Nikon MB-D12 overview

  • 1Description

Dedicated to the Nikon D810, D810a, D800, and D800E DSLRs, the MB-D12 Multi Power Battery Pack offers both enhanced handling capabilities as well as extended battery life while shooting. It accepts one additional EN-EL15 lithium-ion battery pack to increase the camera's battery life or, alternatively, eight AA batteries can be used in conjunction with the included MS-D12 AA Battery Holder. The design of the grip improves shooting in the vertical orientation and also provides an overall more ergonomic structure for holding the camera. An additional shutter release button, AE/AF lock button, multi selector, and main- and sub-command dials are all incorporated into the grip's design to benefit more natural and intuitive handling.

    Nikon MB-D12 reviews

    MB-D12 Multi Power Battery Pack is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 329.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny Need the grip for a wedding shoot for a friend of mine, shop around for third party and trying to see some cash.. Turns out Neewer md-D12 does the job however I can't afford the chance to having a renneconntion issue. So went with Nikon official grip, and it sure tell the difference! Not only it more reliable but also the grip/shutter button are comfortable to use! Thr battery boost sure is a plus! Just a heads up, if wondering why fps doesn't go 7 with grip is because EN-EL18 or EN-EL18a is needed (or AA battery) Overall, highly recommend for those need reliable and extra juice for a long photoshoot!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't say worth the money, but aftermarket doesn't compare. This Nikon battery grip feels and works as if it IS part of the camera body, unlike the aftermarket brand I previously purchased. I read the reviews and tried to save $, but in the end the aftermarket grip died within a year and I spent more money to buy this one. The buttons on the other model never felt quite right and were sluggish at best. I know this grip is way over priced (hence the 4 stars), but it is machined beautifully just like the rest of my Nikon equipment. I highly recommend biting the bullet and purchasing this unit. Otherwise, shoot me a message and I'll sell you a slightly used aftermarket one in near perfect condition. ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ignore the bad, price-centered reviews This is the best battery grip you can buy for a Nikon D810. There is no competition. Many of the poor reviews of this battery grip say that it's a great product, but that they are giving a bad rating because of the price. This is absurd. The product is phenomenal, and the construction quality is superior to any third party grip available (I've tried them all). Yes, it is more expensive than other options, but it is also much better. I don't understand why others factor the price into their review. People want to know if you think it's a good product, not if whether or not you think it's a good value.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as expected Since I am used to Nikon D camera bodies this body extension is a welcome feature to get a better grip on your D800. But that's it so far. 1) On a first view this combo seems to be rugged, but once placed on a tripod with a medium weight lens (e.g. AF-S 24-70) it turns out that there is some movement between camera body and grip. 2) The battery tray which takes the D800's battery is a flimsy piece of plastic which does not fight tightly into its space, instead it has too much room for movement when the camera is moved which results in some non trustful noise. I'd recommend to use the D4's battery with its appropriate adapter BL-x.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from well-made - big help! - but a scare Having that extra shoot time without having to worry about swapping batteries is great. The hardware is made to high tolerances to fit on my D810 well. It does add weight when you are hiking up a mountain for that sunrise shot, but your biceps need the workout as much as your lungs and quads. The only flaw I have encountered so far is the battery tray. Without a jarring shock or misaligned loading, my camera went dead after shooting 300 images out in the woods. It turned out that the battery became dislodged within the battery tray, disconnecting the contacts. It was a simple fix, reseating the battery, but it was startling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid accessory The MB-D12 makes the D800 more comfortable to hold both horizontally and vertically. The control dials, AF-ON and shutter release on the grip have the exact same feel as those on the camera. The grip's multi-direction controller is smaller than that on the camera but falls perfectly under my thumb. Having two batteries gives me more capacity than I'd ever use in a single shoot.While the additional weight balances out long lenses nicely, it can be a bit too much for everyday use.The two things I don't like about it are the price and that the grip needs to be removed to access the in-camera battery. Minor gripes for an excellent accessory.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid gripthe safe bet Like many other people seem to be saying, this grip is overpriced for what it is. However, it works amazing, and with this type of thing I didn't want to take the risk with the knockoffs. I imagine I'll almost never take it off my camera except to change out the internal battery. Speaking of which, I think it's pretty cool that the camera can be operated exclusively off of the battery grip with AA batteries in it. You don't even have to have a batter in the internal slot and everything will work just as normal. If you're ever in a tight spot and don't have time to charge a batter or are traveling and don't have access to a charger for extended time periods this could really be a life saver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect partner for my Nikon D810 Two very essential features for wildlife photographers: The number of exposures-per- battery charge, and increased number-of-frames per second. The MB-D12 battery, with it's big EN-EL18 battery gives me 3000 exposures per charge. It also holds a second battery, and now I can't even count the number of total exposures per charge. Increased frames-per-second? I got that, too. In the fields & forests, distances from electricity for recharging batteries, problem solved. Capturing wing positions of an eagle's propeller-like wings, no problem with the increased frames-per-second feature.
