That's because the ML-L3 doesn't work with the D300, only with the less expensive models. Nikon has several different remotes available for the D300.

I do not now how to set my remote control mode on my Nikon3100

There is no remote mode on the D3100. The D3100 doesn't work with the ML-L3 infrared remote. It uses the MC-DC2 wired remote or equivalent. Simply plug the MC-DC2 into the D3100. You can then use the button on the remote the same way you normally use the shutter release button on the camera.

Fitting infrared attachment on D3100

The ML-L3 cannot be used with the D3100. An alternative wireless remote is this one. It's not an external IR port but a radio receiver.

How to set up Nikon ML-L3 on D700

You don't need to do anything on the ML-L3. You need to set the release mode on the D700 to the remote mode. Press the release mode dial lock release and turn the release mode dial (pages 27, 77, and 80 in my copy of the manual). If you need a manual, you can download one at

How to use remote trigger to take a photo with Nikon D300

I'm going to assume you mean the ML-L3 remote. If I'm wrong, please post a comment specifying the remote you are using.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick remote fires the camera when you press the button on the release. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds to let you hide your hand behind your back before it fires the camera.

The ML-L3 is an infrared remote, so it must be pointed in the general direction of the infrared receiver on the front of the camera.

I have the nikom ML-L3 for my Nikon D40 and can't find instructions on how to make it work on my camera

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.

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.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to

The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

I just bought a ML-L3 remote to work with my Nikon D60 SLR camera. I have no idea how to get it to work.

Set the release mode to one of the remote modes. Look in your camera manual under either "Shooting Mode" or "Release Mode."
