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

battery grip allows tripod mounting 80D w/power zoom attach.

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

I literally had to buy this attachment, not just to provide a long-term power source, but it was the only way for me to clear the body of my Canon EOS 80D (raise it up enough) so that the power zoom attachment for the zoom lens would clear the tripod plate. Without the battery grip, the camera can only be tripod-mounted at the very front of the tripod head. The power zoom attachment under the lens prevents the camera from being able to slide back to the center of the plate. With the battery grip, the camera can now move back to the center of the tripod plate and stay balanced on the tripod. One wonders why the zoom mechanism wasn't built into the camera itself.

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

If you're thinking about getting a battery grip for your 80D, I highly recommend the Canon grip. First you've already spent over a grand on your camera, not to mention even more for your lenses. Why go for a third party bargain basement products. I've heard numerous comments on third party grips not working well or not holding up to prolong usage. The Canon fits well and feels great in your hands. The rubbery grips perfectly matches your 80D grip and you know you have a quality product. It seems to balance your camera well especially when you have a larger lens on. It also works well when you want to shoot it in portrait mode with controls on the grip. The double battery certainly is a plus when you're shooting all day long. Sure, it costs more than third party grips but in a long run I think it's worth it.

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

Verified Buyer

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.

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.
