      I bought this along with my MB-D10 Nikon battery grip. What can I say. It's light, strong, and fits like a glove to the grip. I use it on my CF tripod with a Acratech Ultimate ballead. I have a RRS Bh-40 ballhead (trying to sell) because I prefer the Acratech Ultimate. As soon as possible I'm going to order the Acratech GV-2 ballhead. I'll already have the plate and I'll be ready to go. You need this plate so why pay more money? With many years experience, I would suggest matching camera plates and ballheads with the same manufacture even if one says it will fit the other. Better safe than sorry.

      I bought this plate for my gripped 5D2. Since this plate was supposed to be made specifically for this camera and grip combination, I expected it to fit perfectly. However, the plate does not sit flush with the contour of the grip, causing too much wobble.
      There are two things wrong, in my opinion. First, the radius of the curled lip on the plate is too large and does not match the radius of the grip. Second, there is a small lip machined into the plate. Nowhere on the camera grip is there anything that matches this lip, so the plate does not sit flush with the camera grip.
      I spent about an hour trying to sand and file the plate, and was able to make it a little better.
      Call me picky, but I expected better than this.

                Works perfectly with my Canon 5d. I always have the Vello battery pack on and this works just fine. After 2 weeks of daily use, I only had to tighten the screw once. Wish it had a D ring, that's my only complaint. Using an Arca Swiss ball head, this thing is rock solid.

                  This quick release plate works great and is very stable holding the camera body in place without worry of "camera creep". Also appreciate the use with several other cameras that are shared during photo shoots with classes. This quick release works fine the the Acratech Ballhead and is very stable.

                                    AS far as the plate itself is concerned, it is solid, well designed and substantial. It fits perfectly and prevents any sort of slippage in relation to the grip.
                                    There is one caveat that needs to be mentioned if you intend to purchase this for your D200 with the MB-D200 for fine photography. While there is solid attachment to the grip base, the weak link in the system now becomes the relationship between the grip and the camera. On my set-up there is slight movement between the two. As I rock the camera while mounted on the tripod, there is still movement visible through the viewfinder. I purchased this plate in an attempt to eliminate movement and vibration while locked down and although this plate is significantly more solid than the plate I was using before, all movement is not eliminated. If you intend to do some seriously long exposures or tight macros you will probably be better off taking off the grip and mounting the camera directly to the tripod with the appropriate plate for the camera body.
                                    Acratech builds quality products and this plate is no exception. Buy it with confidence but understand that the addition of a grip to a D200 makes the whole platform less solid. This may not be true for the D300 or D700 as their grips are different and may be more solid.

                                    Much better than the original plate!

                                      Keeps the camera very secure. No slipping/rotation.

                                          I purchased this particular release plate because it will fit both of my cameras and for the price point. It fits exactly as described with no camera twist. I am buying a second one so that I can leave it attached to the cameras. The only "con" I have is I would prefer a "D" ring on the attachment screw instead of having to us an Allen Wrench.

                                          Purchased to use with MB-D10 battery/base for my D300. Works great. Good construction.
