"Nikon MC-DC2 and Nikon D7000"


Espoo, FI
          

Hi Nikon D7000-friends. I bought a Nikon MC-DC2 remote cord for my D7000. When installing there´s a total black out in my camera body. Any experiences of same kind?

I have no such problem with my MC-DC2. But...

With my old D80, I would sometimes experience a similar issue. I solved the problem with the D80 by turning off the camera before inserting the plug into the camera socket.

Sounds like there might be a short of some sort when inserting the remote plug into the body with the camera turned on.

Is the remote locked 'on'?

Howdy, Kale. Sounds like you have a problem as what you describe is not normal even if it is locked on or you push the button on the remote while plugging it in. When I plug mine in nothing changes on the camera as I believe it is a passive component and not recognized by the camera until you press the button at which time it behaves identically to the built-in shutter button.

Thanks to all for your comments. I´ll visit Nikon Finland and show them both of "the parties"; Body and MC-DC2.

I´ll be back and tell you the diagnosis

Funny things happen. This morning I connected again my remote control to the camera body. And guess what, it functioned! No idea what I did wrong earlier.

I must say that I had read of connection problems in some Nikon discussion forums here in Finland. That´s why I thought, really, that it is more generic. Lucky me (and us Nikonians), it is not!

I have been totally satisfied with my D7000 since I bought it in November 2010. My earlier Nikon bodies are D50 and D80.

Today, I received a third party MC-DC2 remote shutter release with sliding lock function. It cost £2.44 including shipping from Amazon UK and works really well.

I now happy with it because it can set up a 'Focus Trap' for me to shoot with 'Auto-Firing' in Continuous High-speed Release mode.

No offence to Original Nikon MC-DC2, just wonder how can they sell things for £30 that can be beaten by £2.44 from third party?

Hopefully my switch will serve my D7000 for a long time, with careful use and storage.

You do know that when using this remote, you do not change the Release Mode dial. That is set to REMOTE when using the IR remote. Instead, you just shoot S, CL or CH, and the switch fires the shutter.

By the way. my MC-DC2 is not from Nikon. It was a $12 imitation from China.

If you do not use AF-ON for the AEL / AFL button, you cannot set up a 'focus trap'. This is because whilst shutter release is locked down, the camera will seek focus and shoot non-stop.
