D40X - Remote mode for longer than 15 minutes?

Is there a way of setting the D40x into remote mode for longer than 15 minutes? I want to take some Wildlife photography without having to tend my camera every 15 minutes and disturb the scene.

Thanks Team! :)

Why not invest in Nikon's Camera Control software.  When the camera is attached to a laptop, you have complete control of the camera from the computer, and it will do time-lapse shots at any interval you choose.

How do I use the ML-L3 remote with a Nikon d40x?


Set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

Press the Info button. Use the direction keys to the shooting mode (along the right side, fifth from the top). Press OK. Use up/down to select the remote modes (the two at the bottom).

For full details, refer to the "Shooting Mode" section in the D40x manual.

I couldn't get the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control to work on my Nikon D40x when I was using the external flash (SB-900). When I took it off, it worked fine. Is there a way to get it to work with the external...


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To set the camera's release mode, press the button to bring up the information display. Press the button to put the cursor into the information display. Use the cursor keys to highlight the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press OK. Use the cursor keys to highlight the desired mode and press OK.

Full details are in the manual in the "Release Mode" section (page 53 in my copy).

HI,I hav a Nikon D40x camera. When I use the remote control to take pivtures it only stays in that mode for about 10 seconds before ending. How can I alter this to keep it on that setting for longer?


You are being timed out as the default setting is 10 seconds.

Enter your setup menu (looks like a pencil) and scroll through to " Remote On Duration ".... now change this to 15 minutes and ok.Job done.
Remember to reset the menu once finished.

Hope this helps,if i helped you please vote.

Ml-L3 with D40x


Yes it does work, but you need to change the setting within the menu from possibly continuous shooting to remote.

And you have to point the remote at the front of the camera as this is where the sensor is.

How to use remote on nikon D40


Set the release mode to Quick-response or Delayed-remote, then point the ML-L3 at the receiver and push the button.

"Shooting Mode" is on page 32 on my D40 manual.

Using remote ML-L3


Since the D40 and D40x are nearly identical, go to menus, the pencil icon, shooting mode, select the bottom one. Oh , and check the battery in the remote, mine was dead.:-)

Using the ML-L3 with the D60


Got it! It's on page 54 of the manual (mine anyway).

Choose release mode from the Quick settings display.

You have a choice between:
single frame (default)
continuous (burst mode)
self-timer
delayed remote (using the ML-L3)
quick response remote (using the ML-L3)

I just took 4 self-portraits using quick response. And deleted them straightaway!

Enjoy!
