Summary: This is the shutter release for the Nikon D5000. Defintiely check your specs because Nikon makes a couple and the first model I bought didn't work. This one works great. It is easy to use, eliminates any camera shake and is as responsive as the shutter release on the body of the camera.
Excerpt: As one of the Ancient ones my hands are too shakey even for the VR lenses. I have to use this on most photo shoots, with or without a tripod. It makes a big difference in the sharpness of my images
