Nikon ML-L3


This worked great. I was impressed when I first got it, and I am still impressed this has to be the best remote EVER!!! This is such a great buy.

Sometimes you have to constantly be pressing the button.

Love It


I wasn't too sure if this would work with my D-90 but it does and I didn't even have to sync it up or anything fancy. Just turned the camera on, got in front of it and "CHEESE", and BAM, it was that simple.

Very compact and WIRELESS, need I say more?

Also works with Nikon D90!!


I would like to know the distance that this remote is capable of.

This remote works with a lot of the Nikon cameras! Doesn't say here that it works with the Nikon D90 but, I checked Nikons website and it states that this model (ML-L3) remote does work with the D90. This allows the camera operator to be in the...

None at this time.

Works great but overpriced on Newegg


Necessity for tripod mounted slow shutter speeds shots.

A must have! ”


The Nikon - ML-L3 Remote control is a must have for any photographer. There are many times when a photographer could use this to enhance their photography. Lets say you need a slow shutter. You have your camera on the tripod but you camera is still...

Essential for any Nikon photography bag! ”


To tell you the truth the only reason I bought one of these is because I had an extra couple of bucks to spend on a gift card.  Wow, was I lucky!  You really take for granted the usefulness of one of these.  I used to think that the on board timer was...

Great for Using with D5100


This product is really great for use with Nikon D5100, but I want to express one thing that I paid Rs705 for this product to Flipkart but the MRP on the box mentions Rs650...This is not right Flipkart, we believe you so much and you do such things to...

ML-L3 Remote is amazing!


I shoot with a D3200. The remote worked brilliantly. I am very pleased with this product. I agree with some of the other users. It took a bit of fiddling around to figure out how to use it. Instructions would definitely be nice!
