5.0 out of 5 stars Once you have this grip you'll never take it off!, December 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nikon MB-D11 Multi-Power Battery Pack for Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Camera - Retail Packaging (Camera)
I've never owned a grip before and wasn't sure if I would like this or not. When I received it, I carefully attached it to my new D7000. First, I'd like to warn that this grip adds noticeable weight to the D7000. In fact, initially, I was a little concerned that it might be too heavy for me, and for a moment, I actually considered returning it. However, now that I've had the grip for several days, I can say without a doubt that I absolutely LOVE it!

It truly does transform the D7000 from a great camera into an awesome camera. Sure, it doesn't change the functionality, but it does improve the handling and feel of the camera. I have average hands, but even so, I found that (without the grip) my pinkie finger didn't feel comfortable on the D7000. Adding the grip totally changed that. The grip gives extra space for your fingers and creates a boundary that gives your hand a limit so it can't slip off. It makes the camera super easy to pick up and go.

As far as the extra weight is concerned, now that I've used the grip for a while, I don't even notice the extra weight. I think it's just something you have to get used to. In fact my wife also uses my new D7000 and she has no problems with the grip either. Also, the extra controls on the grip are so handy when taking portrait/vertical shots. It really helps with the ergonomics of the camera. It's a great addition to an amazing camera. I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting a more comfortable experience with their D7000.

"Doesn't change the functionality"? I thought the whole point of these grips was to enable portrait mode, ie rotating the camera 90 degrees so that the image becomes taller than it is wide, and having the shutter button still available in the "regular" spot on the top right, with a secondary benefit of extending battery life (although the Nikon doesn't appear to increase battery life(?))
