The primary use is for an F100. It works very well and is actually quite sensitive so be careful while depressing that shutter release button. The only gripe, like some others have mentioned, is the length of the cord... another foot or two would be nice.

I use this cable release with my D3 and am continually frustrated with the tiny ring to screw it into the camera. My fingers may be larger than most, but this issue would be easily solved with a ring at least twice the current diameter. The cord needs to be securely attached to ensure a connection and also to avoid continually falling out. The designers need to use the equipment themselves to avoid getting tripped up with these simple design flaws.

Very good idem to have in your kit especially for portrait work, though I would love a longer cord and the extensions are very expensive. Hopefully soon an updated model with dedicated refocus control?
I has a couple old style Nikon MC30 remotes for my D300 and D700 and honestly, they were a pain. Tough to get threaded and you needed tiny little girl hands to get id screwed all the way, and I adapted a rubber washer on them for grip. I got a new D800, and having worn my last old style remote out by putting camera in bag still attached, I ordered the "new" style. What a dream! Added is a grip/spin wheel and the threads actually match. Its a five second attachment now. Pricey, but worth it!
The remote release does what it's supposed to do. It is reliable and easy to store. Items like this are very good if they work every time and this one does. A little on the expensive side, but you only buy one and it should last a long time
I bought this product to carry with me when wanting to travel light. I have a problem with the attaching it to the camera body. It is quite difficult to screw into as one has to push down while turning. Also after it has been attached it has a tenancy to loosen and disconnect from the camera body.
The MC-30 is a necessity for eliminating shake for long tripod exposures. It is the least expensive of the Nikon shutter releases.
THis is the second time I've bought this product. I was using it so often that I left it attached to the camera all the time and I just plain wore it out. Don't recommend leaving it attached all the time (I won't be doing that any more - too much unnecesary stress on the cable), but this is a great product for the price.
SImple idea! Use it anytime you have the camera on a tripod and want the sharpest image. I have used mine for macro shots as well as astrophotography. It also allows for the photographer to stand back and use live-view during other shooting. It is a bit expensive but it can help you get a sharper image. Updated version of the good ol' cable release.
Photographing birds and other wildlive within a blind. it's quiet and easy to use. It's a NIKON .'nuff said!
The release works very well but! It's difficult to screw into the camera and after a while the insulation tore at the camera end exposing the wires. Other people have also had this problem. It's poorly designed but there are no other choices.
