Works great for taking your own family photos, or group shots when you actually want to be in the picture.
Victoria Bowers
The Nikon ML-L3 wireless remote is great for taking shots while away from your camera AFTER you have your shot set up and composed.
Lyssa Seefeldt
Be sure to strap it to yourself or keep it in your camera bag because this one is very small and easy to lose.

It's no surprise that when you stand in front of the camera and push the
button, the remote triggers the shutter. There does seem to be some
confusion in reviews, both here and elsewhere, as to the remote's ability
to focus the lens before triggering the shutter.

This remote is capable of focusing the lens before triggering the shutter.
However, it will not focus the lens if the photographer has already
pushed the shutter release button on the camera half way down to focus
the image or if you are shooting in Manual mode and have AF-C set as
the Autofocus mode.

This means that if you are composing a photograph and push the shutter
button half way down to focus the image and you then stand in front of
the camera and push the remote button, the image will not focus
because you've already pushed the camera shutter release button half
way down to focus. To get the image to focus while you are standing in
front of the camera, compose the shot but do not push the camera's
shutter release button half way down, get in front of the camera and
then push the button.

If you own a D70 you simply can't be without this item. Because Nikon chose not to include a mechanical cable release option (or an electronic one either), it is difficult to shoot at slow shutter speeds, even on a tripod, without getting camera shake affecting your images. You can use the timer, but that doesn't always work for your shooting situation. With this remote, you get the same basic operation as a cable release as well as a bonus that you can put yourself in front of the lens and use the remote to trip the shutter release. It also works in combination with the self timer. One small concern is that because it's an IR remote, you must point it at the sensor, which is on the front of the camera. This can be awkward standing behind a tripod, but not seriously. I really enjoy using this product.

Well...its a remote.
I use it with my d50 and it works to about 30 ft. When I get the shot composed, I press the timer button 2x to get the camera ready to shoot, press the button and step out, or sit down and press the button during group shots.

In bulb mode I do the same. Press the timer 3x to get it ready, press to start the shot and step away. Come back and press the button again and it stops the shot.

Works just like it is supposed to.

One thing to remember is to set the camera's time to receive the signal. The camera automatically turns the IR off after a certian amount of time. If this happens, it won't accept it until you turn it back on. If you'll be taking a lot of shots, just change the camera's setting to look for the remote for 5 minutes or so.

I finally had my 15 year old show me how it works. No instructions included in the box. If you look in your camera manual it shows you step by step on how to use it. Turn the camera on. On the top of the camera is the timer button (to the left and below the on-off dial)press this and watch very carefully the display and you will see the ity bity timer icon change. The first time you depress you see the timer icon, next time you will see the remote and the timer, and the third time you depress the timer button you will only see the remote icon. This is the setting that I used. Leave the camera on of course move away keeping the camera pointed at you in the direct line of the remote (like a TV remote control)and push the button. It works great!

I have to say that this is a pretty good accessory to have. The only con that I have ran accross is that it does not work from directly behind the camera, but that's solved by using it from the side. Hope this helps!!

I would never have though to buy a remote for my camera, but I saw the suggestion on Ken Rockwell's awesome Nikon site, so I went for it. This remote is so much fun, even my five-year-old is taking pictures with it. I've had it for two weeks, and I've done self-portraits, long exposures and group shots with it (no more running before the timer goes off!).

This is a must if you want to do long exposures. I was able to put my camera on a tripod and use the setting that allows you to click the remote once to open the shutter and again to close it. Because I didn't have to touch the camera to operate the shutter, I got really cool pictures of stars and meteors with no camera shake.

Too bad it is out of stock often. But Amazon has it come back once and a while.

It works well with a N75 and a Nikon Pronea APS SLR (my tests) and is compatible with several other Nikon cameras. The range is acceptable and it comes with batteries pre-installed. There is no documentation, but it is a no-brainer. It also comes with a little fabric case that you can thread through your camera neck strap for safekeeping.

Nikon should really include this sub ten dollar part with their high end cameras. I am sure that most users would have appreciated it even if it added a little more in price to a D70.

This product works fine - once you get your camera (mine is a D80) set up correctly. I sort of feel like a dunderhead, but the ML-L3 comes with absolutely NO documentation. Having never used one before, and being relatively new to the D80, I could not get the remote to trigger the camera. I looked at every menu to no avail. Finally, I tried the "Bearded Rectangle" (shutter control) button on the top-right side of the camera, just below the shutter release button and right of the top LCD. You hold this button down and turn the rear dial until you see the Remote Control icon. After this it works fine. This IS covered in the D80 manual (I found later) but it is hard to find under "Accessories." Makes sense now that I've found it.
