Setting for triggering D700 remotely?
May 8, 2010


I have a D700. SOme time ago I purchased a remote trigger for this camera. It's not Nikon and probably cost me €30 ($40). Today I tried to use it, but nothing happens.

The trigger consists of a small gadget that I plug into the remote-trigger plug (it is a 10pin?) on the front of the camera and a radio trigger. I can see on the gadget that I plug in to the camera that it receives the message from the radio-trigger.

I was wondering if there is a setting on the D700 that needs to activate remote triggering? I looked through the menu backwards and forwards and can't find anything in there - but that may just mean I am missing the way our Japanese engineer friends have named the option.

Or should I conclude something isn't working right?

Thanks for your input,

Rotterdam, The Netherlands
