the cable release is excellent if you are shooting at slow shutter speeds, or doing closup macro photography, use mirror up on precomposed shots, but for normal everday use. it is inconvenient. have you ever seen a photographer on tv using a cable release.
you see them using monopods, to hold heavy long lens.
but i venture no cable release.
if you want to take good, clean, sharp photos use correct lens, shutter speed and aperture.
do this, put d2x in shutter priority, go outside and have your subject with the sun over your right or left shoulder.
set camera speed at 1/500 of a second if good light and point camera at your subject and look in viewfinder at what aperture the camera has picked for this shot.
if you are happy with what you have , hold camera in your right hand, with your left hand holding lens and your elbows tucked as close to your body as possible. the palm of your left hand should be under the lens barrel and facing up toward the sky. this will give stability.
now slowly depress shutter button, focus and then finish your shot.
if you take your time hold camera in some position similar to my description and depress shutter, focus and shoot. you should get good result.
remeber you must hold camera steady until shot is completed, do not move until you hear shutter release.
let us know if this helps to get sharper photos.
