ML-L3

Written By Tim, State of Jackson, CA on Sunday, May 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It works. But not all the time and not from very far away. Works best from within one foot away from my camera. I used it to get into the picture, but my arm was extended, point at my camera. It would not work from inside my light weight windbreaker pocket. The pre-flash signal when the camera fires. Wished it worked at distances of 25' and from a pocket. But for the price, it will work most of the time for slow shutter speeds.
Pros:
Small, easy to use. Fast service from Crutchfield.
Cons:
Does not always work, must be close to camera, and can not be used if covered by a pocket for concealment.

Hands free picture taking

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When you need to take a picture withoutand movement to the camera, and the self timer doesn't give you that moment you need captured, a wireless remote for your Nikon camera is the answer. From either in front or behind the lens a push of the button captures the image your after!!
Pros:
Small, compact and very easy to use.

This a great product. I use it with my D7000 on a tripod to eliminate vibration. This wireless remote is so much easier to use than the mechanical shutter release that I used with my previous camera.
Pros:
Compact, easy to use

None

A must have

Written By Pavel, Longmont, CO on Saturday, July 25, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you ever have taken a self timer picture you know why you need this little unit. Simply set up and focus your DSLR, join the rest of the people, tell them "Ready? 3-2-1, go" and press the button (hint: do not extend your arm towards the camera with the same expression on your face that you usually have when scanning TV channels looking for a football game, it will not look good on the picture; hide the remote hand low or behind someone). No more pictures with your back to the camera, caught running to your place. Also long exposure photography benefits from this, as you will not bump the camera operating it by hand. For the money nobody should be without one.
The remote is TINY, only a bit over an inch long, so look for it in your shipping carton. It hides in the popcorn to where I though they forgot to put it in.

Great Product but hunt for instructions

Written By Jeremiah, Fort Bragg, CA on Monday, February 16, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I sat down with this little remote shutter release and couldn't get the battery door open and couldn't get the shutter to fire. That is until I read the product description here that said you can select either immediate shutter release or a timed-release. That information drove me to the camera's instruction book and, in the index, I found the wireless instructions! It took seconds to make the appropriate settings and I could stand away from the camera and click away with this little wireless remote control. It works beautifully and is worth the small amount they charge for the device. Get it, you won't be disappointed.

Must-have Accessory

Written By Karl, Clifton, VA on Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works just great with my D90. Nice to have a non-tethered remote. Should have been included along with the D90 instead of it being an extra-cost (although pretty inexpensive) option.
