The Flashpoint Professional Power Battery Grip for the Canon EOS 70D is an optional but essential accessory with excellent ergonomics designed specificallyfor the Canon EOS 70D.
Featuring intelligent links to camera functions, matching the design and feel ofyour camera while doubling the battery power with a twin cell chamber that can load a choice of one, or two battery packs. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode - operating modes that use more power compared to using a single LP-E6 pack. In addition, with theincluded battery magazine, you can also run the camera off six AA batteries.
The non-slip rubberized grip offers perfect balance in any direction with full vertical shooting controls, which can be independently turned on or off as the photographer needs to enhance camera handling, especially for shooting vertical pictures - not videos, please. The grip has generous operating controls as well:shutter button, Main Dial, multi-controller, AF point selection button, AE lock/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button. The base of the grip has a standard 1/4-20 tripod socket and a hand strap mount.Your camera's original battery door fits snugly in a protective hidden slot for instant retrieval.

I own a few camera always buy the canon brand but this time wanted to try something different glad I did u cant really tell the different from canon Crip to Flashpoint.
Nice battery grip, you don't have to worry about your single battery dying because your spare is already in place. Also, you can use double A batteries for this one, it comes with its own battery holder. I like this product.
