Question about Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control

1 Answer

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 flash attached?

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).

How to set my ml-l3 remote control on my nikon d3100?


The D3100 doesn't work with the ML-L3. It uses the MC-DC2 remote cord instead.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Are the sb-900 and the sb-800 heads the same? I have a sb-800 and I want to buy teh coco ring flash with the sb-900 adapter, are both the same, will it fit the sb-800?


No it is not the same. the SB 900 is 25% bigger.
I just got a Coco ring for my SB 800 (I bougth the one for the SB 900) and it is big. But I just filled the empty space with hard foam and works wonders. I can post a photo if you want.
By the way I have a D 700. It migth fit different in other cameras.

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.

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.:-)

ML-L3 Remote control


Sadly, the ML-L3 does not work with the D700. You need to buy the much clumsier and much more expensive ML-3, which has a wireless receiver you hook to the camera and a wireless transmitter you use to fire the camera.

Lame, but true.

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!

I got one for my D40x and this is what I did :
Go into the menu, select shooting mode. You'll find you can change it from single to continuous to timer to REMOTE.


Enjoy!

Command mode to fire Speedlight SB-600 remotely from Nikon D40x


Sorry, the D40x does not have a commander mode. You'll need the SB-800 or SB-900 flash or the SU-800 commander. Alternatively, you can use the SC-28 sync cable.
