    Canon BG-E20 reviews

    BG-E20 Battery Grip for EOS 5D Mark IV is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 138.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Fit, But Expensive I'll start my comments with the fact that I've owned Battery grips for several generations of Canon Cameras starting with the 20D. I find them to be very useful for my style of shooting. Great to have all the controls shooting vertically that you have shooting horizontally. This grip is very expensive. I don't understand why this is so much more than the grip for the 5D Mark III. There's only one more button on it. I'm also disappointed in the quality of the materials for the battery drawer. Compared to the material from the BG-E11 (Mark III), there is a clear difference in the quality of the materials, even though they are both plastic. I enjoy using it, just a bit frustrated with the price battery drawer materials. Don't get me wrong, it works well, hence my 4 star rating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable Product. I use the Canon Grips on my two sports cameras. Great Reliable and Rugged.... Purchased a 5DMkIV for all other work and really missed the Canon Grip. All external materials and construction are excellent. I agree with other reviews that the Battery Tray is not constructed as heavy as the other Canon Grips. It was redesigned from prior Canon Grips. The BG-E20 Battery Tray can be twisted and broken. Probably good to be careful when changing batteries. I did not want to take chances with Knock-Offs. I want dependable products and accessories (Even if they cost slightly more). I would Rate at 4.5 Stars. Battery Tray is not perfect.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality grip and fit, but cheap flimsy battery tray I have owned a lot of battery grips; for the 20D, 7D, 6D and 5D Mark III. The fit, grip shape and solid-ness have gotten progressively better. First, this is the most solid grip I have used. There is zero flex, and I would not hesitate to use this on a tripod. The buttons are nice, very responsive, and the new rocker button works well. It has a different feel than the rocker button on the camera, but it still feels very high quality. The shutter button matches the camera almost exactly. All of that being said, i have taken 2 stars off for both the high price and the cheap battery tray. The difference between this tray and the old ones is night and day, and I am planning to be very, very careful in handling this tray so as not to break it. It is flimsy and the batteries do not seat solidly like the 5D III tray. The closure feels flimsy, and there is a plastic part that moves forward to seat (we'll call it Battery A) when you close the latch, but there is no similar piece to seat Battery B. Finally the latch mechanism felt like it was going to break if I was too rough in closing it. Overall I'm disappointed, and it bothers me knowing that this $3850 machine relies on the cheapest of plastic to keep its power. I think there is a good chance that a 3rd party might make a better battery grip this go around. I will probably be on the lookout for one and sell my Canon grip if I find one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional but flimsy and overpriced Works as expected, with ergonomic design, dual battery capacity, extra buttons for vertical shooting, & slots to accommodate hand grip. Compared with the sturdy BG-E11 grip for the 5DIII or 5DS, the battery tray for the BG-E20 is made of cheap, flimsy plastic of doubtful durability. The batteries are hard to seat. No alternative tray for AA batteries is provided. Compared its predecessor, it's a markedly inferior product priced $75 higher. Pay more. Get less. Very disappointing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible new design I've used Canon battery grips with my original 5D, 5D2, and 5D3 cameras. They were all great...sturdy and easy to use. But Canon blew it with this one. It takes a bit of finesse to get the batteries to latch into the poorly-designed battery tray. There is really no way to tell by looking at it if the battery is secure. If it rattles around or falls out, it's not secure. If the front battery is not all the way into the holder, you can't insert the battery holder into the grip. If the second battery is not secure in the holder, you can't latch the holder into the grip. After a few tries, I've got it figured out...but it will always take more time and require more care to remove/insert batteries in this holder compared to previous holders. And as others have said, the holder itself is pretty is the latching mechanism that secures the battery tray in the grip. I can't see this lasting long. Maybe Canon planned it that way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Addition To The 5D Mk IV Body Since the 5D Mk IV body is slightly smaller than that of the 5D Mk III, the BG-E20 is the model to use. I have used battery grips on all my cameras for several years and consider them to be essential additions that provide better ergonomic control of the camera and double the available battery power. The BG-E20 was ordered with the 5D Mk IV body and was easily attached and ready to go to work. The vertical grip camera controls are well located and operate perfectly. Although the new camera and grip do not yet have a lot of operational time, the construction, fit, and finish of the BG-E20 are in league with that used on my 5DS R and previous 5D Mk III which have performed flawlessly in all conditions I expect similar performance from the BG-E20.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I would buy this again. This grip is great. It makes a huge difference in the handling of the camera. The extra battery is good if you are using wi-fi.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery Grip 5D MK lV Every Canon DSLR that I have owned I have purchased a grip for going back to the 20D , for the work I do it is an essential component . While the battery grip for the 5D MK lV works just as well as all the others it is costly and the battery tray in my opinion is of lower quality and less complex in design so why does it cost more? I have no problem paying for products that are useful and made to last as a wedding photographer taking thousand of images on the weekend that is essential , I feel Canon lowered there standard for this grip
