The remote cable RM-CB1 can be connected to the power battery holder HLD-3. The RM-CB1 remote cable cannot be connected to the camera body directly.

Remote Shutter release, the camera fires continuously.I'm using single shot setting on the camera & remote. Cable in GPS port. No buttons pushed & unit starts shooting.

You really need to let us know the make/model of your camera. My Canon camera has a separate socket for the remote trigger... You may simply be plugged into the wrong place.

How do I take a 30 second time exposure for Northern Lights tripod

Fit the camera to the tripod. Set the camera to timed exposure and use either a cable release, or a remote control to open the shutter and either release the lock on the cable release or press the remote control a second time.

Cable release problem

The D3100 works with the MC-DC2 or compatible remote. See page 177 of the manual:

Basically, you plug the remote in, then use the button on the remote just as you'd use the shutter release button.

Ir remote will not release shutter

Make sure you set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. See "Release Mode" in the manual (page 65 in my copy). Also, make sure you have a clear line-of-sight between the remote and the sensor on the front of the camera.

Is ther a remote for the nikon s3000

No. Nikon does not make a remote for the S3000. Its shutter release button is not threaded for an old-fashioned cable release, and there is no provision for remote operation via the USB connection.

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

Nikon ML-L3 set up for Nikon D90?

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 release, while delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To change the camera's release mode, hold down the release-mode button to the right of the LCD panel on the top of the camera (marked with the overlapping rectangles) and turn the command wheel on the back of the camera. The icon at the top-right corner of the LCD panel will change. The quick-response remote mode is indicated by a picture of the remote, the delayed remote mode is indicated by both the remote and the self-timer (one-handed clock).

Need help using the wireless cable release

I assume you're refering to the ML-L3 wireless remote control.

Change the shooting mode on the camera by holding down the shooting mode button and turning the main command dial. You want either delayed remote or quick-response remote. The quick-response remote fires the shutter as soon as you press the button on the remote, the delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera fires.

Remotes working sporatically

Your description suggests bad/dirty contacts inside the remotes and jammed volume buttons on one of them. Cleaning the rubber pads and the circuit boards on all of the remotes might solve the problem.
Use some ethyl or isopropyl alcohol and cottonwool to clean them.

By the way, here's a nice way to test a remote using your mobile phone's camera:

Turn the camera on, point the remote towards the camera lens so you can see it on the mobile's display.

Look at the display on your mobile phone and press buttons on your remote - you should see bluish/greenish flashes from your remote's emmiter each time you press a button on the remote (the camera on your mobile shows infrared light from the remote as visible light on the display - if it doesn't do so in the normal mode, try the night mode for the camera instead).

If you press a button and there are no flashes, that button probably has a bad/dirty contact.

if the remote is making flashes even when the buttons are released, this means that a button is jammed (you need to clean the rubber pads and the housing, especially the holes where the buttons come through as there's probably some dirt that keeps the button pressed in, which causes the volume to go up/down all by itself).

hope this helps...

Nikon 5700+remote cable release

I am using the same remote on both a Nikon 990 and 995 coolpix cameras. I had trouble with the 990 but reset the unit to factory default and it appears to work in manual mode. The nikon site says that it may take 10 seconds or so for the camera to relize that it is not connected to a computer via the usb cord.
