Vello BG-C12 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for the Canon 7D Mark II, the BG-C12 Battery Grip from Vello holds one or two LP-E6 batteries, effectively doubling your camera's shooting time. The grip also comes with a tray to hold six AA batteries (rechargeable batteries recommended).

The BG-C12 adds comfort and stability when shooting in the portrait orientation, and it provides an alternate shutter button, AF start, AF point selection, AE lock/FE lock, and multi-function buttons. A multi-controller and a main dial are also located on the grip, adding convenience when shooting vertically. It is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip and firm curvature to further improve handling. The grip screws into the camera's tripod mount, and it has another tripod mount on its bottom for attaching to a camera support.

A control-lock switch can deactivate all of the grip's controls when they aren't needed.
A metal mount allows you to attach a camera strap to the BG-C12.
The BG-C12 is compatible with the Canon ACK-E6 AC Adapter Kit, allowing the camera to be powered for long periods of time as needed when shooting star trails or time-lapse photography.
A compartment on the grip stores your camera's battery door to prevent loss.

    Vello BG-C12 reviews

    BG-C12 Battery Grip for Canon 7D Mark II is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG-C12 Grip Received it on Tuesday and shot two high school soccer games. Grip works as expected, and reads battery % from Canon LP-E6N and third party Wasabi LP-E6 batteries. It also supported mixing the Canon and third party batteries. Adds a bit of weight and heft to the body, but that is to be expected. The only reason I gave it four stars is there is a slight gap (about 1/16 - 1/32) between the grip and the body when attached - not a lot but enough to see light coming through when you look. I would think moisture might be a problem when shooting in inclement weather.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I have only used this grip a couple of times since I received it a short time ago but because it is a new product I wanted to do a quick review for others that might be thinking about buying it. It appears to be very well made. The grip fits my 7d Mark ii perfectly. I tried it with two batteries one LP-E6 and one LP-E6N. The grip worked perfectly with both batteries and allowed me to check the status of both with the 7d Mark ii. All of the buttons on the grip worked as advertised and I found it very easy to operate. If found it very easy to change my focus point quickly using the controls on the grip and the back button focus worked perfectly. I do mostly wildlife photography and am looking forward to using this grip in the field.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value - Solid This is my second Vello grip and so far I'm thrilled with them. The build quality is excellent, they have all the functions of the OEM grip and are half the cost. I'm not sure about durability as my oldest one is only 6 months old, BUT I've had Canon grips go bad on me in the past, so I don't see that there is a down side to using this battery grip. I love being able to use 2 batteries and having the vertical shutter release and controls.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! Does everything the OEM grip does - build quality is solid. There is a slight 1/16 or so gap between the body and grip - not visible unless you look but wondering if moisture could get in if caught shooting in inclement weather. Overall, very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly I couldn't wait for this grip to be available. I missed not being able to quickly switch from portrait to landscape and have all the important controls literally at my fingertips. But I didn't want to pay the Canon price. I've used the Vello grips on other cameras and they've worked great. So does this one. The only improvement I could suggest is that the area where your thumb rests could be molded to be a little more comfortable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as good as the real thing Getting the battery grip for my Canon 7D mark II at half price sounded great, so I bit. When it arrived it looked the same, felt the same, but first time using in the field the thumb button popped off (and got lost in the grass), and the communication between the grip and the camera seemed.... off, inconsistent. So I returned it, got the Canon one, and everything has worked solidly since.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aftermarket Battery Grip Like everyone I was skeptical about an aftermarket grip. Heck even my other canon grips have given me problems. This grip is well worth the money. I would buy it every time at half the price of the Canon. Lots of positives I could list and no real negatives unless it would be the way you load in the batteries. That is only because of being used to another way from the old Canon grips. Not really an issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory Fit and feel is great. Gives a wider grip surface fitting the hand better in both landscape and portrait orientatons. Provides all the same controls as the mire expensive canon model. As always great service and delivery from B&H.
