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. Powered by eight AA-size standard batteries or rechargeable EN-EL3e or EN-EL4a batteries, the MB-D10 extends the operating time of the camera.

Inheriting many of the features from the acclaimed Nikon D3 series, D700 users will enjoy first class image quality in a smaller more compact body. Such high performance features include a 12.1 megapixels CMOS sensor, innovative EXPEED high speed image processing system, 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit processing pipeline to provide the detail and smooth gradation necessary for outstanding print enlargement and reproduction. The D700 is ideal for those seeking a perfectly-balanced DSLR on the move, without compromising durability or environmental resistance to moisture and dust.
