looking to get the 9 fps from the d850
am i right in saying i need
Nikon MB-D18 grip and 18c battery ?
anything else , thought i read you also need different battery tray ???
You also need the battery door BL-5 to fit the en-el18 (b but I think any 18 will be ok) and use it in the grip.

hi all, i don't suppose there's a way to have custom viewfinder grids on the d850 is there? I've got a job tomorrow where the brief is for quite specific wide / tall banner size images and it'd be great if i could have tighter grids on the viewfinder to ensure that i get the best possible framing. Live view?
Menu option d9 will turn on viewfinder framing guides. In live view pressing the info button will cycle through the display options...framing guides is one of them.

Yup... and any EL-18 works.
There are also aftermarket grip/battery clones that will work for a lot less money (i.e. DTSE). The OEM grip is magnesium and generally much better build quality IME, but quite possibly not enough to be worth the cost difference.

Next Stop the Tea Rooms

An early but sunny start for the trams on the road up at Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire. This one stopping at the Rita's Tea Rooms for a well earned break.

The tower on the rock face high in the background is Crich Stand, a memorial to the men of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment who died in battle, especially Word War I. The arched bridge is the Bowes-Lyon Bridge named after the Queen Mother and was moved from Stagenoe Park in Hertfordshire and rebuilt at Crich Tramway in 1992.

If you want the bump in FPS you also need the EN-EL 18 and charger (or clone).
And that's where it starts to get expensive. I actually still have the ExPro EX-EL 18 charger and two ExPro EN-EL18 batteries that I bought for my D850, I should sell them on really. Not sure how it works re being able to post them though.

i think as long as they are in the device there for its ok !!!!
you would need to sell me the d850 to do that.
I don't have the D850 anymore ;) Maybe if they're in the charger it's OK?

I have posted batteries on several occasions without issues.
Basically as long as they have the terminals protected, are securely packed and declared to the Post Office so that a warning sticker can be applied to the package by them, there should be no problem, (assumes not being shipped by air).
