ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control (Infrared)
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.

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.

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.

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.)
