Anybody ever try an Interfit Strobies Delta Remote on a D800? It shows that it works with a D300 and D700, but nothing on the D800. I can't imagine that it's that much different. I want to try a remote trigger rather than a cord to reduce camera shake. If not, any other suggestions as far as remotes go?
I use an Aputure Pro Coworker, $15 on Amazon. I've used it a far away as 150 feet. The units can be used as both a wired and wireless. I've used in at 150 feet witha house between the units. One unit uses a couple of AAA cells and the other uses a 23A battery, and I remove the 23A battery to keep the battery from being discahrged. The only negative I have have about the unit.
I use Pocket Wizards if I need to remotely trigger my cameras. They use the 10 pin connector as their way of connecting with the camera body. One of the main advantages to the Pocket Wizards is that they never fail, they have a range of up to 1,600 feet, have selectable channels, and they take AA batteries, available anywhere. They also work perfectly with Nikon Speedlights for triggering off camera lighting. For any setup you will need 2 remotes and a trigger if you want to remotely fire the camera.
Well, so much for being simple. I've been looking at B&H and Adorama and they only show a few choices. I guess I've got some research to do. This is great info guy. It looks like I'd better get busy. Thanks again.

LOL, my only complaint re the RFN-4s is threading the transmitter onto the 10-pin receptor. That operation is a PITA moment for me when trying to set up for a time sensitive shot in bitter cold conditions. I've now learned to install it before I get to the shoot. Nevertheless, still a 5-star review from me on Amazon.
