1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the D3100
Unfortunately, the seller lists this item to work with the D3100 Nikon, and it does not have a remote control option for that model. I had just purchase my camera a couple weeks ago and I figured a remote control would be a good idea to have. Make sure the camera does have the option to use a remote option. DOES NOT WORK WITH THE D3100!

What's fine was that I...

i bought this item after having bought a wired remote, not the best choice. i recently used this to take night shots of different locations during the winter. about 9 degrees Fahrenheit. for those of you who know night photography, it is time conscious and consuming a single image can take from 30 seconds to a few hours depending on what you want as an end result. so back to the beginning, it was VERY COLD out and i had the perfect area for shooting, but didnt want to freeze my butt off. so i set up my camera which i was surprised actually functioned in those cold conditions. sat in my car and used the remote from the warmth of my car to take 4 hours worth of photos (only 9 photos total) and the remote worked fantastically.

I don't know what the distance is but I've used this item now for two interior shoot and it works fantastically with the Nikon D5100. Just remember to turn on the remote function on the camera.

I got this remote because of the price. Actually, I didn't any hope that will be a good product. Well, I was wrong. This remote work great with my Nikon D7000 and D90 cameras. For the price ($6) you cannot get any better than that.

The set up was easy and it works perfectly. I don't know why anyone else would pay more for the other brands.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good wireless remote option, December 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photive PHML-L3 Wireless Shutter Release Remote For Nikon D5300, D3200, D5100, D5000, D7000, D600, D610, D80, D90, p7000, P7100, Nikon J1, V1, Nikon 1 AW1 Digital SLRS(Replaces Nikon PHML-L3) (Electronics)
This inexpensive replacement for Nikon's ML-L3 wireless remote has been great for use with a D3200, working with the camera right out of the box. Its 16' range is mostly accurate, but it fires consistantly from 13', and with its $7 pricetag, I have no complaints.

5.0 out of 5 stars Removal/Reinstallation of battery on PHML-L3, March 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Photive PHML-L3 Wireless Shutter Release Remote For Nikon D5300, D3200, D5100, D5000, D7000, D600, D610, D80, D90, p7000, P7100, Nikon J1, V1, Nikon 1 AW1 Digital SLRS(Replaces Nikon PHML-L3) (Electronics)
Great device. Best $5.99 I've spent all week - and it's now Saturday. Cost takes the sting out of the overall cost - right!
Note--what is lacking on any website and with the remote to date, is how to reinstall the battery.
When you remove it - it'll probably 'go flying'. First find a thin dime (if you still have any left)
1--the tiny plastic latch is at #1 on the case;
2--the battery rests on the inside small plastic ledge (logical way).
3--When you install the battery you need to see the '+' symbol!

Note: To remove the battery --If you are right handed, hold the transmitter in your left hand with the button downward. 1--Support the transmitter with your middle finger and hook the tiny plastic slot with your index finger.
2--Apply inward pressure with your fingernail towards the center of the case-i.e. curl your index finger almost to point where you think your fingernail will tear from the fingernail bed!
3---With the thin dime in your right hand,(don't be a macho man) insert it into the slot(it'll just fit)and twist gently. If this doesn't work, ask your wife/girlfriend/small child to show you. Tom

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the D3100, February 3, 2012

DOES NOT WORK WITH THE D3100!

What's fine was that I bought it for $6 w/free shipping, so it wasn't much of a loss. It was going to cost me $2.49 to ship it back. Hopefully I can find someone to buy it locally from me.
