Top Customer Reviews
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!
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!
The grip is further equipped with an easy to use locking mechanism as well as a set of controls similar to those that appear on the top right corner of the camera when held in landscape attitude. These additional controls, shutter release, jog wheel, AF ON, etc, are located on the lower right of the grip and are oriented so that in portrait mode, they will feel exactly like the top right controls do in landscape
I have been using these grips for so long now that if I pick up someone else's camera it feels a bit awkward in my hand.
While it does add about a third more weight to the camera, you will find that it is well designed and will dramatically increase your shooting time and the versatility of the camera. I would not buy another Camera without buying a grip to go with it.
However, the big plus is the better feel and grip you get with this. And especially so on vertical shots. Well worth the money.
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.
