A Great Addition To My Camera Bag This remote works great, especially for group photos, where you also want to be in the shot. Just set up your camera on a tripod, set the release mode to "remote", and press the button. Doesn't get any better, easier, and simpler than that. This remote also works great for doing landscapes if you are going for long exposures. May 13, 2013
But first learn how to use it........ I found that with one press of the IR remote the shutter does not operate for about 20 seconds. You can however press the remote a second time after the mirror is raised raised, at any time you choose to operate the shutter, giving you a delay of your choice up to about 20 seconds. April 22, 2013
Excellent addition to my photographic tool kit I use this with my DSLR, D5000 and my Coolpix P7700. In a previous review there was a complicated approach to the D5000. An easier one for me is: 1) Press the "I" button on the back (bottom left), 2) toggle down to "Release mode" (normally set at "S"), press "OK" and 3) toggle down to remote image (last) and press "OK." Once you turn the camera off, it will authomatically return to the "S" release mode. I like to use the remote for most of my hand held shots, to avoid camera shake. Very nice accessory and reasonably priced. December 7, 2012
great product love the remote. we have a big family so its perfect. make sure to set the release-mode to remote or 2 second release. June 15, 2012
Excellent remote at a great price Super product. Works perfectly. (To those who can't make the ML-L3 function, LOOK AT YOUR CAMERA MANUAL. For most models, set the release-mode dial to "remote," then go into the shooting menu and choose between immediate release and delay.) March 7, 2012

Answer: 
the ml-l3 doesn't have a "halfway" button, if you press it it autofocuses and shoots (instantly or by the delay you set). the button on the body, if pressed, will only autofocus.

Answer: 
I am assuming you have removed the clear plastic battery-insulator sheet from in the remote, and a CR2025 battery is in the ML-L3 remote, and the battery is in the battery tray with the plus sign facing up, and the battery tray is correctly inserted all the way into the remote . You can verify that the remote is working by putting your camera in liveview mode, point your remote toward the camera lens and keep pressing the button on the remote. While doing this in a dark area, you should see a purple light on your camera screen emitting from the remote.

The D3200 has to be in remote shutter release mode before the ML-L3 can be use with it.

(1)While in shooting mode, press the I-button (information edit button : the button at the bottom left of the D3200 LCD) to bring up the information edit screen. Your LCD will turn dark grey.

(2)Using your multi selector (Arrow buttons: up,down,left, and right), highlight the item located in the 4th column on the far right of the screen, and press OK. At default camera settings. you will see S. See page 31 of the user manual.

(3) Scroll down and select Quick response remote, or Delay 2 seconds remote, and then try using the remote.

Answer: 
You have to open the compartment. Look carefully on the bottom part of the remote. You have to press the small button to the left while simultaneously push it outward. It will take some time to do it, especially the first time. I did by using a penny to push the small button to the side and then pressed with my thumb to push the whole thing out. Once you get it a little out, use anything that is pointy and you should be able to pull the whole thing out. Be careful as you get it out, the battery will most certainly jump right out.

When you put the new battery, remember that the positive side has to face up towards you.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,
I have a few questions:
Does ML-L3 works with D3100?
If yes, how can I connect into my camera? Does the D3100 has a IR sensor? Or should I need to buy a "receiver"to connect into my camera?

Happy 2012

Thanks
