The Neewer Battery grip for the 700D is a good product for price.
personally i think spending your money a bit more wisely would be either spend a little more or see one in real life.
To break it down to it's simplest form i am going to break down my reasons why i gave it a middle rating
The build quality is cheap but it will last as long as it is not abused
The colour matching of the plastics is terrible it is like seeing a car with a different shade panel on it it is where your eyes are drown so it stands out and make it look bad
The buttons are so cheap it is like pushing marshmallows- This makes using the shutter button unusable.
The grip material applied to the bottom of the grip is very weak and degrades quickly over time.
The tripod mount on the bottom of this camera is surprising as it has held up to abuse over the 6 months or so i have owned it
it feel some what solid when attached to the camera but has a lot of give.
My final verdict is you get what you pay for.
in this case you get a battery add on pack that doesn't match your camera.
with a strong connection to the camera
the other functions are useless
only buy this if you want the extra battery power.
