Is there a reasonably decent wireless remote for a Sony A-100?

I would like one for wildlife photos with a range of around 15 - 30 feet.

Am I dreaming?

trouble with remotes is sensor is on front of camera so u need to be facing it

there is a way round it though but it involves buying radio gear, i use it on my kite and i can fire shutter from 300 foot regardless of if its facing me nor not

another way to get around not having to face the camera is to mount a cheap bicycle mirror on your tripod so that the remote beam can be activated from behind the camera into the mirror and reflect into the camera. I use the el-cheapo remote, five dollars from deals galore, and this method works flawlessly.
