Three things to consider when purchasing this grip. 1. You have to remove the grip to remove the SD card. 2. Removing the grip forces you to bend the delicate-looking little cord used to connect the grip to the camera. As far as I can tell nobody else makes this type of cord and Kaavie doesn't sell replacements. My solution is to use the biggest card possible and remove the grip as infrequently as possible. You could also directly connect the camera to a computer. 3. There are no dials on the grip to control aperture or shutter speed. This doesn't bug me as much as I thought it might for some reason.
Otherwise it's light, fits well and allows the use of a second battery. Not bad for the price and it definitely improves the Df ergonomics when doing verticals or when shooting for a long time.
My copy looked well built and matched the camera very closely. Don't buy this expecting to shoot in portrait mode. the only control available is the shutter button. No focusing or control wheels.
BUT: Did not have a reliable battery connection to the camera and would flicker on and off when held by the grip. Got it to work by putting in a few spacers but ultimately returned it. Your mileage may vary and if you need a grip for your Df this may be worth a shot.
This Battery Grip is not Nikon Quality but for the huge potential savings, this Grip is well worth the price. The reason for the 1 star drop is because I ordered a Kaavi BG-2P Grip and got a Travor BG-2P Grip. Not sure if this was a bate & switch thing or not but a question for sure... I purchased 2 because I have 2 Df's and always use grips with all my Nikon cameras and would have purchased a Nikon Grip but Nikon for whatever reason is holding back??
This Grip is nicely made, fits tight and functions well. The Df reads battery charge level properly and two batteries do extend the shoot time considerably, nearly double! The ergonomics are improved 100% for long shoots and adds better balance for my long lenses (70-200mm f2.8 VR and 200mm f2 VR etc.). Does have a vertical shutter release button that works properly but no command dials etc... not a show stopper for me. No issues to date and I am very pleased with this product. Yes, the Grip must be removed to remove the SD...
