"D7000 Battery Grip"


US
          

I bought the MB-D11 Battery Grip for my D7000 and I really like it so far. It allows you to space out your fingers to get a more comfortable feel, and the extra shutter button for the portrait orientation is great! It does add some weight to the camera, but not enough to make we want to return it. I just wish it added some more fps's!

To be fair, if you shoot 14 bit RAW the D7000 already has a better fps out of the box than the D300s with grip and the D700 without.

What do you think of the build quality of the grip?

Where is the least expensive place to order one from. I hate not having a grip. I'm in Israel on a trip and can't stand horizontal shots because it just doesn't feel right.

Ditto - need a grip quick! Most of my stills are portrait and I really miss the vertical trigger setup. Plus the video I shoot means multiple batteries are a plus.

It is very nice. Has rubber where your fingers will sit and a nice thickness as well. It barely wobbles on the camera. It has two dials for changing shutter speed, aperture, etc. and has a nob that you can use to adjust the focus point. Overall, a very nice piece of equipment!

I just got yesterday by mail the grip (MB-D11). I ordered it from www.cyberphoto.fi (a Swedish net shop). The price was absolutely lowest I´ve so far found (215 euros + 7 euros from mailing costs)

I had a battery grip in my previous DSRL (D80) and did like it. So, I decided to take it to my D7000, too. Now the new package is better at least in my hands. When mounting a bigger glass it is also a bit sturdier.

I´m afraid that the battery grip does not increase the fps. So they say in manuals. Anyway, it´s good to have a double battery resource when wandering in the nature

Just got my new mb-d11 and love it. Does anyone know if the neoprene pouch was designed to hold the grip or just the battery pack?

Not the grip but the battery pack. As you noticed there are tw kind of "packs". The other for Nikon battery and the other for AA-batteries.

So you have always one outside the gri

I want one... but the price... ($349 here and we are basically at parity with USD)
It does not add enough for it's price.
An extra battery ? BUT compared to the D90 grip it makes charging 1 of the batteries a pain in the rump. So I'd probably forget the second battery idea.

As far as i can tell the only real pro's are :
- The ability to use AA batteries (pointless for me)
- Better portrait ergonomics ... vs. extra bulk/weight

The 3rd party ones will be out soon enough, cheaper, same features.

With two batteries how long could you shoot the D7000 for? One battery seems to be good for 1000 shots.

As I wrote earlier, www.cyberphoto.fi asks 215 euros of the MB-D11 grip. I got one. I´m totally satisfied with it.

One aspect of having a grip is the AA battery option, meaning you're never worried about lack of ability to charge up, because the availablity of AA's is almost universal.

I was wondering if the grips came with the 2 different battery trays or do I have to buy the AA tray separately?

regarding the design of the grip. does it allow the use of the battery in the camera together with the grip batteries. or does the camera battery have to come off?

thank you!
