The best accessory I have bought!
MP
I recommend this grip for anyone who wants to get more out of this camera, and especially for those who find themselves shooting often in portrait orientation.
C. Franz
With two batteries as low as they can be with the grip on, the camera is feels a little better balanced with a heavy lens attached.

Ostensibly, the goal of a battery grip is to extend the amount of power you have for your camera. This grip does that, but simply buying an additional battery pack (which you'll have to do anyway if you want to use the grip that way) would do the same job, wouldn't it? It would - but the grip does a whole lot more:

This battery grip transforms an already excellent camera (the Canon 450D -- or Rebel XSi as it is called in the US) into a great one. First of all, the grip is excellently designed, and people with medium to large hands like me can get a much better handle on the camera which, although nicely shaped, was a bit to small for my liking. Now, with the grip, this is transformed into a natural fit (it now feels similar to the Nikon D70, which I thought to be more comfortable to hold than the 450D). The advantages of using this grip are many:

First of all, you have double the amount of battery power available (provided, of course, you purchase an additional battery pack. The package does not contain any batteries). The grip is designed to hold one or two of the 450D's battery packs at the same time. You do not have to use two packs. If you do, the packs do not have to carry the same amount of charge, and both packs are drained simultaneously. Even better, Canon has designed the grip to house a sled-like device they call 'magazine'. This magazine holds one or two battery packs. The nice thing, however, is that it comes with a second magazine designed to hold 6 AA batteries. In a pinch, this can bridge the gap until you can re-charge the packs. Also, you can replace the magazine with an adapter to connect your camera to a normal power outlet (this is not included in the package).

I already loved my Canon XSI, but this grip has really made the camera even more special.

Having the power of two LP-E5 batteries is a confidence booster to keep on shooting. If you're reading this, you already know how long one lasts, having two... I'd guess for my usage it'd be good for 1200 shots or more. Your mileage may vary on how much you use the LCD, flash, IS lenses, Live View, etc, but if one is good enough, two is great! I've never even seen the battery indicator go down a bar when shooting with this grip and two LP-E5's

For me, the battery power of one battery has always been more than enough. I often am in remote areas when I shoot, so the fact this grip will comes with a "sled" that accepts six AA batteries adds a comforting level of assurance that even if I run out of juice, a quick stop at any gas station in the country and I can pick up some AA's and get back to shooting if need be.

Where this accessory really shines is in balance, handling and control of the camera.
The XSI is very small and light for a DSLR. I often shoot with quite heavy lenses that make the camera feel VERY front heavy and off balance. With two batteries as low as they can be with the grip on, the camera is feels a little better balanced with a heavy lens attached.
Handling feels much better with the grip as well in the standard landscape orientation. No more is my right pinky just hanging out in space, it can now help grip the camera. I have medium sized hands and had found the standard XSI grip just a bit small for my liking, this fills in the gap and it feels quite natural.
Control is the key selling point. If you have felt uncomfortable shooting in portrait orientation, this is your relief.

This is a great item and a must have for the XSi. I got the XSi to pair with my 40d as a back-up and also for a small, compact dSLR for my fiance to use when helping me on photo shoots. The grip isnt necessary for everyone, but considering that just about every lens I use regularly is larger or the same size as the XSi, the grip definately makes me feel more comfortable. Adds more size to the camera with minimal weight. I am just waiting for Canon to release the battery magazines for it so that I can buy some spares. Also allows for my hands to fit comfortably on the camera instead of having to jam them in. Still doesnt feel right using the Canon 70-200 2.8L with this and the XSi though...

The added height and bulk of this "grip" give the camera a solid feel, while also giving you twice the power reserce. The included "AA" battery carriage is a great plus if your rechargables run dead.

The Rebel XSi without it's battery grip, for me, is like holding an undersized light weight DSLR. It just does not feel good in the hands of a person who likes something more substantial.
The Battery grip BG-E5 along with its new longer lasting battery system totally transforms this camera. It now feels comfortable, more substantial and more in tune with the other upper end cameras in canon's line up. This camera, is an ideal global travel camera along with the Canon G9, which I also own. They share the same SD card. The battery system is a different story however, but it is not inconvenient to take the two different battery chargers, as they are both light weight and very portable.
I have battery grips for all my canon cameras and they make a huge contribution in enabling long reliable shooting sessions.
This battery grip is not compatible with the former Rebel XTi but its grip houses the older batteries that are compatible with the G9. These two Rebels along with the G9 make for an affordable camera system that can give the user unlimited possibilities for creative photography.
An appropriate wide angle lens on one body and a flexible telephoto lens on the other, will allow quick and easy coverage of every situation.
If you are a Rebel XSi owner and are wanting a more substantial feel to the camera, then this is a must have item. I am very happy with the performance and the stream line appearance it gives to the XSi. The Battery grip BG-E5 is another first class canon product!
