Stumbled onto this video and couldn't find anything about it anywhere with the search. Tried it on my D700 and it works! :]
where there’s smoke there’s forum fire
yes this works. it is handy, but i like the grip better because;
the flash bracketing is faster than 5fps, but not as fast as 8fps. i don't know where they came up with the figure, but the grip is def faster.
i love using the grip in portrait mode.
with 8 high capacity AA's you get a lot of use. I spent the morning shooting soccer for 2 hours, then went and shot eagles in the afternoon for an hour. the camera was on almost the whole time at the soccer game, and for somne time shooting the eagles. i still have power left without using the onboard battery.
but as i said, this little trick is handy until you get a grip.
the grip also frees up a button.
Im waiting to get the grip this winter when the eagles migrate back, but this was a nice trick to learn in the mean time. I've missed the speed of D300 ever since I went to FX, so it was nice to hear the sound of 7ish fps again.
Would there be any reason why this would not work on the D7k?
No one knows, but probably not, KK. Even with the grip the D7000 has a max of 6 fps.
Not to mention that the D7k cannot bracket as many shots.
