  • 1Description

Dedicated to the EOS 7D Mark II DSLR, the BG-E16 Battery Grip from Canon offers both enhanced handling capabilities as well as extended battery life. It accepts two LP-E6 lithium-ion battery packs to increase the camera's battery life or, alternatively, AA batteries can be used in conjunction with the included BGM-E16 Battery Magazine. Additionally, the grip is also compatible with the optional ACK-E16 AC Adapter Kit for continuous power.

The design of the grip improves shooting in the vertical orientation and also provides an overall more ergonomic structure for holding the 7D Mark II. A second shutter release button, main dial, multi-controller, AF point selection button, AE/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button are all integrated into the grip for improved and versatile handling.

    Canon BG-E16 reviews

    BG-E16 Battery Grip for EOS 7D Mark II is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 181.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grip Having always shot with a grip since film days with my Elan IIe, my 7D MkII just did not feel right without the grip, so within days of getting the camera, I ordered the grip. This is a great grip. Solid build quality to match the camera, main dial, multi-controller, AF point button, AE/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button plus the shutter button. That's a lot of functional easy to reach stuff in there. While it is a little pricey, it is an investment well worth it. Don't waste your time with the cheap plastic knockoffs, this is the grip you want.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First OEM Grip I've had many EOS bodies and loved using a grip with them, not just for the extra battery but for the handling as well. I don't have large hands so I am always worried how the grip will fit and feel. All the past grips I've had were aftermarket third party and I never had an issue. However with the 7DMK2 I did some reading and some suggested to go with OEM because of the weather sealed body on the 7DMK2. I'm not sorry I spent the extra money! The grip feels strong, sturdy and comfortable. The batteries pop in and out with ease, the controls are very ergonomic. There's really not much more to say, it's simple. It's worth the money for your 7DMK2, don't put a cheap grip on that body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grip I fell in love with the idea of a battery grip years ago on my EOS 3 35mm SLR and have ordered one for every EOS digital camera I've owned. This latest is the best hands down. It's made of magnesium like the 7D2 body, so you don't have to worry about fragility. I especially like the battery compartment and the way it slides in and out instead of having doors that flap down. The backup holder so you can use AA batteries is great; if you travel you might not be able to keep your LiOn batteries charged but you can find AAs anywhere in the world. With a SLR mass dampens vibration. The battery grip, with a couple of batteries in it, adds useful mass as well as improving the ergonomics when shooting in portrait orientation, something I do a lot of. If you like to use L brackets you won't be able to use the grip unless you can find a custom bracket to fit around the grip, but that's the only downside I can think of. AFterall, if weight bothers you the 7D2 is probably not a good choice in the first place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than before I've boought third party products before and was always disappointed with their preformance over time. I decided to pay the exaggerated price for this grip. It is much improved over the original 7D grip. For the money Canon could have made it more compact so it felt like the grip on a 1D. It is too early to tell if I wasted money. It looks, assembles and has the exact same parts as other companies grips. The parts may actually be interchangeable. I'm recommending this grip over the others because their may be some electronic part I'm not aware of that the others are missing and when I really need it, it will be there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from el mejor accesorio / the best accessory Tener bateria extra es la consigna de un battery grip y que ademas te de la opcin de botones extras es un regalo que uno recibe con mucho entusiasmo.Es el mejor accesorio para no perder tiempo cambiando batera a mitad de la produccin (foto o video) ademas de darte energa para los disparos en rfaga y no te detengas.You have extra battery is the motto of a battery grip, and that in addition to buttons option extras is a gift received with much enthusiasm.It is the best accessory for not wasting time changing battery halfway through production (photo or video) as well as give you energy for the shooting burst and don't stop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but,........ I have always liked Canon's battery grips but this new grip for the 7D Mark II has me wondering who designed the battery compartment. It was much easier to access and replace the batteries on the 7D, why did they move the access point to the side. Also, I think over time the twist release on the side will probably wear out or break. Other than that I like this grip!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why would you not?!?!?! Portriats......much nicer. Top right 3 buttons duplicated. Multi controler duplicated. AF point selector is a button. One big battery slot that holds battery tray that holds dual batteries. Battery tray loads from side like 1D series. Bottom of the grip has slot for side hand strap. Shutter button, control wheel, and M-Fn button are all there too. The grip has a nice girth to it along with a finger notch and thumb ledge. The notch and ledge greatly improves the feel in portriat orientation. The battery info will disply seperatly. Included is an additional tray that uses 6 AA batteries. There is also a bag to store the extra tray in. The grip is is made with the same metal frame as the camera body. Great balance with 70-200 2.8 IS attached. 4 stars only due to cost of the grip.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not What It Could Have Been I'm use to the grip for the 5D MKll which has a simple flop down door to load two LP6E Batteries. The Grip for the 7D Markll has a slide out drawn to place the LP6E Batteries in. From a repetitive design and use perspective, this could be a problem down the road. Would have preferred the same style as the 5D MKll grip. Maybe the knockoffs will wise up to this! I would recommend people wait and see what else is offered when the secondary market offers their models.
