Pairs perfectly with my Canon 70D. We shoot wedding films and having reliable power that can last the entire wedding ceremony is a must! We used this on a shoot last weekend, and started the day with bridal prep at 10am. The batteries lasted until 3:30pm... just as we were getting our last shots at the church and preparing to drive to the reception venue for cocktail hour. I was amazed at how long the batteries could last! Granted, we're using brand new batteries, so they still hold a long charge, but at least I didn't have to worry about stopping to change batteries half way during the ceremony. If you shoot video for any extended period of time, having this for a DSLR is a must! Yes, it adds weight, but it actually adds a really nice feel to the body and lens combination. Better balance, easier to hold, and of course, longer battery duration!

Quality build on this accessory grip, with 'extra' battery holder for the LPE-6 and for a set of double-A's. The grip is 'bulky' compared those I've used on Nikon and takes some adjustment. In the case of needing the extra juice on hand I'll use the grip, otherwise no

    A great addition to my Canon. It fits my hands just right and the ability to rotate the camera and have the controls in the same place is awesome. The extended time is very handy.

      I tried the Velo first. I really wanted it to work, but had to return. No substitute for Canon original product. Of course, the Canon fits like a glove and works perfectly.

        This does exactly what it is supposed to do. You cannot go wrong with Canon. It even shows how much charge is left on each battery.

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

        bought the battery grip for my 5d mk iii primary body about a year ago for the extra battery power but found that I appreciate the grips for composing portrait shots more than the added battery life. since, I have bought one for all three of my camera bodies for both extra battery and the vertical oriented controls and grip.

            I haven't taken this battery grip off my 70D since I put it on. I absolutely love it and have gotten used to the feel of it so much that the camera body alone feels very small and harder to get a grasp on anymore. Simple to install, doesn't add much extra weight, and you get longer battery life and more power.

            I haven't tried the extra magazine for use with AA batteries yet so i can't really comment on that. It does come with a nice bag to store it in though.

                  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.

                  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.

                  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.

                          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.
