Anybody here know if D800 will support ML-L3 remote. I find the "professional" remote triggers to be very inconvenient when shooting on a tripod. I never understood why Nikon does not allow functionality available on lower end cameras for D300 and upward...

A check of the Nikon web site shows the D800 only supports the ML-3. The D4 is the only camera model that I see were one can use both the ML-3 and ML-L3.
So you have to use an IR release that has a 2 stage release, no IR sensor time out, a 360 degree rotatible sensor, 2 communication channels, and an interrupt trigger. Yes, a little hard to attach, but more operating features.
I have a D70 and ML-L3 I am willing to trade even up.

I agree. The small ML-L3 remote is a much better approach for MLU shooting than having to use a cord like the MC-30. I can't tell you how many times I've been shooting on a windy day and had to contend with the MC-30 cord blowing around. I use the ML-l3 with my D7000 and really like it. Dave Jolley

There are 3rd party RF units that are cheaper and offer more communication channels and greater control range. Many of these units use a converter plug to allow for the use of other camera models with just purchasing a a different cord.
