Nikon 4645 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon ML-3 Compact Modulite Remote enables remote control for two separate channels via an infrared LED beam, providing automatic camera operation from a distance of up to about 26-feet (8 m). Auto triggering, delayed shutter release, single and continuous shooting are possible. It can also fire the camera remotely when a subject moves between the transmitter and receiver, for surveillance or wildlife photography.

The ML-3 is designed so the transmission button operates the same way as the shutter release button of the camera. Lightly pressing on the transmission button turns on the camera's exposure meter and starts autofocus detection.

To connect the ML-3, the receiver is inserted and locked into a camera's or Speedlight bracket's accessory or hot shoe and is then connected to the remote terminal on the camera with its remote cord. The camera is fired when the transmitter is pointed in the direction of the receiver's sensor and the transmit button is pushed. Recommended camera settings are: C or M focus modes, Programmed Auto (P/Ps), Aperture-Priority Auto or Shutter-Priority Auto, L or H film advance modes.

    Nikon 4645 reviews

    ML-3 Compact Modulite Remote is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but has some design issues This worked as described, with the problems mentioned in other reviews. The main problem for me is that it takes up the hot shoe, so taking pictures with a flash (even the pop-up flash of my D700) causes a problem. If the ML-3 would have included the bracket to attach to the camera I would have given it more stars, for the price that should have been doable. Another missing feature is the ability to lock the shutter for longer exposures (greater than 30 seconds). For that, you will still need something like the MC-30. As others have pointed out, one has to aim the remote very precisely. Overall, a pricey piece of equipment that is not really well designed - something I can't say about any other Nikon piece of equipment I own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a pure must I haven't tried to go long distance with this remote yet, but I think it would probably do a pretty good job. By having the option of rotating the sensor that goes into the hot shoe, allows the photographer an opportunity to finely tune and perfect each picture! Tracy and I are going down to Costa Rica and I can't wait to test it out in the rain forest! The cheaper remote that syncs up to the camera is great as long as you stand in front of it, but this one is amazing because as long as that sensor is aimed where ever the remote is, it is ready to fire away, and it does so, I haven't seen a lack for speed on this at all!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Newer is NOT always better than Older I still have my 1977 ML-1 for my Nikon F2's,F2A's and F2AS's and it works better than the ML-3 I just bought. The ML-3 will only work if you point the remote directly at the sensor and you are limited to 10 degrees off central axis. This would mean awkward-looking self portraits and group photos where the photogarpher includes himself (What's he holding?!). The ML-1's remote can be in your pocket or bounced against the wall and it will trigger the sensor. This is not possible with ML-3. The ML-1 is effective to 60 meters (197 ft.!) while the ML-3 is only good for 8 meters max(26.2 ft.). The only advantage is the smaller size and the low power consumption plus new features.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took a little fiddling but works great I had to fiddle with the setup between the buttons and my camera configuration before I understood how to make use of all the functions. You need to be in C or M on your camera body for the camera to fire consistently. However, for my purposes, it works fantastically. I have been using it at ranges within 20 feet so I don't know the max range but I haven't had any problems with it so far. I recommend this item only if you need to be inside your frame on a regular basis, or if you are doing a lot of remote shooting. If you are simply worried about camera shake, an MC-20 is MUCH less expensive and just as effective. If you use a flash on your hotshoe, realize you need an accessory bracket (not included) to mount the ML-3 on, because the IR receiver takes up your hotshoe (uses it as a mount).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! This remote control does a little more than just you click and it fires, it behaves the same way as if you're pressing the shutter release on the camera, meaning that it'll focus again if you want it to. Also it has the delay function so it gives you enough time to hide the remote control in your hand. The receiver can be mounted so that you can be either in front of or behind the camera. Although it's kinda big, I think the functions of it are well thought out, and it's enjoyable to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is worth the money It is great to use when you need the camera to be rock solid.I love the fact you can rotate the receiver so you can activate it from any angle. Look at is as a 24 foot cable release. Its uses are endless.There are 2 or 3 features I have not used yet and I still think it is worth buying.Plus I have used it to get in the picture too. Problems Encountered: I have had it for a year and have not had any problems. Items I Recommend: The Nikon bracket to hold it next to camera to free up the hot shoe

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, a big improvement I bought this out of frustration because I wasn't happy with either the durability or reliability of the MB-12 trigger shutter remote. Two of them had failed due to exposed wires and the third had an internatl failure while I was in the middle of a shoot halfway across the country from my home. That was it. I bit the bullet and upgraded to the ML-3. I've only used it once but it has performed as advertised. Some people have criticized its direct line-of-sight infrared aiming, but you should understand that the receiver head pivots, so you can line the transmitter up with it easily no matter where you're standing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now be in the shot, not behind it... This has several modes, including single, continuous, delayed single (timer) and motion activated. The delayed mode is great for taking self or group photos, but unlike the self portrait theres no racing to get into position. One can activate the remote then hide it and the photo is taken about 3 seconds later, with the LED indicating the ready. Just like the shutter on the camera, pressing the remote lightly activates the auto-focus. The remote can also change from single to continuous (be sure to set the camera for continuous) to delay. The delay mode only takes single shots. The trigger mode sets up an IR beam between the remote (which can be tripod mounted) and the camera. When the beam is broken the camera will wither take one shot or continuous pending on the setting on the remote. There are 2 channels so you can have 2 cameras that can be activated independently. The receiver can be rotated 360 degrees so the user can be next to or behind the camera but not have to worry about reaching the end of a cable. Ive used the remote at over 40 feet but you must have the IR receiver facing you (the remote) and ambient light shining into the receiver limits its range. The remote is NOT brighter than the sun and has a fairly narrow beam spread If you want to use a flash (including the built-in) get a flash bracket as this mounts on the hot shoe.
