    Nikon D800 Remote Release

    Is there a remote shutter release control for the Nikon D800 that also works when using HDR shooting?

    Check this link, IMHO it's the easiest way to make HDR with D800, it also controls the shutter
    remotely.

    Don't want more gear, just something compact and simple.

    The regular MC-30 remote release should work.

    The camera takes two images for one shutter button press.

    I can't set up my D800E to test it because I have NEF configurated and HDR won't work with NEF.
    I don't want to go through the hassle of reconfiguring the camera.

    I checked the owner's manual (page 390) re the MC30, and found no restrictions on its use or operation.

    MC30 $40 to $50 at KEH: http://www.keh.com/search?store=came...price=0&r=SE&e

    Nikon D800 Remote Release


    From mbroomfield (Mike) I learned that Live View also works with c3 Self-timer >> Number of shots.
    Which means that you also have this self-timer automatised HDR possibility without any need of a remote at all:


    MENU button >> CUSTOM SETTING MENU >> e5 Auto bracketing set >> e.g. AE & flash >> OK
    BKT button and rotate the main (back) command dial >> choose the number of shots >> e.g. "3F" (= three EVs centered around the correct balanced exposure)
    BKT button and rotate the sub-command (front) dial >> choose the exposure increment >> e.g. 1.0 EV

    Release Mode dial on Self-timer
    MENU button >> CUSTOM SETTING MENU >> c3 Self-timer delay e.g. 2s >> OK >> Number of shots e.g. 3 >> OK >> Interval between shots e.g. 0,5s >> OK

    Live View capture (focus and shutter release)


    The trick is that by combining Live View with c3 Self-timer >> Number of shots the mirror stays up during the entire sequence and you avoid mirror slap.

    I have the CamRanger, which Manouch has mentioned, and it works well.

    For something less expensive and much more compact, I also have this little gem, which works very well - SMDV RFN-4s Slim Wireless Remote for D800
