    Which cord


    Hi Froggy
    Another possibility for avoiding camera shake when doing macro photography on a tripod is Self timer (e.g. set to 2 or 5 seconds) in combination with Exposure delay mode which on my D300 camera is menu item d9 under the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.
    The exposure delay mode delays the exposure to one second after the mirror has flipped up, in that way avoiding camera shake from the mirror slap.

    But it depends on whether your camera model has this feature. Which camera model do you use ?

    For shutter release on a distance I use a third party Wireless Remote Control, but I cannot recommend that model.
    Today I would buy the genuine Nikon one, or just a cord as you suggest yourself.
    Via Google or on eBay you can make a search on Nikon Remote Cable Release + your Camera model name ... and another search on Nikon Wireless Remote Control + your Camera model name.
