    Good alternative to expensive brand products

    posted by tuhoojabotti on 07/07/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Easy to "install" on my Canon EOS 450D and provides weight that stabilizes the camera. Holds 2 batteries or set of AA batteries.
    Cons:
    None that I could find. It could be a little cheaper, of course, but it is fine because competing products are very expensive.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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...
    Cons:
    The latch that opens the battery compartment is slightly difficult to open. Not any big deal but there has to be something to c...

    Pros:
    Solid build, works perfectly after getting used to the button layout, fits comfortably in my hand.
    Cons:
    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. Th...

    excellent product and build quality

    posted by saveyourskin on 11/18/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    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 itse...
    Cons:
    no ISO button no charger

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    i can't think of any cons this item is perfect and worth every penny. the only thing they should change is the locking mecha...

    Pros:

    None at all, it is a great product.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    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, ...
    Cons:
    So far no weaknesses, in the beginning I thought he stayed loose but when i turnt the wheel tight is feels super solid.
