About Flashpoint D7000

The Flashpoint Professional Power Battery Grip for the Nikon D7000 is an optional but essential accessory with excellent ergonomics designed specificallyfor the Nikon D7000.

Featuring intelligent links to camera functions, matching the design and feel ofyour camera while doubling the battery power with a twin cell chamber that can load a choice of one, or two battery packs. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode - operating modes that use more power compared to using a single EN-EL15 pack. In addition, with the included battery magazine, you can also run the camera off six AA batteries.

The non-slip rubberized grip offers perfect balance in any direction with full vertical shooting controls, which can be independently turned on or off as the photographer needs to enhance camera handling, especially for shooting vertical pictures - not videos, please. The grip has generous operating controls as well:shutter button, Main Dial, multi-controller, AF point selection button, AE lock/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button. The base of the grip has a standard 1/4-20 tripod socket and a hand strap mount.Your camera's original battery door fits snugly in a protective hidden slot for instant retrieval.

Great for the price

You can't beat the price. My first unit came in DOA, but Adorama as always replaced it right away. It would be great to get a good one the first time and not have to pay to return ship, but then again I guess that's just a risk we take with anything. My unit fits perfectly on my D7000, no slop, no looseness at all. The controls are considerably "cheaper" feeling than any Nikon control I've ever used.

You can't beat the price. My first unit came in DOA, but Adorama as always replaced it right away. It would be great to get a good one the first time and not have to pay to return ship, but then again I guess that's just a risk we take with anything. My unit fits perfectly on my D7000, no slop, no looseness at all. The controls are considerably "cheaper" feeling than any Nikon control I've ever used. The command dials turn with very little resistance and I like having those dials a bit tighter. The release button works just fine and has a decent tactile feel to it. Ultimately though, I use the MB-D11 to get a better grip on the camera so the controls are far less important to me, the only time I use the vertical release is if the camera is on a monopod. I use the main body release all other times, I guess I just prefer that position, and I prefer the body position of the AE/AF lock button, which I use all the time. The battery fit in perfectly and the camera had no issues recognizing the MB-D11 and is using the batteries in the correct order. I cannot comment on durability, and I am going to guess that it's not a unit that will work for 20 years, but again in this age of cameras being utterly obsolete within five years, that kind of durability is a lot less important. With that in mind, spending well over 200 bucks on the Nikon unit seems utterly stupid if you have the Flashpoint version available.

good product but with major flaws

If the two I had received worked correctly I would have given 5 stars. Looks just like the nikon brand but is lighter. Controls work in the correct order but have a slightly cheaper feel. The command wheels are rubberized like the nikons' and add a nice touch. The bad.... The first one I received had a gritty thumb screw that wasn't able to tighten securely to the camera , but worked fine otherwise. Returned it for a replacement. Second one fit fine but drained the battery over a few nights.....

The first one I received had a gritty thumb screw that wasn't able to tighten securely to the camera , but worked fine otherwise. Returned it for a replacement. Second one fit fine but drained the battery over a few nights... tried with grip removed from camera but grip battery still discharged. Then tried attached to camera but with grip battery removed but then just drained battery in camera . Leaving camera on or off, or grip locked or unlocked made no difference.Only solution was to remove grip from camera and battery from grip. Decided maybe "cheap" hurts. I do not know why the heading shows Canon 5d.... this is a review for Nikon d7000 grip.

Good for the pricing

By

from Athens, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

The Flashpoint Grip fits well and functions like the MB-D11. It is not built as solid so the feel is not like you have a permenant grip built to the canera body. There is not a AA battery tray included and the tray I received only holds one EL-15 battery, for a total of two, one in the body, one in the grip. It has functioned well when I need it.

Good enough for the price

By

from Batavia, NY  -  Pro Photographer

This was the second type of cheap-o battery grip I bought for my Nikon D7000. The first one died after about three sessions. I'm about to purchase my third copy of this grip (I run two D7000). The first Flashpoint grip I bought more than a year ago has died, so I'm replacing it. It worked like a charm for at least 200,000 frames of shooting, though, with lots of banging around and some fairly adverse conditions. For the price, it just can't be beat.

Does everything I wanted it to do.

By

from Mount Airy, MD  -  Semi-Professional

I mostly shoot vertically. This grip has all the features I want in at a fraction of the cost of Nikon's OEM.

Died after 7 Months

By

from Clinton, MI  -  Semi-Professional

Worked great for 7 months - the grip has a good feel to it. I was extra-careful with the battery compartment opener as it feels too flimsy. After 7 months, both the dials and the shutter release stopped all at once. Reseated it, cleaned contacts with a soft toothbrush, tried different batteries, no luck. Returned for exchange.

Waiting for replacement

By

from Dallas TX  -  Professional

I am waiting on the replacement (I had one and after a 2 months it stopped working with the camera. I have had the camera a couple of months and I have been testing it first before putting it into full time service. The grip work for a little while, I have purchased other grips from Ado and they have worked fine.

Poor manufacturing.

By

from Marana, AZ  -  Semi-Professional

I was really hoping this would be a great product. I wanted to be a Flashpoint fan boy. But it wasn't, the ruber grip portion wasn't stuck flush, there was a large air bubble. The buttons and dials felt very cheap, and the shutter triger required some muscle to use.

Great Deal

By

from Denver CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I was skeptical after reading some negative reviews, but I bought and have loved it so far. It attacheds snugly to the camera with no gaps. It has the built in rubber piece storage which is also an added bonus. The buttons/wheel are good, not great. They all suffice and are stiff which I like, but not as good as the on camera buttons. My biggest complaint is the two battery options each require a separate piece. I don't like having to carry the extra in case I ever need it.

Saved cash

By

from Puerto Rico  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I saved enough cash to buy another lens. This battery grip is good enough for me and works just fine. I tested it out with the a single battery in the camera, with a single battery in the grip and with the battery in the camera and 6 AA batteries in the grip and the Flashpoint Vertical Grip Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Camera MB-D11 by Flashpoint worked everytime.

Good but not great. QC could be better

By

from PA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Bought this brand to save some bucks because of the high price of Nikon. The first one had an issue of discharging AA batteries and at times, was not recognized by my Nikon D7000. Adorama replaced it with a new one in a very prompt fashion with no hassles. It is working fine so far.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Hello, Will this work with the new Nikon D7100? Thanks!
mac p  I don't know because I don't own a 7100 yet, but its a great question because if I want to up grade to the 7100 I need to know if I have to buy another grip or not. Thanks
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
BILL R  fits like a champ..no play in contact w/ camera..
Buzz L  Do you have to remove the battery compartment door on the D7000 to add the grip? Will the grip work with the Camera battery only?
CLARK A  yes you usually have to remove the doors on your camera to facilitate use of grip. NO, all of these extended battery grips will take AA batteries. I recommend Sanyo eneloop. You won't find a battery thats better or that will last as long. I have eneloop's that are 7yrs old that give more than 70 percent capacity. There are other brands of grips such as gekos (I may have spelling wrong) for half the cost. I have used both Nikon and gekos. The Gekos does not extend deep into the camera. It has a short base extension over the battery door.
