Product Highlights
  • Vertical Shutter Release
  • Built-In Infrared Receiver
  • Uses Rechargeable Li-Ion/AA Batteries

The Hahnel HC-5D Mark II Pro Battery Grip for Canon EOS 5D Mark II Cameras is an easy way to double your shooting time and get a better grip while shooting in portrait orientation. This professional battery grip operates on 1 or 2 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries or 6x rechargeable Ni-MH or alkaline AA batteries for much longer shooting sessions, without having to stop to change or replace batteries. The grip attaches securely to the camera body and there's a vertical firing release with a lock, so shooting verticals is as easy as shooting horizontals.

This grip features a built-in infrared receiver that allows remote shooting within a range of up to 32-39' (10-12 m). The remote control transmitter provides autofocus before shutter release and continuous shutter release or bulb function for as long as the button remains pressed. Built-in power management regulates the power output and detects use of Li-ion or AA batteries automatically. Batteries are not included.

        Comments about hahnel HC-5D Mark II Pro Battery Grip for Canon EOS 5D Mark II Cameras:

        -The grip will work with a single battery, so having two batteries is not a requirement.
        -The shutter trigger feels like the original shutter on the rebel series. You can feel two distinct levels for focus and for shutter.
        -Everything feels solid on this battery grip. it doesn't seem like it would come off the camera or break easily.
        -The remote trigger does not work as well as it could - the infrared sensor is placed in a way that the battery grip "does not see" the signal, leaving it with a very narrow angle of view. You have to be straight in front of the camera for it to work. While testing, firing the remote often triggered the camera for two pictures. This can be annoying using flashes but can be worked around by setting the camera on the 2 second delay setting.

          I bought it for my girlfriends camera and she says its helps balance it out with the big lens that she uses and can shoot for longer duration.
