Great replacement for NIKON original – BP-D11 External Battery Grip for Nikon D7000 Reviews

Pros:
This battery grip has a very good build quality. Thanks to the different build materials it looks like the original. The grip works as expected with focusing on button half-pressed. The shutter button also has a lock to avoid shooting by mistake. Two Wheels for settings, and a small joystick with the same functions as on the camera. Assignable AE-L button.
Cons:
The build quality is very good, but not excellent. Some very small loose object can be Heard falling around inside the grip. The Controls (button, Wheels, joystick) does not feel as accurate as on the camera.
Other:
The grip ships with two battery holders, one for a EN-EL15 battery and one for six AA batteries. It is compatible with the EN-EL15a battery (SKU: 66095) also sold at dx.com.
Bottomline:
Great replacement for the NIKON original grip at a much lower price.
