MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord (1 meter)
When using slower shutter speeds on a tripod, this is essential in minimizing vibration. I bought an extra for my tripod bag just in case (kinda of a "don't leave home without it" accessory).

My Favorite Accessory
This is my favorite accessory. I carry a tripod and this cable to use when conditions allow - no people around; no wind - to enable long range telephoto shots and dim light shots. This shutter release cable is perfect for my D5100: easy connection, easy and smooth operation. But get acquainted with the movement of the switch. Note that it does not operate the video since that is a separate firing mechanism.
