suncoast: Is there any L-Plate that could work with this battery grip? For me, the only incentive to use a battery grip is to double the battery life when shooting time-lapse at night automatically, especially in the cold environment. It seems the battery door for the grip is larger than the MB-D12, thus I guess most of the RRS type of L-Plate can not really work well with this one, since it will block the battery door which means you may have to remove the L-Plate before changing the battery.
Any one has experience with it? Thanks.
I purchased a knockoff grip(Meike) for my D-800 and the Kirk L mount. The Kirk is the same as the RRS manufacturer. Assembly is clean and tight and the battery door works flawlessly. So far..no problems.
