The Shutter Release Cable for BG-N12, BG-N9, BG-N6 & BG-N5 Battery Grips from Vello is a replacement or spare shutter release cable that connects the Vello BG-N13 Battery Grip to the Nikon D5300, the Vello BG-N12 Battery Grip to the Nikon D3100, D3200 and D3300, the BG-N9 Battery Grip to the Nikon D3100 and D3200, the BG-N6 Battery Grip to the Nikon D5100 and D5200, and the BG-N5 Battery Grip to the Nikon D3100. The battery grips hold up to two EN-EL14 batteries to supply the camera with extra power and also provide a vertical position shutter button. The shutter release cable connects from the socket on the battery grip to the remote release port on the camera body and transmits the shutter release signal from battery grip to the camera.

Having a spare cable in your camera bag is a good idea in case the original, which comes with the grip, is lost while on vacation or assignment.

            A few years ago I purchased an aftermarket battery grip for my Nikon D5000 (Nikon doesn't make one). Somewhere along the way I lost this cable. I picked up this replacement cable and it works perfectly. I can now use the shutter release button on the battery grip again.

                Great replacement cable. Definitely a nice addition to the battery grip for my Nikon D3100. Previously had a longer cable that I needed to loop for a better fit, but this one is sized up nicely and does not have too much slack.

                Get one if you have not already... and if you do not have one yet, think of this as the emergency cable in case you ever lose one. For the price you cannot beat this.

                  The Vello BG-N6 is a great addition to the Nikon D5100 and the cable is a necessary part when shooting in portrait orientation. This replacement cable replaces the original that was damaged when left on the camera while in the bag...my fault, not the manufacturer's.
