Vello BG-N19-2 overview

  • 1Description

Shoot for longer and improve the ergonomics of your Nikon D850 DSLR with the BG-N19-2 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. The grip can also be used with an EN-EL18b battery when paired with the BL-5 cover (for up to 9 fps), or power the camera directly via AC with an EP-5B power supply connector and EH-5c adapter combination. 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-N19-2 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-N19-2 reviews

    BG-N19-2 Battery Grip for Nikon D850 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last stop before OEM city. I tried two other aftermarket grips, each with their own problems. One flexed on the camera body, causing intermittent contact and loss of 9fps. The other was cheaply made, again flexed on the body and the BL-5 battery door wiggled causing intermittent battery contact. Fed up, I was ready to drop $396 for the Nikon grip when this grip was released. Winner winner chicken dinner. Mounts solid to the body without excessive tightening, no body flex or battery door issues what so ever. Controls are all very solid and grip has a nice soft tacky feel. First one I received had some contact issues. But I was so impressed with the construction that I ordered a second which was and is flawless. Very highly recommended alternative to $396.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for Money Normally I would buy the Nikon version, however due to the inflated price that Nikon charges I decided to try a Vello branded one. It fits the contours of the camera body securely, with no gaps between the camera and grip. The controls all have good tactile response, except for the two control wheels which have a slightly less resistance feel to them compared to the Nikon. The Nikon grip has a metal bar to reinforce the tripod bush, with the Vello this is I believe, plastic...though probably not a major issue. A off brand L-bracket fitted OK. The exterior rubber finish matches that of the camera. Overall, for the price this item works as advertised...highly recommended

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Works great and feels as good as if not better than the Nikon OEM grip. No wiggle like the previous Vello D850 grip, and coupled with a couple Wasbi EN-EL18's getting a solid 9FP with no reversion back to 7 as of yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good one Having used the earlier BG-19 the small differences are an improvement. Quality and build are very good; I would guess to be almost as good as a Nikon original. The only exception to this would be the degree of weatherproofing, which is not up to Nikon levels - but then again, at a quarter of the price, easy enough to live with. New controls and positioning, only make a good thing better. Interestingly, the older battery holders do not fit the new model - other than the genuine Nikon BD5 for the EL18 batteries - which fits perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended! Works perfectly with Wasabi Power Battery for Nikon EN-EL18 (BTR-ENEL18-JWP), Wasabi Power Dual Battery Charger for Nikon and DSTE Replacement BL-5 Battery Chamber Cover For Nikon. D850 reaches 9 fps. Important information: total price below 200$.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Attaches solidly to the camera and, combined with the Nikon BL-5 battery holder (good tight fit) and a EN-EL18 battery, consistently gives 9fps on the D850. Very happy with the quality of this grip, considering the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as advertised No problem with the grip. There are some posts that question how strong it will be with a long lens on a tripod, but if I'm using a tripod the grip is out of the picture, long lenses have collars that eliminate the grip.
