Nikon MS-12 reviews

MS-12 AA Battery Holder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Designed to Fail I don't know if there's a third-party version of this piece of replacement hardware out there, but someone should have designed a less flimsy version a long time ago. Nikon failed to see how much tension AA batteries create against the thin plastic retainers of the MS-12. Over time, it's enough to create fatigue and subsequent failure. At $ a pop, it's not a cheap thing to replace on a relatively constant basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely find! I cannot believe that I could find this online. Living in Hong Kong for the past couple of decades, you only see the latest accessories or products in store or get seriously over charged for a second and item. I only wish I could have found one for my F4 as well. Anyway, as this is a flimsy element of the camera, I was not taking any chances, I bought two!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Necessary evil This is a must have item for the F100,since there is no alternative if you wish to operate the F100 in its most compact mode. I have purchased several spares,hoping they will be available for awhile. I have had a couple break. Because this item is fragile I sometimes find it difficult to lock into place, perhaps because I tend to babyit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon MS-12 AA Battery Holder My recently purchased product works perfectly. This purchase is my first with B&H Photo, but it will certainly not be my last. Even though I bought this on-line, it is good to know that I have a company here that will back up their product. Sincerely, Frank

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says! After getting the urge to shoot a few rolls of film, I was thankfully able to replace the battery chamber in my F100, misplaced when the vertical grip was attached some years back. So glad they are still making them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to Second one of these. A bit flimsy in construction compared to the rest of the F100. Wish it was made out of metal. Hope I don't break it again with a 2 foot drop from a camera bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works exactly as advertised This is a replacement battery holder for the F100. Chances are you need this piece because (like me) you bought the MB-15 grip and subsequently lost the MS-12. So...if I had a gripe it would be that Nikon couldn't figure out a way to make the MS-12 unnecessary, kind of like the MB-20 and MB-21 for the F4. But functionally, there are no complaints - it works exactly as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eh This is the biggest con of the F100. This battery holder just doesn't seem solid to me. I haven't broken one, so time will tell. It may be fine. Otherwise, I wonder if the vertical grip has a beefier battery setup...although I prefer to avoid the bulk. I would recommend grabbing a spare if you have an F100. Also good to have another battery pack loaded and ready to go.
