Hello,

I would like to experiment self-portraits. My remote control device is the ML-L3. I recently found out that contrary to what is said on page 82 in the user manual (Focusing in Remote Control Mode), one must be in mode «Manual» to get the expected result.

I have tried the ML-L3 while being in Aperture Priority mode. If I press half-way the shutter-release button (focus), then the focus stays locked. There are two manners to unlock the focus, 1) swith from «A» to «M» and back to «A» and 2) set the release mode dial to «S» and focus then swith the mode dial to «Remote Control» and then use the ML-L3.

I would appreciate if others could comment on this. Moreover, I would like to know if there exists a clear and complete explanation (e.g. Nikon) on how to use the ML-L3.
Thank you. Jean-François
