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.
Excerpt: Some have said that "other's" grips are virtually the same - and therefore you can save money going with something other than Canon's product. Certainly, it is a matter of preference, and perhaps use. But, make no mistake - a grip costing half as much as Canon's brand is NOT the same thing.
