    I take it none of these work, or could be modified to trip an older, manual Nikon such as an FM or FE? Seems like they only support electronic interfaces on more 'modern' cameras.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    The motordrive, (MD-12 if I recall) for these camera does use an electronic trigger. I'm pretty sure that the plug is different from the current range of cameras, but I'm sure it could be somehow configured.

    Hadn't thought about the motor drive. Hadn't used one in the past because of the added weight and bulk to the kit, but I guess I might have to reconsider it if I want to go this route for remote tripping I guess.

    bob:

    i just went here:

    it would seem that you have to use a proprietary Nikon connector for the cable (3 pin configuration) . Perhaps you could swap out the Nikon connector for a 3.5 mm stereo plug instead, then you could make your own cable. Once you get the MD-12 in your possession it is easy to identify the pin operation

    It's getting confusing 'round here. A little like the Monty Python Australian skit. Let's all switch to Bruce !!
