Balance and ease

Have been using this grip for sometime and love the fact that I do not have to search for the controls. Love the extra speed and long battery life. Helps balance my 70-200vr

Battery Clips Break VERY easily!

It's hard to say how this should be rated. It's a great addition to the camera, it works well, feels great, looks great, very functional, and an essential part of the camera. The camera looks, feels and acts like a full professional camera with this device. However...The battery clips break VERY easily! They are thin and fragile pieces of plastic. The grip costs [$], the clips cost 5 cents, but if the clip breaks, it will cost as much as you paid for the grip to get the clip replaced - NO EXA...

It's hard to say how this should be rated. It's a great addition to the camera, it works well, feels great, looks great, very functional, and an essential part of the camera. The camera looks, feels and acts like a full professional camera with this device. However...The battery clips break VERY easily! They are thin and fragile pieces of plastic. The grip costs [$], the clips cost 5 cents, but if the clip breaks, it will cost as much as you paid for the grip to get the clip replaced - NO EXAGGERATION! Look at the other reviews on the internet for others who have had the very same problem. There are no instructions anywhere about how to disassemble the device. You're on your own. I ordered replacement clips from Nikon to try and replace the clip myself, and it's impossible! I completely ruined the grip and it is worthless now. However I'm no worse off than if I had sent in the grip for a repair. I might as well buy a new grip[...]. This is a very sad situation. A 5 cent clip makes a [$]device worthless. But what option do you have? You must have the grip. So, make sure you start saving for a new grip as soon as you buy this accessory. Mine lasted about 1 year before the clip broke. Other owners had theirs break much sooner. I assume that some others have not had this problem at all. Good luck!

excellent product

By

from Dayton, OH  -  Semi-Professional

The product recieved was exactly as described in the ad. I was very pleased to buy a used product, gentlely previously used without any damage when recieved. The price paid was well below what I would have paid for a new unused product. The product arrived quickly. The whole experience reinforced my postive opinion about Adorama as a company.

D200 Battery Compartment

By

from Undisclosed

The white plastic tabs that hold the batteries in place broke not long after I bought the unit. Now the door latch keeps allowing the door to pop open and the batteries to fall out, making tape necessary to hold the door close. Not very well designed for the rugged use that these cameras receive.

In Theory....Great...Construction??? Mmmm, not so much

By

from Undisclosed

I really enjoyed the balance, controls, and extra battery life that it provides HOWEVER the latching mechanisms holding the batteries in, as well as the mechanism that holds the door closed, are very poorly made and broke. I do recommend the product but only if you understand that you have to be very delicate with it.

Good Construction / Bought it used here.

By

from Grand Junction Co.  -  Semi-Professional

Gor this used from this site. Condition: very good shape. I put it on the camera and it works great. How ever the cover for the battery broke and O'm having trouble finding a new one. This is a great addition to my aging D200. It now has the full body feel and works great. Both Batteries lock in and so does the AA battery tray. It was a good find and the rating system used here on this site is a good judgment of the condition. be sur to read what the ratings mean.

fantastic service as promised

By

from okla. city  -  Semi-Professional

I purchased a used one as they are not making these anymore and getting very hard to get. I have tried the knock off version of this battery drive. They are not nearly as convient or good as this is.

Good vert. grip option but not perfect

By

from Grand Rapids, MI  -  Semi-Professional

Had the MB-D200 for 2 years now and it's been great with a couple surprising problems. The most glaring one is the plastic clips that hold the batteries in when you open the door. They get brittle and break off. Surprised that Nikon wouldn't have something more sturdy in their semi-pro camera grip. The latch to close the door could also be designed better. You can catch it with your palm and open it right up accidentally. A piece of gaffer tape over it fixed that but you shouldn't have to do that if it was designed better. Other than those two problems it's been a valuable piece of gear. The body is sturdy and takes a lot of abuse. Design and materials wise it matches the D200 perfectly. Having a vertical grip not only gives you twice the battery life, but helps stabilize your vertical photos by allowing you to keep your elbows in toward your body when shooting handheld.

Be careful when using the compartment latch.

By

from Santa Clarita, California

The latch on the battery compartment is flimsy and will break off after many openings and closings. "How long before it breaks??" Well, calculating my usage as normal (I use my camera 15 days out of the month), from my experience it will break in about 3 months. I used black tape to keep the compartment closed - It is a very small latch and could be replaced easily - if it was sold separately. I now use an external battery source.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I read on Yahoo! answers that this could be used on the Nikon D3100. Is this true? If so, how well does it work? Thanks.
LISA B  The battery used with the D200 is an older design which is no longer used on current cameras. This makes it unlikely that the grip would be compatible with the D3100 or D3200. You can check the Nikon USA website, which usually contains information on the compatibility for its products.
KEN W  HOW DO U REMOVE BATTERY COVER FROM D200 ?
Helen O  With the bottom of the camera facing up, open the battery chamber cover and angle it at about 60deg from horizontal. Pull the battery chamber door out in the same direction. The door should pop free with relative ease. For more details please consult the instruction sheet that is enclosed with the MD-200.
KEN W  HOW DO REMOVE BATTERY COVER FROM D-200?
VERNETTA T  I did not keep the camera, I only had the camera a few days before I sent it back. Never got the chance to use the battery grip on the camera . Sorry,
