5.0 out of 5 stars Great for D7000 18 Feb 2011
By mothew
I've just tested it with the D7000 and it works great. It plugs into the GPS socket so I you couldn't use both a GPS and this remote release at the same time.

While Nikon's website doesn't mention this as an accessory for the D7000, it is mentioned in the user manual on pages 73 & 281. I find the mc-dc2 invaluable for close up work, even when the camera's on my tripod.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose 12 Jun 2010
By R. Soos
Verified Purchase
Nicely made but basically straightforward piece of kit so I can't see a need to sing and dance about it. I would add though that the cord release does have it's benefits over the IR remote. I bought this item because I found that the IR remote which I originally got is not really very handy when you are behind the camera, which often occurs for macro or wildlife shots. It will only fire when in front. This cord is great for exactly those situations.

A really useful tool to your camera kit. Though nowhere mentioned in the product description, it works well with Nikon D3100. Really useful when taking pictures at low light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works flawlessly with My D5000 10 May 2011
Verified Purchase
I purchased this to replace a cheap imported version I bought here on Amazon about a year ago for a fiver which unsurprisingly has never performed well at all.

As expected this genuine Nikon accessory works flawlessly with my D5000 & at the price I paid for it (16 + del) makes me wonder why I ever bothered with the cheap pattern one which is now sitting in my waste basket.

Don't bother with the cheap copies from China, in my opinion they are a waste of money. (Buy cheap pay twice-as the saying goes)
Get this genuine Nikon Accessory. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon D5000 remote cord 12 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase
This remote cord release also works with the D5000, although I couldn't confirm that from the Amazon website (I just looked in the camera manual). It can be used from behind the camera (unlike the infra-red one), so it's ideal for photographing wildlife from inside a hide.

5.0 out of 5 stars wired remote 18 Feb 2009
I would recommend this product over the ml l3 ,you don't have to point remote at camera when you want that valuble shot and mess with settings ,just plug in and press .A lot more reliable to use and easier to find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nikon Remote cord 4 Oct 2009
Well, it is great for the price and does exactly as it says. The only little niggle is that it seems to be abit cheap, but cant complain. It's a must and takes everytime anywhere, unlike remote.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but overpriced 10 Jun 2010
By Anon
I own a Nikon D90 and bought the MC-DC2 through Amazon. The MC-DC2 plugs into the D90's GPS slot. Very easy to use after that - you press the release button slightly to autofocus, and press it completely for taking a picture. It cant get simpler than that! It therefore supports all modes of operation - single, continuous and bulb (for long exposures).

In my view, the MC-DC2 is overpriced. You might want to check out its equivalents, or, the Hama NI-3, a radio control with a range of about 30m. See Hama 00005369 NI-3 Wireless Remote Control Release for Nikon Camera. Since it works on radio, it is not limited to line of sight operations (like the rather silly ML-L3 remote - see Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control). I have both the MC-DC2 and the Hama because the latter needs batteries, and the MC-DC2 does not. So it is a backup, should I run out of batteries!

5.0 out of 5 stars night and low-light pictures
This item allows me to take more easily night and low-light pictures with my Nikon 5200. I prefer the remote cord rather than the more expensive cordless systems.

This product initially felt a little flimsy but it does what its supposed to do, effectively. A good little remote if you're on a budget.
