    Purchase with caution...

    This seemed like a handy and useful item. When it arrived, I was pleased with the appearence and feel. Then came the downfall...the item did NOT function with the battery magazine that was used to hold the Canon LP-E8 batteries. There are 2 positions, for 2 batteries. Supposedly, you can use one or two batteries. Neither position would work. At this point, I thought the grip was defective. Then I loaded the 6 AA batteries in their separate magazine and loaded into the grip. Now everything worked perfectly. The problem was with the magazine used for the LP-E8 batteries. I contacted Amazon, they instructed me on how to contact the seller, bestdealusa, which I do not believe is even in the U.S. Also, they have NO PHONE NUMBER. I contacted them, they asked for the order number which I provided, THEN THEY DID NOTHING...except passed the problem back to Amazon. They will not take any responsibility for the product.

    works as advertised, quick ship, good transaction

    Summary: viable off-brand alternativeRelevant experience: 4+ years using EOS line; 24+ years using SLRs; previous use of off-brand grip for XTi and motor grips for other SLRsThis grip performs exactly per the specification. It fits snugly against the camera body with no wiggling. The battery door closes tightly and securely. All buttons perform their assigned functions. I consider this a very acceptable alternative to the far more expensive canon part; no cons whatsoever. Another grip I purchased (similar model for an XTi from a different off-brand manufacturer) developed some cracking and shifting of the vinyl grip, but even that is minor in the big scheme of things... time will tell how this product performs, but I expect it should be stable for several years.Based on this product's build quality, I would definitely consider purchasing other products from this manufacturer.An added bonus for those photographers with large hands: this grip... 5/5 Photoleif (colorado, usa) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not working, and returning seems difficult.

    The battery grip arrived well packed, and the grip itself seems to be of excellent build quality. However, the one I got doesn't work. Sure, it holds the batteries and powers the camera, but none of the buttons on the grip work. One of the great things about getting a battery grip is the ability to use it as a secondary grip when shooting vertical shots. The shutter button on mine doesn't work at all, so I can't use it that way, and the other buttons take up to 10 seconds to do anything when they are pressed, IF they do anything at all.I contacted the company that sold it and let them know of the problem, and they told me that, "All payments and transactions go directly thru Amazon. We are unable to do anything with the order. If you have any questions regarding this issue, you will have to contact Amazon directly."So that's unfortunate.

    Better than expected for my T3i

    Ended up getting the Meike brand (Neewer typically uses Meike, Yongnuo and a few other brands). I must say, this grip fits, looks and works fantastic. The only difference between the construction look and feel of the battery grip and the camera itself, is the grip material. And like someone else said, I actually like the grip of the battery grip better than what comes on the camera. Very had to tell the difference unless you're looking for it.The door doesn't feel any more flimsy than the door that comes off of the camera battery compartment itself. The only complaint I might have with it, is that the dial isn't as smooth as the one on the camera, but it works flawlessly regardless. It feels great in my hands when attached, both batteries charged right up within a couple of hours - comes with an 8 AA battery backup power box - overall, for the price, I am very VERY happy with the product.By the way, for those looking into buying a case - with this... 5/5 Al - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good Product, Great Value, Fantastic Accessory for your T2i!

    With no reviews yet for this Battery Grip when I ordered, I figured I'd be the Guinea Pig on this product and give it a try. I have to give it a good solid 4 1/2 stars, would have been 5 if not for one thing...)My package arrived, and I had it installed on the camera in just a few minutes, before I ever looked at the instructions. Easy to attach.The Battery Grip is "MeiKe" brand, and it looks to be very good quality. Fit and finish is very good, equal to the Canon T2i.The Battery Grip gives my T2i a much more "substantial" feel for my large hands (I'm 6'0" and 275) and makes me feel more secure holding it in my grasp, especially with a telephoto zoom or Speedlite installed. The vertical shutter release and main wheel built into the grip make taking "portrait" pictures a very comfortable snap. The selector wheel has almost the exact feel as the camera's wheel, but the shutter release has a softer "click" when releasing the shutter than the T2i's... 4/5 Brian Dudenbostel (Southern Illinois) - See all my reviews, February 18, 2011

    Grip drains batteries even when switched off

    I bought the Meike LCD Battery Grip from Amazon vendor "New Harbor" for my Canon T3i on 3 Dec 2012. I really wanted to like it, but ran into a number of problems, some of which I was able later address with a simple fix.PROB 1: Only one of the two battery slots on the LP-E8 tray worked. The contacts looked fine, but whenever I put a freshly charged battery in the LP-E8 slot furthest away from the battery grip door, the T3i would not work. Put the same battery in the near slot, and voilá, the T3i fires up with no problems. Put in two batteries, and the battery nearest the door would eventually drain completely, while the one furthest from the door would not discharge at all. Swap batteries, and the T3i would work again. BTW 1: I used both Canon OEM and Opteka LP-E8 batteries in the experiment.

