ML-L3 Remote Useful?
May 18, 2004

I purchased a ML-L3 a couple weeks ago and finally got around to testing it. I set the D70 up on a tripod outside my window about 12 feet from the bird feeder. This feeder has fairly high traffic and I thought I would get some decent bird shots clicking the remote from inside. I am probably 4-5 feet to the side of the camera, but it won't fire. I moved to another window that is more head on, but 10-12 feet from the camera. No workie. After going outside, the remote seems to work good pointing straight at the camera - head on. It won't work from the back or sides.

So, unless I am doing something wrong, the remote doesn't work from the back of the camera, the sides of the camera, only head on. I guess this will be allright for slow speed shots, but not as versatile as I had hoped.

Anybody else have more successful stories?
