MB-D11 Multi Power Battery Pack 4.1 5 20 20
I love my Nikon MB-D11. I bought the Nikon MB-D11 Multi-Power Battery Pack to extend the life of my Nikon D7000 while on extended photo shoots or travelling. The product arrived in an original Nikon box with associated packaging, Nikon MB-D11 cover, warranty and instruction manual. This is a must have accessory for the serious photographer using the Nikon D7000. Firstly, the Nikon MB-D11 is well constructed and all that you would come to expect of Nikon quality. The Nikon MB-D11 Multi-Power Battery Pack arrived dry, meaning that you have to provide an additional Nikon EN EL15, or Runs on six R6/AA-size alkaline/Ni-MH/lithium batteries. There is a lot of talk about the battery release being poorly constructed or fragile. I have found that it is pretty solid and although not super industrial, it works fine and as long as you treat it right, it serves its purpose. The Nikon MB-D11 grip feels nice and solid, matches the camera and when it is connected, does not look like a two piece unit. After installing my spare Nikon EN EL15 battery into the MB-D11, I removed the isolating strips from the base of the camera, placed the MB-D11 on the locating pin and wound the tightening screw to secure the unit to the camera. I have no problems with movement and it feels solid against the camera. A no fuss installation. Generally, what is there to say about the MB-D11? I love that I have an extended battery life being able to carry two EN EL15 batteries on a shoot, I don't find the extra weight a burden. The extra time you have shooting far outweighs the weight issue. I love the solid Nikon construction and quality of the MB-D11. Since I have had the Nikon MB-D11, it has not come off my camera, apart from having to recharge the battery. If you don't have an original Nikon MB-D11 for your Nikon D7000 and you want the extra power, get one, you won't be disappointed. Lastly, a little word of advice. Buy an original Nikon MB-D11 from a reputable dealer! There are many aftermarket versions out there that just aren't the same quality. July 9, 2013
Great Grip though heavy and over priced Since I bought my D7000 in 2012 I really needed a vertical grip. I researched all the Nikon cheap copies out there and many (if not all) did not support a full function of all the buttons. I ended up waiting on eBay for a little bit less than normal price and I finally got one back in Nov 2012. The grip is heavy with it's internal metal case but it is such a pleasure to use in the vertical mode. The metal case also is more security when on a tripod- I'm not sure I trust those cheap plastic copies as much). I'm glad it's easily on/off too because I use an old Nikon 500mm lens where I cannot put the lens on/off with the grip on due to the tripod collar hitting the grip. The thumb selector is a bit odd and pointy but functions fine (they could make it more like the MultiSelector on the Main Body for easier "feel" transitions). I use the battery tray to hold 6 AA batteries, though more as storage for backup batteries for my SB-700 flash (4-AA) than actually use them for the D7000 camera. Great grip. It adds alot of girth and weight but if you take alot of verticals you would wonder what you did without one. March 12, 2013
Great battery pack The MB-D11 was one accessory I was holding off on. Upon breaking down and getting it, I am more than pleased. My usual battery life had been around 1500 shots and I thought that was good enough, until I had to change batteries at the beach a day before hurricane sandy hit. Sand and salt water are two things you want out of your camera. After getting the MB-D11 I was able to fill up six 32 BG cards and still had juice. I have not noticed any looseness or play between it and the camera body in mine, and other than there is room for two batteries in the pack, I love it. November 30, 2012
Great Grip! The MB-D11 feels nice and solid in hand In comparison to after-market versions. An associate of mine let me use his after-market grip for a day just before i received my grip and I felt like it was very cheaply made also it heated up quite a bit while shooting and charging. Luckily for me when i received my MB-D11 i immediately noticed the difference in feel and function... thank you Nikon for having a great understanding of fit and feel! I appreciate the quality and design of another Nikon Product! July 30, 2012
Awesome accessory! Must have for the D7000 Easy to shot with, very versatile! Thanks for making this product. Makes vertical shooting a breeze. Easy to handle and Great construction. I also appreciate the way this grip is able to hold a extra battery for extended shots! I'd highly recommend this product. April 11, 2012

Answer: 
My MB-D11 works either my ONLY ONE EN-EL15 is in the body or in the MB-D11. I wonder if this issue was always in the forum. Id tested it. First, I pull-out the in-battery and use it on the grip. All function works! The D7000 controls itself and MB-D11. Same when I put back the battery inside the body of my D7000 without battery in the grip it all works too!

Answer: 
Mine does not power on if the only battery is in the body. You need a battery in the grip, with or without a battery in the body.

Answer: 
Yes it will. My MB-D11 works with only one battery in the camera on my D300s. I don't see why it wouldn't work with yours. I would recommend getting the extra battery though. It helps A LOT!

Answer: 
After a bit more research I found that the AE button will work BUT you MUST use the f10 setting on you menu to set it up. It does not opperate the same as your camera unless you tell it too.

No it wont attach as is for the D7000. There is no offical grip available for this body, but there are a few third party versions around if you have the need for a grip.
