Style Name: Canon 7D
Alright, I was skeptical about this after reading so many mixed reviews, but the draw of a battery grip that seemed to be well loaded and at a much cheaper price than Canon's...I couldn't resist.

Am I glad I got this? Definitely!

Okay, let's get things out and open: yes, this is NOT exactly like the Canon battery grip. Duh. It's not made by Canon and it doesn't cost $300. That said, however, this is an amazing "replica" that fits the bill just fine!

I was a little concerned when I got this because of reviews that said it was all plastic and cheap and that it would screw up my camera. My fears were quickly put to rest as soon as I opened the box.

I'm not one to dwell on packaging (if it comes in a brown paper bag but works great, who cares?) but the box for this was good, and the grip was wrapped in a bubble-wrap envelope. There's a protective cover-cap for the connector to keep the pins safe (and the cover isn't flimsy).

Taking the grip out, the first thing I was surprised to notice was that, yes, it DOES have a rubber grip. It's not as rough as the inlaid gripping Canon puts on its cameras, but it is definitely not just a textured part of the plastic. This is a great touch. There's a strap-hook/bar on the bottom, as well as a tripod mount so you can still use a tripod even with the grip installed.

According to the instructions you should always attach/detach the grip with the batteries removed, so that's what I've been doing.

Attaching the grip to the camera is easy. Just pop the battery out of your camera, and take off the battery cover door (there's a spring-clip to detach the door). The grip has a place in the handle where you can store the battery door, which is fantastic.

So I took a chance on this one - thanks to the other good review, and I'm glad I did. The box it came in looks a bit dated and I was scared to open it. However once I did I was happy with the quality. I'm used to Nikon grips - so this is definitely lighter and less 'heavy duty' feeling (as all Canon gear is). However testing it out feels solid and I'm actually appreciating the lightweight of canon gear after I add all my accessories and spend all day with it.

So! I've shot three shoots with it - one an all day 13 hour event - outside, inside, dirty trains - steadicam mounted, monopod mounted, shoulderbrace mounted and plain hand-gripped and this performed flawlessly. It REALLY makes the camera much more useable as well I should mention - it's one of those must haves. I compared it with my friend's actual canon grip and the only difference I noticed was his has the rubber grip along the battery compartment back as well as the front.

That's a hugely minor thing tho - and other than that you really can't tell the difference. Solid-wise - usefulness-wise - etc. - it's the same. So I'd say based on a few days of solid use out of it i'm impressed.

Hope that helps!

Style Name: Nikon D300/300S/D700
The comment from the reviewer above(Mr.Phillip) was so useful. I contemplated different brands myself but just looking at the product made me feel that its well made. So finally i got mine today and i cant be happier. Great fit and finish and your Nikon D300 recognizes the grip immediately and all the functions work great. I was wondering if the shutter release button and the scroll wheel will be as good as Nikon and yes it was.

I rarely buy anything else other than a Nikon, but i thought i will give this a try and i am glad i did. The Nikon MB-D10 is a great grip too, its made of magnesium alloy and rubberized coating just like the camera, hence its expensive.

If you are going to place your camera in rocks or if its going to take some beating in buses in africa or forests in the amazon, then buy the Nikon. If you are a casual user, who keeps his cameras in his bag all the time other than when its being used, then buy this one. You wont be dissapointed.

So... you're in need of a battery grip for your Canon EOS 7D. You'd like the vertical grip... or the extra shooting time... or the ability to use AA batteries if you're in a pinch. So, you hop on to amazon, type in your search, and up comes the list of battery grips. Having heard the general internet buzz that ~typically~ official Canon equipment is the "best", you check out the official Canon BG-E7 and your mouth hits the floor when you see that pristine price tag.

If you're like me... your mind goes "Wow... that's a lot of money! I don't want a piece of junk, but certainly for something that is the equivalent to a handle with buttons and one extra battery slot they could price that a little better!" After all... aren't we all "saving up" for our next piece of glass anyway? Every dollar you can save on something trivial brings that sexy "L" glass that much closer... but, where do you cut costs? What is worth it, and what will you be regretting later? I've got one thing here that will put your mind at rest.

Buy this grip instead. You won't be sorry.

I wasn't sure... but the reviews were all very positive so I pulled the trigger and ordered this. I'm happy to say, everybody was right. Time for a quick list!

What's hot?
* Solid, excellent fit and finish, feels very "high quality"
* Actual rubber (not textured plastic) around finger-grip area on side and front.
* Extra "finger ridge" helps the grip feel more secure (NOT found on the Canon grip)
* Hole for Tripod mount
* Enables you to use a (not supplied) after-market hand strap.
* Will let your camera run on single OR double camera batteries, or 6 AA's, like almost all battery grips.
