Remote release for Coolpix models

Hi,

I am thinking of buying a Coolpix camera for mounting on roll bars of cars and the A frames of boats to take some action shots. This new camera would be a substitute for my D70 & as some of the older models (like the CP3200/3700 etc) are now very cheap, it wouldn't be the end of the world if it got damaged.

The Nikon remote retails here in the UK for approx £100. This is almost as much as the compact cameras I am looking at. Does anyone know know of an alternative that would work? I am trying to keep the costs as low as possible, and I guess my budget for camera & remote would be in the region of £200.

I am not familiar with all the CP models, so does any one know of a (soon to be replaced) model that would also accept a fish eye lens kit as well?

Thanks in advance.

Ian.
