Great remote, but it should be a standard item

Response time is great. Range is good too

Not much of an instruction manual came with pkg

Nikon ML-L3 remote controller


One of the first things I did with my new Nikon D5100 was zoom into some houses on the hill top and set the camera for a long exposure. I used a tripod but that ...

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...

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!

It is working well with my Nikon D5100. The range of the remote is good. The product is itself very light and handy. Let's you capture different shutter speed shots as well as self-portraits. I would recommend it. Probably only works with Nikon.
