Niki Needham, Lens Product Manager at Nikon UK says: “Customers purchasing the Nikon D700 will not only benefit from the high performance features and outstanding image quality of the Nikon D700, but will also experience the enhanced shooting capabilities that come with the free MB-D10 grip. An increased frame rate and extended operating time offered by the grip makes the combination a practical solution for professionals, particularly those out in the field or on location.”

The MB-D10 allows photographers using the D700 to achieve a maximum frame rate of 8 frames per second. Professional photographers will also benefit from the grip’s ergonomic design which features an alternative shutter-release button, multi-selector and AF start buttons, all beneficial when holding the camera in the vertical shooting position.
