I have this on my 6D most of the time when I'm shooting outdoors and when traveling. I like the grip for the stability it gives me when holding the camera in portrait orientation, and because it takes the abuse of setting the camera down in less-than-ideal environments like on trails or rocks; the grip and the lens hood touch the ground, the body and lens don't. These two benefits are what sold me on it.

For me, there is no real benefit to having two batteries in the camera. I don't shoot long videos, and I've never found myself in a situation where I missed a moment during the 5 seconds it takes to swap batteries. But you don't need to fill both battery slots for the grip to work, so I generally don't.

So far, with both this grip and the nearly-identical one I had on my 60D, I haven't had the need to use the 6 AA cartridge. I do carry a load of NiMH AA's with me for my flash units, but this has been just a peice-of-mind feature so far, as the LP-E6 batteries have good working time, so much so that I've never exhausted my pair of them in a full day of shooting.

I give this 4 stars because it doesn't feel any more substantial to me than the 60D's BG-E9 I paid significantly less for, nor any less substantial than the 5D3 grip that costs quite a bit more. I feel like Canon is scaling their grip pricing opportunistically with the mating camera value, rather than using correspondingly better materials or build quality. I also wish the grip had a place to store the battery hatch you need to remove from the camera when installing it, that would be a nice touch.

I shoot a fair amount of portrait shots and wanted to try this as the battery life on my 6D is not great. I did'nt like the feel of this grip when holding the camera in a landscape orientation. I tend to hold my camera with my right hand under the lens back near the lens mount. I found I could'nt place my right hand under the lens back by the lens mount when this grip is installed. The camera feels good when held in a portrait orientation but for me, I just don't like it when holding the camera landscape.

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

Excellent quality!!! I prefer Canon products rather than knockoffs. I did purchase Watson batteries and a charger and they are so far holding up well, but I don't want to get into the habit of always purchasing knockoffs.

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

I have used the battery grip for every camera I've had. While I like the weight of the 6D without the grip, it is lens heavy without one. Now the camera is balanced and I will reduce the strain on my hands,

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

This battery grip is awesome. I am glad I bought it. Shooting with a single battery was never an issue since I always brought extra batteries, but now I can shoot for 2 days - 9 hours a day each and still have a little less than half battery life left. When shooting verticals, the grip definitely performs as advertised. The controls work flawlessly. I would recommend this to fellow Canon 6D shooters

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

This grip worked fantastic. It was definitely worth the cost. I was hesitant at first but after reading all the reviews I could not help myself from wanting to get this. It benefits the camera so much in a way that allows for a more steady capture and longer run time on battery. Worth the buy

Excellent design and function

By Ed

from California

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

The grip comes with two trays -one for LE batteries and one for AA batteries. There's a slick cubby to store the camera battery door. The grip actually feels like an ergonomic grip and has independent shutter and exposure buttons when shooting portrait rotation. Having double the battery life for all night astro-landscape photography is a treat. Highly recommend this grip because the form fit and function are high quality.
The only con is that the threaded mount hole is not as deep as the camera mount hole and can be issue with a panorama head - the attachment knob bottoms too early.

Having problems with my third party grip for my t5i I decides not to cheap out and buy the canon brand grip for my 6d, it has worked perfectly since I bought it and I have no complaints.

Un accesorio ideal para largas jornadas de trabajo, incrementa un poco el peso de la cámara, por las baterías de litio, pero te proporciona extensas horas de independencia.

Perfect fit

By Greg

Comments about Canon BG-E13 Battery Grip for EOS 6D:

As I expected, this grip fits perfectly and for my hands it feels a lot better to hold with the grip on than not. Takes the ease off of holding your camera body vertically when you have the grip. All in all, love the feel and look of it. Not bad for the price too compared to other grips.

It makes the camera just right in your hands. I highly recommend a portrait grip for anyone. Your wrists aren't as sore at the end of the day and you end up getting sharper images to boot.
