To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's not magnesium alloy as I'm sure the Nikon one is but it does the job. Attaches solidly, controls work, feels good in the hand, looks like the "real" thing. 1/20 the price even if it breaks another on won't break the bank.
A little update : started having connection problems after 7 months. This grip fits perfectly my D850, has a good and solid feel, all controls work fine and the remote is a nice bonus, my problem with this grip is that I also bought 2 DSTE Full Coded 11.1V 3900mAh EN-EL18A ENEL18A, while the fit perfectly in MB-D12 and Meike MK-D500 as MB-D17 I have a really hard time inserting them in this grip, a bit disappointing especially since booth products are manufactured by DSTE. This combo does not give the extra 2fps.
For the low price I paid for this product, I didn't expect it's quality to be that good. The finish is very nice and fit, the rubber skin is very comfortable and precise. And the remote control works great. I can take night shots and selfies easily. The paint finish and texture is like the D850. What else do you want? It's great!
This grip for the D850 camera that DOES provide you with 9fps (when you use the BL-5 battery cover and EN-EL18 battery) - BUT - the grip doesn't connect all that well to the camera, and the connection is loose enough that SOMETIMES you get 9 fps and sometimes you only get 7 fps. IRRITATING
Received much earlier than the expected shipping date which was a pleasant surprise. The fit and finish to the D850 are great although the feel of the dials is a bit softer than on camera. The remote works well to about 15 m or so. I don't have the EN-EL18 batteries, external charger and cover yet, but other users report 9 frames / second will be obtainable with this combo but not the "all in one plug in" battery/grip version.
Very good fitment. Much better fit than the DSTE grip I have for the D800. The one thing I don’t like is the front and rear dials are too recessed and are not rubber coated like the dials on the body, making then finicky to use. They would be impossible to use with gloves on.
