Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. ML-3 Compact Modulite Remote

Question

Can I use this if I'm using the Nikon wireless remote speedlight ring flash?

The Speedlight commander is in the hot shoe mount so how would I get aroungd that? Is there any other product I can use that just goes in the 10 pin mount?
Thanks!

No as it is a 10 pin connection, you need to use the MC-DC2.

Question

How to shoot with an ML-3 on a bulb mode

Hello, I own a D700 and I bought the ML-3 compact modulite remote for remote trigger.

The problem I am facing is that When I am on M-mode and have the exposure setting on Bulb, I am unable to trigger it for a long time. Even if I keep on holding the trigger on the remote.

Please advise.

In order for you to be able to use the BULB feature of your camera, you will have to set the remote to C and as long as you have the button pressed the shutter will remain open.

You need to set the camera in bulb, and the ML-3 in C, and keep the button pressed since it doesn't have a lock option.

Sorry, but it is not compatible with the D3100 -- which lacks a 10-pin connector required to connect this device. Perhaps you mistook products you've viewed recently for compatible cameras...
