Hi Nikonians,

I called in on my way to do some landscape work to buy the above. I settled on a non- Nikon release as the cable was longer.

Plugged it all up and nothing. It states it IS for the D3100 and has a 2m cable for those times when you need to take a seat and wait.

I would appreciate any help as to what I am doing wrong. The release is Hahnel HRN 280 (for Nikon)it plugs into the accessory terminal.

Is there a setting perhaps (to let the camera know it is connected)

It doesnt seem require batteries.

Thanks folks,
