Excerpt: This is the alloy metal Nikon version. While the other plastic ones may work, I was concerned when using on a tripod and the pressure on the socket. I wanted the real thing. Although I understand the construction may cost more I believe Nikon has priced this rather high.
Excerpt: This is a very solid and high quality product. If you plan on doing a lot of hand held shooting this is a must. However, I would definitely not recommend this product if most of your shooting is done on a tripod.
Excerpt: This is a nice accessory for the D800. It allows for more shooting time with a 2nd battery and the emergency use of using AA batteries. My main gripe is the cost, it seems a bit high for what it is, but it's built well and works as intended (makes doing portrait mode much easier).
Excerpt: Every camera I own has a grip. Since I have big hands, and use the camera daily … I just like the way it feels when I walk with it in my hand. Adorama, has never let me down on any of the products I have purchased.
Excerpt: Finally bought the battery grip, due to high price point but after a long time of waitingand Nikon finally drop the prices but it was still expensive. In the end, if I think about the price too long and then I would wait another year. Have fun enjoy life and make something out of it!
Excerpt: This is great if you're out on long shoots and need extra the battery power without stopping to change batteries in the middle of a shoot. It also adds stability to your camera when using heavy lenses and provides a vertical grip that is nice for shooting verticals.
