Nikon MC-30A Reviews

Heavy Duty Release

By David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-12

This heavy duty remote release cable works flawlessly on my Nikon. 31-1/2 inches long, it's the ideal length for Tripod mounted Cameras. The shutter lock feature is perfect for long & time exposures.

Good remote

Solid and reliable.

Most useful shutter release

By Edward

Particularly useful when taking panoramas where a fair number of images are required and the camera is mounted on a nodal head causing the exposure button to be relocated frequently. This switch also eliminates any shaking caused by manually pressing the shutter release. Plenty long enough.

Essential for reducing camera shake.

I purchased the remote trigger release to table top work. When using with slow-shutter speeds and the mirror-up, the remote trigger reduces camera shake.

It's simple, flawless and I love it.

Simple functionality

There are other more complicated releases that cover more bases, but this one does exactly what I want it to do...without batteries! The only thing that gives me pause is the fact its screw-in connector is plastic.

Better than the inexpensive aftermarket.

Easier to attach and remove than the aftermarket wireless release. More importantly, it does not cause my D850 to do strange things. My big complaint is that the lock slider is very easy to accidentally engage.

Does the job.

Purchased for night photography. Simple to use. Works great. Well built. Doesn't feel cheap.

I have had an MC 30 for many years and when I saw that my D810 had a 10 pin socket for the release I was quite pleased. However, whenever I connect my MC30 to the D810, the Info screen will not come on and I cannot change my ISO. Will I have the same problem with the MC30A?
Asked by: James
Yes, connection issues of are the culprit, glad it worked.

The Nikon MC-30A cannot trigger video. Check out the CamRanger Wireless Transmitter for a product that has this feature: http://bhpho.to/1fD093D

question

Does this work with a Nikon D610? It is not listed in the description
Asked by: Leigh B.
Unfortunately, no, the Nikon MC-30A Remote Trigger Release is not compatible with the Nikon D610. It is only compatible with Nikon DSLR cameras which use the Nikon 10-pin remote terminal. The Nikon D610 DSLR camera uses the DC2 remote terminal, and as such, it would require the Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord, B&H# NIMCDC2, for use on the Nikon D610 DSLR camera.

question

Can this remote be used to start/stop video recording on a Nikon D500 body?
Asked by: IVAN
Possibly, if you program the shutter button to start and stop recording when camera is in live view movie mode (menu G1, movie custom control assignment). I haven't tried it but NikonUSA product forum provided this workaround for the D800.

How does the MC-30 differ from the MC-30A? It appears the rotating ring to screw it in is beefer which would be a plus since the MC-30 is very hard to screw in.
Asked by: Chris
The MC30-A ring is much more user friendly, easier to attach.
