With two batteries installed, shooting time is effectively doubled, or you can use the grip with a single battery while a second battery is recharging.

The grip includes a secondary tray designed to hold six AA batteries, which can be used as a short-term power option when your LP-E6 batteries are exhausted.

Is it compatible with Canon EOS R?

Not having a EOS R, you would have to purchase it and see if it does. If not return it. For my MKIII, it works perfect!

Has anyone used this grip in combination with one of the more popular L brackets (RRS, Kirk, Pro Media Grar, etc)? One of the reviewers mentioned that this grip didn't fit his L bracket properly. My only hesitation with purchasing this Vello grip would be that it wouldn't be compatible with a future L bracket purchase (always have wanted a close-fitting, camera specific L bracket).Thanks!

My Quick Flip 350 from Stroboframe works in several different configurations. I have taken it completely apart to put back together different than the way it came. All of the configurations work. The Vello grip is the same size as the camera so if the grip you are looking at fits the camera with out the extra battery grip , wouldn't it fit with the extra grip? I rigged my Canon 5d mk3 with a Ninja 2 and a juice link RM333 and a Rode video mike. Every thing fits after a couple of extra hole were drilled and tapped.

Will this grip work with the Canon 5DS?
Asked by: Bryant H.
it works, but somehow it is not 100% fit phisically. You can feel a little loose between battery case and camera.

Can I mount the base plate of my tripod with this battery grip attached for canon 5D mk III?
Asked by: Aamir K.
Yes but I attached a quick release to mine & it striped! I can't get it off. I stoped by a local camera store today & they said they have seen this happen several times with this model. When they have gotten it off in the past it was not usable for a mount any longer. I'm going to have to buy a another one. I'm going with Canon this time!
