Been looking around Amazon for a wireless remote shutter release for the Nikon D300s but all I'm seeing for wireless remotes is for entry level DSLR's. Anyone know wireless remotes that work for the D300s?

I have successfully used a Hänel pro remote control on my D300. Should fit the 10-pin connector of your D300s just fine.

I have a phottix cleon II, works well and pretty good range, works on pretty much any camera because you buy it with the connection specific to your camera

For either of these remotes can you have the shutter stay open for longer than 30 seconds?

That is called bulb mode on your D300, I dont really think it is the remote that has to do this.

I'm back after recovering from a terrible cold and cough.

If you're still looking and your main concern is being able to have exposures over 30 seconds, I have the ML-L3 ($15) which works wonderfully. It's basic, but it does the job well.

The ML-3 does, the ML-L3 does not

The D90 and D7000 both have a mode that you can set for the ML3 so the shutter can stay open for extended periods.

I'm not sure if the D300/s would have the same feature, but it would seem reasonable to expect it.

The IR remote feature is such a good thing in my cameras that I'm surprised the more expensive ones don't have it. The ML3 only costs the same as a cable release and works on all my Nikons - elegant and simple.
