Re: Nikon battery usage with grip (D500 & MB-D17)

Can you still use 8 AA's in the D500 grip as with the D300 grip?

Yes? Don't! Nikon completely screwed the circuitry, it doesn't even use half the life of the AA's before it says they are empty.

The bigger battery from the D# seems to work better, but cost is crazy.

I haven't experienced less performance with my dSLRs in the cold, but I usually don't stay in the cold with them. But batteries perform simply worse at such temperatures.
