Not as great as Sony's battery grips

I do not have small hands. This battery grip improves the feel of my 5dmarkIII when holding the camera in landscape mode. The materials are not bad and there are no annoying gaps. The grip has a good fit and look with the camera. What I do not like is the feel while holding the grip in portrait orientation. The rear contour of the grip is uncomfortable and the shutter button feels cheep, too small, not as deep or resilient as the camera's shutter button. Canon should have copied the design of...

The rear contour of the grip is uncomfortable and the shutter button feels cheep, too small, not as deep or resilient as the camera's shutter button. Canon should have copied the design of the 1d shutter design (identical to landscape shutter) instead of being cheap. Also Canon should have mounedt the controls lower for better center of gravity while holding the grip for portraits like Sony did with their Battery grips. The controls on the BG-E11 are just too high on the grip, it really feels awkward and cheap for the price. Not worth the money.

Bigger that I had remembered

By

from West Bend, Wi  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I had a grip on a previous canon body and I don't recall it being this big but in the end it just plain works. I was looking to increase battery shooting time and well as a more natural hold when shooting vertical. This grip does it all very well. Additionally it is very well built.

Added Grip

By

from West Covina, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Love the way this grip fits the hands. Also the convenience of another shutter button so you are not reaching over the top of the camera when shooting in portrait mode.

Great addition to my arsenal!

By

from Ashburn, VA  -  Pro Photographer

I purchased this as an option when I began having issues with my elbow hurting, this allows me to change the form of my arm and not be in pain. Shooting 35 weddings a year it's essential. As always adorama does a fantastic job in their service and delivery.

Way Better Than 7d Grip

By

from Chino, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I have big hands & shoot vertical often, so this is much needed. I was impressed how much nicer this grip is than the Canon 7d version. More padding & joystick. Also it's nice that the batteries load in from the side & not the back. This allows for better padding/grip coverage on the back. Also I don't see it wearing like my 7d grip has. It's better built & you can see/feel the difference straight away. I don't know how this compares to 3rd party grips. My motto is pay now or pay later. Just buy the canon one & have no worries. Thanks Adorama

Nice addition

By

from Aiken, SC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I like the extra battery life and ease of shooting this grip affords you. It is a little over priced in my opinion but I must admit it feels just like it's built onto to the camera with a few quick twists of the fastener. I haven't tried any of the cheaper third party versions so I may be a little too focused on the price but that's my main complaint. It is also a little bulky so I probably wouldn't carry it unless I know I'll need the extra battery life or will be shooting mainly in portrait style.

Love the grip

By

from LA, CA  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

I went from my grip on my Classic 5D to this grip on my new 5D Mark III and I am so happy with this grip. I can toggle my AF points so much faster on this grip and it fits better in my hand than the grip on my Classic. 5 stars
