Nikon ML-L3 Overview

The ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control from Nikon is a wireless shutter release capable of instantly triggering the shutter of select Nikons, without disturbing the camera, up to a distance of approximately 16' / 4.87m 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. 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.

Long Exposure Shooting

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.

Nikon ML-L3 Reviews

Wireless remote control

By Allen
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-01

This device does a good job of releasing the shutter from a distance, but the camera de-activates the remote setting after a few minutes. Not good if you are waiting for a shy wildlife and you have to go to the camera to re activate the remote function. I know it is to save the battery, but I'd rather it stay on longer and I can change or charge the battery later - after I get the shot!

Two parts of any review: Business service & product. B&H is, as always, excellent. The remote works perfectly. It does have one flaw & thus 4 stars rather than 5. It has no way of attaching a a way to keep from being lost (e.g. a hole in the case through which a lanyard might be threaded). I have already lost one of the two I purchased, sad to say, when my scheme to attach a lanyard to a binder clip that I then attached to the remote failed on my second hike with it). Glad I bought two!

Great for long exposure shots!

The Nikon ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control is very helpful in taking timed and long exposure photos. It is lightweight and comes with a nifty little case.

Worked for 20 minutes

It worked when I first connected it to my camera which is a D3200 and took about 5 shots then stopped working. I've seen a lot of people say their battery didn't work, so I'm going to go buy another battery and try that. It had the plastic in it to reserve the battery supposedly but I guess that didn't really work. I will come back if that fixes it to leave another review.

Asked by: Richard
I am not personally familiar with the transmitter you asked about and have only used the Nikon ML-13 with several Nikon dslr cameras. As a suggestion you might contact Nikon and/or the transmitter manufacturer to determine compatibility. Hope this helps.

We're afraid not. The D850 is not listed as compatible with this unit. You could look at the Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon instead, B&H # VERWIIN. This will work with the D850. https://bhpho.to/2iXjovx

question

is it compatible with nikon j4?
Asked by: David N.
I don't believe it is. Nikon doesn't list any remotes for the J4 on their website. But there may be some that were discontinued that may work. Check with Nikon.It's works well for my old D3000, as long as you're in front of the camera body on the right side.
