Z6: Remote Control Mess

I usually take fotos in dark buildings, using a tripod and L-bracket.

The new Z6 is not ideal for this - why is that?

You'll need a remote control for the trigger if working with tripods, however this is Nikon's answer to that requirement...

  1. MC-DC2 cable remote collides with the L-bracket - not useable, if L-bracket is attached
  2. WR-R10 does not work for the same reason - too big (and way too expensive)
  3. ML-L7 bluetooth remote would be ideal, but - is not supported by Z6 / Z7!
  4. Snapbridge? Takes about 10s to reconnect each time after camera went to sleep - very annoying!
  5. Ok, last possibility: self-timer - works, somehow - but is reset to single-shot each time after the camera went to sleep - you'll need to switch it on again manually each and every time - no persistent mode to be found in the menus

Bottom line: Nikon, a practical and functional remote control is missing for those of us working with tripods and L-brackets.

Did I miss anything?
