The BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D from Vello is a battery grip designed for use specifically with the Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera, and accepts one or two Canon LP-E6 batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Moreover, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery. The BG-C10 can also run off of 6 AA batteries, when using the included AA battery tray.

The design of the grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. To facilitate shooting when held vertically, the BG-C10 comes with a vertical shutter release button, as well as AF control buttons, and a main dial. The BG-C10 is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling, and a tripod socket to mount your camera directly to a tripod or mounting plate. The grip also includes a drawstring pouch to protect whichever battery holder is not in use.

The BG-C10 will not work with Duracell brand alkaline batteries.

      This grip is an excellent accessory indispensable for the Canon 70D.
      It works as well as the grip of the canon that costs twice the price.

      Comments about Vello BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D DSLR Camera:

      In my photography I would forget to take pictures in portrait orientation because it felt uncomfortable and unnatural. I decided to buy a battery grip because I thought it would encourage me to take pictures in portrait orientation. It's really convenient to rotate the camera and just continue taking pictures like I normally would, in fact I like holding the camera by the batter grip more than holding by the camera its self.

      I was initially skeptical of buying a third party accessory because I thought it would be poorly made, but that definitely hasn't been the case. The Vello grip is really well made and the added buttons function and are oriented almost exactly the same way the buttons on the camera are.

      If you want to purchase an accessory that will improve the function of your camera and make it easier to use I would definitely recommend getting a battery grip. In my experience the Vello grip works just as well as a Canon brand grip.

      Comments about Vello BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D DSLR Camera:

      I bought this to increase my shoot time and I like it because I can use AA batteries in a pinch. It does ad some weight to your camera especially with AAs, but that is to be expected.

          Comments about Vello BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D DSLR Camera:

          This is a great grip for both the extra controls when shooting vertically but also the added bonus of the additional power especially when shooting video. I think every DSLR is better with a grip like this. This was easy to add on to the 70D and the quality makes it look like a simple extension to the camera.

            Comments about Vello BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D DSLR Camera:

            Same product as the name brand at less than half the cost. Just received, so it has not had much field use yet, but will sure be a big help when the batteries wear out in the cold weather to allow the use of regular AA batteries. Even comes with a nice cloth bag for the holder when not using the AA batteries.

                The Vello Battery Grip does exactly what it is supposed to do and looks identical to my Canon 70D camera. I love it and paid a great price for it! I recommend anyone to get it as well. Though there are many things that are best to just stick the factory resources, many 3rd party equipment do the job just as well and Vello steps it up to ensure that.

                This grip is a perfect match and fit for the 70D. In addition to the savings over the Canon grip, this grip comes with a second magazine that will hold six AA cells if needed in a "crisis" situation. The grip does add some extra weight and bulk to the camera overall, but having the extra battery power is worth it.

                  Vello Canon 70D battery grip

                  By OHsilver20

                  from Arkansas

                  Comments about Vello BG-C10 Battery Grip for Canon 70D DSLR Camera:

                  I really like this battery grip. Having a battery grip makes taking vertical shots much much easier, but the canon one is around double the price of this one, so a little pricey for the only important tangible difference being name brand versus 3rd party and slightly cheaper plastics. It stills feels very solid. I would recommend it.
