Vello BG-C17 overview

  • 1Description

Never on the market before, the Vello BG-C17 Battery Grip for Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is specifically designed for this camera because there was no battery grip available until now. Attaching the grip is done by installing the dummy battery into the camera's battery chamber, which is attached to the grip through the power supply cable, and tightening down the grip against the body via the thumbscrew into the 1/4"-20 tripod socket; a little of the power supply cable is left exposed, but does not interfere with the mounting.

The BG-C17 accepts two LP-E17 rechargeable batteries, which doubles the camera's battery life and shooting time. At the same time, the grip offers a comfortable, extended, rubberized non-slip grip, and a shutter release button for vertical use, so you're not shooting with your arm and hand in an awkward position. To get the vertical shutter button on the grip to operate, you must install the shutter release cable that leads from the grip into the camera's remote control port. Additionally, the grip maintains tripod support with the threaded 1/4"-20 socket on the bottom, and a strap mount on the side, so a hand or shoulder strap can securely attach.

    Vello BG-C17 reviews

    BG-C17 Battery Grip for Canon EOS Rebel SL2 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's exactly what I needed! Ok, we all know that the SL2 isn't the world's most glamorous, fancy, or even quality camera, but I LOVE it. It's simple, small, light, and does exactly what I need it to. That being said, the grip is like, Sony APS-C small, so I found this Grip and knew I had to have it. I thought the kind of backwards rigging of how the grip attached might be obnoxious (with the battery cable sticking out the side, and the shutter release patch cabled in, but it really doesn't bug me! I love it! It's exactly what I needed and wanted! I wish it had a shutter wheel on the grip, but I'm not sure that's even possible with how the camera is designed! Vello is known for their solutions to problems manufacturers didn't want to address, and they did it again! There aren't really any downsides to it, and as critical as I'd like to be, I just don't think there's anything to complain about!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKS WELL The grip is plastic and light weight. I take if off and put it on when I travel so it can fit in my cramped camera bag. I use the SL2 for BTW video mostly. The batteries are a bit of a pain in the butt to get in and out of the grip since the batteries are so small. I like how the SL2 has the rubber flap at the bottom near the battery door to allow the cord of the grip faux battery to fit into the SL2 battery compartment so you can close the door and then screw the grip into the bottom. I am still waiting to run both batteries down while using the camera. Just make sure you have a large GB memory card as you need to unscrew the battery grip every time to get access to the SD card. A sad flaw in the camera design to use it with a battery grip.
