Does this used model have the bl-5(for en-el18), the AA and the en-el15 holder with it?
Asked by: Daniel
Those items are for the Nikon D850 and this MB-D12 doesn't work with the D850. You would need this Nikon MB-D18 Multi-Power Battery Pack with Battery Kit for that. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1515713-REG/nikon_mb_d18_multi_power_battery_pack.html

question

I have seen the non-Nikon version of this grip with the D4 battery. The photographer said it works fine. Can this grip do the same?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can use the EN-EL18 battery in the MB-12 battery grip. You would need the BL-15 Battery Chamber Cover (B&H # NIBL5), though, in order to use that battery in the MB-12.

question

Is this a USA version or Import ? Maybe it says, but I could not see it. Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
Every time you call BH sales. The sales always tells you they get everything from Nikon. It is NOT true. After 2 replacements, now the customer service, L**y, admitted they were not from Nikon. Thus it is a gray market product. The is fraud!

question

what is the weight?
Asked by: Anonymous
I could not find an official spec on the weight of the MB-D12 grip, but our shipping weight is listed at 1.20 lbs (with packaging and instructions included). A conservative estimate would allow for 1lb or a little less, for the grip itself.

question

Is this grip metal or plastic? Does it include a tripod socket?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nikon MB-D!@ is very well made. The materials used are not specified. The outside of it is metal and rubber and it is reinforced very well and very solid. There is a standard 1/4-20 tripod socket on the bottom.
