        Comments about BG-E13 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 6D:

        Have had my 6D for about a year now. Went through 2 after market grips and both failed. Both had problems with power cut outs and bad shutter lag. I then broke down and paid the big bucks for a Canon. Worth every cent. Works flawlessly and has never let me down. I guess I'm a slow learner, some after market products are just not worth the time and money and headaches. Furthermore the Canon grip fits perfectly on my camera, the others always had a slight space between the grip and camera bottom, which I'm sure is not good when it comes to the dust/moisture seal.... On this item I would highly recommend the Canon, its just worth it....

            Recommend this accesory. The weight of lens "L" need Camera + Grip, the conjunt is much equilibrated.Recomiendo enfáticamente este accesorio ya que la EOS 6D es una cámara relativamente pequeña para los lentes de la serie "L", en especial los zoom's de abertura 2.8f. El Grip ayuda a equilibrar el conjunto de cámara + lentes. Great!!

                Comments about BG-E13 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 6D:

                I love battery grips. I have very large hands, and there aren't too many cameras out there which don't feel small in my hands.

                The build seems rugged enough, although I'm mildly concerned with the release mechanism to get the battery sled out. It fits in the side as opposed to having the batteries inserted from the back. It's not bad, it's just new, so time will tell.

                Overall, I like it a lot.

                  The battery grip works great! It fits perfectly, and a very nifty feature is how you store the battery door in the grip, so you'll always have it. The main reason I bought this was to make shooting portraits easier, and this device really pays off. Highly recommended!

                    Canon Brand quality! - I am a pro photog, and have owned many of the EOS camera bodies, and alway got the grip... it's a must have if you shoot portraits for a living, esp hand held... but it's great for extending the record time for video on these DSLRS... Get it, you would love it - it makes your camera look like a 1D and people will take you more seriously too... I don't know about the off brands, but my work is too important to take chances on off brand stuff...Get it, you won't regret it - I can tell you that I shopped, and BH had it for about $ less than anyone (this is not a plug, but the truth) - I do shop around for price...BTW - I will say that Canon Brand Batteries are a must with this as well... don't use $ batteries with this unit... yeah,the good ones are $, but you get what you pay for, same as this unit. - buy a couple extra as well, then you always have a good set!

                      This is a must have. Two batteries are better than one. And when you have no good batteries, you can use AA's (only if you have this grip).

                            After buying many "off" brands over the years I finally bought a Canon model and will say it is very well made and fells much stronger then the other brands.

                                  using with Canon 6D. the two cartredges provide prolonged shooting time with one canon battery that came with the camera and then rechargable AA batteries ( I use the 15 minute rechargables). this gives me extended shooting hours. it is well made and provides a very sturdy hold in vertical orientation. B&H were very good at substituting this for the free accessories and I paid the difference (that's why I always like to buy B&H).
                                  I have not found any issues with this grip so far after using for less then a month.

                                    It adds additional power to the Canon 6D and improves the grip if you have large hands.
