I have been using the 10 point wired MC remote release-forget the model number--that I've migrated from my F100>the D200>D700, finally to the D800 this fall. It seemed to work fine on the latest camera until a WV shoot in early Oct when I panicked to notice that it would not trigger the shutter no matter what I tried. Camera was fine while using it without out remote, using the 2 second delayed timer.
It was getting quickly dark so I couldn't more carefully check it out until we got back to the cabin and I discovered that the female, body mounted 10 receptor was actually pushed into the camera body and required a $125.00 repair through my local camera shop. Camera was never dropped and remote was not forced. I have no idea how it occurred.
Has anyone else experienced this? I am curious. It has me thinking I should have kept the D700 as it was bullet proof, or waited for the D600. Joel
