Since it is added to the bottom of the camera, it adds some height, making the camera fit your right hand much better.

I have a Canon 7d and these grips feel exactly like the 7d body no difference in texture built quality doesn't feel like plastic Very impressed.

I like having the extra battery life and the shooting buttons on the sides make shooting in vertical mode much easier.

Why would you need a battery grip? When over a year ago I purchased the battery grip for my 450D ("XSi) I was surprised by how much more I got out of my camera by simply adding a battery grip. It's not the fact that you have twice the amount of battery power - simply getting a second battery pack will do that, and since the grip comes without any batteries, you'll have to purchase that anyway.
No, the best thing about a battery grip is that it literally allows you to get a better grip on your camera. Now, the 7D is somewhat larger than the 450D, and thus this may not be as important to people with smaller hands. But there are more than one reason to add the grip to the 7D: it transforms this great camera into a truly outstanding one:

- first of all, the grip significantly enhances the 7D's handling. Since it is added to the bottom of the camera, it adds some height, making the camera fit your right hand much better. But that's just the beginning. The grip has near-perfect molding (at least for my hand), making holding the 7D so much more comfortable.
- I shoot lots of portraits, and the grip adds shutter button, and main camera controls to the portrait orientation. Being able to hold the camera upright comfortably alone is worth the price of this grip. Again, the mold for this orientation is near perfect.
- (this may look obvious at first, but is often overlooked) you can remove the grip. The reason why I point this out is because with the grip installed, the 7D is very similar in size to the 1D. But if for some reason size or bulk is at a premium, you can take the grip off - something that is impossible with the 1D
- The grip is by no means light, and adds almost 50% of weight to the camera. This is a mixed blessing.

I have been buying all the battery grips for my Canon cameras (10D, 20D, 40D, and now 7D). This is the latest grip I bought for my new 7D. It was also the first accessory I purchased.

Pros:
* Overall GREAT accessory - very useful
* Significantly improves handling and feel of camera
* High build quality and feel
* Improved battery life with two LP-E6 lithium batteries
* Can take 6x AA batteries instead of the two LP-E6 batteries
* Includes a place in the grip to put the battery door so it doesn't get lost
* Well designed with control buttons and knobs
* Makes you and your camera look like a PRO!

Cons:
* It costs a bit of money, but considering the price of a 7D, it worth the added cost
* (minor) Shutter button does not have the same feel as the one on the body - it's easier to activate/more sensitive

The new Canon 7D DSLR is advertised to be weatherproof to more or less the same standard as the 1D series cameras. I must say that I am very pleased with this camera in general and its weather protection seems to be excellent. Indeed I have taken my 7D out into rainy, windy, cold weather and used it all day without protection from the elements.

Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the Cannon battery grip BG-E7.

I purchased a Canon BG-E7 for my new 7D and without much thought about it, I expected the same kind of weather protection as the 7D itself. No!

I found that the BG-E7 and my 7D to which it was mated quit working after just a couple of hours outside in wind and rain. I removed the BG-E7 and dropped a battery directly into the 7D and like the proverbial Timex watch, the 7D kept on ticking despite the rain and wind.

The BG-E7? It still does not work. I'm going to send my BG-E7 in for 'repair'... but since the basic design of the BG-E7 to 7D physical interface seems to be lacking in sealing, without a redesign of the BG-E7, I doubt if there is anything that can be done to fix the BG-E7 so that it can be used outside in severe weather. We'll see...

My advice? If you are planning to be active with your 7D photographing outside in bad weather do not use the Canon BG-E7 battery grip!

I really like this battery grip for my Canon EOS 7D and keep it attached almost all of the time. If you are like me you will want to get a chance to see it before you buy it so I made this short video of a virtual demo of the BG-E7. I hope that it is helpful to you.

CORRECTION: I made a mistake when I mentioned that the power switch on the battery grip controled the battery power. I should have said that it turns on and off the use of the grip's buttons and selection dial. Sorry about that.

Everyone has been ranting (for the most part) about this grip. As it compliments an already outstanding product, it's hard for Canon to mess this one up. They didn't, either. In order to break things down, I'm going to talk about the grip on two different aspects, ergonomics and functionality:

1. Ergonomics. 3 stars. Not the grips fault, however, more my hands' fault. I'm no grizzly bear, so my paws don't quite make it all the way around the grip. However, if you find yourself palming boulders, this will probably be your favorite new toy. When shooting vertically, my pinky finger sits right in the corner that my 7d and grip create, and it is quite the comfortable home for this finger. However, when I switch to vertical, I find that the grip is a bit too wide, and a bit too rectangular. If you look closely at the side of a 7d (the right side of it) you will see that it tapers slightly, getting thinner towards the bottom of the camera body. The grip does NOT follow this tapering line, it is much more square. After using the grip for a while though, if you have small hands like mine, you get used to this, so it's not a terrible problem. All that said, the grip itself feels just like the camera does (texture wise) and is sturdy just like the camera body. It's not just textured plastic, but an inlaid rubber grippy material just like the 7d. Plus, there's a little bar on the bottom of the grip to add either a hand strap or any other add-ons you please.

2. Functionality. 4.9 stars. Shutter button, scroll wheel, on/off switch (which simply disables the grip's buttons, but still provides power for the camera when in the OFF selection), zoom buttons, and AF-On button, all work perfectly with the camera.
