Flashpoint/Meike Battery Grip for D80/D90
Jul 22, 2010
I just bought one from Adorama for $54.95, so some what on par with the Zeikos in terms of price.
--IMPRESSIVE build quality for such a cheaply priced product, compared to the MB-D80 anyway
--Fits snug to the D90 body with no movement or no gap between the grip and the body
--Accepts 2 EN-EL3e batteries of any brand, they don't have to be Nikon. I know the Nikon MB-D80 is rumoured to not work with some off-brand batteries.
--The feel in my hand is one word. COMFY! I should have been using a battery grip long ago. It feels absolutely perfect in my hand.
--The shutter release button on the grip feels just like the D90. It isn't too sensitive like the MB-D80.
--The battery grip has an on and off switch just like the MB-D80
--Rear and front dials just like on the body
--A space to store your battery compartment cover on the grip itself
--AE-L/AF-L button, that is made of rubber. Feels non-slip
I have ZERO negatives so far, it is only the first day with the product.
