Ver nice grip! I expected that since it is from Nikon. Unfortunately You spend some $$$$$$ since it is Nikon. Nikon should have designed it like the previous grips. I don't like how the door slides to the side to open up. All provisos grips were deigned better. A must have for your camera !!

one of accessories much needed

Mixed feelings

By Avery

This grip does allow you to use the vertical controls and have two batteries attached to the camera at the same time. However, in less than a year, the rubber on all parts of the grip is coming off, and it makes my Z6ii very laggy. It takes almost 2-3 seconds to boot up from off, and it makes some of the user interface very slow to respond. It is also incredibly expensive for what it is. Not sure why. It does make the camera feel a little more substantial though, so that is a plus. If I could do 2.5 stars I would.

Who designed this thing?!?!

It's great that you can have an extra battery charging but I'm concerned about the durability on this device. What bothers me most is the horrible design on the battery door/cover. If you are not super careful, it will come off and then it's a pain in the you-know-what to get it back on. This item is also too expensive in my opinion.

Not inexpensive, but the best

This is the best way to make your Z6II or Z7II more capable and close to a pro level format. Since it is a Nikon product designed for these cameras, it works flawlessly and provide additional capabilities that others may not due to compatibility issues. It isn't inexpensive, compared to the 3rd party options, but well worth the price.

Essential Addition

Gives the camera a better grip and balance. And of course uninterrupted shooting with being able to hotswap batteries.

Improves horizontal handling, not just vertical

By Robert

The MB-N11 creates a win-win situation for me. When I make horizontal shots, I find the edge of the 'N11 rests on the heel of my left hand as I hold a lens, adding more stability than I feel when I shoot without the grip. The same effect occurs when I shoot vertically with the grip because I am not trying to curl my right hand around the shutter release side of the camera when I shoot overhanded or bend my right wrist when I shoot underhanded as I would without a grip. I attribute these improvements to the deep-well recess of the vertical grip. Replacing both batteries with the 'N11 is easier than swapping cells in the D800 body/grip configuration, but not as convenient as with the D200 grip. Although the 'N11 with two batteries adds more bulk and weight, overall the camera and grip are lighter than previous systems I have used. The lighter build and improved ergonomics put the MB-N11 in first place among the three grips I have used.

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.
