Quality, just like the Nikon grip.

Since I have the Nikon MB-D10, I decided to just go with the Nikon cover. Not sure if it matters all that much, but the 3rd party covers seemed to be not too much cheaper, so I figured to just go with the genuine article. It was made for the MB-D10 ... what else can you say about it? Perhaps a little pricey for what it is, but so is the grip!

[...] but necessary

Very pricey for a piece of plastic, but it's necessary to purchase this piece to use EN-EL4a for MB-D10 grip. Nikon should have included this with the grip purchase.

Saves space, it works

By

from New Mexico  -  Photo Enthusiast

Now I can use one type battery in both D3 and D300 plus I need only one charger to cover both cameras. Bought used from Adorama. Condition was fairly described and priced well. Delivered in about 3 days at the cheapest shipping rate. No complaints here.

Does the job

By

from Sydney, Australia  -  Photo Enthusiast

A little pricey, but necessary to use the EN-EL4 battery in the MBD-10 grip. Has some little spring clips to grab the EN-EL4 and hold it in place. O-ring on the closure makes the battery compartment water resistant/proof; that's a good thing. Not sure why it couldn't be included with the grip, seeing as they supplied a sled to use with the EN-EL3 or 8xAA batteries. :(

perfect fit

By

from Philadelphia, PA  -  Pro Photographer

This fantastic accessory allows the D700/D300 user to augment their MB-D10 into a machine-gun sounding powerhouse. Coupled with the EN-EL4/a battery, this cover will boost you to another level of speed. The jump from 5fps to 8fps is bigger than you might expect. I put it to the test tonight while shooting handheld macro-ish shots in low light. It's not catalog work so I didn't need a flash and not true macro with gobs of DOF. But it was up close work and the added burst speed allows for more keepers.

Works as advertised

Works as advertised. Mandatory for the D700 to get the full functionality out of it.

A Must For The D700

By

from Carolina,Puerto Rico  -  Semi-Professional

A must item to use with the D700. Now I can have one type of battery to use with my D3/D700 (EN/EL4-EN-EL4a). I like the soft carrying case to store the BL-3/EN-EL4a as one unit.The BL-3 is little expensive,but worth every dollar.Highly recommend it.

Absolutely a must have

By

from Gore, Virginia.  -  Professional

When I bought my new D700 I thought I might be giving up battery life that I had grown accustomed to with my D2x(s). When I bought my D700 I purchased the MBD-10 battery pack to give me the same feel as my D2x(s). After making that purchase I realized that I could purchase this cover so I could use my (extra's) EN-EL4a batteries that I had saved when I traded in my (2) D2x's on my D700 here at Adorama. What a great purchase. Now I have the flexibility to use the bigger and longer life batteries as well as take off the battery pack for hiking and use the smaller en-el3. This cover is made of sturdy plastic which doesn't feel cheap. It holds the battery extremely well and locks easily into place. I have been using it for almost 6 months now and have ZERO problems with it.
