Recommended – External Battery Grip for Nikon D300/D300S/D700 DSLR Reviews

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).
Other:
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.
