Dead on Arrival,
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)
Just received this item today (10/27/2011) and sent it back already for a refund. It did not work. I've used battery grips on my other Nikon cameras, so I know how to hook them up for sure. When I went to the menu, I saw that the camera recognized that it had a second battery installed. However, the shutter release button on the grip did not work, nor could I move the focus point. I'm a semi-professional photographer, so it was not "operator error." I made sure that both the shutter button on the grip was not locked and that the focal point was not locked.
Very disappointed, but after I sent it back, I saw several videos about fake Nikon battery grips. One video showed a guy with the same problem I had. I'm beginning to suspect that that I got a fake one. I'm not going to buy from this reseller again (Quality Photo) because I'm a little suspicious. Unfortunately, these grips are almost impossible to find due to the conditions in Japan, but I'll wait and buy from a reputable dealer like B&H Photo or MidWest Photo Exchange.

You do realize that for the buttons to work, the grip needs to be switched on? That's what the ring around the shutter button is for.
