Must Have! I bought a meike grip for Nikon D300s,but i sold it after 4 hrs.The Meike price 70$,MB-D10 334$,but qualtiy of MB-D10 x10 vs Meike.With MB-D10 i feel very comfortable when i take portrait pictures.One more thing,when MB-D10 attached w D300s look like D3 (lol).Highly recommend this product!!!

The MB-D10 adds extra power while enhancing the camera’s features! The MB-D10 is very easy to attach to the camera (mine is on a D700), just make sure the camera is turned off when attaching it; the CF card light blinks as the MB-D10 is being attached, but this is normal. This battery pack accepts several types of batteries like a EN-EL3e or a EN-EL4a, or EN-EL4 rechargeable batteries; or 8 AA alkaline, Ni-MH, Lithium or nickel-manganese; some features on the MB-D10 are an extra shutter button for when you are holding the camera in portrait mode; this extra shutter button is of course on the top right corner, so the camera feels very familiar when shooting portraits; as well, the way the handle (MB-D10’s) is designed, it feels very secure in your hand -you can even hold it only with with your right hand, while using the index finger to push the shutter button; I mention you can use only the right hand because once the MB-D10 is attached to the camera, the camera becomes squared and big! Actually, the D700 camera (with the MB-D10) is a bit higher than the D3 camera, if both cameras are placed on a flat surface next to each other. On the MB-D10, there’s also an AF-ON button, a multi-selector button, as well as a main and sub-command dials for when shooting pics in tall/portrait mode. On the top of the MB-D10 (when not attached), there is a ‘holder’ for your camera’s contact plastic cover (so you don’t loose it). On the bottom of the battery pack there’s the “Tripod Socket”, which is standard and on the camera’s Menu Options you may select which battery to use first, the camera’s internal battery, or the MB-D10’s. The battery pack adds to the performance of your camera, such as the ability to shoot 8 frames per second! An overall, the MB-D10 is a ‘must-have’ accessory for your camera; it certainly beats just carrying extra batteries; it allows you to do more. December 29, 2011
Nice feel! Excellent build quality. I purchased the Zeikos Battery grip before buying the MB-D10. It was built nice. But reading the reviews of it compromising the D700, I opted to return that and purchase this. Expensive but Nikon build. And covered under warranty- my biggest concern. March 18, 2011
MB-D10 "The Second" I liked my first MB-D10 so much on my D300s that I purchased this SECOND one for my D700. (See my previous post under "Photog, Mesa, AZ"). This battery grip accessory item makes handling the camera bodies MUCH easier, safer, and just overall is a very convenient item. Also it removes the awkwardness of shooting when rotating the camera 90 degrees for those vertical shots. March 10, 2011
Wonderful product and 2 gripes I've been shooting mine for a couple of years now, with only 2 complaints. The first, if I leave the battery in the body, it won't use the grip's power, even after the firmware update. Pulled the battery out of the body, and no worries. The second: I have big hands. When shooting landscape, the knuckle at the base of my little finger sits squarely on the vertical shutter release, and, if I forget to disable it, can trigger it when I drop the camera to a rest position. That being said, the MB-D10 adds fantastic functionality to my D300, weeks of service power, AMAZING FPS in rapid fire, and a nice "Pro" feel to the camera. Highly recommended! February 20, 2011

Can you mix the type of batteries between the camera and the grip, e.g. can I put the en-el3 in the camera body and use the AAA battery pack in the MBD-10 grip?
A separate but related question: if during a time-lapse shoot I exhaust the en-el3 in both the camera and MBD-10 can I remove just the en-el3 from the MBD-10 and replace it with the 8 pack of AAA batteries and leave the discharged en-el3 in the camera body?
I will be using this on a D700

I would appreciate an answer to both questions

Answer: 
Yes, you can use the MS-D10 with the MB-D10, which allows the pack to be powered with eight AA batteries (alkaline, Lithium, Ni-MH, or Ni-Mn). Regarding your other question the battery inside the camera needs to be fully charged in order to change the one from the MB-D10. Also, you can use the EH-5a/EH-5 AC Adapter that can be use to power the camera for extended periods.

Answer: 
I would have to say no on both counts. The Nikon D300 takes the EN-EL3e. The connection is different. Also the En-El3a won't fit into the MB-D10 as the fitting goes the opposite way to that of the En-El3e. If you compare the 2 batteries next to each other you will see the differences.

Answer: 
You need a EN-EL4a for the battery pack or 8 AA batteries, they have higher voltage than EN-EL3 and increase fps to 8.

Answer: 
MB-D10 only holds 1 EN-EL3 or EN-EL4, you can also use 8 AA batteries.
8fps can only be achieved with EN-EL4 or 8 AA batteries.Both require additional battery chamber. It is the extra voltage that these batteries produce that gives you the additional fps.
