2-Stage triggering works as expected for most modern cameras when using an ACC cable.  A few exceptions are detailed below:

Plus IV Operational Considerations:

1) Nikon Cameras with MC-DC2 ports do not provide half-press, or full press output through the MC-DC2 port.  This means that any camera using an N-MCDC2-ACC cable won't be able to provide the "half press your remote camera from the camera in your hand" operation when using the shutter release button.  This affects the following cameras:


Note: This does NOT impact half-press or full-press INPUT to the camera, as this works just fine with the N-MCDC2-ACC cable on a remote camera.

2) Nikon Cameras with a MC-DC1 port using an NM4-ACC cable do not provide "half-press" output, but it does provide "full-press" output.  This affects the following cameras:


3) Compatible with flashes up to 300 Volts.
