Battery status?

  • Excerpt: I'm facing a pretty strange effect. The camera is set to first use the external battery, then switch to the internal. When I shoot for a few hours, means the camera is on, then I got no issues. When I turn the camera off with the grip and a standard battery in it, after an hour or so the camera top LCD shows, that the battery is dead and refuses to start. If I detach the battery and reattach it doesn't help.
  • Cons: Doesn't Fit Camera Well, Loses Battery Status, Loses Charge Quickly

  • Excerpt: I wanted to extend the grip on my camera, and looked at the Nikon (expensive) and alternate manufacturers (seems to be discouraged in reviews of the Nikon...) and decided on the Nikon. First the good: the camera does feel complete, and with a battery in the grip, it's properly balanced. The bad: 1. The battery in the grip does seem a bit loose (you can feel it move as you turn the camera). It may need a little padding. 2.

Design could be better

  • Excerpt: I like the idea of having 2 batteries along with vertical hand holding abilities. I DO NOT like the idea that the battery pack only holds one battery. This leaves one battery inside the camera body and that means the grip must be removed anytime you need to remove the battery inside the camera body. I reluctantly recommend to help balance the D7000 when using heavier lenses.
  • Pros: Long-Lasting, Solid Construction

Good product but not happy with the fit.

  • Excerpt: I believe this battery pack will last a long time being an offical Nikon product. However I am not happy with the way it fits my camera. When I flip from horizontal to verticle using the battery pack I can fell the camera shift. This causes me to constantly check the whell that locks it on to my camera to make sure it's not lose. I have used it for 8 hours straight and it didn't fall off, but I was always pushing the dial to make sure it was tight and not coming off.

Nice Addition to D7000

  • Excerpt: This grip is a nice update to the version that wnt with the D90. The surface is nice and grippy and the contour is "just right" for my hands when shooting vertically. I also like one battery stays in the camera allowing the grip to be mounted and removed more quickly. My only real complaint is the wiggle between the camera and the grip even when it is cinched down tight and the movement of the battery inside the grip that can be felt when it's in use.
  • Pros: Grippablility

Judge your use accordingly

  • Excerpt: B&H was great in their part of this purchase. They had one the cheapest prices and shipped rapidly. Nikon on the other hand has dissapoinred me. I am a convert from big heavy slr's with external battery grips, so this was a natural decision. The grip is comfortable and the vertical controls work well. I understand why the standard battery compartment had to be covered so I decided to use only the grips compartment.
  • Pros: Easy to Install
  • Cons: Doesn't Fit Camera Well, Not Reliable

It's okay

  • Excerpt: This product looks great on my camera, it gives the camera a professional look. The grip also makes the camera comfortable as there is more space for your hand. However after prolonged use, the grip gets a bit shaky and i have to keep tightening which can be annoying.
  • Pros: Looks professional, Reliable
  • Cons: Becomes shaky

Not quite up to my high expectations

  • Excerpt: The MB-D11 has been on my list of items to purchase since I acquired my D7000 back around the first of the year. I was looking for a meatier grip for my large hands, the vertical release was a secondary consideration, and the extra battery capacity a tertiary. The bad: -First I have to say that I was expecting a nearly full magnesium frame on the grip, I have to say that I am not convinced that any part of the exterior shell is Mg.
  • Cons: Doesn't Fit Camera Well
