The new Nikon D70s ought to work quite well, even on a one week camping trip.
Battery life is nearly endless; the Rebel XT's new smaller battery is nonetheless still good for 600 pictures a charge, compared with perhaps 200 on a typical digital camera. The D70S's new battery extends this to a delirious extreme: each charge can power the camera for a staggering 2,500 photos. You can go weeks between charges.
Remote photography was one of the last strongholds of film cameras.
