You should keep you camera loaded with a battery, and one in the MB-D10. The MB-D10 was built to provide an additional power supply to boost the one already in the camera. If you only assume you should use only the one in the MB-D10, why did you buy it? It would only give you the power already provided with your camera loaded with a battery, but without the MB-D10. Hope that helps.

Question

Can this allow me to shoot at high frame rates in RAW?

I want to know if the MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack will allow me to get 6, 7 or 8 frames on my D300s when shooting in RAW or does it only allow the camera to shoot at 8 frames on TIff,JPGE, and the other files?

Let's put it another way. With your MB-D10 loaded and ready, you will be able to shoot raw pictures at a greater frame speed than you would have been able to without it.

The number of shots that can be taken with fully-charged batteries varies with the condition of the battery, temperature and how the camera is used. With one EN-EL3e battery in the camera is approximately 1000 shots and one in the MB-D10 is also approximately 1000 shots.

Question

Is it possible to mix battery types between the MBD-10 and Camera Body?

Can you mix the type of batteries between the camera and the grip, e.g. can I put the en-el3 in the camera body and use the AAA battery pack in the MBD-10 grip?
A separate but related question: if during a time-lapse shoot I exhaust the en-el3 in both the camera and MBD-10 can I remove just the en-el3 from the MBD-10 and replace it with the 8 pack of AAA batteries and leave the discharged en-el3 in the camera body?
I will be using this on a D700

I would appreciate an answer to both questions

Yes, you can use the MS-D10 with the MB-D10, which allows the pack to be powered with eight AA batteries (alkaline, Lithium, Ni-MH, or Ni-Mn). Regarding your other question the battery inside the camera needs to be fully charged in order to change the one from the MB-D10. Also, you can use the EH-5a/EH-5 AC Adapter that can be use to power the camera for extended periods.

I would have to say no on both counts. The Nikon D300 takes the EN-EL3e. The connection is different. Also the En-El3a won't fit into the MB-D10 as the fitting goes the opposite way to that of the En-El3e. If you compare the 2 batteries next to each other you will see the differences.

MB-D10 only holds 1 EN-EL3 or EN-EL4, you can also use 8 AA batteries.
8fps can only be achieved with EN-EL4 or 8 AA batteries.Both require additional battery chamber. It is the extra voltage that these batteries produce that gives you the additional fps.
