    Pros:

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

    Pros:
    Great grip at a fraction of the cost of the original. The rubberized feel is pretty good and has all the controls of the original grip. It makes holding the camera in portrait mode much easier. Also, this is probably the cheapest price for a BG-E6 grip I've...
