This review is from: Neewer® Professional Battery Grip for Canon EOS 20D/30D/40D/50D D-SLR BG-E2N (Electronics)
When I first found this grip on Amazon, I loved the reviews and the price. It is true - you get what you pay for.
This grip worked great for about two months of very light use. Then on the day of a wedding I was scheduled to be the solo photographer, it started not firing from the grip's shutter button in the middle of wedding party photos. Imagine how many times I had the ringbearer actually behaving and then I had to press the shutter button rapidly to try and catch that smile. It wasn't pretty, and took me a bit to realize that it wasn't the camera but the grip's shutter button that was acting up. Then at the reception as the DJ is calling the lovely couple to the floor for their first dance, the camera dies completely, won't turn on - nothing. Luckily I had my backup and could use it until I figured out that the grip had gone kaput on me. Don't waste your time, money, or anxiety on this grip -get something better.
