Extra life and shooting options

  • 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. After checking the battery compartment there was some moisture inside. All function returned after drying out, but I recommend not using the grip in a situation you expect to be exposed to water.
  • Pros: Double Battery Life, Easy To Install
  • Cons: Loose Weather Sealing

  • 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

BG-E7 Battery Grip by Canon

DFNDR13, B&H Photo
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: This grip completes my 7D and makes it more comfortable to hold when shooting normal landscape photographs. I shoot in cold hockey arenas a lot so having two batteries in the camera makes it easy to shoot without having to worry about losing power throughout the day. It also makes shooting vertical or portrait shots much easier, giving your hand a natural grip.
  • Pros: Easy To Install
  • Cons: Pricey

Great grip

  • 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 is mounted directly on the tripod, the 7D is VERY rigid!). So when using a tripod I do remove the grip and therefore lose the advantages it provides.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Reliable, Well Designed
  • Cons: Not Rigid Enough, Pricey
