Buying a different kit and this cable allowed me to save some money. The cable works and fits my D7000 without a problem. The only thing I can suggest to the manufacturer would be to make the camera connection an L connector. This current design provides a challenge when working with an L bracket for ballheads. As far as I can tell though this is a problem even with the cable that comes with the Pixel unit for this connection type. The plug sticks out beyond the bracket and forces the camera to be not centered in the ballhead. Not a problem just an inconvenience. Shipping was faster than expected.
This works as described. Use it on my Nikon D90. This plugs into the GPS port on the camera. If you're not paying attention, you can plug this into the camera the wrong way and possible damage the port. I've done it and then wondered why it wasn't working. No damage to my camera, but pay attention when plugging it in.
Also, I've been looking at cheap intervalometers on Amazon lately since using my cell phone & trigger trap is not always ideal for longer time lapses. A lot of cheap intervalometers have complaints that the MC-DC2 plug is junk and gets stuck in the camera. This product does NOT have that issue. Looks and feels solid as far as I can tell. Had it for about 2 months now and no issues.
I purchased this cable on the off chance that it would work with a Nikon D7100 and the miniEngine--an open source time-lapse controller. It does work with my Nikon D7100 on the GPS port and the miniEngine Time-lapse controller works really well with it too! I'm using it out in the field so much shooting timeless that I'm finding that I'm starting to misplace the cable that I'm going to order a second one :)
Update: On my second and third orders I've received the wrong part. I was trying to purchase this cable and I was sent the MC-CL2 Remote instead--I really don't need the remote--I just need the cable. Looking at the box it clearly says remote and the box for a the cable should say cable--I'm not sure how this can be mistaken--but I guess in the warehouse Amazon may have everything coded to "bins" and the people we pick/pack/ship may not have any time to read the box labels and process the info--I don't blame the people--I blame whoever miscoded the bin :(
