Vello BG-N12-D3400 overview

  • 1Description

The BG-N12 Battery Grip from Vello is designed specifically for the Nikon D3400 DSLR camera and accepts one or two EN-EL14 or EN-AL14A batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. More so, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery.

The BG-N12 features an anti-slip rubber grip, a tripod socket to mount your camera directly to a tripod, and includes a holder for the camera's battery door so as not to lose it when the battery grip is installed.

Note: Please note that although the grip does come with a vertical shutter release button, since the D3400 does not provide a socket for the necessary release cord the vertical shutter button will not function.

Holds up to two EN-EL14 or EN-EL14A batteries, doubling the battery life for the Nikon D3400.
Features anti-slip rubber gripping and a securely locking battery chamber door.
Contains a camera battery door holder to store the camera's battery chamber door when the grip is mounted.

    Vello BG-N12-D3400 reviews

    BG-N12 Battery Grip for Nikon D3100, D3200, & D3300 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for D3200 I use the battery grip for my Nikon D3200. It feels and looks good on the camera. The D3200 is already light (weight) so the battery grip adds a little more weight to keep the camera balanced in your hands. The only thing I don't like, and maybe it's just my battery grip, but sometimes it's hard to eject the batteries from the grip. I usually have to tip the entire camera system to the side so the batteries can slip out. Other than that, I suggest getting this battery grip because it'll make your life easier if you're constantly on the go shooting. It saves time and gives you more juice for your camera!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reason for battery error. I bout this grip and an extra Nikon battery (not the knock off) when I got my D3300 and the camera kept saying that the battery was not compatible with my camera. The battery was an actual Nikon product but the grip is not. I had to take it off and carry it in a bag everywhere I went for the rest of the day. The other annoying part was the little cable that had to be attached to give you the alternate shutter release. I like having the extended battery life but perhaps I just got a bad one. I did return it and the B&H team were very helpful.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not yet sold The first few days I received the Battery Grip by Vello, I was extremely happy with it. It held two batteries, increased my shooting time and allowed for portrait shots to use the side button. Shortly after those first few days, I went to turn my camera on and it gave an error that the battery was not for this camera. I took it off and was shooting with the individual batteries. Put it back on and ever since it intermittently has been working.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality - didn't do the job After the first time I put the batteries in and removed them for charging the back door would not close tight enough for the batteries to make contact. If I held my figure tightly to push it shut it worked but I ended up taking it off and using my original one battery chamber in the camera because I was missing photo opportunities on my vacation because of the battery grip was not working consistently although the batteries were freshly charged and ready to go.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! Flimsy and doesn't hold batteries Very thin, cheap plastic. Had to stick some foam inside the battery door to get the batteries to make contact at all. Batteries won't latch in place because springs on clips are so weak, and will fall out if you bump the grip as the door will fall open. Catalog (not website) says it also takes AA batteries, which it does NOT. Camera at times complains about 'non-Nikon' battery in grip, other times doesn't, can't rely on this thing to work. Wouldn't trust walking around with this on camera, bad enough in studio to keep dropping parts on the ground. Waste of money. Will avoid all Vello products from now on!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Use for tripod Everything about it has worked so far; but I wanted something that could be attached to my tripod. I tried but the inside mount in the grip sucks because I tried to tighten my tripod plate to it but it only stuck the two together. Now, the inside mount came loose so it just spins around, connected to my tripod plate. (Basically I cannot take my tripod head off the grip, nor have it stabled enough for long exposures)
    Date published: 2015-07-23
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works... It does what it says - hold two batteries so you get longer battery life. The vertical shutter release works but requires a cable run from grip to side of camera, which makes camera vulnerable to rain, etc. - no thanks! This is IMHO okay for studio use, but not field use. Seems too big yet too flimsy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great addition! I purchased two, one for my son's Nikon D3100 and one for my Nikon D3300. It feels great in my hands and looks good on the camera. It did not make my camera feel heavy or clunky. My son and I take mostly nature shots so having the extra battery life is great. I feel the BG-N12 battery grip by Vello is a great addition to my camera and would recommend getting one for yours.
