Do I need a cable or RF release for D800E?

Hello,
I've been reading the forums about remote releases (just realised I can't use my old ML-L3 on my D00E.)

I've just seen though, that in the 'shooting menu' under D4, I can set 'exposure delay mode' to 2 seconds or more. Then, pressing the shutter, will firstly lock the mirror up, then automatically release the shutter after 2 seconds or more. (easier than the Mup function)

This is great news for me, as I wasn't happy with all the palaver involved with RF receivers, transmitters and cable

I wonder if anyone can help with something though - I'm now thinking if there is a 'hands off' way to shoot a + 30 second exposure? Will I still need to buy a cheap cable release just for those occasions? Mind, you I could live with that

Many thanks
Roy
