    felt lost without it

    My old one took a bath in the Dead River and the camera just didnt feel right without the grip, and the knowledge of not having to worry about running out of power.

    The grip is really nice for events, and sports photography. The construction is a little flimsy and doesn't feel completely secure. The battery door doesn't like to open for me. The other issue I have had with the Vello battery grips I have is the wheel to change the shutter speed (when in manual mode) doesnt tend to work on occasion which gets frustrating during events. This issue has happened 5 times in the last month, so Ive stopped using the grip. When it did work consistently it was really nice. But the inability for me not to use the shutter speed dial is the reason i gave this grip 3 stars.

      I've been using this grip for over 2 years and have had NO problems whatsoever. I may just buy another one for my backup 7D as well.
      Additionally, I have always had good experiences with Vello products.

          I got this battery grip for my Canon 7D and it's definitely worth the purchase for all of us out here filming or taking photos and don't want to run out of battery life. What I like about this battery is that is nice and rugged and fits perfect with my Canon 7D.

            Kinda feels cheap with the door that doesn't fit snug but then it was half the price of the OEM.

                            Looks and feels pretty much like the Canon model. Only issue is if you're using a flash bracket mounted on the left it will be underneath when you turn to take a portrait shot and the bracket will be in the way of the shutter release if you mount it on the right.

                                Very happy, full featured and less than half the price of the full Canon name brand. Worked will for several projects in the past few weeks. Definately doubles the perceived batterly life without having to change out. Been on two batteries doing two video projects and a buch of stills the whole time.

                                All the extra controls are very handy.

                                    I really liek the fact that the brand name is on the bottom. I am a 'brand name' guy. I like to have the brand name the same. In this case I did not see the reason in buying the official grip at a higher price. It blends in well and it built sturdy.

                                    The grip is really nice for events, and sports photography. The construction is a little flimsy and doesn't feel completely secure. The battery door doesn't like to open for me. The other issue I have had with the Vello battery grips I have is the wheel to change the shutter speed (when in manual mode) doesnt tend to work on occasion which gets frustrating during events. This issue has happened 5 times in the last month, so Ive stopped using the grip. When it did work consistently it was really nice. But the inability for me not to use the shutter speed dial is the reason i gave this grip 3 stars.

                                      Love it ! adding life battery to the camera. This has been a great buy! It also contains shutter button and zoom button that are useful for when one turns the camera on its side to take pictures, this way now the shutter button from the battery grip will be on top and it makes for a much easier grab and shoot.
