Hi there.

 Does anyone have any experience with this model on D850?

https://www.amazon.c...ljaz10cnVl&th=1

It seems a lot cheaper than other Nikon models (with /without cable).
Whitch devices are you using for long exposures?

Best regards and enjoy your weekend
Jesper.

I don't but peace of mind is an important asset.

 

For those on a budget, I recommend this:

Cheaper in Europe: 160€

These cheap third-party remotes tend to work just fine when new, but the 10-pin connector soon corrode and start getting unreliable. When you buy your third, you will definitely wish you had bought a MC-30 instead. All those interval settings are of more use for the Canon crowd as a D850 has a built-in intervalometer.

You have a very expensive camera. Why would you skimp on a remote shutter release?

In my view, its not to do with money but reliability, 
quality, and performance through and through.

I'm using an MC-30 on my D700's and find it's all I need or want.  It simply does the job.  It doesn't work if I'm including myself in a photo or if I'm more than a few feet away from the camera.

 

With a few exceptions on accessories I stick with Nikon products as they're designed and engineered to work with their products exclusively...I've never been disappointed in Nikon quality if I do my part and know what I'm buying.

 It doesn't if I'm more than a few feet away from the camera.

In that case, I use PocketWizard's PLUS 3
— good to a hundred plus feet.

Same difference. You get what you pay for. One has to presume that the OP had quality imaging in mind when they opted for a top of the line, pro quality camera. I have the same reaction when I see posts from D5/Z7/D850 users complaining about the cost of cards or batteries. They've just blown the rent money on a top of the line camera and they want to use drugstore memory cards.

I'm sorry that I tricked your reaction/recentment.

I collect Rolex watches and could never dream of putting non-original parts on them. That said, I have no problem buying an unoriginal cleaning cloth for both the Rolex or my Nikon cameras.
When I was an advertising photographer (I'm now retired) with Sinar P 13x18 cm I always used nose grease and not an expensive star filter, as a fog filter, I used the trick to breathe on the lens.
I'm not talking here about amateurish snobbery, but solely about experience and common sense.
I asked about the experiences of this forum, I was not out to start a discussion.
Best regards
Jesper

OK, you got me. I'm officially chastised. I'll go over to a neutral corner and cry on my Casio. :D

 

Enjoy your new camera!
