About Flashpoint

The Flashpoint Professional Battery Grip will hold up to two LP-E6 Li-on Rechargeable Battery packs or six AA Batteries offering double-length shooting time.

It also provides the ability to stabilize the camera while shooting.

The vertical shutter release will make shooting with the camera in a vertical position just as comfortable as shooting in the horizontal..Flashpoint by Meike

As good as Canon? I think so...

This battery grip is comparable to the Canon unit in fit, form and function. It looks exactly like the much more expensive Canon unit and (appears) to be just as good. We will have to let time tell if it lasts long enough to justify it's cost, but for now, I feel like I made a very wise purchase and saved some money at the same time.

Stopped working!

I took my brand new Canon 5D Mark II out for a shoot in the San Francisco peaks around Flagstaff. I tested it with my friends that morning.... Unfortunately when I went to turn on my camera..nothing at all happened. My heart sank! Luckily I had my 1d MIII as well. I thought the camera was defective (purchased new through Adorama). When I returned home I found the camera worked, just not with the FLASHPOINT Battery grip that was sent to me ( Although the product box says MeiKe) (Sku ICABGE6AP)

Price is right- works fine

By

Used it for 2 years - droppped it- boke it - pieced it back together - worked fine until I bought another just like it. Have no problems- Just keep it tight on the camera

Good product for the $$$

By

from Gonzales, LA  -  Pro Photographer

I am a professional wedding photographer and use this product as it is labeded, as a "Professional Camera Grip". It works just as well as the Canon grip but is inferior in durability. I have had to replace 2 of them because the arm that inserts into the battery compartment broke after extended use. However, I continue to use it because of Adorama's exceptional customer service and excellent replacement guarantee!

Not for tripod use

By

from Spokane, WA  -  Pro Photographer

The bottom flexes when mounted on a tripod making it nearly impossible to do any precesion work on a ballhead with it attached. Also hard to keep it from working loose from the camera. I should have known better, you get what you pay for. Now I am going to buy the genuine Canon, no more will-fit stuff for me.

Good accessory for extra battery life

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Casual user

Allows for two lithiums or 6 AAs with the battery magazine, which is great flexibility if you don't want to fork out a ton of money for additional backup rechargeables. Fairly light, and nice ergonomic design, but best of all is the additional shutter and AF-lock button on the base. It makes shooting vertical shots a lot easier with a bigger camera body. Possibly due to the lightness, it can feel a little flimsy (though it probably is just fine). Not necessary if you just like walking around and shooting photos, but if you're an event photographer of any kind it's a must.

Cant beat the value.

By

from Grand Terrace, CA  -  Semi-Professional

This is a very good grip for the price. If you are budget conscious and don't want to pay the Canon premium, this is your stop. I have shot several weddings and portrait sessions and I have not missed a shot. Many times I have read bad reviews about non brand name having issues, this is not the case with this grip. I really like the rubber grip for this model. It feels really good in my hands. Now I cant speak for the Mark 3 model of Canon grip but I have owned the Canon grip for other cameras and this works all the same.

Why pay more?

By

from ND  -  Semi-Professional

If you have the cash and want the Branded product you should go for it. This product works for me and my budget. I have not used the branded product but can't imagine it's that much better to justify the price difference.

Very good product for the money!

By

from Louisville, KY  -  Semi-Professional

This battery grip was part of the 5d Mark ii package I purchased in Dec. 2012. I will not be using the grip religiously, and did not want to shell out the money for a Canon grip just yet. I currently have it installed on the body, and it works very reliably. It doesn't have the solid feel of a Canon grip, and the dial that screws it into the body seems a little cheap when you turn it. But all in all I am very pleased and would receommend it to others. It's a deal for the price!

Great product for the cost

By

I brought this because the genuine Canon battery grip was far to expensive, this is easy as good at the Canon grip.
