Excerpt: I was prepared to use my camera in cooler weather for several hours. I kept 8 in my pocket, staying warm. In the event the batteries got cold in the camera their output would drop. If this happened I had 8 warm in my pocket and it would take a few seconds to exchange them.
Excerpt: Frankly, the extra battery power is great, but I don't need it for the types of photography I do... but that extra shutter release makes vertical shooting a breeze. I am shooting basketball right now for a local paper.
Pros: Easy to Install, Fast Recharge, Long-Lasting, Reliable, Solid Construction
Excerpt: I realize there are third-party manufacturers who offer very similar products for the D700/300/s camera. However, after buying one of those in the past, and having it fail on me on the first day of use - I finally bought the Nikon MB-D10.
Pros: Easier To Grip, Easy to Install, Reliable, Solid Construction
Excerpt: Not much to say. I bought the Nikon Grip and not the lesser expensive knock off and I am not sorry. The quality is what I expected from Nikon and I did not want to take a chance to save a few, well a chunk of change. It really make handling my 300s easier when the 80-400 is on it.
Excerpt: I order the used grip to save money. It arrived in like new condition in the original box with all of the documentation. I used the grip and with an additional battery to shoot a fund raising event over the weekend. All worked as promised.
Pros: Easy to Install, Long-Lasting, Solid Construction
Excerpt: I bought this used. It was in great condition. As others have written, it works well in the portrait position. It provides you with good leverage holding the camera; it does add weight but nothing outrageous.
Excerpt: This is a first for me ... Great for vertical shots ! For longer power availability too ! Very well designed for a precise fit. Adds weight for better balance with long lenses. I don't know how I "lived" without it before !!!
