D70 Battery Grip

Hahnel have released a battery grip for the D70, anyone got one or perhaps an alternative?

..considering it, wondering if it's worthwhile.

Do you find the D70 uncomfortable to hold or run out of battery when out shooting ? If youanswer yes then possibly, otherwise I would say no. For me I just carry round an extra battery for the D70.

interesting........

i dont find my D70 at all uncomfortable to hold, infact i could hold it all day it fits so well.
a m8 of mine brought his Canon 350D to work yesterday ( and i aint Canon bashing here ) and i thought it was way too small, especially after having the Nikon D70 , he then put on his vertical grip, and it didnt make it much better for my gorrilla type hands

i also found the Canon very light compared to my D70 , i actually like a heavy camera as i find it helps me take better shots, ( also have several point n shoot compact cams )

i suppose the nikon vertical grip ( even if it is made by someone else ) makes the camera look more ' pro ' but that dont count a diddly squat towards picture quality or composition.....but then again, its another item for the christmas list aint it , lol

found this place on ' steve'sdigicams ' site

http://http://www.harbortronics.com/VGD70_Manual.pdf

looks like one of the better grips available, as it fits the bottom of the camera better and has the finish of the D70 as well
