It's so small, I need to do something to hold onto it.

The should have been a little pouch that came with it. You maybe attach the pouch to your camera strap. You will also need to use the viewfinder cover, you you may want to buy or make a bigger pouch to hold both items and attach it to your camera strap.

I have had the ML-L3 since I got the D70 a number of years ago. It's about the least expensive camera device Nikon makes!!!

I keep mine in my camera bag.

I Super Glued it to the bottom of my camera! (Not really)

I misplace mine all the time. Usually sticking it in a pocket and forgetting!

Shoot, shoot and shoot some more!

Hey, I thought I was the only one who did that! Ok, maybe my lens cap too. (But who's counting?)

The ML-L3 is basically a tripod acccessory. I keep it in the tripod bag pouch along with the allen wrenches, eyepiece cap and other odds and ends needed for tripod use.

I find using good equipment I have no issues with misplacing camera or tripod bag And if you don't carry any equipment bag, to go light, why carry this type of accessory???

Respectfully,
Frank

One more thought. If you find yourself constantly misplacing the ML-L3 no matter what then buy this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Remote-Shutter-Release-ML-L3-Nikon/dp/B003LR6QUM/ref=sr_1_2?s=photo&ie=UTF8&qid=1313018292&sr=1-2

It works and looks just like the Nikon and at that price, $3, you could lose a couple of them a year and not worry about it

Yes! I have one of those. (If I haven't misplaced it!) Best rig I have yet owned for carrying a camera around on.

I have spent at least $50 on these remotes because I keep loosing them. With the latest one I drilled a small hole in the corner away from the button, threaded a bright orange thread through it, and just strap it to the tripod when I use it. If I inadvertently misplace it the orange thread helps me find it. It is really a shame that Nikon has not modified it to include a small eye-hook.

Hey again,

Ok, if it's a genuine Nikon ML-L3 remote, it comes with a carrying pouch with a slit on the back so it fits your camera strap.

Works 4 me

They're so cheap, buy 3 or 4 of 'em.
