    Cons:
    The buttons feel slightly cheap, but they do work well. It's just that it doesn't have the very same feeling as the buttons fro...

    Great Grip

    posted by CanadianJames on 12/13/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a great grip for the price. The construction is solid for a third party grip. It fits snuggly on the camera and stays on. The grippy parts of the grip is actually better then whats on the 60D. The buttons are springy and feel solid.
    Cons:
    There really aren't any cons. You get what you pay for and in this case you get your monies worth.

    This grip is solid. It feels great in the hand and the grippy part is excellent. The buttons feel solid and have a good springy response. The grip fits well on the 60D and won't come off by accident.
    Cons:
    While putting the grip back on my camera I accidentally over tightened the grip and sheered the tightening dial from the gears....
