MC-30 Remote Cord

tklostermann, PriceGrabber
1 December 2007
  • Summary: I upgraded from the D80, so I had to purchase a significantly more expensive remote and it is not wireless. This cord works well on my D300 and gives you the opportunity to take many more shots than with the self-timer alone. There are a lot of off-brand wireless and wired shutter release systems that are much cheaper, but I only trust Nikon.
  • Pros: Works well on the D300
  • Cons: Expensive

Least expensive remote for Nikon D200

sem99, PriceGrabber
4 June 2006
  • Summary: This is the least expensive option from Nikon to control your D200. There is no need to buy the much more expensive MC-36, because MC-30 works just as well and most of options built into MC-36 can be controlled from the camera itself.
  • Pros: well made, work well
  • Cons: price

Nikon Remote Shutter Cord Simple to Use on D200 But...

jdywhite, PriceGrabber
16 May 2006
  • Summary: This is Nikon's own brand of remote shutter cord, and this model is the simplest and least expensive of their remote cords that fit the D200. It is still very expensive. It is quality-made, however, better than the no-name 10-pin brands, although I would bet they work fine too. There is an optional extension cord, but I find the length of the original cord is sufficient for my uses, which is photographing flowers.
  • Pros: Simple, easy to use, also has a locking mechanism to keep the shutter open when desired.
  • Cons: Expensive. Can be difficult to find available for purchase, like many of the Nikon D200 accessories because of huge demand and small supply.

Good performance

igami001, PriceGrabber
20 February 2006
  • Summary: MC-30 is my best partner. Previously I owned F5 and used with third party remote cord. Holdimg feel was very bad!! And I mistook many times in taking night view photos. I purchased MC-30 1 month before then my issue was gone. I don't recommend to Nikon users to purchase third party remote cable.
  • Pros: Holding feel
  • Cons: Nothing

Would be five stars except for the price

Dave, WEX
4 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for doing very long exposure shots at night. It's very easy to click the shutter and lock it for a few minutes. Then just slide it open. It's a bit pricey just for a shutter release but what isn't in photography.
  • Pros: Does What It Says On The, Durable, Easy To Use, Improves Product Function, Lightweight
  • Cons: Expencive

Must Have Item

Geordie Den, WEX
10 September 2011
  • Summary: After purchasing a few of the more cheaper items over the years, it was all false economy. They all seemed to let you down at one stage or another. Bought this item and it performs brilliant. Use it on my D300, can be a bit fiddly to screw into camera, I found it best to remove both rubber covers and move them up out of the way.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight

Great piece of kit

Daiman, WEX
13 February 2009
  • Summary: Very useful when using a tripod and you don't want to touch the camera in case you cause vibration. Also great when doing single or group portraits, you can stand up and talk to your subject rather that be bent down looking through the viewfinder.I also use on wildlife, first having set the camera on a particular spot I can then wait in comfort for my subject to appear and then gotcha! without having to use the view finder again.

Nice addon, but lacks autofocus, expensive.

underworldmagic, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Introduction ########## This remote was included free with my Nikon SLR camera. The retail price of this is around £54.99. The Unit ####### You know your getting a quality product when you hear "Nikon" - they have been in the business for years, and are one of the most trusted companies when it comes to photography. As the name suggests it's only suitable for Nikon cameras. I have the Nikon D80 and it works perfectly with it.
  • Pros: Reliability
