Using the Battery Pack

Attaching the Battery Pack

Attaching the Battery Pack
Before attaching the battery pack, be sure that the camera is off and that the MB-D12 control lock
(Figure A-


) is in the L position (the illustrations show the D800).

1 Remove the contact cap (Figure A-


) from the battery pack.

2 The contacts for the MB-D12 are in the base of the camera, where they are protected by a con-

tact cover. Remove the contact cover as shown in Figure B-


and place it in the contact cover

holder on the MB-D12 (Figure B-



3 Position the MB-D12, keeping the MB-D12 mounting screw (Figure C-


) aligned with the cam-

era tripod socket (Figure C-


) and tighten the attachment wheel by rotating it in the direction

shown by the LOCK arrow (Figure D). There is no need to remove the battery from the camera
before connecting the MB-D12. At default settings, the battery inserted in the camera will be
used only after the battery in the MB-D12 is exhausted. The Battery order option in the cam-
era Custom Settings menu (Group d) can be used to change the order in which the batteries
are used.

Be sure to place the camera contact cover in the contact cover holder and to keep the MB-D12 con-
tact cap in a safe place to prevent loss.

A PB-6D and PK-13 auto-extension ring are required when using PB-6 bellows focusing attachment
with the MB-D12.

on the MB-D12 when the battery pack is not
