Joystick/Multi-control or not? Some say yes, others say no. Any one or Adorama staff can confirm this please?
Yes. I has a "joy stick" button on the back side just off center to the right (shooting position). I have both the the Flashpoint and the Canon brand. The Flashpoint works fine; however, I trust the Canon grip more. Yes, it cost more, but you don't want it fail at the wrong time. That is not to say the Flashpoint will fail. I figure for what the 5D MKIII cost using OEM parts and accessories are better. My Flashpoint can with the camera body as a package from Adorama. I purchase the Canon anyway. However, if you are shooting foe a hobby only, you might want to save the money and get an extra battery (Canon).
