Does what it needs to do

By Jay

Grip makes holding the camera super easy, and of course it's great to have double the battery life. The only thing to perhaps think twice about is fitting your assembled rig into a camera bag, especially if you have other gear - the added grip can make things a little awkward to fit. There are endless options for bags out there, so a solution more than likely can be found, it's just something to consider.

I had thought about getting the cheaper, non-Canon version but I am sure I made the right choice. All connections are perfect with the plug-in battery and it is very easy to use with the standard batteries. There are many times when I need to have the camera on a tripod without moving for a long period of time to preserve my Photoshop changes on the initial shot. This allows me to not stress over waiting for client changes or approval. A quality product from Canon. Go with the real deal.

Do NOT like the battery tray

For me a dual battery grip is a must have and for my previous 5D (a mark III) I bought the Vello BG-C9 because it was less expensive and I'll be honest; it worked GREAT. This time, I decided to go with the Canon version. It works fine so far, but I am NOT impressed with the battery tray. It's flimsy and feels like it would snap in two if torqued the wrong way. Given the cost of this grip, I really expected something a little more rugged feeling. Time will tell. I'm giving it four stars for now because it works great and I am a loyal Canon fan but may revise this in the future to give it the full 5 stars or reduce the rating based on how things go.

Solid, it does the job

By Nyki

Expands battery capacity, durable, does the job. However, the way the batteries have to be laid in the slot flat and slid forward to lock is not ideal. Similarly, there is an eject button you have to press before sliding the battery out. I prefer the old 6D Mark II and 6D battery grips, where the batteries are popped in at an angle and ejected at an angle vs. needing a button.

Never run out of power with this battery grip

I took the mail boat out of Clarkston, Washington through Hells Canyon. A once in a lifetime experience. We got to the 1st stop and i went to shoot some pictures and had a dead battery. With this dual battery grip that would not happen. You'll never run out of power again.

So far - excellent!!

Only used it once so far but after 5 hours of continuous use and 1900 pics later I still had 2 bars. Very happy about this.

Far outweigh the cost. It helps balance long lenses.

how do you remove the battery cover on the camera to be able to attached the BG-E20 Battery grip?
Asked by: Stephen
Open the battery door and remove the battery. On the hinge end you will see a small black sliding tab. Slide it to retract the pin and remove the door. There is a storage place on the Battery Grip to store the door so you don't lose it. Remember to install the door on the grip before you slide it into the camera. Turn the knurled disk on the battery grip to fasten it securely to the camera.
