5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with my Nikon D3100 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
It took quite a while for me to receive this as it comes from China, but it is definitely much better than paying £30 for Nikon's official remote shutter release.

It wasn't working for me at first, however I soon realised that I had to push it into the GPS socket much further (basically, I hadn't plugged it in properly). Before you first plug it in, check which way round it needs to plug in as the GPS socket is very badly designed - unlike USB where it can only go in one way. There are no settings to configure, simply plug it in and it works.

The device is well built and although I've only used it a couple of times, I'm sure that it will last a long time. The button on it works like the camera shutter button - press it half way to focus and all the way to take a picture. If you're using bulb to take a picture with a custom exposure time (or want to do a lot of continuous shooting), you'll want to slide the button up to lock it after you've pressed it - this allows you to keep the shutter pressed, even though you don't have your finger on it. Very useful for 10sec + exposures (like astrophotography).

Overall a great product and I would definitely recommend it over Nikon's official one because of the price and build quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works with my D3100 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I love shooting on clear nights and this has come in very well. Moon shots are easy, however to get the stars is a bit more involved. Having played around with a tripod and not getting the results I wanted with pressing the button I looked for a remote. Would I have purchased the Nikon one? Yes. Could I justify the purchase of the Nikon one? Not at the price difference?

I only have one small issue, the button can stick keeping the aperture open when shooting in BULB mode, or taking extra shots if you forget the multi-shot function is on. However at less than 1/2 the price of the Nikon item I can live with that.

As for delivery time, it arrived before the stated date, so no problems there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compatible with Nikon D5200. 18 May 2013

This plugs into the GPS/accessory socket, and works as it should with my Nikon D5200.

The plug in does feel a little tight, but maybe all accessories into the GPS socket do, including official products? [I don't have anything to compare it with].

You can control video recording with this, also - just set the option for the accessory terminal to control recording, in the camera's menu.

I have an official remote cable release for my other camera [Fuji] and this feels better made than that, so quality wise I would say it feels well built, especially for the cost of under £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it ! 23 Mar 2013

Simple & effective. Maybe the 1m cable cable could have been a bit longer but for less than £4 not worth the moan.

Essential with a tripod, works well and gives you the freedom to move away from the camera to compose your shot, aside from the added protection against vibration.

Works fine as taking night shots you need a steady had it is better release with this cable no shake. It's basic dose what it is suppose to do, well packaged and on time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loose plug
Contact between remote and camera socket becomes loose after every other shot. You need to push the cable for it to work again. Otherwise works well.
