Excerpt: I learned that if you are going to buy an expensive camera, then you might as well buy good quality gear to go with it. This grip fits perfect of course and the same material as the camera makes it flow nicely together. I would highly recommend.
Excerpt: I tried a few 3rd party manufacturer's grips and none come close to the quality of this one. It matches the camera perfectly and the ergonomics are perfect for vertical shooting without holding the camera in a strange position. Also really like the option of using AA's in a pinch.
Excerpt: The Canon BG-E9 Battery Grip is a great addition to any photographers kit. The added battery life is a plus, but in my opinion, the increase in the size of the camera makes for a more stable and versatile platform to shoot from. As far as reliability, I stick with Canon products. In the past I have owned some of the aftermarket grips, but they ended up in the trash can. They simply don't stand up to the quality of an official Canon product.
Excerpt: Awesome grip, exactly what I wanted. I especially like the vertical shooting option with button. The service team was great at answering my questions on this product as well. A bit heavy but there is no way to get around that in the design.
