    Vello BG-C5.2 reviews

    BG-C5.2 Battery Grip for Canon EOS Rebel T2i, T3i, T4i & T5i Cameras is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 107.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I did some research to find out how well this works as opposed to the name brand Canon version and everything I read said that it pretty much is the real deal. The material is slightly different than that of a Canon body and it does not completely flush with the body of the camera, almost a perfect fit though. No wiggle room or anything like that, though. I've heard that it really likes Canon brand name batteries and I have not tested it with any others but it read and all the buttons worked as I expected them too. The added cartridge for AA batteries was a life saver in between battery charging during a wedding shoot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Alternative I bought the Vello BG-C5.2 Battery Grip an alternative to the extremely expensive Canon Battery Grip for my Canon Rebel T3i. I plan on using this product as I spend the summer taking pictures for slideshows at a nearby camp. This particular grip is very versatile as it includes a battery tray that contains 2 LP-E8 batteries and another that can contain up to 6 AA batteries which can prove to be extremely convenient. The grip handles off-brand batteries very well also. The only criticisms that I have for this product is that it seems slightly bulkier than necessary and the controls don't feel quite the same as the camera's, however this is to be expected when buying alternative products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Definate 'Should Buy' Accessory Best accessory I have bought so far.Fits like a glove on the camera body. Apart from the obvious extended battery usage, this grip really balances out the camera well with longer lenses.On my first use with this grip I found I had much more control holding the camera. With no hint of shake when using a 250mm zoom lens. Especially when used vertically, where it feels even more steady.The Vello Grip allows me to use ALL my fingers when gripping the body, instead of the PINKIE floating in space under the camera body (as without the grip and having large but normal hands).Pretty well made with the same look & feel as the Canon body itself. Along with same function buttons. But at $+++ cheaper than the OEM grip A Real Bargain Good ol B&H''.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get this Now! I received the package quickly and was part of a larger order I had been anxiously awaiting. Quick shipment. Packaged extremely well. When I received my order it was like that feeling of an 8 year old on Xmas! Unfortunately the grip did not work but I returned the item with the prepaid label that I received thru customer support from B & H Photo. Super easy! Without question or delay they shipped me a replacement and all I can say is Wow! Great product and even greater customer service! I will continue to shop with B&H Photo! You now have a life long customer! Thank You!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG-C5.2 Battery Grip for Canon EOS T3i I just bought this Vello battery grip for my Canon T3i and it works fine (the battery charge shows on the LCD), and gives to this small camera a better grip and weight that makes it more comfortable to work with. It is quite sturdy and looks very similar to the original one, but I have to add that I never had the OEM in my only compared with photos. The texture of the rubbery part of the grip is not exactly as the one on the camera but just to be picky: because it doesn't really matter so much.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG-C5.2 Battery Grip I like the build quality, but had to send one back as the small twist handle that you turn to remove the battery tray would not stay shut. Vello responded quickly to my email inquiry regarding the problem, and BH was great as the turnaround time on the replacement was just under a week. I like the vertical grip for portrait orientation shooting but will have to get used to the back-button focus switch being the second switch in the row - I keep pressing the AV +/- switch by mistake. I like the convenient battery door storage as well - that way you won't lose the door. All in all a good buy if you need extra battery life and/or shoot a lot of portrait orientation shots

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need some extra time? Does what it says. Extra power for longer time on shoots. I like the option to use both 6x AA or 2x LP-E8 as power options. Both work well, but I like the 2x LP-E8 option as it just has more juice vs the 6x AA. (a full set of 6x AA's will last only about as long as a normal LP-E8 battery.) It adds some nice weight to the light T2i body. Also the extra grip room is a huge plus for people with big hands. The grip is close to the same texture as the camera, but just a little off. It still has really great traction, and wont be slipping out of your hands any faster than before. Construction quality is good, but some part do feel a tad bit cheap, but not overly cheap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! This is an EXCELLENT product. I LOVE it!! Everything works just as promised! Best part: You do not have to remove your camera from a tripod (or better yet!) a Glidecam (no re-balancing!); you simply slide the battery compartment out from the SIDE of the Grip & it's all so easy! I wish I would've bought it the day I got my camera! You have no idea how much you were missing out without it, nor will you comprehend how you lived without it. Makes my camera so much better!