    Grip Enhances Picture Taking

    5/5 Alan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Battery Grip Bundle F/ Nikon D5100, D5200, D5300: Includes Vertical Battery Grip, 2-Pk EN-EL14 Long-Life Batteries, Charger, More (Electronics) This grip fits the Nikon D5300 perfectly. The instructions, for the removal of the battery cover, are perfect. This grip allows much better "control" and stability of the camera given that I have fairly large hands. I have used this indoors as well as outside (winter at 20 degrees F) with no issues. The battery charger swiftly charges the included batteries. The car-charger will be a great benefit in the coming months with a planned road trip. I have not used the wireless remote yet but I am looking forward to some night photography opportunities, while on the future road trip. Excellent product at a great price.Access to the battery compartment is simpler than previous models I have owned.

This review is from: Battery Grip Bundle F/ Nikon D5100, D5200, D5300: Includes Vertical Battery Grip, 2-Pk EN-EL14 Long-Life Batteries, Charger, More (Electronics) I love everything about this battery grip. The price makes it even better. The only issue that prevents it from receiving 5 stars are the accessories that come with it. The batteries, and charger are great - don't worry about that. It is the wireless camera remote that is junk. It loses connection with the camera after only a few shots. I would be standing 1ft away from my camera and the remote would lose connection. Don't let this sway you from buying this battery grip though. The grip is wonderful, and the batteries are every bit as good as the ones that originally came with my camera. It is great to have an extra set! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 29, 2015

This review is from: Canon Battery Grip BG-E16 (Electronics) I don't give up many 5 stars but this is good stuff..I've purchased 3 Canon grips so far, for my Canon EOS 30D, Canon EOS 5DMKll and now my Canon EOS 7DMKll. Makes shooting life much less worrisome thinking about my batteries condition and from what I've heard this is especially true with the 7D with it's dual image processors, GPS and 10fps for the sport/fast action aficionados. The focus controls duplicated on the grip are a real bonus. A must have for all day shooting with out carrying additional batteries in my pocket or pack. The "N" batteries work fine but my non "N's" also work with this grip although the ma hrs are rated less than the "N" batteries that come with the 7DMKll. Unless I hear differently the chargers have the same part number and work with either battery system as I've charged the different batteries on different chargers.

    Great Build Quality - all necessary functions

    I initailly bought the Vivitar grip for my Canon 7D Mark II because I used to have a Vivitar grip for my previous Canon 7D camera and thought it was decent for the money. The Vivitar never gave me any problems.When I upgraded to the 7D Mark II, the old 7D grip did not work so I needed a new grip. At the time I ordered the 7D Mark II Vivitar grip, the "Features" advertised stated it had all the functions of the Canon OEM grip. Well, when it arrived I discovered that no, it does not have all the functions of the OEM grip. Namely, this Vivitar grip does not have the little joy-stick for selecting the AF points.I also learned that the OEM Grip is constructed with a magnesium frame just as my 7D Mark II. For these reasons, I reluctantly decided to suck it up and pay the extra $$ for this OEM Canon Grip. I'm not knocking the Vivitar grip - for the money it is a fine grip, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. This OEM Grip just feels so much... 4/5 Cyril J.

    I got this product for my Nikon D5100. Works great for me. There are some people out there confuded with Non-OEM EN-EL14 compatible batteries.Nikon designed EN-EL14 by inserting a chip that has unique signature inside Nikon EN-EL14 battery.

You should have at least one Nikon made EN-EL14 for this simple trick.I have one with Nikon EN-EL14 that came with camera and the other that I bought from Internet for $7.50 ~ $12.00.

    Works great on the D5100

    4/5 Art - See all my reviews This review is from: Neewer Pro Battery Grip for Nikon D5100 5200 D5300 DSLR Camera Compatible with EN-EL14 Batteries (Electronics) Hoping that Nikon will release their own version of this, but until then this one is perfect for the price. Fits well and looks nice on the D5100 and with the extra battery, the D5100 feels nice. The grip area is also nice. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is for two things, first the little wire that you need to connect from the battery grip to the camera is a little annoying but I can live with it especially for what I paid for this item. The wire just makes it look a bit strange but not a big problem and when you take out the screen and flip it, sometimes you bump into the wire, but not to big of an annoyance. Secondly, when you are shooting vertically it is a bit difficult to move the AF point unless you move your hand up to the cursor to move it, then back to use the shutter on the battery grip. Other than that, works well and looks nice, makes the camera look like a pro camera. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 22, 2011

    Cheap, works, has quirks!

