    Hi, is the little butterfly clip that fastens the battery draw made of plastic like 3rd party grips (that keep snapping) or metal like i’m hoping and praying it is? This really is deal breaker for me, if it’s plastic might as well buy a 3rd party and when it breaks just buy another, don’t fancy doing that with the exspensive Nik-on version!

    I think you would want a zoom for sports, like the 70-300.

    what kind of lens do you have on your camera, in this video. and would it be good for action sports shots?

    @iridiumVIII I must correct you on your pronunciation of the brand name Nikon in the USA. Officially Nikon USA pronounces it ny-kon. If you call Nikon USA for support the answer as ny-kon. Watch their TV commercials. If that’s not enough, I have owned Nikon cameras for 30 years and have met Nikon factory reps who explain that after careful study they found the US version fits the USA English better. It is officially ny-kon in the USA.

    Yes it does and it’s one of the main reasons I went with a genuine Nikon grip versus a third party version. An added bonus would be that the rubber is a bit softer and provides excellent grip.

    does the rubber have the same pattern as the camera?

    – Well. It’s the Nikon grip and it cost $209 roughly and the battery, Nikon as well was just shy of $60. You can of course purchase third party battery grips and batteries for a fraction of those prices on Amazon. The battery grip does increase the comfort level quite a bit but it also adds weight too. Sometimes if I’m looking reduce weight I’ll remove the battery from the grip and use it that way.

    Good morning, I am buying the d7000 for graduation, but i cant decide if i should buy the battery grip too? How much is the Battery grip and the battery?

  13. IridiumVIII

    – Good question! You can use the battery grip in the following configurations.
    1. Battery in the camera only – battery grip attached
    2. Battery in the camera – battery in the grip
    3. No battery in the camera – battery in the grip only

    Hope that helps

    Do you need a battery in the camera and the grip in the same time, or you just need one in the camera to use the set up?

  15. IridiumVIII

    – The cost for the battery grip and battery or the battery grip, battery and camera?

    How much was it all

    Not much, just waiting for more videos from you 🙂
    Like Chevy Chase. Us crazy Americans always saying stuff differently.

    – Haha! What’s up cosmo? (Nick-on), technically speaking is the way it’s supposed to be pronounced. Only us westerners really pronounce it (Nyk-on). In comparison it would be like someone from europe or asia pronouncing Chevy (sheh-vee) with a hard CH (checkers) CHevy.

    – Thanks for the feedback. I’ve been trying to listen to what viewers have been responding. This unboxing style went over really well when I did it with my D7000 video. I’m still tweaking it as I go along –

    – Thanks man. I got a little side-tracked with riding my motorcycle for a while.

  21. IridiumVIII

    – Yeah! I got a little distracted with riding with various motorcycle groups and clubs in my area. I’m looking at making a proper video response to your video on the PS3 slim failure.

    Well us Americans say things our own way 🙂 See in english…heck I could care less how it’s pronounced. I was just curious, and you know what happened to that cat. Like I said before I saw Can-on. But I want a Nick-on or Ny-Kon (however it’s pronounced:)
