The BG-N10 Battery Grip from Vello is designed specifically for Nikon D600 and D610 DSLR cameras and accepts one Nikon EN-EL15 battery. With one battery in the grip and one in the camera, your shooting time is effectively doubled. The BG-N10 can also hold and utilize six AA batteries. Two battery trays, one for the EN-EL15 and one for the six AAs, are included.

The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. The BG-N10 integrates an alternate shutter release button to facilitate shooting when held vertically. The shutter button offers a lock position to prevent accidental release. In addition, the BG-N10 has an alternate AE-L/AF-L button, multi selector and main and sub-command dials. It is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip and firm curvature to further improve handling. A tripod socket is included as is a holder for the camera's contact cover so as not to lose it when it has been removed to install the battery grip.

    Vello BG-N10 reviews

    BG-N10 Battery Grip for Nikon D600 & D610 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 160.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit and finish is great Always weary of 3rd party accessories, but this Vello D600 grip was very nice. Both battery chambers worked perfectly. My only con, but this may be more a Nikon software thing. Nikon D600 allows you to program the button on the grip independantly of the camera body's AE-L/AF-L button. But I wish there was an option to simply mirror the body's assigned function. As it is, if i want to change the function of the AE-L button (ex. to AF-ON) I would need to change both button assignments, instead of changing just the body and having the grip mirror the function. Not a huge issue, but it's one of those tedious things you wish Nikon would think out a little more.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Take caution as time passes Just remember you get what you pay for. This grip did an ok job for a good while but something happened. You always take a risk using third party accessories on your camera. Especially accessories like these that actually connect mechanically and electrically. This grip caused an electrical malfunction and my shutter ended up crashing which resulted in a $250 repair on my camera. Now this in fact may be a rare occurrence but ALWAYS take caution to third party accessories like battery grips. Because these connect electronically, they can potentially damage your camera over time. My recommendation is to stay in brand and spend the extra money for Nikon's grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels like a Nikon product I shoot some club and high school volleyball and this is a perfect way to shoot verticals. WELL worth the price, which is about a third that of the real thing. Camera menus all work with the Vello grip and quality is equal to that of Nikon, in fact there is little difference when compared side by side with the grip on my D700. My only minor beef is that the battery doesn't click in place very securly and it seems, can't prove it, but the auto focus may be a tad slower. Bottom line though is that I saved a ton of money so I can deal with some tiny flaws. All in all a great accessory that is well worth the expense.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still on the fence I just purchased the Vello BG-N10 Grip for my D600 two weeks ago. NEver felt what the Nikon Version feels like, but so far ok! Why OK? It feels solid, but in my mind I keep checking if it wiggels and if the screw is tight enough. The tracking knob what moves the focusing dots, little on the tempermental side. It skips to fast or sometimes does not move. I guess I am ok with that. It does make taking portraits alot easier and less tension on your wris, especially with my tendonitis in both of my wrists. The price is great! I have my first Photo shoot tomorrow with it. Let's see how it works. If works well I will buy another one for my D7000.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Acceptable Battery Grip I looked long and hard at the Nikon MB-D14 battery grip before purchasing this unit. I've been pretty much of a Nikon fan for years, and purchased a Nikon grip for my D7000, but the price of the Nikon grip for the D610 was almost $200 more than the Vello. So, I purchased the Vello thinking if it was not what I hoped, I would return it and buy the Nikon grip. I have been VERY satisfied with this grip and really can find nothing to complain about. The fit and finish match the D610 very well, there is no gap between the grip and the camera body, and the grip functions smoothly as it should.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid alternative to the Nikon grip I love Nikon, but the Vello is a solid alternative when you just can't part with the money. I am comparing this grip to the Nikon grip I have for my D7000: - it fits - no wiggle, space, or play between the body and grip. - buttons are responsive - I use the AE/AF for bbf, and there is no lag; shutter button has good feel, and directional buttons work fine. - Command dials work - battery tray - battery will not seat as easily in the tray as the Nikon grip, however, once it's in, you're fine. Tray slides in smoothly, and fits perfectly in grip. - Love the extra battery tray for back-up use with AA batteries. - The feel is solid and grip surfaces are identical to the Nikon. - Camera recognizes the grip/battery I am happy with the performance, and very happy to have saved the extra money for other gear on my wish list.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not perfect, but good enough for me I have a Nikon D600 and a 24-70mm f2.8 lens. The lens is fairly heavy, so the battery grip provides better balance. The main reason I wanted a battery grip was so I could shoot verticals without having my right elbow wrenched up in the air to reach the shutter button. The battery grip provides a shutter release for vertical orientation shots. I examined the grip Promaster makes, and it seemed a little junky in construction. I also examined the Phottix grip, and it didn't look any better. I've heard from more than one source that Nikon's grip looks junky. I read reviews for battery grips, and the general consensus seemed to be that Vello has one of the better made grips. Upon receiving mine from B&H, I agreed that the Vello grip appeared to be more solidly constructed. I like the grip, and it makes my camera more enjoyable to handle. Having said that, the multi-selector is very squirrely. It cannot be depended on to take me to the focusing sensor that I'm trying to select, but it's possible to reach the multi-selector on the camera, so I'm OK with the multi-selector being undependable. Also, for purposes of image playback, the multi-selector is pretty much useless, because if I want to zoom in on an image in the monitor and navigate the box that selects the portion of the image that will appear magnified in the monitor screen, then one touch of the squirrely multi-selector will entirely undo all the zooming that has been done, because it thinks I'm trying to press the OK button in the center of the multi-selector. The grip also has a command dial and a sub-command dial. These work fairly well, but they cannot be 100% depended on to be accurate. For example, when changing f-stops in succession, the dial might go from f2.8, f4, f5.6, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f11, f16, f22. The dial for the shutter speeds also skips around like this. I can live with these problems by using the camera's controls. The main thing I'm concerned about it the shutter release, and it has a good, solid feel, and it works well. I'm not going to return the grip, because I suspect the problems with the one I have are typical, and if I exchange it, there will be more of the same. I'm glad to have a grip that is far less expensive than the Nikon version. I can live with the grip's shortcomings. It's possible that with use, the command dials will begin to work better. I say this because when I first attached the grip to the camera and tried to turn the camera on, nothing happened. But when I removed the battery holder and then put it back into the grip, the camera turned on just fine, and I haven't had any more problems with the camera not powering up. Evidently, there was a problem caused by the contacts having never been used before, and removing the battery holder and reinserting it into the grip cleaned the contacts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly high quality! I own a Nikon battery grip for my D7000 and wanted one for the D600. The price was higher than I wanted to spend so I thought I would try something different. I've been quite satisfied with other Vello products in the past so I thought I'd give it a try. Boy was I suprised when I saw this Vello grip. Except for size, I can't really tell it apart from the Nikon grip. It appears to be a dead ringer and fits the D600 perfectly! For the price, I don't know how they did it. This is a keeper for sure.
