The Deluxe Power Grip for Canon 5D Mark III from Vivitar is a battery grip designed for use specifically with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III digital SLR camera, and accepts one or two Canon LP-E6 batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. In addition, the Deluxe Power Grip can utilize 6 AA batteries and comes with a battery tray designed to hold 6 AA/LR6 batteries.

    Vivitar PG-5DMIII reviews

    Deluxe Power Grip for Canon 5D Mark III is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Built, feels good in the hand. As a Real Estate photographer shooting up to 6 homes a day the grip is necessary. We don't have to switch out batteries in the middle of a shoot. I have both the Canon and the Vivitar grips: function is identical. It securely mounts to the tripod and maintains a snug fit to the 5D. No Wobble! Bang for the buck buy the Vivitar. Cannon is always my first choice, however I don't feel I sacrificed any functionality with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed well compared to other grips Performed well in my tests comparing battery grips for the Canon 5D Mark III. You can see the study comparing this grip with the Canon, Vello and Flashpoint at pietrzyk.us

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You can see the price in the product It fits nicely on the camera and feels nice to hold, however my grips swivel didn't work. Meaning I could not change between aperture, or exposures, when shooting vertically. In addition, the camera could not read the batteries (although it powered on and worked, it could not read them and therefore could not tell me how much battery I had left). For that reason I rate this product so low. Had everything been working I would have given it a 4 star rating.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not Awesome Works well now... unforunately it scared the *explitive* out of me when i was shooting a wedding and all of a sudden it said i had no battery power. Took it off and plugged it back in, seems to work fine ever since. Also just RIPS through AA batteries, use actual camera batteries.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The grip is solid. Attaches without any problems and the slot for the battery cover is very handy. Very easy to operate using the grip's controls. With 2 batteries, it is a bit on the heavy side but that is really not an issue. Great price compared to the OE.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does work. So I paid one quarter of the price of the grip made by the same company that makes my camera. This is important because my expectations were low to begin with. Is it worth the money? Yes so far and for light use only I would say. With the exception of the electrical contacts and the screw that attaches to the bottom of the camera this Vivitar grip is made out of plastic and it feels like it. The upside is that it's very light weight. The grip comes surprisingly well packaged in a nice box and included is the battery tray that will take two camera batteries, but you can use just one battery if you prefer, and also a tray that takes AA batteries. The battery door comes off the camera and mounts to the grip itself for safe keeping but you don't have to keep it there. You must read and understand the instructions as far as the power switch on the grip itself and the power switch on the camera are concerned. The bottom line is that all of the buttons and wheels work just fine. I bought this grip to help while shooting nature stuff with my telephoto zoom lens so it will not remain on the camera all of the time so it's perfect for my particular needs. If however I was taking a trip around the world or I needed it to shoot actual paying jobs for clients on a regular basis I would NOT be using this Vivitar grip. I would have bought the really expensive one from the camera manufacturer which is precision made out of metal and so forth. Like I said in the headline, it does work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful and lighter than imagine This grip is very helpful when I need take the photo vertical. It provide additional battery and I do not need to worry about the battery when I am travelling. The most important thing is, the grip is not that heavy as it looks like.
