Nikon makes the ML-3 IR release. It's rather pricey.
Any 10 pin socket compatible release will work. If it's listed for other 10 pin socket cameras, it will work on the D800.
There are a lot for sale on eBay. B&H and other online stores list a few choices too. I got a Promaster brand RF release at my local camera store; I'm happy with it.

Ken, I saw some reports on DPReview and an Amazon.com review that the RFN-4s remote doesn't allow bracketed bursts on the D800. The claim is that the camera locks when shooting a burst. What is your experience with this? Dave Jolley

Dave I have experienced good and bad. I have had the problem you state...but it seems not to be all the time. I use it one shot ..and .3 brackets...not a problem..I have had issues with 7 brackets...and I cant say at 5 brackets. I;ll try it at a shoot tomorrow..and report in I dont need the burst rate..in my interiors..... But I can say, that I did not buy it for the burst....I got it for the remote...hands off, remote feature...in order to do a better job, in my shooting interiors. I;m ussually checking the histogram between shots...if nothing els..just to see whats happening......or should I say...OH ####...what;s happening

As further clarification, Nikon's website lists both the MC-30 and MC-30A along with the MC-36 and MC-36a. All four are compatible with the D800/D800E with the MC-36 selling for $160 and the MC-36A for $230 on Nikons USA website. The MC-30A and MC-36A use updated materials from the previous models according to Nikon's information.
