Unlike my D300 and the D700 and I think most other Nikon DSLRs the D800 appears to be missing an external DC input. Strange choice for Nikon's first "real" video enabled DSLR where long run times are essential in a production environment. It seems like the external power in has been replaced with a headphone socket and a microphone input. Am I missing something here? I haven't spent much time with the camera yet but searchign the web did not immediately shed any light...

I'm wondering just what the options there are for external power to the D800. The battery grip seems like the only option and I've heard conflicting reports that live view does not work with the grip...

I use the DTSE grip with the 3900Mah battery. Live view works perfectly well if there is a Nikon battery in the camera body.
