p.1 #1 · D7000 + MB-D12


How likely do you think it would be for the MB-D12 to work with the D7000?

Maybe even increase FPS.. however nothing can fix the small buffer, but still.

Not that I'm complaining about needing more power, the EL-EN15 is too good to me.

Based on the existence of the MB-D11,

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/735928-REG/Nikon_27013_MB_D11_Multi_Power_Battery.html ,

which was designed specifically for the D7k, I highly doubt that the MB-D12 will work with the D7k. Don't get a 3rd party or counterfeit brand- that route has been tried by others, with many tearful tales resulting.

I'd think the likelihood of the MB-D12 working with the D7000 would be nil. If it did, then surely, the MB-D11 would work with the D800 and Nikon wouldn't have made the MB-D12?

If you're after a grip for your D7K, then go with the genuine Nikon MB-D11. Lots of people whine about the cost, but it's guaranteed to work, weather sealed, and built to be abused.

p.1 #4 · D7000 + MB-D12


I have grip already. Just wondering is all.

It'd just be nice to fit the D4's battery but I suspect the reason they didn't keep the MB-D11 for the D800 was probably size.

I'm just trying to convince myself that I don't want the D800.

Considering that the MB-D10 for the D300/D700 has a MSRP of $334.00 the $616.00 MSRP for the MB-D12 is a rip-off and calling it such is not whining but only stating the facts. Only a fool would consider it whining to not be complacent about being taken advantage of by a company to which they have been a loyal customer.

The 800E with the battery pack becomes a $4,000 camera which is a bit much for this level of camera. Nikon is taking advantage of its customers, again, with its predatory pricing. No reasonable justification for charging 84% more for the battery pack for the D800 than one for the D700. The MB-D12 is to sell for the cost of a D3100 camera which is a much more complicated item to manufacturer for Nikon.

$616 is a typo to be corrected. The actual price is $449

The battery grip price will no-doubt drop in time. A new MB-D11 costs a third less now than it did when I bought mine this time last year.......
