Anyone like care to post a picture about how a vertical grip look like? What does it do actually?
I have one, brought it along for one holiday. Not only do i find it too gaudy, it is too bulky, ended up subseq shoots i removed it for good.
I hardly exhaust two batts worth in a day so it doesn matter if it gives me option of AA or not ( i bring one extra batt along ). Changing batt issin difficult
As for macro shooting i like to hand carry my camera with main flash on one hand and second flash handheld on the other. Any weight reduction on my camera body is more than welcomed
So my grip now is sitting happily in the dry cabi

Ok then wat does vertical grip do? How come theres something to do with the batt?
As the name suggests,the Battery Grip provide extra juice by allowing you to insert extra batterys,quantity and type varies.
Also,it will also help u hold the camera better.
However,a downside is that the whole camera will be even heavier due to the grip.
Anyone has any idea if there is a 3rd-Party vertical grip for the D40? Nikon's not making them, to best of my knowledge.
I like taking portraits (I might not be good at them, but still, heh) - but on top of that, I just like taking photos vertically more (just personal choice).
So if anyone has heard a whiff of it, do let me know, thanks!
A little deviation - but here's another question. Would it be worth buying it if I'm thinking of sticking to the d40 for a year more? Come to think of it, the most common answer I'll get is: "your personal choice"; but I'm asking anyway to hear other PoVs.
checked the website.. don't think so. I guess I could save the $200 and shift it to the camera-upgrade fund for the future. heh.
