Extra grip, extra power & great balance
on 24 January 2008
I have used my Canon 20D for the last 2 years, and have found the battery grip to give essential balance when using my regular 24-70mm L series lens, and so many times when on location, the extra power provided by the 2nd battery has saved my shoot. I do carry 2 spare battery with me as well!
The extra focusing controls are a real benefit, when shooting with the camera "on its side", there are duplicated on top of the camera body, but having them just under your fingers is a great feature of the design.
Clearly it does add some extra bulk and weight, but I cannot live without mine!
