A must have for D800 enthusiasts, this battery grip from Nikon gives you extended shooting time plus increased comfort and balance as you snap photos. It attaches to the bottom of your D800, providing a convenient grip when holding the camera in the vertical position. It offers a shutter release button, front and rear command dials, and a joystick control for setting focus points. The magnesium frame and rubberized surfaces match your D800 perfectly and give it a more professional look and feel. The grip holds an optional EN-EL15 or EN-EL18 Nikon battery, or lets you operate your camera using eight "AA" batteries (not included).
Works perfectly with my Nikon D810. Solid build although, as others have said, Nikon is asking a lot for this grip. Crutchfield's price was very good, shipped when promised and got it when they said I would. I had another clone grip for my Nikon D7000, poor build quality, battery chamber broke straight away and heard rumblings about circuitry issues with clone grips, so for my D810 I wanted a Nikon grip. Highly reccomend.
Pros: Build quality, performance
Cons: Nikon's price structure. No cons with Crutchfield.
A well made battery grip for the D810, D800, and D800e. The fit and feel are good on both my D800e and D810. In spite of the price, if you need a grip, this is the one to get. Highly recommended!
Pros: feel, fit, functions perfectly, extends usage between battery changes, increases frame rate in crop mode, should be more long lasting and reliable than the knock-off battery grips
Cons: Only con is price compared to prior Nikon battery trips for older cameras.
Excellent fit to my D800 A must gave for vertical shots Crutchfield had the best price and fast shipping
A must have when shooting Vertical and using the pro lenses. Crutchfield makes purchasing a breeze and there sales rep. are very helpful
Pros: Fits well in the hand for Vertical shooting.
Cons: May consider removing it while shooting horizontal it ads a bit of bulk to the camera. In all a good choice.
Can't go wrong with this vertical grip. I am a wedding photographer and this is my 2nd Nikon vertical grip (I also own the MB-D10 for my D700). This grip fits my D800E perfectly and comes with the 8 AA-battery holder. Also, love buying from Crutchfield. They are extremely professional, courteous, and just very nice to deal with.
Pros: Solid build quality and fits the camera perfectly.
Cons: I want to say price, but you get what you pay for.
Very easy to mount to camera.. .now camera works off of two batteries ,one in battery grip and one in camera,can use live view more often,and don't have to worry about battery power. in the grip battery changes out real easy.......Hor/vert. shooting with camera now a breeze !
Pros: Saves muscle power in your arms when shooting Vertical ! Real comfortable.....will leave on camera all the time. You won't be unhappy with this quality Nikon product.
Cons: Expensive !
Good but Price!!

It is a genuine Nikon battery grip. It does come in a Nikon box with warranty [ PAUL Sep 23, 2015 ]
Yes, it's made by Nikon w/ box, manual, etc. [ John Sep 22, 2015 ]
This is a genuine Nikon product with Nikon warranty. Very solidly made and a must if you are shooting a lot of verticals. The extra battery in the grip helps make up for the short life of the in camera battery. [ Andrew Sep 22, 2015 ]
Not speaking for Crutchfield here, but the one I ordered IS a Nikon unit and is working as described. Came with box and warranty. Have heard many negative reviews about knock-offs so (as usual) stayed with name brand merchandise and have not had a problem. [ Don Sep 22, 2015 ]
I purchased this same MB-D12 from Crutchfield. And it is genuine Nikon with a USA warranty. Crutchfield is one of the most trustworthy online stores - no need to worry about the products they sell. [ John Sep 22, 2015 ]
The one I received was the authentic Nikon brand. Bought it in January of this year and works and fits great. [ WILLIAM Sep 22, 2015 ]
Hi, yes this is the genuine Nikon battery holder for Nikon D-800/810 cameras. Yes, it comes with a Nikon Box and warranty. Thank you, Steve [ Steve Sep 22, 2015 ]
Original Nikon all the way. Includes Nikon USA warranty. Have no concerns. It is the real deal. [ David Sep 22, 2015 ]
I purchased this product through Crutchfield and it is an authentic Nikon product and therefore comes in the Nikon packaging with the Nikon warranty. [ Paul Sep 22, 2015 ]
