That is very cool... auto firing with remote shutter release...

Yes, we need to change to 'Focus Priority Release', then make sure you choose the focus mode correctly.

For example, if you choose AF-C for focus priority in a1, make sure you use AF-C mode, not AF-S mode if your AF-S mode is set to release regardless of the subject is in focus or not.

Otherwise, your camera could then be taking pictures all the time.

I now understood how to 'lock the shutter':
On the MC-DC2 equivalent of corded remote control, push the button down, then move the slider to keep the push-button in depressed position.

I have just ordered a third party MC-DC2 equivalent for my D7000 from Amazon, it is the cheapest Neewer release, cost £2.44 from the UK site.
