From the N80 manual: "Infrared films cannot be used since an infrared sensor is used for the detection of the film frame position."

Fitting infrared attachment on D3100


The ML-L3 cannot be used with the D3100. An alternative wireless remote is this one. It's not an external IR port but a radio receiver.

I want to use my nikon d80 with my sb600 and as a infrared remote


The Nikon D80's shutter can be released via handheld "IR" or infrared remote. You can buy them online or in most camera shops. The Nikon branded one will cost the most, but really doesn't perform a whole lot better than the $5 third party versions. The nice thing about IR remotes is that only a transmitter is needed. There's a built in IR receiver on the front of the camera body, and as long as it is not obstructed - or too far from the transmitter, it will work fine.

The SB600 will fire if setup to work correctly when the shutter is released "normally" - triggering with a IR remote will not affect the SB600 flash whether mounted on the camera or if in "commander mode". The D80 manual has details on pg 38 to operate in both the instant and time delayed IR operation modes and should be consulted as Nikon does not allow copy and paste from the manual - and they make use of graphics for button functions.

When distances are too great for the IR remote, you'll need to go the route of an RF or radio frequency remote instead. Many of these will work at distance up to and even beyond 100 yards. They consist of a transmitter and receiver. The receiver can be mounted on the hot shoe of the camera or tethered via cable to the camera body. This is not the question you asked about, so I won't go into further detail - but only mention it as another way of doing the same thing from greater distances or when you can not be in front of the camera to access the IR receiver on the D80 body.

If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Thanks and good luck!

Good day! May I have some information for Nikon F80? Thank you.


The F80 was called the N80 in some parts of the world.

You can download the N80 manual from

I have a Nikon N80. I want to get a D5000. I have two Quantaray lenses for the N80. One is a 28-80mm af the other is a 70-300 af.I would like to know if the lenses will work. I know I will have no auto...


Yes, they will work. As you pointed out, they will not autofocus, but everything else will work, most importantly the exposure metering.

Bear in mind that the D5000 sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. The lenses will seem longer on the D5000, about the equivalent of 42-120mm and 105-450mm. This means that the shorter lens won't really be a wide-angle anymore, though the longer lens will now be a whopping telephoto.

How to use remote trigger to take a photo with Nikon D300


I'm going to assume you mean the ML-L3 remote. If I'm wrong, please post a comment specifying the remote you are using.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick remote fires the camera when you press the button on the release. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to let you hide your hand behind your back before it fires the camera.

The ML-L3 is an infrared remote, so it must be pointed in the general direction of the infrared receiver on the front of the camera.

MY CAMERA WILL NOT DO ANYTHING


If the camera will not allow the manual rewind function to work then the camera needs to come apart to get the film out. To do this and save the film it will have to be disassembled in an IR box (a special light tight box fitted with an Infrared camera so a tech can disassemble the camera without exposing the film. Many camera repair shops have the ability to do this.

I son't know how to turn a camera into an IR camera but I did find a website that shows you how to make a filter that allows you to take IR photos. You can make the filter yourself for free unless you don't have the items needed but then again the item needed are only a couple of dollars. Here is the link.

Setting to shoot black and white


No, you can reduce the saturation but not go mono, (in the parameters settings)
You will need to adjust the colour balance and convert to mono in photoshop (or similar)
There are quite a few articles on the web regarding shooting in IR with the rebel, best results can be obtained with a modification to the camera http://ghonis2.ho8.com/rebelmod.html (reversable by using a IR cut filter for non IR shots) as it contains quite a strong IR filter which means although it is possibler without modification exposures will be quite long with IR filters and focusing difficult as the auto wont work and you will be able to see very little trough the viewfinder once the IR filter is on.
Here are a few articles, they may not relate to your exact model but all the eos cameras are somewhat similar.

people who will mod the camera for you.
http://www.lifepixel.com/ (also sell replacement sensor filters)

Im sure there are many others.

Best of luck

Does my Nikon D200 have built-in filters? or do I need to buy the Cokin filter system?


Your camera doesn't have any filters built in, but you can simulate a lot of the filter effects in post-processing. You would be advised to have polarizing filters for your lenses, and possible neutral density graduated fiters (which do work in the Cokin System). Those are difficult to do without.

Does the W1 have infrared abilities?


The Sonys with Nightshot are best at IR, IMHO. The W1 does not have this feature. I imagine it could take IR pics in Manual mode, but the exposures would have to be so long that picture quality would suffer to an unacceptable degree, IMO. The V1 has nightshot, and the price on them has come way down since the V3 was introduced. If you want to get into IR, I suggest a V1.
