The answer above, from Lance isn't accurate.

The MC-36 does have a count to 399. But then it has a setting "- -" for unlimited shooting. See page 9 of the manual for more details.

So to answer the question, Yes. The MC-36 can be attached to a 10-pin remote camera and be used to trigger that camera every 30 seconds for 7 hours. Don't forget a fresh battery and empty memory card!

answer 2
Some math to help answer your question:
30 seconds = two times per minute
2 shots/minute * 60 minutes/hour * 7 hours = 840 shots

The MC-36 can count up to 399 shots. If you need the MC-36 to begin and end shooting for 7 hours in an unattended scenario, this will not work (840 > 399). However, if you can return at or after the 7 hours have elapsed, you can simply configure the MC-36 to shoot every 30 seconds until the timer is stopped manually. This is done by setting "N" to "--" instead of a number.

I know it's not listed as compatible, but it does use the same pin mount.... So in theory, it should work. But, at a $114 price point, it would be nice to know for sure.... Hence the question posed to Nikon Tech.

The MC-36 uses a 10-pin cable which the D7000 does not have. My only suggestion for this is to use the Nikon Camera Control Pro which you can set Time Lapse for as many pictures as you want or until you tell it to stop. You will need to carry a laptop with you is the only downside but works like a charm. I was able to capture the sunset every 3 seconds for 1 hour to create a nice smooth time lapse sunset.

Question

Will the mirror stay locked up?

I will soon have a D200. I'm interested in the MC-36 for use as an interval timer. I want to utilize the mirror lockup function but I understand that it requires two presses of the shutter button to actually take a picture. Can the MC-36 keep the mirror locked up?

Can you select a time for a Bulb exposure and will it stop the exposure when the time is done? in other words, can I set it for one shot, let's say 60 seconds and will it close the shutter automatically at the end of the 60 seconds or do you have to release it manually?
