Spend Money to Save Money

I often shoot large volumes of shots, as many as 5000 in a day with a combination of both my Z7ii and my D850. I thought about trading my D850 for a Z9 or another Z7ii to permit me to increase the volume with the mirrorless camera primarily because its relatively quiet compared to the D850 in burst mode. I do love the D850, so I decided that a good compromise was to increase the battery capacity of the Z7ii just to make things easier for myself when shooting the Z7ii for an extended shoot when changing batteries might make me miss an important shot. So far, I'm impressed with the neat engineering that Nikon did on the Nikon MB-Nii Battery Pack. It doesn't increase the Z7ii burst, but I no longer have battery duration anxiety.

Great addition for sports

I originally bought the Z 7 to 4 Street in travelphotography, but started using it for sports and have really liked the results. The vertical grip has really helped now that I have the 100-400 lens. Love the fact that it can hold and charge two batteries.

Makes a huge difference

I really love the double grips because my hands shake a lot and it helps me get more steady vertical photos. Compared to some of the grips I've used on my Nikon DSLRs, this feels more solid and has less wiggle between the body and the grip. I also do like that you can swap out both batteries without removing the grip from the body. On many Nikon DSLR bodies, you have to remove the grip to get to the battery in the body. The battery cover on this grip feels solid and slides open and closed easily but securely. I also love that there is an additional Fn button on the top of the grip. I set it to change ISO like the similar button on the body. I absolutely love this grip, and I feel like it's very much worth the price For pointers, do follow the instructions for removing the battery door from the body. If you do it will come off with some resistance, but without any trouble. The wheel you turn to attach it is only accessible from the back of the body unlike some other grips where it is accessible both in front and on the back. Overall, it feels very well designed and I enjoy using my Z body so much more with this attached. I get more keepers this way

The Nikon MB-N11 Battery Pack is well built. I first purchased another brand battery pack. The quality was poor. Very satisfied with the Nikon pack.

Better handling, more battery life

By Gil

Obviously adds bulk but if your used to larger slr's this feels more familiar and gives more peace of mind that your batteries won't run out as quickly.

Too expensive

There is not a single battery in it! I probably won't buy it if I knew it. Maybe they know too: that's why they don't want to tell you anywhere in the description. I know we all want to help Nikon survive, but $400 for an empty enclosure is just too much by any standard. So this may push me to the other brand.

Much easier camera handling

This grip makes the camera much easier to handle, especially shooting in the vertical position. It's also nice that it holds 2 batteries, and I don't have to change batteries as often.

Works well, seems well built. I use with Nikon Z6II and it has extended time between battery changes.

Is battery changing the same as on the previous Z grip, or does it use a "slide out" holder as with the D850 grip? Will it accept the larger EN-EL18 or only two small batteries?
Asked by: Yasha
The grip has a removable tray that fits two EL15 batteries and loads in from the end, and locks into place. The end cap is hinged like the MBN-10 and closes the tray and batteries in. The left-side battery, like the MBN-10, drains first, and can be swapped without removing the tray (there is a latch to hold the tray into the grip, and a latch on the tray itself to retain that battery).

How do you know which battery to swap?
Asked by: David
You can only hot-swap the A battery while the camera is still on. There's a separate lever to remove only the A battery instead of both batteries at the same time.
