    Thanks folks for the advise.
    They have the software to do it.

    Hi all,

    i am a d90 user and im currently looking for a shutter release and would like to know the use of the following product

    -Nikon ML-L3 , Nikon MC-DC2
    i am not sure how this works, do i just need both of them or just the Nikin ML-L3 will do. What difference does it make if i have the Nikon MC-DC2 ?
    i have other shutter release equips in mind, mainly those wired ones from the mass sales department where they range from 16-22 but i dont know whats the main difference between in brand. eg, hercules, apurture, Phottix. any of you have used the shutter release and how have you find them ?

    The D90 shutter release can be triggered either by
    1) Infra-red signal
    2) Signal from the appropriate port at the side of the camera

    For #1, most use the Nikon ML-L3 remote, which is cheap and good. There are 3rd party alternatives, but really... for $16 or thereabouts (for the ML-L3), why bother with the others?

    For #2, can use the corded remote (like MCDC2), or 3rd party alternatives as well. Some 3rd party ones allow you to plug in a receiver, and then use a trigger that operates on radio signals. The advantage over the ML-L3 is that you don't require line of sight to the camera.

    One other downside of the ML-L3 is that it is fairly common. If you attend some big photo outings with many other Nikon users, it is possible that someone accidentally triggers your camera

    hello guys no time no see..

    just wanna check, is it true that the cross-type focus point can only with large aperture that is at least f/2.8 and above? i.e. f/2.8, f/2.0, f/1.4.

    Cross type point is more sensitive than non-crossed. on the contrary, it should work better than the rest that are non-crossed if lens used has a smaller max aperture say f/3.5, f/4 , f/5.6 etc.
    Something to note is Nikon says its dslrs require maximum f/5.6 or faster. That said, anything that is max f/5.6 or larger, the focus point should work reliably. Imho, I have tried 2x TC on a slow lens that gives ~f11 and it could still lock focus in bright sunlight.

    so if i get you correctly, the cross type focus can only with with large aperture of minimum f/5.6 and above? i.e. f/5.6, f/4, f/2.8, f/2.0, f/1.4?

    Dun treat it as a can or cannot. Consider the probability that cross-type AF point will perform BETTER than the non cross type ones in smaller F-stop is higher.

    I think you should read his post more carefully.

    It's not that cross-type AF sensor can only work with lens max aperture of f/5.6 or above.

    you are saying that the cross type AF can perform better than the non-cross type right? i cannot figure out what you meant by "is higher".

    f/5.6 or faster? faster refers to larger aperture right? f/5.6, f/4, f/2.8.

    Yes. Faster means larger aperture.

    The probability of {A} will performs better than {B} in {condition C} is higher.

    Because ovaltinemilo did not say that the cross-type AF sensors can only work at f/5.6 and faster...

    Nikon DSLRs do not only have cross-type AF sensors
