Vello BG-N19 Overview

Shoot for longer and improve the ergonomics of your Nikon D850 DSLR with the BG-N19 Battery Grip from Vello. This accessory can hold an additional EN-EL15a battery to effectively double your shooting time, and offers a shutter-release button for easy vertical shooting as well as two command dials, AF-ON button, and Function button.

It can even accept eight AA batteries when deployed with an alternate battery plate; just make sure to select the correct AA battery type in the D850's setup menu.

To install the grip, remove the contact protectors from both the grip and the camera and align the mounting screw with the D850's tripod socket. An attachment wheel helps ensure a secure fit, while the contact cover from the camera can be kept in a dedicated holder on the grip to prevent its loss. For use with a tripod or monopod, the BG-N19 offers a 1/4"-20 threaded slot at the bottom for easy mounting. Finally, a control lock switch next to the shutter-release locks all buttons on the grip to prevent accidental triggering.

Note:
Not compatible with earlier EN-EL18 or EN-EL18a version

Vello BG-N19 Reviews

Functional and Affordable

This grip provides all of the functionality of the Nikon grip. True, it has a very plastic sound when tapping on it, but it is as strong and rigid as the Nikon ones I have. The controls have a very similar feel to Nikon's. All in all, it does the same job for way less money.

Won't make this mistake again

Yeah, I know the Nikon stuff is a lot more expensive, but...poor man pays twice. I don't over tighten this at all, but after using it on my D850 for an hour, I can't get it back off unless I use a screwdriver as leverage on the wheel. Yet, I can see daylight through it. I know it's not designed to be weatherproof, but that's beyond risky. Ordering the Nikon grip which I know I'll never need to think twice about this year or 10 years from now.

Everything I expected.

I purchased this grip and when I received it I was pleasantly surprised. The grip feels and looks well made plus you receive the battery holder for the AAs and for the Nikon battery. It mounts easy and fits really nice. I suggest you get one you won't regret it.

Actually a good buty,

Compared to a authentic grip this is 95% of it. The 5% is a litle bit different consistency of the surface when touching, the subselector feels different a litle bit less solid and a 1% of the difference is in perception of the quality of the plastic. After two days I did not notice any of this an I am a happy camper. The functions as far as I see all there and the the same. Un less you are a Nikon snob, this is a good buy.

A steal for the price!

I have only used it once and I have not used sequential shots but that is not an issue for my anyway. Works as advertised so far and the quality seems to be very good. All my controls work, no complaints. Oh, one minor one. The font size on the instruction sheet could be just a tad larger.

Works fine.

I had an original Nikon expensive grip on my D810, this Vello works just as good as far as I can tell. Nice and tight, no wobble, buttons all work and the price is right!

Hard to beat for the $$$
