You get the quality for what you pay for

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

I love using battery grips which is particularly useful on potraitures. It is also very useful if you are using a heavy zoom such as my Canon 70-200 f2,8 IS II. I originally purchased non-canon grip taking chances because it has some pretty good reviews. I returned it the same day due to quality concern. I should have purcased the Canon Battery Grip in the first place.

Great Product

By

from Wilmington, DE  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

Great for portrait photography, gives good balance to my heavier lenses so that my camera feels more stable. Tad bit on the heavy side over a longer period of time and adds some bulk, but that extra shutter release is great. Takes some getting use to the extra button and looking through the view finder what seems to be lower than before without the battery grip.

Feels like the 6D

By

from Sasebo Japan  -  Semi-Professional

This grip is a great accessory and much needed for the 6D when you use wifi or GPS. I would give it 5 stars, but it just feels a bit plasticky... Much like the 6D does. Match? Yes. Perfect. Battery trays are nice, functions good, fits great and does the job far better than a knock off brand in my opinion. Just a little less chunky feel than the grips I have for the 20D and the 7D...

Perfect!

By

from Cleveland  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

The grip is great! Very well built design, solid,the grip material on the battery grip is great. Would definitely recommend to anyone else that needs a battery grip. In the past I bought the cheaper versions, but wanted something more durable and went with the EOM grip.

Makes a great camera better

By

from St. Louis, Missouri  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

Makes a great camera even more easy to use. Vertical portrays are easier. I especially like having double the battery capacity!

Works how you'd expect it to

By

from Santa Barbara  -  Photo Enthusiast

Feels like an extension of the 6D. It is built very solidly and makes the camera much more comfortable to hold when shooting portraits. For heavier lenses, the grip's weight helps to balance out the camera.

Questions about this item:

Gary M  I recently returned my 2nd BG-E13 grip by another manufacturer because the twist lock for the battery compartment did not lock securely, just kind of flapped in the breeze. I was worried that it would open and fall out when I wasn't looking. Does the lock on the Canon version lock securely?
ELENZER D  I also tried some aftermarket copies but ended up returning it. I decided to get the Canon grip and it is much much better and to answer your concern, the locking tab even though made of high quality plastic holds the batteries securely and not much wobble compared with the imitations.
Shopper  is this grip compatible with 5d mark II?
MARLON M  Unfortunately, I have not owned a 5D. Canon's tech support should be addressed directly with this question. They are the ones whom are best informed when it comes to what equipment is interchangeable.
Shopper  iS THIS GRIP COMPATIBLE WITH THE CANON F4I BODY?
LAWRENCE K  I think you mean T4i and no. This grip is only compatible with the 6D. If you meant T4i, you're looking for this grip: http://www.adorama.com/ICABGE8.html
