Product Description


The Canon BG-E9 Battery Grip holds up to two LP-E6 battery packs or six AA Batteries to offer double-length shooting time. The vertical shutter release makes shooting with the camera in a vertical position just as comfortable as shooting horizontally.

Customer Reviews

It makes the camera much more comfortable to hold and use.

The battery grip appears to be made of the same rubber and plastic as the EOS 60D, so the two pair up very nicely. My kit lens (18-135mm) causes the whole unit to lean forward slightly when sitting on the table. I am sure the stability would vary depending on the weight of your lens.

I seriously considered purchasing a 3rd party battery grip, but I kept coming across so many bad reviews ("doesn't function properly," "smells bad," "rubber is peeling off," etc.)

When I first inserted the batteries into the BG-E9's tray and attached the grip to my 60D, one of the batteries was not recognized. After removing the batteries and reinserting them, the camera recognized both batteries. The extra tray for 6-AA batteries is a nice feature. However, I read that the 6-AA tray is to be used under emergency situations, not on a regular basis. There is even a nice bag for whichever tray you are not currently using.

Supposedly you can get up to 800 shots per battery (when not using "Live View").

You get what you pay for. Canon's stuff isn't cheap, but it works great!

BOOK RECOMMENDATION
For someone new to DSLRs, like me, I would highly recommend David Busch's book David Busch's Canon EOS 60D Guide to Digital SLR Photography, that is if you own a Canon 60D. It has been VERY helpful to me.

UPDATE - 11/06/2011
I am not sure where I read the stats about battery life. Maybe you get 800 shots per battery when you ARE using "Live View." Recently I took about 7,000 shots at a 2 day volleyball and soccer tournament. I charged both Canon batteries before the tournament. Both batteries still had close to 50% juice left after all those shots. Wow!

Yes it adds extra weight but balances the camera out nicely with long tele lens. Combine this unit with the Power2000 LP-E6 replacement batteries and you can easily shoot 500+ images without having to recharge. Extra nice option is the AA battery carrier included so you always have a back-up.

Make sure you attach your camera strap to the bottom of the grip instead of leaving it on the right side of the camera. It stays out of your way when attached to the bottom of the grip PLUS it lets the camera hang lens down which is a nice thing.

I must say, this product is fantastic!! You pay for QUALITY. Very rugged & feels it was built to last!
It does add a bit of weight to it, but for me, it balances the whole camera out especially if you have a huge telephoto lens on there.
After using it for quite a while, you will get used to the weight and just holding makes you feel like the camera is more solid!

It comes with 2 magazines. One of which holds 2 LP-E6 batteries and the other holding 4 AA batteries. Also comes with a little pouch for holding the other magazine while the other is in use!

I'm glad I purchased it. And I hope this review helps you decide!

The 60D is the second camera I have used a battery grip on. The first was the Canon T2i and the inexpensive grip that I bought worked fine. When I got the 60D, I immediately bought another inexpensive grip for it. Looked good, fit good, recognized the batteries, and worked fine at first. But then even newly charged batteries would be completely discharged in a couple of days. I assumed there must be something wrong with the camera and made arrangements to send it back. Fortunately, however, before doing so I decided to make some tests. I also did research on the internet and discovered this was a common problem with knockoff battery grips. I then checked the comments of users for all the knockoffs sold by Amazon and found that for each one or two purchasers reported having a problem exactly like what I was experiencing.

Also during my internet research I found reports from testers not connected with Canon that said that the only battery grip never having this problem was the Cannon grip.

Yes, the odds were good that had I bought another knockoff that it would have worked fine, but I did not want to take that chance.

It is also true that since you get more than 1000 shots with the battery for the 60D that you could easily do without the second battery. But I like the grip because it balances the camera very nicely with my zoom lens, and also makes it easier for me to hold.

So I bought the Canon grip and the problem that was so troubling to me is a thing of the past. The peace of mind I now have is worth the extra money I paid to get the genuine Canon grip.

Having used grip/auto-winders on my 35mm cameras for 30 years and a battery grip on my Canon 10D for the past 8 when it came time to replace the 10D I had to have this grip for my new 60D. The grip houses 2 batteries and that extra life is essential for all day shoots without having to swap out. The great thing about the BG-E9 is it comes with a separate tray for AA batteries should your rechargeable Li-Ions run dry. If you shoot video, uses lenses with Image Stabilization or use the screen a lot, you will chew through power. I rarely run out of juice in both batteries but it's happened once or twice in 8 years. The AA option would have been a great option on those days.

Ergonomically a camera without a grip just feels awkward in my hands, just too light and too small. The grip helps hold steady during longer exposure settings and helps balance out longer/heavier lenses. Canon improved the design between my 10D's grip and this one. The BG-E9 is even more comfortable to hold.

Vertical holding is greatly enhanced by a second set of controls at your fingertips.

Finally, and this is just looks... a grip makes your consumer or prosumer grade DSLR look like the 1D series cameras...minus the extra $3500 ;-)
