    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    * Works instantly - simply attach an EN-EL3e (or another compatible battery) and start taking vertical shots more easily.

    * 8 Frames per second on the D300s with 8-AA sized batteries !

    Cons:

    * The feel is not entirely professional - feels somewhere between 'toy' plastic and the camera's plastic.

    * This does not have anything to do with this specific grip - but if you bounce an external flash (such as the SB-800) from the ceiling then only one direction can be used (when the grip's trigger is in the upwards position).

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    If you would like to try out a grip and not sure if you need one - this is your grip.

    If you plainly looking for a grip and not willing to pay for the original brand - this one's for you.
