D80/90. Why is this feature not included in cameras such as the D200/300. Why would a professional/serious amateur photographer not want a remote that enables one stand well back in a studio/nature/sporting event and fire away at will, from a benign location, when the moment is right? One can often do more to create a better setting, and be less threatening, while away from the camera than to be stuck right there or dragging chords. How about self-portraits? Or being included group shots? The D200/300 only offers a one shot timer release which won't even work on live view - which incidentally, is just what one would like to be using should the camera be on a tripod. The ML-L3 wireless remote for the D80/90 sells for about $25 and works beautifully. How does one complain about this deficiency effectively to Nikon in hopes of having this feature included in the D300's successor? Anyone else frustrated by this?
