"REsponse: D800- "ERR" message- ERR message-Dump the aftermarket battery pack"

I'm with you...I could not believe a 3rd party grip could do the things that it apparently did. I mean the Chinese dissected the MB-12 and copied it...didn't they?

Nikon had me send them my D800, battery, lens, SD card, etc. Every thing but the grip. I even had the SD card where the viewfinder showed 1/2 frame. Don't know about video.
Nikon put 2,000 cycles on the shutter and could not duplicate the problem. The 1/2 frames were not on the card and the camera a was not exhibiting "ERR" when it got to LA. They returned it to me with a "we find this camera meets spec and there is nothing wrong with it."

Next couple of days, in a shoot, I saw the dreaded 1/2 frame in the viewfinder and then found my last few frames were not recorded on the card. I also found the battery in the aftermarket MB-12 was near 0%. The camera battery as a 59%.
What was your battery level?
Bottom line....I'm still running the aftermarket pack, but as soon as I get my next commission check, it's going on Ebay cheap and I am ordering the MB-12. It just KILLS me to shell out even more but I guess it to be worth it.
Please keep us informed as to what you find.
BTW...


As always, please have a Great Day!
