Overly Priced and BAD


from Boston, MA  -  Pro Photographer

It's light, does not easily attach, and screw is loose or likely to get so making it very, very difficult to detach from camera. I bought mine brand new from Adorama and have only used it twice--Oh, God, what a waste of money!--

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is this model weather sealed?
LOUIS G  No, it is not weather sealed, but it fits the camera body very well.
Shopper  will this work on d800e ?
JOHN F  The Phottix will work on both the D800 and D800E. I was very impressed with the quality.
Chuck G  Is there a problem with screwing the camera down....so doesn't seem to get tight, or camera gets loose as you use it?
BRIAN C  I've used this unit to shoot a wedding. The grip was attached to my Black Rapid Strap and I experienced no issues with "screwing the camera down" to the battery grip. If you're familar with the black rapid strap system, a metal loop is screwed to the tripod mount of the camera or in this case the bottom of the battery grip. This means that the camera was hanging upside down for long periods of time without and connection issues.
