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

    This battery grip is top quality and installs with great ease. It has been a huge asset to my longer sessions such as football games, weddings etc. I love the fact that it not only has backup for 2 LP batteries but my rechargeables as well should I exhaust the first two.

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

    As long as I have owned an SLR/DSLR, I have always bought the factory grip made for it.The vertical release is handy for portrait oriented shots. I like having to spread my right fingers over the right camera body onto the grip. It helps me to steady the camera more for hand held shots. This is especially helpful when using a heavy and/or long lens.Having 2 battery bays in the grip is great for extended shooting.The grip does make the camera more bulky but I have gotten accustomed to it. The tradeoff is worth it.

    Great Choice

    By R1Rob

    from Phoenix AZ

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

    The Canon Battery grip is a great addition to my 70D. It allows the camera to be better balanced in my hands with the weight of a longer lens or flash unit and the additional functionality of the increased battery capacity and controls for portrait orientated shots is great. Another surprise is that it will run the camera on just one of the E6 batteries even though it holds two. Converting to AA batteries gives me more power options for extended remote shooting. Great fit, finish and functionality I've grown to expect from Canon products.

      This is the first grip I've used and I am surprised at how much more stability and feel I get with it attached. The vertical controls are great too!

            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.

                  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.

                      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.

                          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
