4.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT - HOWEVER! 10 May 2013
Having waited eagerly for someone to make an MB-D15 look-a-like, I ordered the first to do so from Meike. I did pay more than this for the product on eBay, but no postage was added.

Ok - it arrived today and I first loaded it with 6-rechargable AA's after changing the settings on the camera to the Ni-MH setting and telling the camera to use the grip's batteries first.

I loaded the AA's into the carriage and checked for polarity - attached the grip to the camera and tightened the screw, not wanting to over-tighten. I Inserted the AA carriage and switched on the camera. In the menu I looked at the Battery condition, hoping to see a double read-out. Only the camera battery was shown. I turned off the camera and took out the AA carriage and inserted an EL15 battery into the other carriage, loaded it and switched on. Still only one battery read-out on view.

Was the grip faulty? Would the second shutter release on the grip work? Yes, it fired the shutter, so you would think that the connection from the grip to camera was ok - not completely!! I tightened the grip to the camera further, so that the screw would not tighten any further. Turned on and bingo - Battery condition then had two read-outs.

Thinking the AA problem would also be solved I inserted the AA carriage with batteries in again. There was only one battery read out again. Aha, thought I, even though all the AA's were fully charged, perhaps it was because some were rated at 1700, some 2400 and some 2440? Reloading all the AA's again with the same rating of 2400 and inserting the carriage once more, turned on and joy of joys, the camera recognised the batteries as being loaded.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 17 Aug 2013
By Traffic TOP 500 REVIEWER

I have always used vertical grips on DSLR's because they really help me with portrait photography.I bought the Meike grip but unfortunately it did not work properly.
The connection is constantly being lost when any pressure/movement is applied to the vertical grip.
This is apparently a common problem with the Mieke branded grips but I still took a chance because of the low cost compared to Nikon's official D7100 grip.

The bottom line is you get what you pay for. I went and bought the official Nikon grip shortly after returning the Meike which works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Buy 4 Jun 2013

As good as the Nikon. It's on and working a treat. Well made and looks like the real thing. For 38.00 it was a bargain and now I have enough cash left overt to buy a flash.

win-win situation

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid 7 July 2014
By Sid
Verified Purchase
I bought this a month ago but I was only able to start using it in the last week. It fits ok seems to be of good build quality but it has one major problem. It drains the battery both in the grip and camera even when it is switched off. Both batteries would be empty after a day. I would have returned it but I was two days past the return date. Only wish i tried it out earlier and found this problem.
So my recommendation is to avoid at all costs or it's money down the drain.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok - but nothing more 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
Good things first. It works. I've had no problems with lose connections, rapid discharge of batteries or any other stuff you often hear about regarding third party grips.

Having said this, the general build quality is quite poor. It's plastic with a rubber coating, but it doesn't feel very solid. The main negative for me, though, is the fact that even if you tighten the grip hard the grip still wiggles. It seems like an attachment to the camera body (which, of course, it is, but I'm looking for a grip which will make the body and grip seem like one piece).

I might go for the original Nikon version . if only it wasn't so expensive...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not entirely compatible 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
This is okay on manual mode but when connected auto ISO jams. Also the battery within the battery grip does not power the camera as the battery within the camera ran out and the one within the grip was fine - the camera did not know this despite displaying the battery charge information in the menu.
I prefer to use my camera in manual mode so I still like this product as it is fairly good value for the price, if I want to use my camera in auto mode I will get frustrated...

one of the more expensive attachments it is a bit wobbly. you have to be Hercules to tighten the screw hard enough to stop the battery connection from disconnecting. try something else
