I was searching for a remote control for my D90 and I stumbled across this by luck in Amazon and immediately ordered it. I could not find any information on the net (it wasn't there in the Hama UK website!) - looks like this is a recent product. The German product description at the time of this writing wasn't helpful either, I could figure out that it is compatible with the D90 and D5000.

Here's what I understand from the German product description:

Wireless radio remote control release (16 channel, 433 MHz) for Nikon DSLR cameras with MC-DC2 connections*. Serial release and time exposure (bulb). Range upto 30m (also through walls). Very easy installation of the receiver via the Remote input. Two stage release key - autofocus, release. For timed exposure, the release has to be pressed for 3 seconds.

* Compatible with the D90 and D5000

The product comes with 2xAAA batteries for the transmitter, and 1xLR23 battery for the receiver. The transmitter comes with the shutter, and the receiver comes with an on/off switch. Channels on both must be set identical for operation.

It was easy to set up; the transmitter plugs into the GPS socket. Contrary to the ML-L3 IR remote, you dont have to set the shooting mode to remote (It took me a while to figure this out, though).

The remote supports 3 modes -

(a) single-shutter - ie, the camera is in signle shot mode. Here, you just half-press the shutter for autofocus, then depress it fully to take the shot.

(b) continuous shutter - ie, the camera is in continuous shoot mode. Here, you keep the button depressed after autofocus, and the camera keeps shooting until you release the button

(c) Bulb shutter - ie, the camera is in bulb shoot mode.

I've taken around 1000 pictures with my D3100 with no problems. It behaves exactly as the button on the body - you press half down to auto focus then all the way down to shoot. Works with all release modes eg Continuous or Delay.
I haven't scientifically tested the range, but I've never had a problem, including through walls, and don't even bother extending the aerial.

I wanted a remotd shutter control for use with my Nikon D90 but Nikon's products only seemed to operate with the control forward of the camera. This obviously is quite unsuitable for very many situation, especially wildlife shots, so I had to look at other options. The Hama seemed ideal, the reviews were very good and the price seemed very reasonable for what was claimed for the product. Although having to came from Germany, delivery was fast enough using the free delivery option, five days in fact.
The connector on the receiver plugged into the GPS socket on the D90 and was held very firmly so no fear of its coming loose. Using it, first, at close range, I found focussing and shutter operation speeds to be instantaneous and further experimenting showed me that I had made a good choice. I placed the camera in my back bedroom, facing towards the window and operated transmitter from the front bedroom. The two rooms have a stairway between them which meant the signal had to pass through two brick walls. No problem at all. Operating the the tiny transmitter from the other side street and with the camera downstairs - perfect. Whether the transmitter is held in front, at the side or behind the camere it never fails. Operating range is claimed to be ninety feet though I haven't yet tested this.
For a rapid succession of shots, simply hold down the button. For timed exposures at night or in very dim light, set the camera to manual and hold down the button for the desired length of time. Simples!
Wholeheartedly recommended, and for the money, a bargain.
Eric Hulme.

You have just got to get this toy for your camera. I recently bought a Nikon D5100 (a beautiful bit of kit) and spotted this radio controlled unit whilst searching the web. I was a bit aprehensive about the purchase as it was not Nikon made, but it has far exceeded my expectations already. It simply plugs into the side of the camera; switch it on and you are ready to snap. I purchased it to do long exposures of the stars, but also to attempt to do some nature shots, of birds on the bird feeders etc, where I wouldn't need to be in the area, and as an obvious reduction in camera shake by not having to stand there and press the shutter release button. Tried it out yesterday on the bird feeders. Set up the camera on the very sturdy Velbon Sherpa 630 tripod (another beautiful bit of kit) about 10 feet from the bird feeder; aimed the 55-300 telephoto lense at the feeder, set the camera to sports mode (approx 4 shots per second) and hung around various windows inside the house (and at times in the garage in darkness) awaiting the arrival of any birds, not expecting to be getting fantastic results in under 15 minutes. The sound of the shutter release did not appear to worry the birds even though I could clearly make it out (although it was still quiet!) and I was a further 20-25 feet away. Got Sparrows to start with, then a Great Tit and finally a Blue Tit. Ended up taking about 400 shots plus, but some great results, good clarity, to the point of picking up the individual barbs of the feathers! This toy also works through walls as others have stated in previous reviews. It really is a must have, especially for under £30. I will try to add a photo link ASAP to this article.
