I'm trying to shoot some pano shoots with a D70. But I'm not sure how to lock the exposure while using the remote control. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Set it on manual, set the spped and aperture as indicated by one of the other modes and shoot away.

That's what I did, put into Manual and set shutter speed etc., and ended up with different exposure for my shoots due to different amount of available light. I don't know how to lock exposure when using the remote control.

You can either lock the exposure which means give each frame the same exposure which is what setting the camera will do or exposure each shot according to the light in which case you put it into any of the automatic modes. The advice for panos is generally to lock the exposure as you'll get less variation between the shots than by using an auto exposure.

I know about what locking the exposure will do. My original question was "How to lock the exposure when using the remote control to take pictures?"

Also set the WB to the setting you are in. i.e. cloudy, fluorescent, ect...

As locking the exposure means using the same shutter speed and aperture for each shot using manual will do this. If the light is different shot to shot then yes the exposures will be different. One suggestion I've read is to use a bigger overlap between shots as this creates a more even transition.

Using auto white balance may also make changes shot to shot so setting this to an appropriate setting is a good suggestion.
