Excerpt: Don't waste your time buying the cheap versions of the battery grip. You can tell this is a solid well made grip and love knowing I can shoot all day and not have to stop and change batteries.
Pros: Charges Quickly, Easy To Install, Good Value
Excerpt: Good fit and form, matches well with the 7d body. Not sure it I would use it in the elements, as I'm not sure that I trust the weather-seal. Provides balance to heavier lenses. I was afraid it might feel or look cheap and that's not the case, and think it was a worthwhile investment, especially...
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
