A good, simpe grip,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vertical Battery Grip for Nikon D3100 D3200 Camera LF218 (Camera)
The grip works OK with both original and aftermarket batteries on a Nikon D3100.
The build quality is good, the plastic is a little lighter in colour than the plastic of the camera. The tripod screw is OK, works well with a tripod and over-the-shoulder sling. I have read some reports saying it is too short - it is definitely shorter than the original one on the bottom of the camera body, but it does the job adequately. The cable is solid, be careful when inserting and removing because it is too tight a fit.
This is a good basic grip for the price.
There are other aftermarket grips for the Nikon D3100 with more functionality (LCD screen with time-lapse, controls on the grip mirroring the ones on the camera for easy portrait-orientation shooting, etc.), but it comes with a bigger price tag.
If you are looking for a simple, no-frills grip to hold two batteries having a dedicated portrait-mode shutter button, this one might be just the one for you.
