    MC-DC1 Remote Cord is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 140.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I am using this on my D80. Works well - eliminating camera shake on a tripod. I have a wireless remote as well so thought I could use that instead of the cable - but for that you must be somewhat in front of the camera. I recommend anyone trying to decided between the cable remote or the wireless remote - to go with the cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to. I have the remote release attached via a bright purple rubber band to the handle on the tripod head. (A bit cheesy but works well.) It's ready to press the second I can get a critter in the view finder. There's a warning notice saying that the cord contains lead. Therefore, the photographer should not chew on the cord - if for some reason you are possessed to do so. I secure the cord to the tripod head handle with a black twist em, primarily to keep the cord from getting tangled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Must Have Accessory This remote works wonders. The only downfall, and its only a downfall for some, is that the cord can be too short for the distance your working (Obviously a problem with any corded device, not really this ones fault). The stop shutter feature as part of the remote is fantastic. Very solidly built. If your looking for a remote this one is one to check out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little gadget This little remote cord does exactly what it's supposed to do. Even though there's nothing fancy about it, it's easy to connect, easy to use, very comfortable to hold and operate, has plenty of cable, and works like a charm. Now I can finally shoot in bulb mode!! I never really knew if I needed this accessory or not, and went without for a long time... But now that I have one, I wish I had bought it a long time ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good remote, a bit overpriced I use this for portrait and night photography. It is better than the wireless remote because you can hold it half way down to get your camera to automatically focus, where the wireless one just takes the shot with no focus. It is a bit plasticy and feels somewhat cheap, but that is what you get for such a low price. The cable is sufficient for most of my work and hangs almost to the floor when my camera is set on a tripod. The product works well and you never miss a shot because you didn't aim the wireless remote at the sensor correctly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't be happier! Received my MC-DC1 Remote Cord and set about to giving it a rigorous workout in the Anza Borrego Desert and am happy to report that it handled beautifully. No problems at all. My only gripe is the cord could be a tad longer, but after having numerous problems with the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Controller. A functional (albeit) tempermental device, I found the MC-DC1 to be perfect for those photographs I want to take in low light. Just don't forget a tripod to go with it. For me the MC-DC1 is money well spent and a must have in any camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from unusual use for a remote control I have a stroke which paralyzed my right hand, I want to enjoy my nikon slr, but shooting with my right hand is out of question. One day suddenly an idea came into my mind, how about a remote control to shoot my camera? I hesitate between the electronic and mechanical. Since I want to do astrophotography I decide to go for a mechanical one. It works as expected. The only pro is it's dedicated for d80 and 70, if you want to upgrade you have buy another one with the new one. But that's for the future if I am able to upgrade.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superior performance Used for reducing camera shake for the most part in closeup and landscape photography, this item is far superior to the wireless remote trigger in that you don't need to be in front of the camera to use it effectively. The only drawback I find is that being corded there is a distance from camera limit.
