    Nikon MB-E5000 reviews

    MB-E5000 Vertical Grip/Battery Holder is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No proprietary battery needed I still own and operate the Nikon Coolpix 5000. As of this writing the battery no longer holds a charge. I looked around the internet for a replacement and found the MB-E5000 Vertical Grip battery holder. Instead of the Nikon proprietary battery, the unit uses six AA batteries. I still enjoy using the Coolpix 5000 and heads turn when I pull the camera from my bag. The MB-E5000 was ridiculously priced at $I really wouldn't categorize the addition of the battery holder as being too heavy but at first it feels a little awkward as it adds a little girth to the size of the camera.If anyone out there still cherishes their Coolpix 5000 and can't find a battery replacement then this MB-E5000 is a perfect fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coolpix 5000 Battery Grip I purchased this grip primarily due to ... the ability to use AA batteries in my old Coolpix 5000. The vertical release is nice as well. I have not used the camera much since I purchased a Canon 10G and am considering converting it to an IR only camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This brought back to life my Coolpix 5000. The camera had been put away years ago when the orginal battery would only last about 10 min. per charge. With this, I'm still on my first set of AA's after a couple of weeks. Also, the camera is easier to hold especially for my big hands.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works. It's only $, which is good because it is all plastic and doesn't seem especially sturdy. But if you're buying this you really don't have any other choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for an aging camera This product is amazing given the battery consumption of this older camera. Makes it more substantial in the hand too.
