    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.

    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 Amazon 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) OK, so it appears that most people are correct - the meter on the device says fully charged all the time and then your battery is dead. I have 4 batteries so I'm OK, I get 2 full vacation days (1200 pics and about 20-30 minutes of video) before the battery needs to be replaced. For the money you cannot beet it - by another pair of batteries for 1/10th of the cost of buying the Canon OEM.DO NOT THROW AWAY THE DOOR THAT YOU NEED TO REMOVE TO GET THIS DEVICE CONNECTED. You WILL need or want it later if you want to use your camera without the battery/grip pack. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 20, 2013

(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.

    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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It's not Canon, but definitely right behind!

Definitely!Okay, let's get things out and open: yes, this is NOT exactly like the Canon battery grip. Duh. It's not made by Canon and it doesn't cost $300. That said, however, this is an amazing "replica" that fits the bill just fine!I was a little concerned when I got this because of reviews that said it was all plastic and cheap and that it would screw up my camera. My fears were quickly put to rest as soon as I opened the box.I'm not one to dwell on packaging (if it comes in a brown paper bag but works great, who cares?) but the box for this was good, and the grip was wrapped in a bubble-wrap envelope.

    Very well made - excellent alternative

    So I took a chance on this one - thanks to the other good review, and I'm glad I did. The box it came in looks a bit dated and I was scared to open it. However once I did I was happy with the quality. I'm used to Nikon grips - so this is definitely lighter and less 'heavy duty' feeling (as all Canon gear is). However testing it out feels solid and I'm actually appreciating the lightweight of canon gear after I add all my accessories and spend all day with it.So! I've shot three shoots with it - one an all day 13 hour event - outside, inside, dirty trains - steadicam mounted, monopod mounted, shoulderbrace mounted and plain hand-gripped and this performed flawlessly. It REALLY makes the camera much more useable as well I should mention - it's one of those must haves. I compared it with my friend's actual canon grip and the only difference I noticed was his has the rubber grip along the battery compartment back as well as the front.That's a hugely minor thing tho... 5/5 Jayse Hansen "jayse" (Las Vegas, NV United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Product !

    0 5/5 Breeze (Jackson, MS) - See all my reviews This review is from: Zeikos ZE-NBG300 Professional Multi-Power Pack for Nikon D300/300S & D700 (Electronics) The comment from the reviewer above(Mr.Phillip) was so useful. I contemplated different brands myself but just looking at the product made me feel that its well made. So finally i got mine today and i cant be happier. Great fit and finish and your Nikon D300 recognizes the grip immediately and all the functions work great. I was wondering if the shutter release button and the scroll wheel will be as good as Nikon and yes it was.I rarely buy anything else other than a Nikon, but i thought i will give this a try and i am glad i did. The Nikon MB-D10 is a great grip too, its made of magnesium alloy and rubberized coating just like the camera, hence its expensive.If you are going to place your camera in rocks or if its going to take some beating in buses in africa or forests in the amazon, then buy the Nikon. If you are a casual user, who keeps his cameras in his bag all the time other than when its being used, then buy this one. You wont be dissapointed. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 22, 2009

This review is from: Photive Battery Grip for Canon EOS Rebel T5i, T4i, T3i, T2i (Replaces Canon BG-E8) PH-GRP550D (Apparel) I hesitated for days to make my decision about the battery grip for my Canon T3i....I was worried that by paying less then half the price of the Canon name brand I would not recieve a quality product. I was wrong. This battery grip is superb; the packaging was excellent. The grip itself looks and feels solid - it's not a cheesy plasticky looking flimsy grip. It matched my camera exactly in color and appearance and coating. Speaking of the coating on the grip - it is not just a glued strip of rubber, it is part of the equipment and cannot peel off. It worked from the moment I installed it. I love the way it looks, feels and operates, and the shutter position for taking portrait oriented pictures is wonderful. Go for it, you won't be sorry. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 26, 2012

I use a canon rebel t4i and this grip fits it like a glove. the added AA adapter may be your least used feature, however in a pinch AAs are far easier to come by than camera batteries. I use this device with a pair of OEM batteries that i found on Amazon, bringing my total batteries to four. the grips button features are excellent when framing portrait shots and it is comfortable and adds stabalizing weight to the camera. it also fits in my camera bag no problem. definitely one of my most used devices by far! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 12, 2012

This review is from: Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip for Canon T2i, T3i and T4i Digital SLR Cameras (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 Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip for Canon T2i, T3i and T4i Digital SLR Cameras (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

    Review of both Product and Seller

    My initial review started with all 5 stars. My shipment arrived two days earlier than anticipated (Yay!) and when I initially installed the grip on mt T1i it looked and felt great. So I placed the two batteries I also ordered on a charger and put my camera/ grip away to play with later. When I was finally able to try it out, I could not power my camera on with the grip. I checked each battery individually and they worked, but with both batteries in the grip it did not work. So I swapped to the 6 AA tray to see if the tray was the issue, but that failed as well. I had read that some users had issues with the battery door switch not being activiated, so I placed a piece of paper over it to override the switch. This did not work either. This was as far as I was willing to troubleshoot, so I contacted New Harbor via email. Their replies seemed slow.

