Nikon ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control (Infrared) USA

B&H # NIMLL3 Mfr # 4730
You Pay: $19.95
Product Highlights
  • Wireless Remote Shutter Release
  • Minimizes Vibrations
  • Good for Close-ups & Time Exposures

The Nikon ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control (Infrared) is for use with the following Nikon cameras: D40, D40X, D50, D60, D70, D70S, D80, D90, D600, D3000, D5000, D3200, D5100, D7000, Coolpix P6000, P7000, P7100, N65, N75, Coolpix 8400, 8800, Pronea S, Nuvis S & Lite Touch Zoom Cameras, Nikon 1 J1, Nikon 1 J2 and Nikon 1 V1. It acts as a wireless shutter release capable of instantly triggering the shutter without disturbing the camera, up to a distance of approximately 16' (4.87 m) in front of the camera. The remote can work from behind the camera as well, however its range is not as long. It is recommended for taking pictures of subjects that are difficult to approach, or to minimize vibration for close-ups and time exposure, and it is powered by a CR-2025 3v battery (included). The ML-L3 supports the bulb exposure camera setting making it a worthwhile accessory for shooting long time exposures for low-light photography or unusual daylight effects.

The ML-L3 supports the bulb exposure camera setting making it a worthwhile accessory for shooting long time exposures during low-light photography sessions, or for unusual daylight effects.

When the ML-L3 remote control is used in M mode, users can select '- -' as the shutter speed. At this setting, the shutter opens when the shutter-release button on the ML-L3 remote control is pressed (2 seconds after the button is pressed in delayed remote mode) and remains open until the remote-control shutter-release button is pressed a second time (maximum exposure time is 30 minutes). Nikon recommends using a fully-charged EN-EL3 battery or an optional EH-5 AC adapter when using long exposures. For information regarding using the ML-L3 with flash please see the camera's user manual. Basically, depress the timer 3x to get it ready, press to start the shot and step away. Come back and press the button again and it stops the shot.

    Every year I'm in charge of the family photo at our reunion. I'm always running to and from my camera. I finally decided to get a remote. I had no idea how easy it would be to use and how inexpensive it was. I wish I'd purchased it a long time ago. The only negative is my family doesn't get to laugh at me running into the photo, and I forgot to not have my hand (with remote) so obviously pointed at the camera. If I could change one thing about the actual remote I would have a way to safely attach it to my camera. Its so small I'm afraid I'll lose it.

    I purchased this remote for my D5000. It's simple enough to use...set the release mode on your camera and press the button on the remote....only problem is, if you are trying to shoot from behind your camera, the sensor will not pick it up (or so has been in my experience. So far this has not been too much of an issue for me as most of the pictures i've been taking using the remote are just to avoid camera shake and i can just stand to the side and point it more directly at the sensor.

    Overall, I'm pleased enough with it....wasn't expensive and helps me keep my photos sharp, however would be much nicer if you could use it 360 degrees around your camera.

      Works fine & the lithium battery should last a long time. What I found out about my 5100 is that the shutter release does not stay in remote mode for more than a minute.

          This item works great to get rid of shake and allow for portraits with the family. Great also for macro and landscape photography, Usual Nikon quality wrapped up in a small package. Well worth the investment.

              This wireless remote control works as advertised with my Nikon DS3200. It will allow me to eliminate vibration on longer exposures when photographing the moon, planets and star fields.

                      I've had mixed results using this with my Nikon D3200. It often seems to having trouble picking up the signal even within a few feet of the front of the camera, with little or no success behind the camera. Overall I expected this to be much more effective.

                              The Nikon ML-L3 works as intended and has decent range, which I estimate 15 - 20 feet. Just remember to set your command dial to the remote icon (D610) ! No instructions included but quickly found info on the web.

                                Unlike the cheaper alternative I first bought, this works perfectly with my D3200.

                                I purchased this product because I was interested in taking self portraits, and I often found myself using timer mode to capture shots that requires a still camera. With this tiny device, all of this is made trivial. It was very easy to use; I didn't have to follow any setup instructions. All that I had to do was put my camera in remote shutter release mode and it worked seamlessly--autofocus and everything.I highly recommend this product to any photographer of any skill level. After all, it's only $ bucks.

                                  Pretty good little tool. I bounce it off glass to reflect to the front of the camera

                                    This is the third remote I have purchased for my gear. I will continue to lose them, but will continue to buy them at such a great cost.
