I recently upgraded from a D300 to a D600. I could bracket 9 frames for HDR with the D300, but with the new D600 I can only bracket 3 frames.

I can bracket more frames with the D600 by getting another product. I am considering the following two choices:

CamRanger: http://www.camranger.com/

Promote Control: http://www.promotesystems.com/

Both products are around $300. Both would allow up to 40 frames or more brackets. The CamRanger does much more than the Promote Control.

Here is a YouTube overview of the CamRanger:

The advantage of the Promote Control is the speed of frame capture because it can use a second shutter release cable. The CamRanger is limited to the USB connection.

Here are two YouTube videos that demonstrate the difference between the USB only and the optional shutter release cable:

USB only: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d7M636-l6Y

With second shutter cable: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zg2Y-KtcQM

The CamRanger is closer to the slower Promote Control operation.

With the Promote Control I could capture 15 frames in 10 seconds. With the CamRanger I could capture 15 frames in 25 seconds.

My questing is how important is the faster capture speed for HDR? Would I loose anything with the slower HDR capture speed?
