Although this grip is tagged and sold for the Canon 70D, it also fits the new 80D perfectly. Initially I purchased a third party battery grip for my 80D because of the price difference but had to send it back. The fit and finish was terrible and electronically, it would not properly connect to the camera. I had read several reviews about third party grips damaging or destroying camera bodies so I decided to purchase the Canon branded product for nearly 4 times the price in order to protect my warranty. Boy am I glad I did! The Canon battery grip is absolutely perfect in all aspects...functionality, internal quality, external appearance, feel, comfort in the hand, weight and balance...everything! Take it from experience, go ahead, spend the extra money and get an item that is not counterfeit and matches that new camera perfectly. Besides, if something does happen, you're covered by your warranty.

Quality build on this accessory grip, with 'extra' battery holder for the LPE-6 and for a set of double-A's. The grip is 'bulky' compared those I've used on Nikon and takes some adjustment. In the case of needing the extra juice on hand I'll use the grip, otherwise no

I like it, does what it should, adds a little weight but that's actually something I like and now I never have to worry about not having enough battery power to make it through a lengthy shoot on location.

I expected the product to perform as anticipated and it does. What I was pleasantly surprised by was the excellent service. My grip was well packed and delivered promptly. They gave me status updates on the delivery and to top it off, had the best price. I will shop at B&H again.

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

I've used Battery grips on all my cameras for the last 15-20 years. They are a necessity for several reasons, (e.g., ease of use, extra battery capacity, etc.).

Great, except for fitting with Canon EF 70-200 mm lens

By D Vector

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

I like the battery grip for my Canon 70 D. However, if I have my larger Canon EF 70-200 mm lens attached, and want to use my Manfrotto quick release on the barrel mount of lens, it doesn't fit.
I read only one other reviewer that mentioned this problem (As a potential issue), however there is nothing in the specifications that indicate it's limited usage with the larger lenses and bayonet mounting. I find it disappointing, as many of you know, the EF 70-200mm lens is rocksolid and a standard go to, heavy enough to have the bayonet mount– And rightfully so.
I'm disappointed that this wasn't made more clear before I purchased.

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

I bought this so that when I upgrade to an 80D I'll have a compatible battery grip. Yesterday I did a 75 min shoot without having to change the battery. Didn't even have to think about it. Worked fine. Buttons are right where you'd expect them to be. On/of switch, of course. Prevents accidental triggering. There is a little place to store the camera's battery lid so that you won't lose it. Comes with two sleeves - one for Canon batteries and one for AA. Very sturdy and solid, but heavy - adds about a pound with the batteries in it, so I may not use it for wildlife/hiking. But well worth the price. Should have bought it two years ago.

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

Great purchase. It does add some bulkiness to the camera but it's not unwieldy. The grip fits comfortably in my hand and is easy to carry. I recently shot a national trade show and carried this around on the show floor all day without any fatigue.

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

If you plan on getting this don't wait. I did and believe me having 2 batteries going at once is relief that its going to die on you. Also the grip gives you a little more weight on the camera but I loved the controls on the grip when I turn my camera sideways. Its nice not having to bring your hand over top the camera. I looked at the lesser priced ones but you cant beat the quality of this grip. So if you thinking about getting one don't think gop get it!

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

Battery grips are the first accessory I buy for all my cameras. It's nice having the extra battery life you get with two batteries in the camera instead of one. I also like the big beefy feel you get with the extra weight.

Comments about Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for EOS 70D and 80D:

This is the 4th Canon BG that I've had and they have always done exactly what Canon claims they'll do. I had one for a film Elan II E, a digital Rebel XT, a 50d and now an80d. All have worked flawlessly. A great accessory because you have 2X the battery life and a vertical shutter.

Top notch build quality. Adds a very nice "pro" feel and balance to my Canon 80D. The doubled battery life and extra long grip AND added weight make this one of my best photo gear purchases yet.

I bought this grip for my 80d and absolutely love it. It does add a little weight, but for me, it just feels much better to grip. Having extra battery life and buttons in portrait mode is a bonus.
