I like it!

Jeff, B&H Photo

  • 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...

Try fitting a telephoto

  • 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?

Extra life and shooting options

Kombi, B&H Photo
22 November 2014
  • Excerpt: At first I was only going to add the battery grip for occasional use. However I find I keep the grip on all the time now. I did encounter a situation where my camera and grip were exposed to splashing water. The next day I had no use of the LCD screen.
  • Pros: Double Battery Life, Easy To Install
  • Cons: Loose Weather Sealing

Great for vertical Shooting!!!!!

  • Excerpt: Used my camera without for several years. I love being able to take a shot vertical with ease. It is also great to have two batteries instead of one. If you have small hands like me, it may seem bulky until you get use to it.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Good Value
  • Cons: Too Bulky

10 March 2013

  • Pros: Easy To Install
  • Cons: Pricey

Great grip

Davy B., B&H Photo
7 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this grip for my 7D and instead of a cheaper option (which I never tested). The price is high but I'm satisfied. The only small gripe is that when mounted on a tripod, the BG-E7's bottom is where the screw from the tripod head goes, and it isn't very rigid at all (as opposed to when the 7D...
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Reliable, Well Designed
