Excerpt: I've been wanting a grip for my Canon 7D for quite a while. It does add considerable wieght, but it balances the weight of long lenses nicely, like the Canon EF 100-400mm. With Canon now shipping the 7d MkII this grip for the original 7D is remarkeably priced and I couldn't go without any longer.
Excerpt: I bought this thinking there's no way it could be from canon as canon sells its for 3 times the price. I was wrong, its a legit Canon product. I shot wedding photos last week and it did great. gives the camera a whole new feeling in your hands.
Pros: Easy To Grip, Extended Battery, Good Value, Not A Knock Off, Quality, Reliable
Excerpt: So i mostly shoot product shots in my shop, and the bg-e7 battery grip from canon helps so much. First of all my shooting time has increased because of the fact that i dont have to charge my camera as much.
My EOS 7D can go for hours on end with this battery grip!

Excerpt: There are absolutely no complaints on the BG-E7. I had waited for a few years to buy it for my Canon and wish I had done it sooner. I didn't have to worry about draining my battery on my last shoot.
Pros: Easy To Install, Good Value, Long-Lasting, Reliable
Excerpt: No doubt this is a winner. I was plesantly surprised to get this in great time before I needed to film a High School Dance presentation for 3 consecutive nights. I had no problems with my Canon 7d overheating the first two nights and it only overheated once on the third night.
Pros: Charges Quickly, Easy To Install, Good Value, Lightweight, Long-Lasting, Reliable
Excerpt: I have a knock off battery pack and it works great, except I can no longer fit my 100 - 400 lens on my tripod using the lens mount. You have to fit the camera body to the tripod. Is this a design flaw with Cannon battery pack as well?
Excerpt: Used mainly for portrait and sports photography. It's conveneient to have the extra set of controls and shutter release when you roll the camera over. I have used both the Canon and the knockoff brand, and the Canon version does have a more solid feel to it.
