The Flashpoint Professional Power Battery Grip for the Canon 6D is an optional but essential accessory with excellent ergonomics, designed specifically for theCanon EOS 6D.
It all starts with intelligent links to camera functions. The grip matches 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 - selections that put more demand for power on your batteries. Your uptime will besignificantly better 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 thegrip 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.

It feels nice, fits the camera, and attaches solidly. Unfortunately its unreliable. It has some sort of electrical current problem. It would occasionally stop responding and I'd need to either shut the camera back off and on, or use one of the buttons on the main body in order to get it working again. I went through two copies and experienced this both times. Aint nobody got time for that.
Great add on if buying a 6D
As good as the OEM product and cost less by far.
