    Nikon MC-36A reviews

    MC-36A Multi-Function Remote Cord is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most reliable intervalometer for Nikon Cameras. It's the best! I got my first MC-36A back when I purchase my first digital camera, a Nikon D200. My wife got a D7100 and needed a remote timer. Since the MC-36A only works on bodies with a 10 pin connector we got a Shutterboss. It had to be returned within the 30 days because it only worked sometimes. Then my wife upgraded to a D810 and to save money we went with the Shutterboss version. Within a short time the mirror up function wouldn't work with that remote but worked fine with my 10 year old MC-36A. All the knockoffs look and function the same and even have a power off function the Nikon doesn't have. But if you wont a reliable remote with intervalometer functions, Get the Nikon, you'll save money in the end.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from expensive but I would reccomend it. I bought this release to use mainly for astro-photography. I like the ease of connection to my camera's, D800, D3s,and D200 even in the dark. It has a large white triangle shaped marker to match up with the dot on the cameras. Once you plug it in, there's a fairly large knob that screws into the cable for a snug fit, I had no trouble with this. But even if somebody has trouble doing this. You may want to get one of those night lights. Mine fits around my head and it has a red led to keep your night vision. The cord itself uses fairly heavy rubber and seems well made. There were three things I didn't like, there is no off button when not in use, the plastic door that you slide to put in the batteries is somewhat flimsy, be careful, because since theres no off switch, I generally take out the batteries when I'm done. When your done using it, the manual tells you what to set it to ease battery drain-takes two AAA's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great upgrade from Nikon MC-20 10 pin connection had been reworked and is much easier to connect and unconnect. allows much greater control of multiple functions remotely from camera. I especially like to use it to photograph lightning as well as sports where multiple shots are needed. I am an entomologist and use the MC-36a to aid in macro photography. Well made. Functions are intuitive and easy to use. I recommend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review MC36A It is a great product with good features. But I don't understand why it doesn't have a power switch that you can turn it on or off. I think that is a design flaw.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as described I purchased a Vello Wireless remote but it had issues (shutter release button would stick down - caught under the housing). I replaced it with the MC-36A and have not looked back. As usual, the brand name hardware costs a little more but works well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big improvement I use the MC36A for timed long exposures.So far I find a big improvement has been made with a new larger screw in linkage to the camera. It was far too small before and consequently too finicky.It remains to be seen if the cord itself will hold up better in really cold temperatures without pulling away near the top.Can't do without it though and the MC36A is an improvement over the older model.
