Style Name: Canon 7D
Alright, I was skeptical about this after reading so many mixed reviews, but the draw of a battery grip that seemed to be well loaded and at a much cheaper price than Canon's...I couldn't resist.

Am I glad I got this? Definitely!

Okay, let's get things out and open: yes, this is NOT exactly like the Canon battery grip. Duh. It's not made by Canon and it doesn't cost $300. That said, however, this is an amazing "replica" that fits the bill just fine!

I was a little concerned when I got this because of reviews that said it was all plastic and cheap and that it would screw up my camera. My fears were quickly put to rest as soon as I opened the box.

I'm not one to dwell on packaging (if it comes in a brown paper bag but works great, who cares?) but the box for this was good, and the grip was wrapped in a bubble-wrap envelope. There's a protective cover-cap for the connector to keep the pins safe (and the cover isn't flimsy).

Taking the grip out, the first thing I was surprised to notice was that, yes, it DOES have a rubber grip. It's not as rough as the inlaid gripping Canon puts on its cameras, but it is definitely not just a textured part of the plastic. This is a great touch. There's a strap-hook/bar on the bottom, as well as a tripod mount so you can still use a tripod even with the grip installed.

According to the instructions you should always attach/detach the grip with the batteries removed, so that's what I've been doing.

Attaching the grip to the camera is easy. Just pop the battery out of your camera, and take off the battery cover door (there's a spring-clip to detach the door). The grip has a place in the handle where you can store the battery door, which is fantastic.

So I took a chance on this one - thanks to the other good review, and I'm glad I did. The box it came in looks a bit dated and I was scared to open it. However once I did I was happy with the quality. I'm used to Nikon grips - so this is definitely lighter and less 'heavy duty' feeling (as all Canon gear is). However testing it out feels solid and I'm actually appreciating the lightweight of canon gear after I add all my accessories and spend all day with it.

So! I've shot three shoots with it - one an all day 13 hour event - outside, inside, dirty trains - steadicam mounted, monopod mounted, shoulderbrace mounted and plain hand-gripped and this performed flawlessly. It REALLY makes the camera much more useable as well I should mention - it's one of those must haves. I compared it with my friend's actual canon grip and the only difference I noticed was his has the rubber grip along the battery compartment back as well as the front.

That's a hugely minor thing tho - and other than that you really can't tell the difference. Solid-wise - usefulness-wise - etc. - it's the same. So I'd say based on a few days of solid use out of it i'm impressed.

Hope that helps!

Style Name: Nikon D300/300S/D700
The comment from the reviewer above(Mr.Phillip) was so useful. I contemplated different brands myself but just looking at the product made me feel that its well made. So finally i got mine today and i cant be happier. Great fit and finish and your Nikon D300 recognizes the grip immediately and all the functions work great. I was wondering if the shutter release button and the scroll wheel will be as good as Nikon and yes it was.

I rarely buy anything else other than a Nikon, but i thought i will give this a try and i am glad i did. The Nikon MB-D10 is a great grip too, its made of magnesium alloy and rubberized coating just like the camera, hence its expensive.

If you are going to place your camera in rocks or if its going to take some beating in buses in africa or forests in the amazon, then buy the Nikon. If you are a casual user, who keeps his cameras in his bag all the time other than when its being used, then buy this one. You wont be dissapointed.

Style Name: Nikon D7000 Digital SLR Verified Purchase
I don't normally write product reviews just to avoid redundancy, but seeing how this product only has one review so far, I thought I'd give back to the Amazon's community who has helped me with purchasing decisions on so many occasions. I think what makes my feedback even more valuable is the fact that I also own the Nikon-built battery grip (MB-D11) which at this time is exactly three times the cost of this grip. I know that a lot of the D7000 owners have been waiting for Zeikos to come through with a high quality alternative to the overpriced Nikon grip, so hopefully this review will help you decide if the savings outweigh the compromises (there are few major ones).

I bought the Nikon MB-D11 grip for one of my D7000s just about as soon as it came out (no alternatives available at the time) and have been very happy with it except for its price. Main reason why I use it is to offset the weight of the 70-200mm lens. The second D7000 set-up is never that heavy, so I decided it was worth waiting for the cheap third-party alternative.

The first third-party grip that showed up on Amazon was of Neewer brand. I was ready to pull the trigger as soon as I saw its price (currently 1/6th of Nikon's and 1/2 of Zeikos'), but after reading the reviews discussing a strange issue of "reversed dials" I decided it wasn't really worth the frustration. I shoot for a living in a very fast-paced and constantly changing environment, so I'd hate to take a chance of missing an important shot because the dials on my camera are screwed up. I know this probably makes no difference to those who leave their camera on "Auto", but I depend on correctly functioning equipment thus very biased in this regard.
