New battery grip for Nikon D40/D40x/D60/D5000.
Manufactured by Stdpower, a Chinese manufacturer of battery grips.

When used on the D5000, the LCD is able to articulate and be used, though it is blocked a bit if you wish to twist it down and face it forward (for self-portraits).


A supplied adapter holds one or two Nikon EN-EL9 batteries.
Also includes one AA battery adapter which allows you to use 6 AA size batteries (Alkaline, Ni-MH, Lithium or Nickel-manganese)

Built-in tripod mounting thread
Rigid construction with anti-scratch finishing matching the original Nikon camera body.

Features a vertical shutter button for easy shooting in vertical, portrait position. When in this position an infrared transmitter on the grip which is pulled out. This activates the camera through it's IR sensor. This then autofocuses and fires the shutter, but will not allow focus lock. The camera needs to be in remote mode for this function.

In horizontal position and using the camera shutter button, all normal functions are available.

There is an on/off switch on the grip. How to use:

Open the battery door on your D40/40x camera, remove the battery, remove the battery door (simple) and store it in the storage area provided in the grip.
Insert the battery grip into the camera battery compartment

Tighten the screw to lock the grip in place.

New, in original packaging.

Feedback: "I am REALLY, REALLY happy with the product!! no more pain in my wrist from the D40x small size with big lenses. My D40x looks far more like a pro level cam and that's a very cool thing".
