About Flashpoint BGe11

The Flashpoint Professional Power Battery Grip for the Canon 5D Mark III, 5DS and 5DSR is an optional but essential accessory with excellent ergonomics designed specifically for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 5DS and 5DSR.

Featuring intelligent links to camera functions, matching the design and feel of your 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 the included 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.

Performed well compared to other grips

Performed well in my tests comparing battery grips for the Canon 5D Mark III. You can see the study comparing this grip with the Canon, Vivitar and Vello at pietrzyk.us

Great Product

By

I have used a Flashpoint Battery Grip with my Canon EOS 7D for nearly 7 yrs and never a problem. So when I recently upgraded to the Canon EOS 5D MKIII I chose the bundle package which included the Flashpoint Battery Grip. Unfortunately the grip failed right out of the box. A quick call to Adorama customer support took care of the problem. Within minutes I had a UPS return label with instructions on how to send the defective grip back to them. About 2 weeks later I received the replacement and it works perfectly. Of course while waiting for the replacement grip I used the camera and it was OK. But now that I have the grip installed the camera feels better in my hand. It just feels more natural to me. Years of using one with my 7D made me very comfortable with the grip. Vertical or portrait shooting keeps my arm down for better stability and doesn't feel like the camera is "hanging" from my hand. It's just a great add-on for the camera. And at 1/3 the price of the Canon grip it is a great value.

Must have add-on

By

For almost 7 years I have used a Flashpoint Battery Grip with my Canon EOS 7D. It has become an intrical part of the camera working flawlessly. So when I recently upgrade to the Canon EOS 5D MKIII I chose the bundle with the Flashpoint Battery Grip. Unfortunately the grip failed right out of the box. One call to Adorama customer support took care of that. Within minutes I had UPS return label and instructions for returning the defective grip. In the meantime I used my new 5D MKIII and it felt great in my hand. Within 2 weeks of returning the grip I received the replacement and it works perfectly. With the grip the camera is very comfortable in my hands, must be all those years with the 7D. It is great for vertical (portrait) shooting because my arm is down by my side for stability and it doesn't feel like the camera is "hanging" from my fingers. Just feels more natural when holding the camera. This is a must have add-on.

Close substitute

By

I found the canon brand battery holder was slightly over priced, this product is not a perfect substitute but it dies the same job. There is a slight difference in materials between the grip and the body however it is not noticeable unless you are looking for it. Function seems the same as the canon model, however I have not tested voltage out with a meter. I do wish the camera would drain one battery completely before draining the next because on long shoots it would be great for swapping one at a time and with 3 batteries it would be possible to shoot all day.

Made in China - but works

By

I bought this to counter the too expensive canon similar product. It fit and worked perfectly for about 1 month then it stopped recognizing both batteries. After a very hard process with Adorama they finally agreed to replace the unit but I had to give a credit card to advance the replacement. The replaced unit worked perfectly and I returned the defective unit expecting credit to be applied back to my card. Again another very hard process occured getting Adorama to honor their promist to issue credit back to the card. They are now saying that I didn't have to use my card to get the replacement - apparantly a new policy within the time I had made the replacement order. Today I await for them to receive the defective unit back and to issue proper credit. Thankfully my Discover card is monitoring this and will stop payment to Adorama if needed so I am not on the hook. Bottom line is it's probably a good product but just beware by my direct experience that Adorama changes their policy without notice.

Does the job

By

I have the Canon battery grip for my 7-D but a friend told me about the Flashpoint when I purchased my 5D Mark III so I decided to give it a try. The grip is comfortable and so far I haven't had any problems using it. I'm very pleased with the performance and especially at such a price difference.
