This is a Pro Battery Grip for the Canon EOS 40D/30D/20D. It can hold 6 AA batteries or two BP-511A li-ion batteries, doubling the battery capacity of your camera. Vertical shutter release button on the Battery Grip makes shooting with the camera in a vertical position much easier, adding stability to the camera. Beware that the batteries should be put into the magazine before inserting the magazine into the grip!
In this professional edition, it comes with several functional buttons as the flash above showing. It will be much convenient while using. It provides additional shutter release, main dial, AE lock/FE lock and AF point selection controls for easier vertical shooting. Having the same function as Canon BG-E2!
Very good finish and to function fully. Perfect
This is my send purchase of a battery grip this time for my 50D. I previously acquired one for my XSi and my review at that time applies just as well to the current one:rnrn"This grip looks as good as the Canon made grip. The fit and finish are accurate and it should easily withstand rugged use. The buttons, markings and electrical contacts are excellent. I am quite impressed."rnrnEnough said!rnrnCliffrose
