    The MC-DC2 remote cord is very reliable and so easy to use right off the box. Just plug it in and fire away. Reliable in a sense that it hasn't misfire yet. In my case, it is more of a challenge to open the accessory connector cap of my D90 than to use this at all.

    Due to its size, it is convenient enough to carry around with you in the back pack. It is so small so light and it doesn't take alot of space. Best thing is, it doesn't need a battery to power it up. The three foot long cord is just enough that if let go from a tripod mounted camera, it will only dangle to its side thus tripping from it is remote if not impossible.

    Durability wise, it is made of hard plastic and seemed good enough. Like anything else, it will need tender care in order for it serve you a long time.

    This remote release cord has one botton. If you're looking for simplisity and reliability, and the only need is for it to remotely fire your camera to eliminate the vibration, then this is for you. Best use for low light long exposure shots.

    There really is nothing wrong I can say about this product except that if you have a big hand, you may find it hard to grip due to its size.

    Great product for the price.

    Using this device is very tricky with the new D7000 and an L Bracket. There is very little room to fit the remote and it is especially difficult in a portrait mode. Returned it for the ML-L3 wireless remote that works great since the new D7000 has sensors in the front and the rear of the camera.

            My order was promptly taken care of. I received it in less than a week via B&H's fast shipping. I certainly will continue to do business with them. In fact, I recommended to a family member and they ordered with the same results. Keep up the good work B&H!

              Comments about Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord:

              I bought this remote control for my Nikon D7000. I was needing this accessory because I like to shooting in low light situations using my tripod. Even when you can use the timer in order to take the shot, sometimes is mandatory the use of a remote control, because it helps to take the shot exactly when you need it and as long as you need it (bulb mode). I use this accessory for night photography mainly. This remote control allows me to have remotely the same functions of the camera's shutter button, focusing half pressing and then take the shot fully pressed. Additionally the remote control has a lock switch, so I can take long exposure shots without any problem.

                Use this with a full spectrum D7000 for IR photowork and astronomical photos. Since there is no IR pulse emitted the photo is in no way affected by unwanted light. It also will not affect nearby astrophotgraphers. For use in conventional IR work it is quite handy while using Live View to lose camera shake. Exposure lock for timed star photos very helpfull as well.

                        This release cord is much better than the less expensive third party ones. I have one of those and the release lock sticks and that's very annoying. The one on the Nikon release does not, -it works properly. The Nikon release also feels much sturdier.

                        The only reason I didn't give it five stars is the price, -this wired release cord costs more than the Nikon infrared wireless release!

                        I use the MC-DC2 with a Nikon D7000, by the way.

                            I take many close-up wildlife shots, flowers, caterpillars, etc. Must use a tripod. Trigger on remote I can keep very handy in my pocket. Easy, Easy, Easy.

                              I use this remote with a D7100.

                              I own both the ML-L3 (IR remote) and this one. I originally thought that the ML-L3 would be all I needed, but that remote is basically only good for single shots.
                              Since I like to bracket shots for HDR, I needed a remote that would allow for continuous shooting. The MC-DC2 works perfectly for continuous shooting.

                              The MC-DC2 works exactly like the camera shutter button. It even works when you push it halfway in for focusing.

                              Excellent.
