      Comments about BG-E14 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 70D:

      I tried to get away with a cheaper 3rd party grip but had some issues with it. I finally broke down and paid the extra money for the Canon grip and I couldn`t be happier. Everything about it is just better. The improvement in quality (over the 3rd party grip) is apparent in every way.

        I do a lot of sports and landscape photography. So far, I love having controls on the battery grip and the longer battery life.

            Fit and ergonomics with this grip are very good. Appearance ditto.

            The only downside I can see is the added weight, which was anticipated.

            I would recommend this grip to a friend.

                Comments about BG-E14 Battery Grip for Canon EOS 70D:

                I just puchased the BG-E14 battery grip for my 70D and I love it. Yes, the extended batter life is a great highlight, one thing I hadn't considered was the added ease of handling. I have neurological problems with my hands, which makes holding things difficult at times. The added weight and size of this grip are a lifesaver.

                This grip is improved over previous designs I was using. It's more weathertight and ergonomic and the battery door is smaller and locks better.

                    Perfect fit. The dual batteries allow me to shoot an entire project with out running out of power. The controls are right at my finger tips.

                    Some added weight but well worth it.

                    A little expensive.

                      When I bought the 70D,I was hoping to be able to use the battery grip off the 60D. Turns out the frame of the 70D is slightly smaller to the 60D and I had to buy the BG-E14 grip to fit the 70D. The one bonus, the battery trays from the 60D fit inside the BG-E14. Now I have extra trays to load up with batteries.

                          the battery grip for my Canon EOS 7D. It's lightweight and adds the perfect amount of battery life, especially for using this camera for videos. I would recommend this for anyone who wants the extra life for either pics or video. It was easy to install and the grip gives extra hold onto the camera. Also, B&H had the best price for this product. Ordering was a piece of cake and delivery was right on time. I can't find anything negative to say about the product or B&H

                            No complaints about this item so far. It is very comfortable to hold and gives me a much better grip on the camera than I would otherwise have. If I had a really heavy lens, I would definitely see this as a must-have accessory because it makes the whole body more substantial and sturdy. I like it a lot. There is only one criticism I have, and that concerns mounting it on a tripod. I have a Manfrotto tripod and it is impossible to mount the tripod plate on the camera in the right balanced position without obstructing the knob you have to turn to tighten the plate on the tripod head. You have to mount the plate in a strange way in order to do that, and it feels unnatural. I would advise anyone wishing to use this battery grip with a tripod (i.e, DSLR videographers) to make sure you get a tripod that fits this camera with the battery grip. Otherwise you should just get used to changing batteries more often. Other than that, no complaints.

                              I use battery grips on all of my cameras basically for balance and convenience. Like all of other Canon Grips, this one is great.

                                I will not shoot a camera that does not have a vertical grip. This vertical grip is just what it says it is, a vertical grip with controls on the grip. One thing I did notice is that canon has put some thought into this grip. There are a couple of really cool features that not all vertical grips have. One is the holder for the battery door. I think including this was an ingenious idea. The other really nice feature is being able to turn the battery grip off when not in use, saves from changing settins without reallizing it.

                                  As has been my experience with all of my Canon gear, this works perfectly. I would never consider buying a serious camera without having hte increased battery capacity and vertical controls.
