It's a great grip in itself. I did not feel at one point that it's a 3rd party product ( I have used Zeikos vertical grip for my 7D , and therefore know how a knock-off 3rd party product feels) . The rubberized grip feels solid in the hands, and it hugs on to the product very well, therefore there is no wobbling of any kind. I was happy with the touch and feel of the buttons too.

Despite these good things, I eventually ended up returning it because the shape (contours) of the grip is not the same as Canon's BG-E11 and therefore the L-plates of Kirk/RRS (which are designed for original Canon BG-E11) will not fit. I would have been still fine if it was a slight misfit, but the battery compartment could not be opened at all with the L-plate. Everytime the battery compartment needs to be opened, the L-plate has to be removed and screwed in again.

Works as advertized. Feels good in hands. The price is much better than the original one, which by the way didn't work upon arrival. I didn't check all 5 stars, because it looks like the camera is using more power than with one battery. During the recent party I did about 100-150 shoots. Not much. However the battery metter showed that only about 59% was left on each battery??!! I'll check on this issue and update later.

7/20/2012.. The camera with grip was sitting in the bag without use for about two weeks. Both batteries were fully charged. After two weeks there is no charge left in both battreies. This is unacceptable. I'm going to return this grip.

What can I say, price was right. Works - kinda. Uses two batteries, but I've had problems with non Canon brand batteries.
Not sure if that's related to this.

IT does allow time lapse. I've set it to shoot the night sky rotating. Works well for that. HOWEVER the data/time info doesn't seem to save WEIRD!? removing the camera batteries seems to make the display go dead and it looses its settings.

FEELS cheap, but hasn't broken. I would recommend it for the LOW PRICE, but it has some issues.... It's not a Canon grip, but not 5X more in cost either. It is what it is... cheap and will allow grip functions and time lapse shooting.

Im a loyal Canon user, an Ive used Canon grips as well as 3rd party grips, and I must say this is the best third party grip Ive used thus far. Just to be fair I left the camera on an left the battery grip on, No problems, Then I left the camera off an turned the grip off, No Problem. You Must Follow the in box directions. Great Packaging, Great Shipping Time, Great Seller. I will Order From Again.

Purchased this for my 5DMK3 and it works beautifully. The battery input is slightly different from previous versions and makes a bit more difficult to replace batteries quickly but the build quality and feel make up for that. If you didn't tell anyone it wasn't a canon accessory I don't think they would know. Definitely worth the purchase.

I have used this grip now for two weddings, and it rocks. With my mark ii grip the camera controls tends to fall asleep until you change settings with the grip, however the Pixel grip on my mark iii has no issues there. The reason I gave a 4 star and not 5 is because of the very very soft touch shutter button. When I have the camera on my side, with the slightest bounce it is taking photos of my feet :) Other than that I highly recommend this grip. Don't be fooled by the low price, it is by no means of cheap quality.

I had been told that the Canon grip has the same metal interior as the 5D Mk 3 body. The floor of the Pixel grip has a metal plate that appears to extended all the way across the grip, giving a stronger base to attach the tripod to, unlike other after market grips that I have seen. The color and the grip material on the one that I received is almost a perfect match. All the remote buttons work perfectly. For the price it is a good bargain.

First of all, it causes the screen on my camera to dim. The only fix is to turn the camera off, wait a few seconds and turn it back on again. Secondly, the toggle button broke off, at about the nine month point. Very inconvenient not to have when taking vertical shots.

My wife also has a 5d Mark III. Using the grip caused an error, preventing camera. Fortunately, her camera was under warranty and she was able to have it repaired, for free. She no longer uses the grip.
