Well, I give up. I received the following from BH today about the MB-D10 to which my response is Huh??
"Hello Thomas Trujillo, my name is Gabe M:
Apparently item B&H # ZENBG300 would be the only compatible item for your camera. It is out of stock now, however, we should get it by tomorrow, so once we will receive the return, it could be processed for an exchange.
Please let us know if you're interested in that exchange. "
So I called them this morning and got an RMA for the MB-D10 and I am keeping the Vello. If I have to use AA's, then I may as well do it with the $70 Vello vs. the used $180 MB-D10!
My eneloops will get a a workout.
