BG-N11
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the Nikon D7100
and D7200 SLR Cameras
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations
on your new BG-N11 battery grip purchase. Enjoy
the many benefits that a battery grip offers, such as
extended shooting time and more control and comfort
when shooting in a vertical (portrait) orientation.
The Vello BG-N11 is compatible with the Nikon D7100
and D7200 DSLR cameras. The BG-N11 accepts one
Nikon EN-EL15 rechargeable battery, in addition to
the camera’s internal battery. Six AA batteries (alkaline,
Ni-MH, lithium, or nickel-manganese) can be used
instead for added convenience. The BG-N11 is equipped
with an alternate shutter-release button, AE-L/AF-L
button, multi selector, and main and sub-command dials
for shooting in a vertical position.
