I use it for macro too as long as you have stationary subjects that would allow you to shoot that way, say flowers and such. Might be kind of hard to use MLU/Cable release while chasing down butterflies though... :smile:Jeff, I was thinking of landscape and macro work.
Crystall, there's no need to do that. I've been running a year and half without changing batteries or removing them when they're not being used.Gretchen,
I received an MC-36 for Christmas from my husband. My only issue with it is that there isn't a power button. Therefore, you have to remove the batteries when not in use to prevent battery drain. Otherwise, it is a nifty tool.
Yeah I also got the MC-30 and it is doing good. Since I recently bought a Macro lens and the MC-30 really helps in my Macro Shooting. A must have for any photographers bag it is!Yep. MC-30. Simple and gets the job done. For looooong exposures I just lock the MC-30 release down and use my watch to time exposure.
These electronic shutter releases aren't cheap (I long for the days when a mechanical release could be had for $5) but they are a required item in every photographer's bag.
I picked the ADIDT M1 remote cord recently. It's 2.6 feet long, allows for a half press or a full press, and supports shooting in continuous mode. I searched for an etailer for you, and am sorry I did, because Virtual Village offers it for a third of the price I paid at San Jose Camera :-(. Oh, well, that'll teach me to not to make impulse buys in the future.I still need to get a short cord for tripod use. Anyone have any experience with the generic ones?
