Fitted with a vertical shutter release, the Hahnel HC-5D Pro Battery Grip makes shooting with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II in a vertical position just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. Having the vertical grip allows the user to shoot from a more comfortable and stable position and therefore gives easier handling with larger lenses.The HC-5D comes with a built-in Infrared Receiver and Infrared Remote Control, allowing remote shooting within a range of up to 10-12m. The Remote Control Transmitter provides autofocus before shutter release, continuous shooting, and bulb function for as long as the button remains pressed.Power is doubled through multiple power sources. One or two Li-Ion batteries (LP-E6 or HL-E6)* or 6 AA Mignon alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries can be used. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the cameras movie mode or LiveView mode.Built-in Power Management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency.
Hahnel HC-5D MkII Battery Grip
The grip is fitted with a vertical shutter release, making shooting with the camera in a vertical position is just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. Power is doubled through multiple power sources. One or two Li-Ion batteries or 6 AA Mignon alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries can be used.This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode.
Built-in Power Management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency. The Power Management detects use of Li-ion or AA batteries automatically. Having the vertical grip allows the user to shoot from a more comfortable and stable position and therefore gives easier handling with larger lenses.
Some Canon DSLRs do not have an integrated infrared receiver and only offer the remote control as an expensive separate accessory. hähnel has managed to create the perfect solution by introducing a battery grip with an infrared remote control system. This enables such users to experience the benefits of a fully integrated remote control system, even if their particular camera does not offer such an advantage.
Vertical Shutter Release
The “Infra/Infrapro” Ranges are fitted with innovative vertical shutter release, making shooting with the camera in a vertical position just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. HC-50D Infrapro features an additional set of controls, which replicates the camera’s original controls.
The BatteryGrips come with an Infrared Remote Control, allowing remote shooting within a range of up to 10-12m and reducing camera shake. The Remote control transmitter provides autofocus before shutter release and continuous shutter release or bulb function for as long as the button remains pressed.
Built-in Infrared Receiver
The “Infra/Infrapro” Range is specially designed for digital SLRs without an integrated infrared remote receiver. This gives an added benefit of a remote control facility to SLRs without an existing built-in system.
Flexible Power Solution
Some of the BatteryGrips offer a choice of 2 power sources: 1. 1 or 2 Li-ion battery packs offer maximum performance. 2. Rechargeable Ni-MH or alkaline AA batteries can be as a backup solution.
With 2 Li-ion Battery Packs the available power is approximately doubled for longer, uninterrupted camera use. With the BatteryGrip in place you avoid running out of power at a critical moment.
Built-in Power Management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency. 1 or 2 Li-ion Battery Packs, even at different charge levels, can be used. The Power Management detects use of Li-ion or AA batteries automatically.

There are cheaper battery grips available without the remote control.
Remote control had a dead battery. With a replacement battery it worked. Informed Amazon, less than 24hrs a new battery arrived! Many thanks for the seller and Amazon team being prompt, considerate and courteous.
Point to note - If the battery housing was ergonomically constructed (with contours for the fingers)as similar to other Hahnel battery grips this would have been lot better i.e. Nikon D300.
For the price it is an excellent product. Fully recommend it.
For me a battery grip is a must in the studio where one is working in portrait orientation.
Nice piece of kit from a good supplier.
To fit, one simply loads up the batteries into the grip (not supplied note) and then removes the main battery fromthe camera, removing the cover flip using the handy little clip on the inside and slots in the grip (there is a storage compartment built in for the battery door too). You can also use mains power using a DR-E6 DC Coupler if you are doing a long studio shoot.
The point is that this makes portrait shooting much easier as the there is a vertical shutter release button, as well as an AE/FE Control Button, AF Selection and AF On/Off button.
In addition there is a built in infrared remote control and unit (some 5D's dont have this feature built in so its an added bonus that this is present).
All in all, a useful piece of kit for the semi serious camera buff. Price wise it compares well with the Canon own model - coming in a lot cheaper than the c £200 mark for the Canon Battery Grip.
Definitely worth having on your shopping/wish list!
It's light, so it doesn't add much to the overall weight of the camera, and it functions perfectly well so far! Has a handy space to store the battery-cover from the camera.
One down side to it, and the reason it's not 5* is that there are 2 small bits of plastic in the middle that keep the batteries pushed down when you open the cover. Mine snapped off after a couple of uses, so now the batteries bounce out when I open it. It doesn't effect it while I'm using it though, so I'm not overly bothered.
