As a landscape photographer who does 100% of my shooting on a tripod, I've always used a remote release. The Nikon MC-30 remote release I bought for this purpose several years ago has always performed like a champ through countless excursions and thousands of shots. The only complaint I ever had about the MC-30 was that it was hard to attach/detach during extreme cold weather. So, when I saw how Nikon had addressed that headache by putting he over-sized knob on their MC-30A unit, I thought they had finally gotten that remote release perfected., so I bought one earlier this year. HOWEVER..., after only using this "new & improved" unit for several months now, it has started to malfunction. When this happened on a recent sunrise shoot, I had to quickly dig out my old MC-30 unit to complete the shoot (Thank God I kept the old unit as a backup!). It appears that in their quest to improve what's been their best ever cable releases, Nikon did something to weaken the durability of the unit. Whatever the case, all I know is I can't trust the new MC-30A model again and will go back to my old MC-30 model. In fact, I'm sending the new MC-30A unit to Nikon so they can figure out what they did wrong to screw up what's always been a solid remote release cable (even though it is hard as heck to get the old MC-30 unit on & off during real cold weather!!).

Jan 2015 Update: After using my old MC-30 cable release on several cold weather shoots, I decided to purchase another new MC-30A and give it one more go. The reason is due to the older MC-30's knurled ring being so cotton-picking small! In cold weather this results in you NOT being able to twist the ring due to the cold making the connection between the cable ring & camera much tighter than normal.

The Nikon MC-30A Remote is simple, sturdy, and easy to use. I had previously used a Nikon MC-36 multi-function remote. It was showing signs of aging after lots of use in the field. Since I had purchased the MC-36 I had moved up to a Nikon D800. It had all the features I had needed the MC-36 for, so I purchased the MC-30A. It allows me to release the shutter without producing camera shake. It will lock for long exposures using the bulb setting on manual. One feature I am especially pleased with is the threaded mechanism for locking the remote to the camera. It is large and easy to get a grip on.

I had the old style, MC-30 that was plain a pain to get on and off both a D300and D700. I used to leave it attached for long periods to avoid the headache. I added a rubber washer and that helped a little, but the wire finally broke at the attachment point. After getting a D800, I rolled the dice on the newer MC-30a and what a difference. They added a spin on wheel and it goes on my camera in SECONDS now. Thanks Nikon, and worth every cent.

I had the older MC-30 version of this remote trigger release that I used on my D800e camera bodies. One of the those releases failed, and I bought this new MC-30a version. I liked the MC-30, but I like the MC-30a much better. It is easier to install and remove from the camera body. The MC-30 was really hard to install and remove...especially when you have big fingers like I have. By the way, I carry several of these releases with me because it is easy to step on one when moving a camera/tripod from one shoot location to another. If there is any water close to you, the release will also find its way into the water when you are not looking. Having spares is the best way to go for such a critical and inexpensive piece of gear.

I've used this remote release for a while now. The button is very easy to half-press for focusing, and also easy to lock for longer exposures. It is pricey, but it can withstand some impressive abuse. Mine has survived being dunked in water, dropped a thousand times onto hard surfaces such as rock and concrete, stuffed tightly into backpacks, and works perfectly in any type of weather. Id recommend this to anyone who wants the most durable and reliable remote trigger on the market.

This product came just as it was advertised. Easy secure (by threaded insert) attachment to camera. Works great and also has a lock for those longer exposures. My only negative comment is I wish that it was longer than 31". I would buy it again without question.

I use a remote trgger with a DSLR mounted on a tripod for HDR and long exposures. I was annoyed with Nikon when I acquired a D810 body to find that eight pin Nikon trigger that worked fine with preivous DSLRs would no longer work because the new camera uses a ten pin connector for its release.

A local camera store suggested a ten pin trigger from Vello for under $10 as a substitute. Might not last as long as the Nikon they said but I could buy six of them for the cost of an MC-30A. The Vello even has a little snazzy splash of orange to relieve its black plastic facade. Only one problem; the one I acquired is incapable of tripping the shutter on my D810 and even looking snazzy does not make up for that shortcoming.

So I acquired the MC-30A, which works perfectly but does not get more stars from me because I believe I've paid too much for a shutter tripper. For the functionality, the price seems too high and I still don't see why Nikon does not maintain more compatibility among accessories. So I bow to necessity and own the product but don't think it is a five star attraction.

My other complaint about the MC-30A, but this was true of the Velo as well, is that it led to my first complaint with the D810. I like having the rubber gasket that Nikon provides to cover the connector for the trigger release on the front of the camera body but the connector is very close to the lens, the gasket does not move out of the way easily and attaching the trigger feels much more clumsy and time consuming than attaching the 8 pin Nikon trigger to a D600. This is not a flaw of the MC-30A, but not consistent with typical Nikon human factors either.
