I’ve recently received a D800 and would like to test its focusing properties. I know I can use the timer mode, but I have an MC-20 Remote Cord (I used on my F100) that I’d like to use for testing the D800. The D800 manual on page 390 states:
"Extension Cord MC-21: Can be connected to ML-3 or MC-series 20, 22, 23, 25, 30, or 36. Only one MC-21 can be used at a time (length 3 m/9 ft 10 in.)." (This is the only reference to the MC-20 I can find in the manual.)
I’m not sure if this is saying I can connect the MC-20 to the camera safely.
Anyone know if it would be safe to connect the MC-20 to the D800? If it won’t cause harm, I can test out the functionality.
