Excerpt: Besides the obvious of doubling battery capacity, the 7D battery grip from Canon makes the camera easier to grip and feel more secure in my hands, which are large. The extra weight of the grip also helps with the stability of the camera when handholding shots.
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
