Question

Will the ML-L3 turn the Nikon J1 on or does it only release the shutter?

Camera is in a location about 14' off the ground and I would like to leave it there and be able to turn it on to take photos of my fab shop occasionally.

the ml-l3 doesn't have a "halfway" button, if you press it it autofocuses and shoots (instantly or by the delay you set). the button on the body, if pressed, will only autofocus.

answer 2
I am assuming you have removed the clear plastic battery-insulator sheet from in the remote, and a CR2025 battery is in the ML-L3 remote, and the battery is in the battery tray with the plus sign facing up, and the battery tray is correctly inserted all the way into the remote . You can verify that the remote is working by putting your camera in liveview mode, point your remote toward the camera lens and keep pressing the button on the remote. While doing this in a dark area, you should see a purple light on your camera screen emitting from the remote.

The D3200 has to be in remote shutter release mode before the ML-L3 can be use with it.

(1)While in shooting mode, press the I-button (information edit button : the button at the bottom left of the D3200 LCD) to bring up the information edit screen. Your LCD will turn dark grey.

(2)Using your multi selector (Arrow buttons: up,down,left, and right), highlight the item located in the 4th column on the far right of the screen, and press OK. At default camera settings. you will see S. See page 31 of the user manual.

(3) Scroll down and select Quick response remote, or Delay 2 seconds remote, and then try using the remote.

You have to open the compartment. Look carefully on the bottom part of the remote. You have to press the small button to the left while simultaneously push it outward. It will take some time to do it, especially the first time. I did by using a penny to push the small button to the side and then pressed with my thumb to push the whole thing out. Once you get it a little out, use anything that is pointy and you should be able to pull the whole thing out. Be careful as you get it out, the battery will most certainly jump right out.

When you put the new battery, remember that the positive side has to face up towards you.

Hope this helps!

Question

ML-L3 Wireless

Hi there,
I have a few questions:
Does ML-L3 works with D3100?
If yes, how can I connect into my camera? Does the D3100 has a IR sensor? Or should I need to buy a "receiver"to connect into my camera?

Happy 2012

Thanks

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 and remains open until the remote-control shutter-release button is pressed a second time (maximum exposure time is 30 minutes).

Question

bulb mode and ML-L3 remote

I'm using the ML-L3 remote with my D3200. I was under the impression that in Bulb mode the remote would open the shutter with one click of the remote and then close it with the subsequent click. However, when I change the release mode to remote, "Bulb" changes to "Time" and I have no idea what to do next.

My goal is to take some long exposures and use the remote to open and close the shutter. But now I'm wondering if the remote is actually capable of this function. Thanks

The other response here reversed the numbers in the battery model number.

CR2025 is the actual number

3V is correct

My battery is 4 years old and is original, made by Maxell.

I want to replace it before an important shoot just in case it wants to give up the ghost soon. To open the case you have to slide the tab near the edge toward center and then pull the sliding plastic battery tray out. Don't break your nails~
