Canon BG-E18 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon BG-E18 Battery Grip is designed for use with the Canon EOS Rebel T6i and T6s DSLR Cameras. When installed, it can accommodate one or two rechargeable LP-E17 batteries and creates a greater surface area than what is provided by an EOS Rebel T6i or T6s alone. Aside from being able to double available battery capacity and decreasing the potential for a connected camera to fall out of hand, the BG-E18 Battery Grip, with its integrated shutter release button, offers the ability to hold and trigger either an EOS Rebel T6i or T6s in the vertical shooting position without having to turn one's wrist. This increases overall comfort and the ability to capture images in the desired orientation.

This battery grip does not support a battery magazine for AA batteries, or an AC adapter kit.

    Canon BG-E18 reviews

    BG-E18 Battery Grip for EOS Rebel T6i & T6s is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great add on, a must have I usually take pictures while traveling, hiking or doing some other activity in a number of different lighting conditions (hikes in the Pacific Northwest's forests can be dark). Carrying a tripod or monopod is an inconvenience, so I rely on holding a good grip on the camera. I also rely on the wheel and other controls by the shutter button. This grip allows me to use the camera in the vertical position while keeping all the controls in the same position relative to my trigger finger, making it very easy to shoot in both landscape and vertical positions. The double battery is a bonus since it adds autonomy. The only problem is that it blocks the camera's NFC sensor. Which is a minor annoyance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item but missing an important feature Bought this for my T6s and love the ability to double the battery life of the camera and, most importantly, shoot vertically without awkward hand positions. I had a gripped XSI years ago and the grip had a tray allowing users to power the camera using 6xAA batteries, and several Canon Grips still have that feature (the ability to use AA batteries in the grip). I am not sure why Canon decided to skip that feature in this unit but its an important feature, specially for owners of the entry level T6s who may not want to spend an additional $ on a couple more Canon Batteries. Still a great item though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Indispensable Accessory I had a battery grip with my T4i and knew that when I upgraded my camera I had to make sure that I had a new battery grip for it also. This grip allows you to hold the camera vertically and take pictures without contorting your hands into funky angles by putting the essential buttons on the grip itself. The other huge benefit is the dual battery capabilities giving you a huge amount of use time. The reason I only gave it four stars and not five is that with this new grip you do not get the AA battery pack like previous grips (on the off chance you do use up both batteries).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If your serious........ If you are serious about getting the most out of your Canon, (a Rebel T6i in this case), you could hardly do better than investing in the battery grip. I purchased this in advance of a three day tour of the Reno Air Races. It involved a lot of shooting stills and video with the camera on for long stretches. The extra battery power is an obvious advantage when shooting in the field, but the extra heft and grip made shooting video easier generally. I got nearly two full days of shooting with the grip before the charge dropped to unusable levels. If you are shooting events or anticipate shooting where switching out a low battery is not convenient or awkward, this is the solution. And when it makes for too cumbersome a unit with it's extra mass, simply switch back to the single cell. This was an excellent investment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this grip! I got this about ten days ago and it has made my photography better! The grip allows me to turn my camera on axis! The back button focus and additional trigger allows for greater results! It's well balanced and having two batteries mean less time changing out batteries! It does ad some weight but it feels better balanced in my hand then with out it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great addition I just bought the new T6s Camera and decided to get this also. It does make the camera a little heavier but it is going to let me take steadier photos for a lot longer with the double battery power. The controls right on the grip makes it real easy to operate with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I should have bought this grip a long time ago! I love how it looks on my T6i and the grip feels so GOOD!!! If your camera doesn't have a grip, I highly recommend getting one! Very quick shipping! In the future, I will come back to buy more camera gear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stability The BG-E18 battery grip for the T6i & T6 adds bulk to the body which gives it something more to hang on too. It's comfortable to grip and adds that extra stability to the body while shooting. Best investment for the money.
