MC-20 vs MC-36,
This review is from: NIKON MC-20 2.6-Foot Remote Trigger Release with Timer (Electronics)
I have owned the MC-20 for over 15 years, and one of the reasons I prefer it over the newer MC-36, is that while the MC-20 can take a pill battery (CR2032), the battery is really not needed; the MC-20 gets its power from the camera if the battery is not installed.
The MC-36 (which has basically the same functions as an MC-20) does not require its batteries (2 AAA) for use as a simple shutter release. However, according to the MC-36 manual, without batteries the MC-36 electronics (the display and the beep) and all other functions (eg, timers) are inoperative. With the MC-20, the display and other functions remain active as long as the MC-20 is connected to the camera.
I also like the feel of the MC-20 better in my hand.
