Nikon ML-3 Overview

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.

question

Can I use this remote control for long exposure photography (in Time or Bulb setting)?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, Nikon does not indicate that the Nikon ML-3 Modulite Remote Control Set can be used for long exposure or bulb photography, and does not indicate its usage for long-exposure photography in the instruction manual. As it is an infrared remote, I would not recommend this remote for this usage. A better option would be a radio remote that would still use the 10-pin remote terminal connection and is stated for long exposure use. One I have personally used and recommend would be the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon w/10-Pin Connection, B&H # VERWN1, which uses a two-button press system to start/stop a bulb exposure, and does not require you to continuously hold down the button for exposure needs. Radio remotes also benefit by having longer range, not having issues with obstacles blocking signal transmission, and in this case, is also more economical compared to the Nikon remote. http://bhpho.to/JAV1uQ

Can I start and stop video recording on my D800e with this?
Asked by: Josephus
Yes, if you assign the shutter button to start and stop video, then you can use the ML-3 to control video. Just go into the menu in CUSTOM SETTINGS of the camera and assign the shutter button.

question

is this remote compatible with the Nikon D300S?
Asked by: Anonymous
Short answer: Yes. Better answer, because this is the second is this compatible with my camera question I've received an email about for this product: Nikon has a lot of great information on their web site. Why trust a stranger when you can ask the source? Go to the product page for your camera. If it's an older model you may have to use their search feature to get to it. Once on that product page, click accessories. You will see all then Nikon products compatible with your camera. You can narrow it down by type...wireless triggers, for instance. This model and several others are listed for the D300S. That's where I found your answer.
