D7000 with IR remote, getting frustrated.
Ah, see I knew it was something stupid like that!!
changed it to 'quick response' and works like a charm.
I should have read the manual more to
Thanks for your response
Are you sure your camera is in 'quick response remote' mode? bcoz it should not happen in this mode. In 'quick response remote' mode shutter should get released immediately once ML-L3 shutter release button is pressed. Looks like you camera is set to 'delayed mode' which releases shutter after 2 sec. Check page 81-81 of manual. Hope this helps..
