Fine for what it is!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neewer Pro Battery Grip for Nikon D5100 5200 D5300 DSLR Camera Compatible with EN-EL14 Batteries (Electronics)
We purchased this so that we could do time lapse photography and not run out of battery power and it does as it says on the tin! Or does it?
The product is actually a MIEKE and not Neewi as claimed by the dealer and there are a couple of points that may be of concern. The colour of the battery pack is fine but lighter than the camera body. However, with a camera and flash unit attached the grip is not very grippy. As the surface of the pack is smooth there is a tendency for it to slide in the hand, which makes it a little pointless in this respect. To use the grip button the attached cable is needed which sticks out under the rubber flap of the camera, not like a normal Nikon grip.
We did take a visual look at the other grips on the market on Amazon, they all look similar so we chose this one due to the price, £19 and what it was wanted for. The tightening screw to fix to the camera body rattles even when tightened and feels pretty cheap and thin.
Otherwise fine, take a look at some other grips on Amazon they just charge more for the same product.
