On article Nikon D780 Review (1194 comments in total)

losing the vertical grip and and accompanying extra battery will present some difficulty for those using this camera for Video. Because Video is a battery hog and one lonely little battery just isn't enough for someone using this camera to record video at many Weddings.

Now, perhaps the USB port can be used to provide power to the camera via a belt USB battery for recording video when the battery is depleted but we don't know that because DPreview completely glossed over the lack of any provision for a secondary power source carried on the camera.

DP review really dropped the ball on this and they should be hanging their heads in shame. While they may not wish to offend Nikon by pointing out a major fault they need to realize that ignoring something like this does the readers a dis-service.

I am also disappointed in Nikon. I was finding the D780 very interesting until I saw the lack of a provision for the MB-16.
