You need to set the camera into the self timer mode.

1) Single frame shooting mode,
2) Continuous (approx. 2.5 frames per second (ISO HI 1 is auto processed to reduce noise, which will slow release to approx. 1 frame/sec.),

10S Self Timer, 2 Second Delayed Remote (w/optional ML-L3), Quick Response Remote (w/optional ML-L3)

Nikon D3100 shutter "problem"?


Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

How to use camera to take pictures remotely?


If you're using a wireless remote, set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response mode shoots as soon as you press the button on the remote. The delayed mode waits two seconds for you to hide your hand behind your back before it shoots.

If you're using a wired remote, you don't have to do anything different. Just use the button on the remote instead of the button on the camera.

If you want to run the camera under computer control, you'll have to use Nikon CapturePro or an equivalent program.

How do I take a picture with my d40 using the remote?


Set the Shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote shoots the picture as soon as you press the button, Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to allow you to hide the remote behind your back.

Shooting Mode is on page 32 of my copy of the manual.
