ML-L3 with Nikon D7000

At first, there was some head-scratching. The ML-L3 didn't come with an instruction manual. The instructions are in the Nikon D7000 Manual on page 80! I'll summarise it here (for Nikon D7000): 1) Press "MENU" button on camera body. Select the icon that looks like a camera (ie. "SHOOTING MENU"). 2) Scroll up or down until you find "Remote Control Mode", then press "OK". The default is "2s(seconds) Delayed Remote".

At first, there was some head-scratching. The ML-L3 didn't come with an instruction manual. The instructions are in the Nikon D7000 Manual on page 80! I'll summarise it here (for Nikon D7000): 1) Press "MENU" button on camera body. Select the icon that looks like a camera (ie. "SHOOTING MENU"). 2) Scroll up or down until you find "Remote Control Mode", then press "OK". The default is "2s(seconds) Delayed Remote". I chose "Quick-response remote" meaning if you use the ML-L3, the shutter will fire immediately. There is also a "Remote mirror-up" option for Mr. Fancy Photographer. Once you've decided which option you want, press "OK". I suggest you just select the "Quick-response remote" option and press "OK" coz you want to see immediate results, whether your ML-L3 works or not. Later on you can get fancy. Now, exit from the "MENU". 3) Now go to the "Release-Mode Dial", that knobby dual-dial thing on the top of the camera body that has the letters "S, CL, CH, Q, Timer icon, ML-L3 Remote icon and Mup" options. You have to press the "Release-Mode Dial lock release(!) black button just next to it to turn the "Release-Mode Dial" to the "ML-L3 Remote icon". Phew! So far so good! Stay with me now, buddy! :) Have a sip of water... 4) The Nikon D7000 has 2, yes TWO infra-red receivers! The FRONT receiver is just above the "D7000 logo" , and the REAR receiver is to the right of the "OK" button-wheel-thingamajig. What does this mean? You can be behind or infront of the camera when you use your ML-L3! 5) The ML-L3 is fantastic. I absolutely love it. Regards from Malaysia :)

I own the beautiful D3100 ...

I own the beautiful D3100 model. I was anxious to buy a wireless r/c for the camera because I always have to rely on the shutter button which can lead(s) to photo blurs. The only 'Con' is the certain model number for the wireless r/c is not compatible with my camera model...Disappointed! Ever thought about being more flexible and expanding?

It's a remote...

This is a remote shutter release, but keep in mind you need to be in front of your camera. Not really functional for remote control from behind camera, such as micro or night shots. Good for self portraits...

Nikon ML- L3 IR Review

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is a great LITTLE remote for travel photography. I am not sure if I going to keep the Nikon camera I have now so I did not want to spend a lot money on cable remote. This remote is perfect for me. I will put Velcro on the back so I won't loose it quickly.

Does what it's supposed to do

By

from Indiana  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

A first-time user, I found this gadget very easy to use. There's nothing to it: just one button to press, nothing else. I had to reference my camera manual as to the appropriate shutter-release settings for use with the ML-L3, but that's a piece of cake. It worked fine in bright daylight, too.

Inexpensive Solution

By

from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida USA  -  Professional

I purchased this remote for my daughter to use with the camera I previously purchased for her. I prefer to use electronic cable releases on my cameras, but this is just what she wanted so she can remotely fire the camera. She has used it in conjunction with her tripod to reduce camera shake. She loves this.
