Ansmann D40/D40X and D80 Vertical Grips

Battery and lighting product-maker Ansmann has announced two new vertical grips for popular Nikon Digital SLRs.

The battery grip N-80 Pro promises up to 5000 shots on a single charge using a 3600 mAh battery source. The grip is comparable to the Nikon MB-D80, with both command dials, a vertical shutter button and as a bonus, the grip can power the camera on the go using an included DC 12V plug.

For D40 owners, the N-40 Pro will deliver up to 2000 shots with a 2200 mAh battery. No vertical shutter is provided and the DC cable option is not available with this model.

Both models also feature an AC supply that can power the camera via the grip, so this is good news for travelers looking to cut down on the number of rechargers to take on the road.
