To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Having recently replaced a battered and bruised tripod, I thought that replacing my untethered shutter release was a good idea. I placed the order and took delivery within a few days. What more can I ask for?
I've always thought paying that little bit extra for Nikon equipment was money well spent, and so far on first trial Ilthis would seem the case. The eemote feels well built and sturdy, the quality shines through. It literally is plug and play, or rather click.
Writing a full review would mean taking it out into the field, but so far it does exactly what I want it to do, that's operate and stand up to abuse.
Upgraded from a Bridge camera to a Nikon DSLR and soon realised that you can only prevent camera shake during long exposures by using this remote cord ( unlike my old Nikon FE 35mm film camera which allowed you to screw in a cable release ). The cable is long making the remote easier to use and can be locked when using the camera on the " bulb " setting for very long manual exposures.
A great little device to help you take super-sharp photos, when your camera is on a tripod (or securely fixed/clamped so it cannot move). The device fastens into a covered socket on the camera body. The initial fixing can be a little difficult but with a few practice goes it becomes easy. With the remote cord in place you can sit back and just press the button when you want a photo. I've found it great for taking star shots: after setting up the camera its just a matter of lying back on a recliner and pressing the button, and pushing it forward to clamp it on, then leaving for however long you require the exposure to be. The button can then be easily released to close the shutter. Its also been good for photographing birds in the garden: I focus the camera on the bird feeder, from the kitchen window and sit back. When a bird lands on the feeder press the button and you get the photo. A downside is the length of the cord limits the distance you can be from the camera, but its better than the infra-red devices which don't have this problem but have to be used from in from of the camera.
Sometimes simple is best, and having used the Nikon remote control version of the shutter release for a couple of years I bought this MC-DC2 wired version. I have to say I do prefer it. The remote version can be a bit flaky and does not always fire all the time however with this cable straight into the camera works perfectly each time on both my Nikons - so a big thumbs up for this :)
Ordered this and it came very quickly. Just choose the correct one to suit your camera model. Simply push plug into the socket on your camera, place it on a tripod and then away you go. I particularly like the lock switch which allows you to hold the shutter open for a long time exposure without having to hold the button down. Just flick the switch upwards to close the shutter. I have an infared transmitter as well but this is far more accurate and the lead is long enough to stand away from the camera. Great piece of kit no more camera shake on photos!
This purchase was a replacement for the one I broke when I dropped my camera! Fortunately camera fine, but broke the connection on my remote! Great product, speedy delivery, in original packing, all good.
Bought as a present so this review isn't going to be very technical (not much of a photographer myself) - recipient very pleased with this remote . He was using the remote button zapper but was frustrated because a) you have to be in front of camera to use it and b) you have to put the camera on a 'remote' setting which stopped him using some other settings. With the Nikon MC-DC2 remote cord he can sit comfortably using the viewfinder & take pictures using the setting he wants. Like other reviewers I feel I should mention the cord length (1 metre) - it could be longer. Went for Nikon rather than one of the cheaper options because it was a gift for a Nikon camera user.
