#2. "RE: Nikon D80 cable shutter MC-DC1: cable or camera malfunction??" In response to In response to 1
thanks a lot for your reply, and sorry about the real name..I can perfectly understand and I like it so I changed it
I thought it was some sort of short, so I asked the vendor for a refund and ended up buying a better quality one from Amazon.
I'm into astrophotography and during winter I like to leave the camera outside taking series of long exposures attached to the telescope and me inside taking the pictures via usb to the computer. Sadly there's no way of triggering the shutter for bulb mode via usb so the only alternative is using a timer remote shutter.
