Nikon MC-30A £68, $65
Nikon has designed this remote controller to match its highestperforming cameras like the D4s. As such, it boasts fully pro build quality, but is only compatible with cameras that have 10-pin connectors. The controller unit feels rugged and robust, and the 80cm connection cable is heavy-duty. Meanwhile, the lockable two-stage shutter button has an excellent and precise feel to it, unlike that of the cheaper MC-DC2 controller.
However, while performance and build quality are excellent, the price is very steep for what is, essentially, an extremely basic remote controller. It lacks any advanced functions whatsoever, looking something of a poor relation to the Hama DCCS Timer Remote and Phottix TR-90, both of which are rather cheaper.
It’s very robust and simple to use but, ultimately, it’s a very basic controller for upmarket cameras