    Good product - good value

    While I have only seen pictures of the very expensive Canon brand battery grip, this battery grip (made in China) seems identical and sells for a fraction of the cost of the Canon brand. Be aware that there are more and more of these type of camera products (like intervalometers, Lithium battery pacs, etc.) that seem to be identical twins of the brand name products, at a fraction of the price. Only you can decide if you want to pay over the top prices for Canon brand accessories when these alternative products are available. Particularly when it does not affect photo quality, I'll go for the cheap knock off product every time and I am very pleased with this product. To my mind the only difference between the Canon and this knock off is the HUGE price difference - period.

    Poor quality control

    I knocked off one stars due to bad quality control. What I got has a problem that should have been caught in manufacturing. The rubber grip section in front (under the lens) has a large bulge/fold in it that sticks out about 1/3". It doesn't get in the way of where I hold it but it's visually unappealing.That said...It's a well built unit. It fits well on my T1i. There's no warping as can be the case with plastic parts. The thickness of the plastic and rubber sections is good - it has a very solid feel to it. I have large hands and my camera is so much nicer to use now.With the on/off button in the on position, all additional controls work great. The wheel functions as intended, and all other buttons work fine. The two-phase focus/shutter button is a tad softer than that of the camera but I have no problem with it. It's a great feature for portrait shots.It also makes my camera look more professional, but that's not much of a... 4/5 B. Carlson - See all my reviews, July 25, 2011

    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. I had to bang the tray on the carpet to dislodge the batteries before the whole thing melted into a pile of resin.

    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! One last thing should be noted, this item, the... 5/5 Richard Thorn "muzicfromme2u" (Weymouth, MA, US) - See all my reviews, January 26, 2011

    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. The removable battery trays are built well.The glue used on the rubber smells awful but has dissipated a lot in the two days I've had this. Hopefully the smell will be gone completely in another day or so. Since I haven't done any work with it yet I'm a little concerned about the security and durability of the metal tripod mounting screw although it feels good so far.The 60D grip was so small I could only hold it with three fingers which felt strange to me.

    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. D5100 and D3100, at the power on reset time, check the existing of this chip. If the camera did not find the chip signature, it displays an error message saying "This battery cannot be used. Choose battery designated for use in this camera" and freezes.When you use two Nikon EN-EL14s for this battery grip, you should not have any problems. 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

    0 4/5 Arturo Cosio - See all my reviews This review is from: NEEWER® Pro Battery Grip for Nikon D5100 EN-EL14 DSLR Camera (Camera) 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

    So, I have re-review my last review, if that makes any sense. The seller, excellent. Kept in contact with me the past few days while I was having issues with the product. I received the product earlier than expected, which was super. However, upon opening it I received two message. First message, "Cannot use the batteries, please use batteries for this product." The two factory bought batteries weren't working, really? However, I knew from other reviews if you kept at it and did some weird technique it would work, and sure enough it worked. But it doesn't end there, when I got past that message, it had stated the my batteries, fresh and fully-charged Nikon D5100 batteries, were low, thus locking the shutter. I doubled, tripled, and quadruple checked and still no luck. So I went to an event this weekend with no grip. For $18, I would at least, expect it to work. So I contacted the New Harbor, and they were super nice about the situation and kept in contact with me.

    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.

    Quality item for the price.

    First of all, I'll start this by saying I've never used the Canon version. As a matter of fact, I've never used the Canon grips with any of my camera bodies. So this review will be focusing on how well the "NEEWER" battery grip (mine's actually branded "Voking") works for me.The built quality seems good- it has a good amount of rubbery grip, and is quite substantial in the hand. When held in the vertical position, the grip is noticeably thicker than the 70D when held in normal position- but this is fine with me. Perhaps users with smaller hands might have an issue. All of the buttons work well, but the wheel is a little more stiff than the one on the camera body (perhaps it will loosen a little over time). The shutter button has a little less throw as well, but this isn't too much of an issue for me as I use back button focusing. Used in the "normal" manner, going from focus lock to shutter release is a short distance.The battery... 5/5 C. Michaels (Arkansas) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not built quite as well as Canon's, but still very good

    The NEEWER battery grip for the 70D isn't built quite as well as the one from Canon, but it is still a great product, especially considering the price difference. It is built well enough to hold up to difficult conditions, and the attached camera is more fragile and would probably be damaged before the grip is. This is the perfect product for someone who wants to shoot vertical or double their battery life without shelling out hundreds of dollars for Canon's version. It is so much cheaper that if it does break or get damaged you can replace it many times over and still spend less than you would if you bought Canon's.Being able to run the camera with two batteries is great, but my favorite part of all vertical grips is being able to shoot in portrait orientation without twisting my wrist into uncomfortable positions for long periods of time.For those fearing damage to their cameras from an aftermarket add-on, these vertical grips are passive devices -- there... 4/5 D.

This review is from: NEEWER Battery Grip Holder For Canon EOS 70D Camera DSLR Replacement For BG-E14 (Camera) I bought this battery grip as I had used one from the same manufacturer for my Canon 60D, it worked flawlessly and I shoot sports for the local paper ( a gratis thing as I am 78 years old and been shooting sports for them and other papers since 1979) At my age I have to watch the dollar and I could not justify the Canon grip for $229.00 especially since I had used a generic grip previously. I am impressed with the fit, its perfect, and seems to work fine at this juncture of time. I have noticed on a Canon website that the Canon grip seems to be oversized, I cannot verify that, just from my reads. It is up to the buyer to get the best price, and I would rather spend the money I saved on the glass I use. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 11, 2013
