The Nikon MB-D14 Multi Battery Power Pack is Vertical Grip designed for the Nikon D600 & D610 DSLRs to enhance their capabilities. The MB-D14 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-D14 also allows use of additional power sources for extended run times without interuptions to shooting.
Using the MS-D14EN Li-ion Rechargeable Battery Holder adds power from one EN-EL15 battery. The MS-D14EN also features a door for a power cable so EN-EL15 shaped AC Adapters can be used instead. Using the MS-D14 AA Battery Holder adds power from six 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 MB-D14 has a set of controls oriented for vertical shooting. The grip features it's own: shutter release button (with button on/off switch), 'AE/AF' lock 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-D14 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-D14 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-D14 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-D14 is an especially handy accessory for your D600 or D610.
