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 recently purchased the battery grip for the Canon 80D and it works perfectly. I work for a hospital marketing department and need the extra battery and time to photograph and video tape events. B&H always has what I need!!

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

I always purchase a hand grip for my camera. I debated whether to buy a generic one of the Canon, the Canon fit's perfectly and has a good feel to it. I will never know how good or bad the generic one is, but am very happy with this one.

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

    I would describe this grip as being excellent. Although a lot of users have complained that it's a little big that works for me as I have long fingers. The buttons are placed just right and the versatility of having lithium and regular batteries is a plus. I can't speak to other companies grips but Canon's fits like a glove.

      Ive tried other brands but when it comes to battery grips, Ive always had the best luck if i stick with Canon. I have this for my 70D & the Canon grip for me 5D M3. It fits like a glove, works as described & adds a nice rubberized grip, great for anyone with big hands.

        I got this for the 80D. I have gotten the battery grips for all my Canon cameras. I like the extra heft or feel that they give to the cameras. I also like having the second battery installed so if I am traveling light without a bag I don't have to worry about losing the extra one or carrying a charger. The grip is solidly built and when attached seems like it is just a part of the camera.

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

        I own an older EOSXsi that had a battery grip. It was so handy. I recently updated to the EOS80D. Great camera but sure missed my battery grip. I went to Canon store and chocked when I saw the price.

        Came to my trusted B&H website and searched for the BG-E14. It came up but did not show it was compatible with the EOS 80D. Went back to my manual to verify and it showed the same model number. B&H had it for $130 cheaper than Canon.

        Been using it for about 2 weeks now and it works great. I did have to purchase another battery.

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

        I'm glad I chose to purchase this grip. Having the ability to have two batteries allows for extending shooting. Also the grip is comfortable for me since I have large hands. I like the added bulk it give the camera and helps me with steadying the camera better.

        Great Acessory

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

        I am very satisfied with my Canon BG-E14 Battery Grip for my Canon 70D camera. It gives me longer shooting time when using two LP-E6 batteries in the grip and it also gives me the option of using standard batteries (6-AA) in the grip in an emergency. It also makes the camera easier to hold, especially when using a large zoom lens.
        The main reason that I purchased this battery grip manufactured by Canon was that I had previously purchased a similar battery grip for my camera manufactured by a third party for a much cheaper price. But after a while I experienced intermittent problems when using it with my camera and a 11-16mm lens on a ball head mount on my tripod. Every once and a while when I would hold the camera and adjust its position the power would go off and come back on again, very frustrating. What I discovered was the +/- contacts on the top of the battery grip were mangled and causing a bad connection. Not sure what caused this, poor alignment, soft metal contacts or maybe they were bad when received?
        But I have had no such problem with my new Canon BG-E14 battery grip. Contacts look great. Battery grip works great. Usually you get what you pay for.

        This battery grip is a must need for any 70d owner. It doubles the battery life, adds additional grip for people with bigger hands, and also makes the camera look aesthetically nicer. Overall great purchase!

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

          Was going to buy an off brand but chose to go with cannon on the recommendation of a semi-pro friend. Really glad I did. The fit and finish is impeccable and it really improves the feel of the camera in my hands. The vertical shooting controls work perfectly. I can't imagine running my 70D without it on now, it really makes that much difference in the feel and control of the camera to me.

            This thing is great, it's beefy, solid as a rock. Adds a nice feel to the camera, extended battery life. Plus makes it look like a bigger more expensive camera - which is good for high-paying clients.

            Another benefit, is I recently picked up a fluid head tripod with a long release plate, with just the camera the plate hit the lens, this raises it up nicely to allow easier lens swapping and access to focus rings.

              I was use to a battery grip on my 50D so when I got my 70D I delayed a little while getting this grip. Now I wish I would have gotten it right away. With the flexibility of using AA batteries or having two standard batteries in at once, I can concentrate on shooting and not worry about battery consumption. Also, if you turn the camera for portrait shots it is much easier to use the built in shutter release.
