Great camera!!! This is a great DSLR if you don't expect allot, keep in mind this is a ten year old camera. But i was surprised with the image quality, although it doesn't beat film's quality. It did do a much better job than my 14 MP point and shoot!!! So that's a plus in my book, the only down side i know of is the screen i wish you were able to crop into the screen a bit more than they allowed that way you can see if the focus was correct and if there was a bit of accidental motion in the picture. All in all its a great camera for the money, i would highly recommend it for any amateur photographer on a tight budget that wants to get some good quality photos. Be sure to check out some of my sample images. April 13, 2012
Has exceptional pixel quality Has been a terrific camera in all respects. picture quality, durability,and the ability to accept my old lens as well as the new. Takes as good pictures as my D200, In fact I am trying to buy one more for a spare. October 6, 2011
Love this camera It is an awesome advanced amuture camera with every feature you could aske for! April 20, 2011
My first Nion digital slr. Wonderful experience with this digital camera. Absolutley no problems with it. Trying to locate the gentleman that purchased it from me so that I can buy it back. April 14, 2011
My First DSLR I shot film (still do occasionally) for a very long time using the Nikon F100 and while everyone was going digital in the early 2000's I kept shooting with my F100. One day it dawned on me that digital SLR's might just be a good thing and so I obtained a used D100 in 2009. I used my Nikkor 28-200mm lens and took her out for some photography. I was very, very impressed by the color and detail of the D100, even at 6.1 megapixels, and it really met my expectations in dynamic range that I was used to with film. I've learned a lot about lighting techniques and exposure values since I've started using the D100. I ended up buying a Nikkor DX 18-105mm VR lens, SB-28DX flash, and a battery pack/grip for my D100 and things just got better......I've enjoyed using this camera and use it almost exclusively. I even get great images at 800 ISO and with the 28DX you get D-TTL making flash photography a real treat. I love shooting indoor portraits with the flash at 800 ISO....they look fabulous. Love the camera. I shoot JPEG only but it can shoot RAW. I think the 3fps is a little slow for shooting action but I've always managed, so far, to capture the decisive moment in continuous shooting mode. Low light shooting can be problematic, 1600 ISO gets rather too noisy, but otherwise this camera, for the price in the used DSLR market, is totally awesome. January 19, 2011

Answer: 
You need a MB-D100 battery grip, it has the ten pin terminal. The MC-30 does not work on the camera body, no connector.
