Product Description

#High quality product with big discount from the original one.#More comfortable vertical shooting. The BG-E9 Battery Grip is an optional power pack designed specifically for the Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera. It holds up to two LP-E6 battery packs or six AA Batteries, offering double-length shooting time. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's Movie Mode, Live View Mode and other operating modes that use more power. Furthermore, the BG-E9 provides full vertical shooting controls, which can be independently turned on or off as the photographer needs to enhance camera handling, especially for shooting vertical pictures.In addition, the BG-E9 features a shutter button, control dial, AE FE Lock, exposure compensation and AF point selection buttons for use in the vertical/portrait orientation.

Not perfect, but fine for the price Nov. 9 2011
By Asad - Published on Amazon.com

After looking at the prices of a genuine Canon BG-E9 battery grip, I did a bunch of research into various options. Most of my research said that the MeiKe brand third-party grips were among the better choices. Here are my initial impressions after having it for a couple days:

The good:
-The grip fits well, very tight with no looseness or wobbling.
-The grip seems to function as it should, for the most part (see below).

The indifferent:
-The shutter button feels a little different than the 60D shutter button -- it takes a slightly longer travel to get a half-press, and a full-press requires a little less force and has a less distinct click than the one on the body. Not a big deal.

The not so good:
-The appearance and texture of the plastic and rubber don't really match the Canon stuff. The plastic is a little bit shinier and is a very slightly different shade of black. The rubber, on the other hand, is less shiny, with a less-pronounced texture, but is actually softer and grippier than the Canon rubber.
-The fit and finish is, predictably, not as good -- the rubber inserts don't fit quite as precisely as the rubber on the body, and in some spots there's a tiny amount of glue visible (though not enough to come over the rubber or the external plastic).
-The duplicate main control dial on the grip is stiffer and harder to turn than the one on the body, and has a different texture on the knob that's a little slipperier for your finger.
-When the battery readout works (see below), it reads both batteries as having the same number of shots taken even if they originally had different numbers (for example, if I put in batteries that, when read individually by the camera, had 31 and 34 shots taken, when I bring up the battery info screen on the camera they both read as having 34 shots taken)

The bad:
-There's something a little flaky in the connections between the grip and the body. For example, when I first installed the grip, the camera could not read the battery's charge information. After removing and reinstalling the grip, it seemed to work fine -- for one of the batteries. Removing and reinstalling led to the initial problem again. After a couple more cycles, it got to a point where it could read the charge state of both batteries in the grip. This is probably not a big deal if you plan on installing the grip and leaving it there for long periods of time -- just get it in a working state and leave it. But if you plan on adding/removing the grip often, for different shooting situations, say, it could get frustrating. This flakiness only seems to affect the battery charge information, not the other functionality of the grip (providing power or the use of the vertical controls).

The unknown:
-Haven't used the AA battery tray. Based on other reviews I'm sure it will work fine.
-Long-term durability -- we'll see.

Overall, I think the good outweighs the bad at this price. I think you can't go wrong as long as you're not expecting perfection. If you want that, spend 4-5x as much and get the Canon grip.

Taking the risk paid off Jan. 25 2011
By G. Mortillaro - Published on Amazon.com

I just bought a 60D to replace my XTi, I had all the accessories for the XTi and I got use to them. Some stuff was compatible, other stuff wasn't. Obviously the grip was not compatible. I was hesitant to buy this since I knew nothing of the company and it had no reviews, but I am glad I did. The Canon grip is $180...more than 3 times the price of this item.
The look and layout of the grip is the same as the real deal, but the build is off. Not that it's a bad thing, but you can tell it's not the real thing from its weight. It terms of function though it's on par with the BGE9. I don't think I could shoot without this grip now that I have it. I have been spoiled with all the nifty toys I get for my cameras.

Love it! Oct. 18 2011
By Jason P. Kustra - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great addition to my gear and adds a nice bit of balance to the 60D. For the price you can't go wrong. It's durable, inexpensive, gives you several different options for batteries and did I mention a great price? When I upgrade to my next camera, I will definitely consider another one from this manufacturer.

For using your camera in both landscape and portrait orientations, this gives you a lot more freedom to switch back and forth without the fatigue of raising your arm all the time.

On a side note, this does add additional weight to the camera but not very much compared to the convenience. I ditched my neck strap and purchased a hand strap made specifically for cameras with battery grips and it feels like you're carrying around a point and shoot(i.e. eliminates the heavy feeling).

Great deal April 15 2011
By Mister E - Published on Amazon.com

This grip seems great so far. It is much cheaper than the Canon grip, yet has the same functionality. The build quality is pretty good and it fits well onto the 60D body. The battery tray is a little tight and the shutter release doesn't have a great feel, but these are minor issues.
