Nikon MB-D10 Multi Function Battery Pack Description
The Nikon MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack is a vertical grip for select Nikon cameras including the D700, D300, and D300s. The MB-D10 allows use of several additional power sources for extended run times without interruptions to shooting. The MB-D10 features an extra set of the main camera controls that allows shooting vertical images from a more stable stance and it counterbalances larger lenses.
The MB-D10 is compatibile with the Nikon D700, D300, and D300s camera bodies. The grip can use three different battery holders for a range of extended power options. Using the MS-D10EN Li-ion Rechargeable Battery Holder adds power from one EN-EL3e battery. Using the MS-D10 AA Battery Holder adds power from eight AA size batteries. The ubiquitous nature of AA batteries and vast range of charging options such as solar chargers makes this capability most valued when shooting in the wild. The BL-3 Battery Chamber Cover is another battery holder option that clips onto the end of a EN-EL4 or EN-EL4a battery (the high capacity batteries used by the Nikon D3, D3s and D3X cameras). se of AA or EN-EL4 batteries with the D300 or D700 allows use of faster frame rates up to 8fps (frames per second).
The MB-D10 has a set of controls oriented for vertical shooting. The grip features it's own: shutter release button (with button on/off switch), 'AF On' button, front control dial, rear control dial, and multi-select stick. The control orientation allows the photographer to take vertical images with their right arm and hand in a more natural comfortable position (not overhand or underhand).
The extra mass of the MB-10 helps resist vibration while also shifting the camera & lens combination center of balance closer to the photographer thus making it easier to hold still. Photographers with larger hands will find the additional grip area a welcome improvement to camera body ergonomics.
The MB-D10 is easy to add or remove quickly. All you have to do is remove the connection port cover on the bottom of the camera and screw the grip into the camera's tripod socket. The MB-D10 has built-in storage space for the camera port cover to keep it from getting lost.
If you ever use a longer lens handheld the MB-D10 is an especially handy accessory for your D700, D300 or D300s.
