Excerpt: I tried to get away with a cheaper 3rd party grip but had some issues with it. I finally broke down and paid the extra money for the Canon grip and I couldn`t be happier. Everything about it is just better. The improvement in quality (over the 3rd party grip) is apparent in every way.
Excerpt: I just puchased the BG-E14 battery grip for my 70D and I love it. Yes, the extended batter life is a great highlight, one thing I hadn't considered was the added ease of handling. I have neurological problems with my hands, which makes holding things difficult at times. The added weight and size of this grip are a lifesaver.
Pros: Added Battery Life, Durable, ease of use, Easy To Use, Improved Handling, Reliable
