    Easy to "install" on my Canon EOS 450D and provides weight that stabilizes the camera. Holds 2 batteries or set of AA batteries. None that I could find. It could be a little cheaper, of course, but it is fine because competing products are very expensive. I think this is a great product for its price and easy to use. Do not forget to order ...

    Sturdy product which has no difference btw orginal canon brandnew grips. just need few shootings to get use the layout and works perfect with my Canon 500D As like I said, it just need some time to get use to the buttons and layout.for first usage, it should give u a weird feeling while using buttons and wheel.also there are no Iso button which Ive ...

    Excellent quality and it is a perfect match for my 1000D. This grip allows me to run my camera all night taking long exposure astrophotos with having to worry about running out of power. Compared to the Original Equipment unit there is nothing that warrants spending more money. It fits perfectly and the ability to use AA batteries is a big plus. The ... Read more

    Solid build, works perfectly after getting used to the button layout, fits comfortably in my hand. The Av button is pretty flat, so it's kinda hard to find when your eye is on the viewfinder. It takes some getting used to. The wheel doesn't stick out as much as the camera's and just feels different when turning. A bit annoying at first, but you eventually ... Read more

    - Now I can use two batteries at the same time. - I can take photos in the vertical way more comfortably than before. - The buttons have the same functions of the original buttons. - I found interesting the capability to use AA batteries, although I don't use it. I don't know if the original one allows you to do this. - If you don't have an extra battery,... Read more

    fits perfectly on the 500D too. although it not exactly the same plastic/rubber material, looks very good e match the overall camera look. all the features work fine, half press shutter and everything else. came on the exact same box, well packed, and shipped/arrived really fast. ISO button would bee nice, but i really dont know if the original grip ... Read more

    The first PRO is price, but the low price has nothing to be to the build quality. i haven´t used the original one, but this feels really good, the bigger rubber portion than the 450D body make it more comfortable to hold by this grip than the body itself. and the matte finnish of the plastic look nicer and less fingerprint-friendly than the shinny ...

    It fits my Canon EOS Rebel T1i perfectly, with no flaws. it screws into the tripod mount and makes a tight fit. the material matches the camera, and the rubber fells exactly like the rubber on the camera. i can't think of any cons this item is perfect and worth every penny. the only thing they should change is the locking mechanism for the battery's ...

    Feels very sturdy, offers all functionality of original. Comes with a manual and all is neatly separately packed into the box. The assembly of the trays is very easy, you do need some set of nails at least though to be able to open the notch, so stop biting your nails! :) None at all, it is a great product. Have the same build of quality of this device ... Read more

    Battery grip yesterday received well packed and delivered pretty fast! Now two days tested, not yet used extensively, but so far very satisfied. The quality is really good, the real rubber feels even better as the EOS 500D. extra batteries purchased there, these are exactly the same as original. Very nice, thank you!! So far no weaknesses, in the beginning ... Read more
