As usual, the first step is to cut the foam inside the case so the camera 'floats' within when the case is closed up. Ideally, no part of the camera touches the inside of the case directly.

As you can see, the D700 with grip is quite tall and there is almost no clearance between the top and bottom of the camera, and the inside of the case. Luckily, the function of the blimp does not seem to have been adversely affected in this case.

The depth of the camera is also potentially problematic, as the D700 pentaprism is quite deep and it almost touches part of the lens tube which protrudes slightly into the inside of the case.

The remote release system I ended up using is a Phottix Strato transmitter and receiver set. The Strato is single shot only - one cannot shoot bursts.
