Nikon MB-N12 Power Battery Grip for Z8
Pickup available at Camera West Rancho Mirage
Usually ready in 4 hours
For the portrait and event photographer, sports shooter or landscape photographer, looking for a more balanced feel with vertical shooting capabilities, the MB-N12 Power Battery Pack is the ideal companion to the Z 8. The MB-N12 extends shooting time 1.8x (CIPA standard) for the Z 8 vs the single battery in the camera alone, along with adding the convenience of a vertical shutter release button, main- and sub-command dials, multi selector, Fn button and AF-ON button. Added onto the Z 8, the MB-N12 lets you concentrate on capturing more moments without having to worry about battery life. Thanks to its ergonomically designed grip, it provides firm and secure holding even when a long telephoto lens is attached. The MB-N12 also features hot swapping versatility of one battery and USB power charging and delivery. The MB-N12 is powered by two EN-EL15 series batteries (EN-EL15c, EN-EL15b or EN-EL15a).
The MB-N12 Power Battery Pack is designed to extend the battery life of the Z 8 with its storage for two EN-EL15c/EN-EL15b/EN-EL15a rechargeable Li-ion batteries and has the dust- and drip-resistance performance equivalent to the Z 8.
You can even charge the two EN-EL15c batteries within the MB-N12 via USB power charging using the EH-7P Charging AC Adapter or EH-8P AC Adapter. (Using the EH-8P requires the use of the optional UC-E25 USB Cable.)
One of the two batteries in the MB-N12 are hot swappable, meaning you can remove one of the two batteries and the power pack will still provide power to the Z 8, with no interruption to shooting as long as the remaining battery still has power.
The MB-N12 is also compatible with EN-EL15b and EN-EL15a Rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. Using the EH-7P, it will take five hours to fully charge the two batteries in the MB-N12.

We highly recommend visiting us in person to experience our fine photographic tools before deciding which tool best fits your needs. Please note that our inventory is distributed among our three stores, and what you see online may be at any of these locations. Below are a few points that we’d like to make in order to meet your needs for in store pick up.
The location of each item is indicated online. For convenience, you can choose to pick up your item at any of our stores. Once purchased, the item should be ready for pick up within 4 hours at the designated store, although this might vary depending on the store's busyness and time of day. We request that you wait for a notification from us confirming that your order is ready for pick up, to ensure the best service.
If your chosen item is not available at your preferred store, we can transfer it there after purchase. If you want to pick up an item at a different store, select that store for pick up during checkout, or choose a regular shipping method and let us know your preferred pick up store via email@example.com or by responding to your order confirmation email.

We offer a concierge trade-in program for the gear you'd like to upgrade, cross-grade, or simply pass on to a new owner. This enables you to acquire the tools that fit your specific needs. The easiest way to trade is to bring your gear into one of our stores and meet with us in person. However, we also accommodate those who can't visit our stores. Our online process is both personal and simple.
To begin, fill out the form on our Trade // Sell page with the details of the fine photographic equipment or watches you'd like to trade in. One of our team members will then contact you to confirm any details we might need for an accurate estimate. We will provide an estimate that doesn’t only look at the value of your trade in but the whole picture of where you want to go. If the estimate is satisfactory to you, we can provide a shipping label for you to ship your gear to one of our stores for a final inspection and store credit. Finally, we apply that credit towards your new gear!
