Excerpt: I previously purchased third party grips for my D600 at considerably reduced prices. They looked good but did not perform well. I was concerned that electrical problems would damage my camera. The Nikon MB-D14 works as advertised. I like the additional weight and bulk. The camera feels balanced in my hands. You can shoot from a vertical or horizontal perspective with full access to all controls.
Pros: Adds Flexibility Camera, Adds Flexibly, Easy to Use, Good Balance
Excerpt: I weighed purchasing this battery grip versus some of the aftermarket versions, and decided I didn't want a piece of equipment to fail just when I needed it the most. Nikon hasn't let me down yet, and this proved true here as well. A very well made product that functions exactly as advertised. The shutter release button is a bit more sensitive than the one on the D600, but I expect to get used to that with a little use.
Excerpt: It will provide you a better handling of the camera, besides giving you the ability to shoot twice the amount of pictures.<br />Regardless of what you would use the camera for, I will find hard to believe one can deplete the power on both batteries.<br />I originally had a battery grip for my first DSLR (D7000), and now I am extremely pleased with the battery grip on my D600.
Excerpt: I purchased this because, now that i use much heavier lenses, it is helpful to have an additional shutter release button on the bottom so i do not have to reach all the way over when taking portrait shots. In addition, this provides me with twice the battery life. However, this grip is not flush with the camera. I purchased nikon based on reviews for other products stating that the mount is not flush for other products.
Excerpt: The price was right, the item was right, and the shipping time was awesome! I got this in time to take it to Texas for my granddaughter's graduation and I had no fear of not having adequate battery power. I could and did shoot to my heart's content. That took a load of my shoulders. This is my first grand to graduate and was a really big deal. Thanks for such great customer service and shipping. You Rock!
