    Remote Shutter Release with D500

    What do all of you use as a remote shutter trigger on the D500? I used to use the IR ML-L3 on my old D7000 but the D500 doesn't support it.

    The only time I typically use one is when shooting fireworks. So I don't need anything fancy...the ML-L3's features worked fine for me.

    Suggestions?

    If you have a smart phone then use the UMA app to see the shot and fire the camera. I used it today to shoot a group shot of my camera group on a photo walk.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Does that app a) fire the shutter with no lag? and b) allow you to hold it open when in the "Bulb" mode?

    Never have tried it in Bulb mode but it does fire with no noticeable lag. The app is free so it will not cost you anything to try it. What I really like is the ability to download a shot directly to your phone and do a quick edit there and send it somewhere in a message or even to Facebook.

    I use these. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ss_Remote.html

    It's cable connected to the hot shot connector but the RF wireless allows me to trigger from distances and without requiring line of site to the camera. It's instantaneous and with the camera in Constant mode and the trigger on Bulb it's like holding the shutter button down - it fires until I hit the trigger again. Same trigger works on every Nikon and Sony I own, I just have to switch the connecting cable to the proper type. They have DIP switches to allow you to use multiple cameras with separate triggers. Setting the switches the same allows triggering of two cameras in separate locations with one press of the button. They've never failed me.

    Thanks Jake. That looks like a nice piece... and not too expensive either. Definitely one to consider.

    What is the UMA App? Sorry to bump a thread that's nearly a month old, but I'm searching for a way to remotely trigger the shutter of my D500.

    I'm thinking that should read "WMU", the Windows Mobile Utility Application.

    If you are talking about the Nikon WMU app, it does not support the D500. With the D500 and other new bodies, Nikon has gone to Snapbridge. It's a little rough around the edges right now, so I am still using my TriggerTrap while I wait for Nikon to work out some of the bugs with Snapbridge. TriggerTrap works great with my D500.
