About a 2 months ago I purchased my d7k, and to date, I am very happy with the purchase. I more recently purchased the battery pack for reasons including shutter speed increase. I have not read anything on this site or any other that suggested that shutter speed actually does increase with the addition of the battery pack. Does anyone know if there is an increase and how much? The current specs are 6fps. It would be nice if it got to 8fps.
My suspicion is that there is not any increase because it was not stated anywhere is the description of the battery pack online. Please tell me I am wrong.
And by the way this is my first post, I tried to do a search, but I didnt find anything. If this question has been answered please feel free (moderator) to provide the link and move my topic.
Correct. No FPS increase should be expected with the MB-D11. That said, the grip is nice and really increases the overall experience of the camera, in my opinion. I always have it on when using a larger lens (e.g. 70-200 f/2.8), and I like the feature that allows you to tell the camera to use the grip's battery first before using the camera's.
The best feature of the grip is that it comes with a AA battery adapter, so that in a pinch you can keep shooting on standard batteries.
