    But the only one out there involves voiding warranties to get full functionality. :mad:

    What if you scrapped an IR remote and made a little wire boom with a sticky pad and the transmitter stuck to the front of the d70 (where the reciever is, duh :p) then ran that to the shutter controls in the grip? Holds batteries, no tampering inside the cam, should work perfecto! If I'm wrong, LMK. But I don't think I am, even though I know shit all about electronics :hs:

    edit: wow, guess they already do lol. http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1111529093.html why does this void warranty?
