Re: Battery grips

Agree with Chris

I prefer the extra weight on the body when using a big zoom or prime - less 'front heavy' and easier on the wrist.

I bought genuine Nikon grips - a bit pricey for all they are though.....

Enniskillen Airport is sometimes used for motor events during the year,and this weekend it was used as the service area and also for a few stages of the Ulster Rally 2013. This Grand flew in earlier today,and I caught it departing this afternoon http://helicopters-ni.smugmug.com/Helicopters/Private-...

Great shot and a pleasure to see something so different... :thumb: Thanks Noryport. Technically the photograph I'm adding today shouldn't be on here (Sorry, but it doesn't feature the aircraft) but it gives a nice idea of what the camera was seeing. http://i1361.photobucket.com/albums/r666/OurManIn...
