This weekend I had some spare time and decided to extract some juice from my brain.

I don't know why, camera manufacturers think that the only use for our IR remote is taking a self-portrait,facing the camera...

What about us, that like to take Macros or shoot birds ???

While they begin to manufacture cameras withtwo IR sensors (one in front, one behind)... we have to survive.

I managed to build this "mirror" with a piece of a mini-CD and it works superbly... and only weights a few grs.

Hope you like it

Well, the idea i so simple that needs no translation...

Excuse my english... I'm not a native speaker

As the D-70 has only one IR sensor (in front of the camera) you can't use the remote from behind the camera, so, using the things I had at home: a piece of aluminium, a small and useless CD.... I bended the aluminium so it could stay under the rubber band and Iglued (Loctite)a section of the CDto createa mirror for the IR ray.

This way I can use my ML-L3 remotefrom behind the camera OUTSIDE MY HOUSE (in a house the IR ray can bounce on windows, furniture, etc and this is not so necessary) at a distance of 3m without any problem.

Hope this helps

Regards
