Question

Is there a remote for the Nikon 1 J4?

I recently bought the ML-L3 remote off Amazon and it said that the remote was compatible with basically every nikon DSLR camera, even the Nikon 1 J4. However, when I received the remote I could not get it to connect to the camera, and after some further research I actually found out that it wasn't compatible with my camera. So the question is, is there a remote that is compatible for the Nikon 1 J4?

The ML-L3 is not compatible with the 1J4, however, you can control the camera remotely with a smart device, Android or Ios, download the relevant app and use that.

Question

Will the remote trigger more than 1 camera?

I'm taking a trip to Iceland in February and hoping to catch a glimpse of the aurora. All being well (and if the aurora shows up) I'm going to a spot with several other photographers.

If there's another Nikon photographer near me with their camera set to remote mode, will my ML-L3 trigger their camera also?

I can imagine this would make me rather unpopular!
Thanks.

Using the ML-L3 will fire other cameras off if it is in near proximity and they have theirs set to remote, though not all bodies can be controlled with it so it may not have any effect on their camera.

The ML-L3 can be used with the D7100 when going into the shooting menu of the camera and selecting Remote control mode (ML-L3). Pages 127-129 of the User's Manual explain how to use the ML-L3 with the D7100. The link of the User's Manual can be found here: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Question

Is there something I'm overlooking to operate remote ML-L3?

I can't get it to work. Battery is in correct. Trying to use it with a Coolpix P7700. On the P7700, I adjust the self timer mode to 'quick response remote' and press 'OK'. That should be it. Right? My exposure mode is 'Programmed auto' and my focus mode is 'Center normal'. Please help, thank you.

Use the Remote Control ML-L3 (available separately) (E102) to release the shutter. It is convenient for taking group shots including yourself and effectively eliminates blur caused by camera shake that occurs when the shutter-release button is pressed. Press the self-timer on the rotary multi selector. Select remote control mode using the multi selector to display the setting. Select the remote control setting and press the button. Please contact Nikon Technical Support for help with this question. For information on how to contact Nikon please visit http://support.nikonusa.com/app/ans....

Question

Does the ML-L3 work with nikon1 J4?

It comes up as a compatible accessory, but I can not find anything in the Nikon 1 J4 menus for changing the release mode. I have the correct battery, it is in the right way, the plastic tab is pulled out already. There does not seem to be any type of beam coming from the remote though. Could I have received a defective item? I also can not find a manual on this site for this product.

When the ML-L3 remote control is used in M mode, users can selected '- -' as the shutter speed. At this setting, the shutter opens when the shutter-release button on the optional ML-L3 remote control is pressed (2 seconds after the button is pressed in delayed remote mode) and remains open until the remote-control shutter-release button is pressed a second time (maximum exposure time is 30 minutes). For more information on using the ML-L3 please see the following article: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
