This review is from: Battery Grip Kit for Canon Rebel T2i T3i T4i T5i Digital SLR Camera Includes Qty 2 Replacement LP-E8 Batteries + Vertical Battery Grip + More!! (Electronics) I was completely worried when I ordered this grip. I had a Canon Rebel before with the true Canon battery grip and had heard horror stories of knock off battery grips... so I was hesitant to buy this but decided to give it a shot for the price difference.I am completely impressed with this product. Not only is the grip built very well, but they include two batteries and a tray that allows you to use regular batteries should you need to in a pinch.Great product. I'm glad I ordered this and saved a boat load of money. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 29, 2013

    Great kit. Why pay more?

    0 5/5 DXLi "Elunah" (Honolulu, HI, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Battery Grip Kit for Canon Rebel T2i T3i T4i T5i Digital SLR Camera Includes Qty 2 Replacement LP-E8 Batteries + Vertical Battery Grip + More!! (Electronics) This is a great third-party battery grip at 1/4 of the price of the Canon-branded version. It has decent build quality and fits snugly. If it were built any more solidly, it might be unnecessarily heavy. The texture on the body matches my T4i's very closely. The buttons work well. The batteries also work well--much better than the stock ones.The kit comes with two battery trays. One tray holds 1 or 2 LP-E8 batteries. It will work even if you only insert one battery. The other one holds several AA's, which is extremely useful in case you run out of power at an inopportune time. As for charging, I highly recommend getting the PhotoPro Dual Charger for use with this grip kit. There's no sense buying this without upgrading to a dual charger.As compared with other versions, I just wish this one had a place to put the original battery lid from the camera. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 23, 2013

    Works great. Makes the camera easier to hold. Time lapse MUST

    Bought this to extend my time lapses. With my T4i (Canon 650D) it functions great. I bought extra wasabi batteries and the included wall/car charger, and have already put it to use shooting astro-timelapses, as well as used it to shoot portraits and landscape photography. Really happy with the grip, and the feel.Does what I wanted it to do, and have no gripes other than it adds weight and bulk. But....that was to be expected.LOVE that I can bring the insert to use AA batteries if and when my other batteries are out of charge and I need more pics. I believe it requires 6 AA batteries. (Or 8.) But this option is great. Used this option on purpose one time through the batteries to see how many images I could get on the charge. Shot hundreds of long exposure, RAW images, and was able to shoot for hours. ~700-800 photos if I remember correctly.Like the ability to adjust settings.Love being able to shoot more comfortably in portrait mode... 5/5 Pensrud - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Tony Blackwood - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Canon Battery Grip BG-E8 (Electronics) Paid a premium on this due to it being sold out elsewhere but it was essential to an upcoming video shoot. It adds nice weight to the T2i and makes the camera feel a bit more solid. The AA battery cartridge that comes along with it saved my shoot as I was out of juice on my E8 batteries with no way to recharge quickly. I popped six readily-available AA's in and finished off the video shoot with no problems. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 2, 2010

    Double the number of shots, shoot vertically easitly

    0 5/5 Plankwing - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Canon Battery Grip BG-E8 (Electronics) I bought the T2i for my wife. This is the eighth EOS camera we've bought; the first two were film SLR, the T2i is the sixth DSLR. We've bought the battery grips for all eight when we bought each camera. They double the number of shots as well as make vertical shooting much easier. Unless one is put off by the extra weight, our opinion is the battery grips are must-have accessories. Example: May of this year she shot over 800 photos in one day (and I shot over 1100 with my 7D) yet all batteries showed over 1/2 charge remaining. We were shooting birds from blinds (with gimbals on tripods) and the zoom-lens collars allowed rotating to either vertical or horizontal and the shutter releases on the battery grips allowed vertical shooting without having to twist our hands to reach the shutter releases on the camera bodies. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 7, 2010

    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.

    Great value, but beware.

    I bought one of these grips based on the stellar reviews here and elsewhere. It arrived today and I was pleased to see that appearance-wise, the reviews were true. It looks every bit as good as the OEM Canon item. I have to wonder if any of the previous reviewers have tried to use this device with the optional AA battery tray. I did and almost fried my camera with it, so I can only give it 1 star. I attached the grip to my brand new 60D and was impressed by how well it fit. I placed 6 brand new AA batteries into the grip's tray being very careful to notice the orientation symbols in the plastic. I slid it into the grip and proceeded to turn the camera on. Nothing. Confused, I removed the grip from the camera then removed the battery tray from the grip. It was so hot I couldn't even touch it.

    5 stars because it's so inexpensive

    I received the Meike BG-E9 as shown on the product page even though the invoice did not mention a brand name and the vendor refers to it as the Neewer, which is a different model. It fits and works perfectly. It matches the Canon grip exactly in form and function. Except for a slight difference in the texture of the rubber it would be hard to tell the difference without actually handling it. It is lightweight but not alarmingly so, it's hefty enough to feel secure.

    WHY WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON THE ORIGINAL!

    AMAZING ITEM! I originally purchased a new Canon BG-E9 on January 15, 2011 from a well known camera shop in Boston and paid over $[...] for it after tax. I then decided to purchase this item and did it with skepticism because I figured, "How can an item which is about $[...] less perform the same?" Well my answer came today in the mail (fast shipping!). The item is almost identical to the over-priced Canon original. The grip is very comfortable. The batteries load exactly the same as a Canon, all accessories are identical, and all of the hand grip functions are identical. By adding a Canon hand strap, which I purchased separately with the Canon BG-E9, I now have a camera which I can strap comfortably around my hand and turn the camera counter-clockwise to shoot those tough vertical shots. The only way to describe this Meike Battery Grip is "Wow"! The original Canon grip has been successfully returned and this one will replace it!

    Works great on the D5100

    0 4/5 Arturo Cosio - 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. 0 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.

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...

    Quality BG-E8 Grip from a trusted seller

    I have purchased from this seller before which is why I bought this BG-E8 Vivitar battery grip from them. Great sellers with quality products that they guarantee.The grip works great. I have had battery grips and motor drives from major camera manufacturers for 30+ years. I have also had after market battery grips from other than the major camera manufacturers. They all work just fine if you take care of them and none of them will hold up with constant abuse.This BG-E8 grip from Goja is well made and all the functions seem to work just like the Canon brand, and Goja has a one year warranty anyway so no worries.If I had money to burn, I would always buy the accessories from the original manufacturers but I don't feel like investing that much in something that holds batteries and that I will use only when I need the extended battery life.This grip does make the camera easier to hold if you happen to have larger hands or like a firm grip on... 5/5 Suzanne Kammerer "gadget queen" (Nashville) - See all my reviews, June 23, 2014

    This feels exactly like the real Canon product

    0 5/5 phongsta (San Francisco, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vivitar BG-E8 Battery Grip for Canon EOS Rebel T5i T4i T3i T2i DSLR Cameras (Canon BG-E8 Replacement) + MagicFiber Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth (Electronics) Works very well. This is way more cost efficient than spending $3 Canon dollars ($300) on a Canon-branded battery grip. This feels exactly like the real Canon product. The buttons and shutter button work very well with Canon's dSLR systems. It came with a holder for two BG-E8 battery slots as well as double AA spacers. It also includes a handy pocket to keep the battery slots for safe keeping.It definitely doubled my shooting times. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 25, 2014
