"D3100 Vertical Grip"



Like a few other D3100 owners out there I have been in looking for a vertical grip for my camera... looks like a company finally put one on the market... It's currently only available on amazon and ebay. I was just wondering if any other D3100 owners already bought it or whats the opinion of others that have used vertical grips.

I did find one review for it on youtube but it didn't include much in the way of feedback of actual use..

This is just my opinion but I would really be leary of using anything not Nikon or Nikon approved on my camera. When it comes to batteries I use even more caution. I would hate for a short caused be an inexpensive grip to take out my D3100.

Just .02

thats how i am as well and the reason for this thread. I would like to have opinions from people that have actual use experience with the grip.

Nikons opinion is pretty much a standard company opinion

"using the equipment will not void the warranty, but if the battery grip damages the camera, then the warranty will be voided due to miss use. Nikon encourages the usage of Nikon accessories with Nikon cameras in order to guarantee flawless performance and compatibility."

I ordered my vertical grip last week and hoping to get it in the mail today. I can post some pictures of it asap.

I bought it for $35 but it looks like the vendor increased the price to $45 probably because it has been selling really well.

Here it is. The grip is wonderful. The only issue I had was the battery cover. It felt a little loose when i pressed my hand against it. I fixed it by placing fuzzy velcro to certain locations to create a snug fit. Now feels VERY solid. Sorry about my bad iphone pics:
