When using the remote cord MC DC2 to trigger the shutter, you DO NOT set the Release Mode Dial to REMOTE. Instead, you set it to S, for single frame. REMOTE on the Release Mode dial, however, only pertains to the Infra Red remote release.

I had to make a trip to my camera store to learn this. It seems pretty counter-intuitive to control an accessory called a Remote Cord the same as taking a normal picture.

Just thought some of you would like to know. I specifically chose to buy a wired cord because the simplicity and reliability. I can walk around the camera anywhere and take a shot. Usually, I am in front of it, adjust the things when I want to fire off a shot.
