The Canon BG-E11 Battery Grip is an optional battery grip with improved ergonomics designed specifically for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 5DS, and 5DS R. It allows users to load a choice of one or two LP-E6 battery packs. With two packs, the already-impressive battery life is doubled, compared to using a single LP-E6 pack in-camera. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode - operating modes that use more power. In addition, with the included battery magazine, you can also run the camera off six AA batteries.

Hi, does it work with a 5D Mark II ?
Asked by: Anonymous
No it will not work. I had the same camera and once the MK-III came out, Canon stopped selling the grip for the MK-II (just about every camera model has a different grip). You have two options. Buy the Vello BG-C2.2 Battery Grip for Canon 5D Mark II, which is what I did. It works well. Or get a used Canon grip via Ebay.

When attached firmly to the 5DS R camera does the tightening disk have any play so that it twists loosely a small amount?
Asked by: Kelly
I have zero play when tight. The body is almost always mounted on a 600f/4 mkii which I use handheld (lots of torque on grip); What happens with the grip is it can loosen (very rarely). Wouldn't hurt to put a dab of thread lock on the bolt.

I have a non canon battery grip and the biggest issue is with the connectiobns to my 5d m3 r sometimes having issues. For example starting to shoot and no power, having to tighten the attachment screw or just working it around a little. Very Frustrating. With the Canon brand grip is this an issue or does it consistently keep a god connection between the camera and battery grip? Price is high but I can't continue too use a battery grip that is inconsistent providing a solid connection to my 5d.
Asked by: Peter
The Canon grip should work seamlessly on the 5D3 without any issues.
