Try fitting a telephoto

Great for vertical Shooting!!!!!

  • Summary: i bought the NEEWER BG-E7 battery grip for my 7D...its worked great...the plastic & rubber matches the camera...all buttons function as designed...im not sure i will ever spend the extra $ on canon version grips as long as the 3rd party units works as well as they do