    First, I don't think Nikon planned to make a battery grip for the D5100 or D3100, because they did not include contacts inside the camera to accept signals from the shutter button on an grip. Because there is a demand for the function, the copycats went to work and made this gadget and many similar versions of it. They are not made by Nikon, of course.It's cheap. A Nikon version would cost 10 times as much. It's not Nikon quality and it feels a little flimsy. It works, but... Sometimes the camera says the battery is not compatible with the camera, even if you use Nikon batteries. It seems that re-inserting the grip in the battery will somehow get around this. I don't understand why, but this works. By the way, there are other versions of this available elsewhere that come with the an extra tray to accept 8 AA batteries, but for some reason they are quite expensive ($100+).It comes with a short external cable that goes from the grip to the camera remote... 4/5 Opti Mystic (San Jose, California) - See all my reviews This review is from: Neewer Pro Battery Grip for Nikon D5100 5200 D5300 DSLR Camera Compatible with EN-EL14 Batteries (Electronics) First, I don't think Nikon planned to make a battery grip for the D5100 or D3100, because they did not include contacts inside the camera to accept signals from the shutter button on an grip.

    Awesome value - an excellent grip for the price

    I used this battery grip with a rented Nikon D7100 for a weekend event shoot (over 2,000 photos taken with 2 camera bodies), and it held up very well. I have a similar off-brand battery grip for my own Nikon D7000, and this grip is built pretty much exactly the same.Almost everything (besides the screw, wiring, and the connection between the battery holders and the grip itself) is plastic, and probably won't last years, but at this price, I'm not worried about that. The rubber grip feels just like the camera body's rubber, and looks almost identical to the Nikon pattern. From a foot away, I'd be surprised if anyone could tell a difference between this grip and the Nikon OEM grip.The tripod screw that holds the grip to the body is able to be tightened as much as you want (the more the better, in some ways), though the little wheel you spin to tighten the screw is smaller than in the OEM grip and other off-brand grips I've used. It's not a big deal, but it makes... 5/5 Jeff Geerling (St. Louis, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Good alternative to the pricey Nikon version with some flaws

    So I just traded in my D7000 and grip for a D7100. I bought my D7000 grip used for I think $150 which was worth it and it worked and fit perfectly. Even the grip for my D90 was just as good as the D7000. I just received this grip for my D7100 in the mail today and installed it and here are my first impressions.I am going to have to return this grip for a replace. The reason being the command dials when flicked to adjust aperture or shutter speed (or ISO) won't just increase or decrease shutter speed or F stop in the proper increments. Instead of just going up thru the range as if you used the command dials on the body itself it literally flies thru the range stopping at a speed or aperture that would seemingly be 4-8 or even 10 clicks away. It's as if each notch you move the command dial is equal to numerous clicks to the command dial on the body. So I can't just increase my shutter speed from 1/30th to 1/40th it goes to 200 or 400 very quickly. Aperture does the... 3/5 Christopher B.

    Great grip for the price

    I've bought four other Neewer camera accessories, and so far, I have been very impressed with them. This grip is no exception.While this grip might lack the "perfect fit and finish" of the true Nikon grip, it's not something one would notice without looking closely. The textured pattern on the plastic body and on the rubberized parts very closely matches the texturing on the camera body (some of the others that look just like it by other companies have bigger texturing that stands out more and doesn't match Nikon's texturing). More importantly, the grip feels good in one's hand.Once properly connected to the camera, all the buttons work as one would expect. They include:- AE-L/AF-L- thumbstick (with press for OK)- command and sub command dials- grip power (turns off the grip - not the camera)- Shutter release/focus button (works just like the one on the camera)Besides the nice job Neewer did on making the grip match the... 5/5 Robert Mauro (West Islip, NY USA) - See all my reviews, April 26, 2014

    GREAT Creative Tool!

    This product is GREAT! It's become a permanent fixture on my Canon T3i... Anyone who is serious about their photography should purchase this battery grip. The most obvious advantage is having two batteries (included) vs. one: doubling your "shoot" time... Also, if your dedicated LP-E8 batteries do die on you, it has an included second battery tray that holds 4 AA's. I carry good quality lithium batteries w/ me at all times... You DO get what you pay for when it comes to buying high-end batteries. Don't learn the hard way! This battery grip of course, has a shutter release button, an AV, AE lock, a zoom button for "live mode" and an on-off button. All work perfectly just like those on the camera body itself. It also makes vertical shooting so much easier. Sometimes we tend to shot to many horizontal pics, but the grip actually "encourages" you to take more vertical shots because of the ease of use. I got some recently of a guest speaker at my church, and they... 5/5 LeRoy W. Lee (WALLACE, NORTH CAROLINA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent grip for a fraction of the cost

    This battery grip is incredibly sturdy and feels comfortable in the hand. The two batteries that come with it do last a while, but in case you didn't know, these batteries will not indicate whether they are losing charge or not. They will simply display full charge until it dies. This might be an inconvenience for some, but if you have spare batteries lying around, they are a breeze to exchange. The battery grip also has a space dedicated for the door you must remove in order for the grip to go in, which is great since there is a small chance of you losing it or misplacing it. I've used this product for almost a month and have used it to take panoramas, shots of San Francisco, and a couple of in Oakland. The buttons offer excellent feedback so there is no slacking there. However, one thing that worries me is the latch which secure the batteries. It feels really cheap and simply feels like it won't last a long time. Nevertheless, though, I have not had any problems with it, and would... 5/5 Jose Garcia - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
