D800 remote? Anyone know if the D800 will be able to use the ML-L3 remote that works with the D700, D90, etc?

Would be nice not to have to use the more expensive ones.

While we are on this topic, you can use aperture as a remote over a USB cable.

Set your camera in tether mode to write directly in P2P mode (versus as USB mass storage) and start a tether session in aperture. Same with lightroom.

Get a Vello Shutterboss! It works wonders... granted it's about 100 USD but well worth it. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/749293-REG/Vello_RCW_N1_Wireless_ShutterBoss_Timer_Remote.html

No problem. Guess i'll have to check out the ML-3.

I misread ML-L3 as the ML-3 (which is what I have). My mistake.

You cannot use the ML-L3 wireless remote with the D800, nor could you with the D700. The D800, like the D700, does not have an IR receiver built into it. There are non-Nikon brand wireless solutions for the 10-pin type of remote switch that these cameras require in addition to the fairly expensive wireless ML-3 (note, not the same as the ML-L3) system from Nikon. There are also plenty of wired solutions but they must be of the 10-pin variety which is not the same as used on the D7000 and many others.
