    Nikon MC-30A reviews

    MC-30A Remote Trigger Release is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 156.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great improvement This simple remote release works exactly as intended on my D200 and D800. It is identical to the earlier MC-30 in all respects, except for its enlarged attachment collar. What an improvement that is - the small collar on the MC-30 was sometimes difficult to secure and, if you inadvertently tightened it just a little bit too much, could be very difficult to undo. The larger collar on the MC-30A is easy to both secure and undo. I use the release principally during landscape photography, with the camera on a tripod and in mirror-up mode. My MC-30A replaces a MC-30 which has operated perfectly for many years, and continues to operate flawlessly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon MC-30 remote cable shutter release I bought this (my second one) to use with camera mounted on a tripod (as John Gerlach and common sense would advise). Like all Nikon products (I admit to bias, having used Nikon since having to give up my Minolta XE-7), this works very well, indeed. It fits beautifully and does what it is meant to do. Several improvements since my early one (bought when D300 came out and was purchased): the line-up marker is now nicely white, easily seen, and the locking collar has been enlarged, making it much easier to screw tight for security. I am very happy with this remote cable release and with BHPhoto's service; both are gratefully acknowledged.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikon MC-30A Remote Shutter Release Cabl I use the Nikon MC-30A remote shutter release cable when I mount my Nikon D800 on a tripod. It's sturdy, lightweight, and functions just like the shutter release on the camera. Pressing the remote release button halfway down causes the camera to autofocus, just like pressing the on-camera shutter release. And pressing it all the way down releases the shutter. The only issue I've encountered occurs when I screw down the thumbwheel on the ten-pin connector to secure it to the camera. Even though I only tighten the thumbwheel finger tight, it can be extremely difficult to unscrew using your fingers alone. Otherwise the cable release works as expected and is a helpful tool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT I purchased this product to work with my Nikon D850. It works just exactly as it is supposed to. Please note that if you use the shutter to focus, then this trigger will focus also with trigger release depressed halfway. However, if you use back-button-focus, then the trigger will NOT focus for you, i.e. you will have to use the back button to first focus then depress the trigger to take the shot. Works well and as intended. This trigger release costs a little more than a third-party release but I always feel better using Nikon products with my expensive Nikon camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cable Release For years I've been using an inexpensive third party remote cable release because I didn't want to pay the higher price for the Nikon release. Well, as with many other bit and pieces of photography spend cheap, you get cheap. I received a B&H gift card for Christmas and decided to treat myself and buy the Nikon release as the other brand was giving me trouble and, with a very small release button, was hard to use in winter with gloves on. It was a good decision as the Nikon release is very well designed and constructed. It has a positive feel and response so that you know you've released the shutter even with mirror lock-up and wearing gloves. Another lesson learned.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just What I Wanted, A Little Expensive. I wanted a wired shutter release that did not need batteries, and had a screw-in plug so it wouldn't fall out. This is the only one I could find that met this criteria. Simple push button operation, with a lock for bulb or multiple exposures. Because it is a Nikon accessory, it costs probably 2-3 times as much as an equivalent off-brand device. It works well though, and as long as it keeps working, I'll forgive the higher price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sorry, does not last These rather expensive triggers work well and are easy to use. I've used them for years. I have had a number of the MC-30a, which are much easier to mount than the old MC-30. I'm an outdoor and nature photographer, so these get a lot of use. The main problem I've had is that after some time (sometimes not very long) the wire connection near the plug fails, and it no longer functions. You can get it to work if you move the wire around near the base of the plug, but obviously a connection has nearly failed. One failed after just 6 months of use. They are probably fine with lighter use. YMMV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary accessory This is a great add to your camera system for 'on tripod' picture taking. I lost my old one and ended up using the shutter delay option to take pictures of the recent blood moon. I ordered this soon afterward to those steady camera pictures. Works great. easy, and you can always argue that something like this should be cheaper based on what it does and what it's made out of. Also, in the future, there's no reason why this cannot be a wireless accessory without any additional 'bolt on' parts. That would be nice.
