The camera becomes more easy to handle and it just feels right.
Yanki Sungar
This Nikon D100 Battery Grip has completed the feel of an excellent camera, which has been my daughter's main professional equipment for a year and a half.
Lina P.
The ability to use two EN-EL3 is very nice and gives you great shooting capacity, but you can also use it with a single battery just fine.

If you have large hands and don't like the lack of support on the bottom of the camera, this grip will enhance your hold on the camera and give you a secure vertical grip with a second shutter release. Both control wheels are present and in the same relative position as the main body when used in vertical mode. A lock switch will prevent you from accidentally taking a shot by hitting the release with the palm of your hand, which happens to me frequently. The grip also adds a 10-pin terminal, which the D100 body doesn't have, so you can use your old remote release accessories.

The built-in audio recorder is handy for keeping track of subject names when you don't have time to take notes and the audio is stored as a MP3 file on the card. If you use iPhoto you'll need to keep track of the audio files manually, but if you keep your photos organized in Nikon's Nikon View the audio is attached to the picture and ready to play for you at the touch of a button.

The grip lacks a separate focus area selector; it's incorporated into the AE-L/AF-L button which can be clumsy and hard to use under pressure. I would have also liked to see a sensor in the grip that automatically rotates vertical images so you don't have to do it in software, but that feature is not available.

The ability to use two EN-EL3 is very nice and gives you great shooting capacity, but you can also use it with a single battery just fine. I've tried using rechargeable AAs, but even freshly charged ones show up as half dead on the camera's meter. All the rechargeable AAs I've come across are 1.2V instead of the standard 1.5, so they aren't really suitable for this power-hungry camera.

I was worried it wouldn't properly fit my AH-4 handstrap, but the fit is perfect.

I have just recieved my battery grip and must say that it was well over my expectations. The build and quality is no less than the D100 itself. Unlike some contrasting reviews available on the net it fits perfectly on the camera and there is no gap or whatsoever between the body and the grip.

It gives a more professional look to the camera for sure but more importantly it makes the D100 feel as it should. The camera becomes more easy to handle and it just feels right.

The vertical shutter is definately a positive and makes vertical shots easier. The AE/AF lock button helps you use those functions easily while shooting in vertical mode. The ability to use the same button as a focus area selector is also another advantage.

Obviously having 2 batteries or being able to use 6 AA's is great. The mic recorder on the grip works better than expected too. The sound quality is above average and playback is more clear than to be expected. I was afraid that it would sound fuzzy and too low, but it is clearly audiable.

I haven't tested the 11 pin remote yet but having one is definately better than none.

Just go and get one before they run out if you still intend to use your D100.

The MB-D100 fits perfectly with the D100 and feel just like its a part of the camera, its also convent that it includes a AA battery tray for backup, however you'll never need it with 2 EN-EL3 batteries inside it, they seem to last forever.

Verified Purchase
This Nikon D100 Battery Grip has completed the feel of an excellent camera, which has been my daughter's main professional equipment for a year and a half. She wanted it since she purchased the camera but the price at the time was almost a quarter of the camera price, so she thought she would leave it for later. She's had several photo shoots since she got it and she is very happy because it helps her complete her projects with more ease and comfort. The price was excellent too! It was a fraction of what we would have paid in Europe where we live, and the seller did an excellent job of packaging and delivering in plenty of time (the lower end of 4-10 days).

So Nikon, Cameta Camera and Amazon, thanks very much - a job well done!

I'm quite pleased with the grip.

I find I really miss a vertical grip if

the camera doesn't have one.

Being able to use one, or two EN-EL3's

is a plus. The build is kind of "plastiky"

feeling. I use a D2h normally, that's probably

why I find it feels a bit cheap.

I'd give it 5 stars, If the plastic used

was a bit heavier. But for the money, It's

worth it.

I have the battery pack for the CP 8800 and it feels just right. However, the much larger pack on the D100 feels just too big. It's very well made and gives you some options that would greatly increase your shooting capacity.

I sold it cause it just wasn't right for me. If someone didn't mind increasing the size of their D100 by that much, it might be fine.

the MB-D100 is a great, sturdy product that extends the functionality of the Nikon D100 dSLR.

the product reached me promptly in its original box and was properly wrapped in bubble wraps.

get one while stock last, if you own the Nikon D100.
