Our take on the Nikon MC-DC2

Connect the Nikon MC-DC2 to your compatible tripod-mounted digital SLR camera and say goodbye to blurry images caused by a shaky hand. This wired remote lets you operate the camera's shutter remotely when taking photos at close range, or in any other situation where the slightest movement of the camera can cause image blurring. You can also lock the shutter for taking long-exposure photos.

excellent shutter release

Anonymous from Nashville, Tennessee on 1/28/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the shutter release for the Nikon D5000. Defintiely check your specs because Nikon makes a couple and the first model I bought didn't work. This one works great. It is easy to use, eliminates any camera shake and is as responsive as the shutter release on the body of the camera. Excellent product.




Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Nikon MC-DC2 Wired Remote Control is designed to remotely control the shutter-button of select Nikon digital SLR cameras. The MCD-DC2 features an attached 41" cord terminated by a proprietary connector which plugs into the camera's Accessory Terminal. The MC-DC2 can be used to:

  • operate the camera remotely when taking photographs at close range and in other situation in which the slightest camera movement would produce blurring
  • keep the shutter-release button pressed for long exposures (bulb) and burst photography

Operation: The camera responds to the shutter-release button on the MC-DC2 as it would to the shutter-release button on the camera body. The MC-DC2 shutter -release button can be locked in the full-pressed position by sliding the lock to the "Hold" position.
