    Comments about ioShutter Shutter Release Cable for Nikon DSLR:

    I was going to purchase a Nikon MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord for my D800, but I saw a review for this in an Apple magazine and I was intrigued. I bought it because (like the rest of the world) I am permanently attached to my iPhone. Once I saw how simple and full-featured the ioShutter app is, I never looked back. It has more triggering options than the more expensive Nikon remotes, but most people will be able to get away the free ioShutter Lite app. I mainly use it for product photography, but it comes in handy as well when I'm shooting long-expsoure images, plus I have my iPhone screen to light the way. To boot, the carrying bag doubles as a lens cloth!

      Comments about ioShutter Shutter Release Cable for Nikon DSLR:

      1) I have a Nikon D7000, and the product works as advertised with my camera.

      2) ioShutter is a good choice for night photogreaphy because once it's connected you can use your iPhone to control and time your camera's shutter. You don't need a flashlight. It's also a good choice for short term time lapse photography.

      3) The cable is expensive. There may be a less expensive alternative.

      3) I originally had problems connecting the cable to my phone because my phone case was keeping the cable from fully seating in the phone's headphone jack. I had to modify the case in order to get a functional connection.

      ioShutter's email support staff was very responsive. They worked with me to detect the problem.
