My MB-D11 works either my ONLY ONE EN-EL15 is in the body or in the MB-D11. I wonder if this issue was always in the forum. Id tested it. First, I pull-out the in-battery and use it on the grip. All function works! The D7000 controls itself and MB-D11. Same when I put back the battery inside the body of my D7000 without battery in the grip it all works too!

Mine does not power on if the only battery is in the body. You need a battery in the grip, with or without a battery in the body.

The purpose of using the battery pack is to provide your camera with extra power camera with two EN-EL15 batteries or 6 AA batteries and is equipped with a shutter release button and command dials for vertical shooting.

Yes it will. My MB-D11 works with only one battery in the camera on my D300s. I don't see why it wouldn't work with yours. I would recommend getting the extra battery though. It helps A LOT!

After a bit more research I found that the AE button will work BUT you MUST use the f10 setting on you menu to set it up. It does not opperate the same as your camera unless you tell it too.

Mine doesn't - not sure if I have to change a set up or something - but my AE button works on the camera but not the grip. Which forces me to use the shoot button to focus - trying to resolve this

Question

Seemingly priced for near-perfection, does this unit possess a commanding grip to the body?

A previous encounter with a similar unit was discouraging. It was attached with a large screw device that would not stay tight long enough to make me comfortable. This looks like the same connection from here. How is the MB-D11 attached to the D7000? Has this issue been addressed? Thank you.

I use this grip regularly with my D7000 and have not had any slip issues. Overall the D7000 and grip are slightly smaller than my D300 and MB-D10, but make the handling similar. I use the grips because they help balance the cameras better when using large lenses such as the 70-200 f/2.8 G VRII and the 300 f/2.8.

Question

Is the MB-D11 fully compatible with the D800/e as alternative to MB-D12 ?

I can't afford the price of the MB-D12 and EN-EL18 for my D800/e. I don't mind using the MB-D11 with EN-EL15 Batteries as a less expensive alternative if it is possible.

Hi,

The answer is no.
There is always some degree of resistance but it is a good principle not to expose your camera and lens to water or dust.
Off course sometimes this is not possible but try to minimize it and if it happens clean it or dry it as soon as possible.
You can find in the market accessories to protect your camera and lens from weather and dust.

Best Regards

Question

when shooting in raw and CH mode, does MB-D11 increase the number the shoots?

I mean not the Number of frames per second, just the number of continuosly shooted frames,
cause when shooting in JPG, it's possible to shoot like 24 frames continously,
but in RAW it's only possible to shoot 9 frames continuously

Has nothing to do with the battery, the buffer is filling up. I don't know what sd card you are using but it sounds like it's not accepting the data fast enough for the buffer to clear. Try using a Lexar Professional UHS-1 or San Disk Extreme pro UHS-1.
