    Default ebay battery grip

    Hi all, I came across Canon 60D battery grip and selling for $80++. I know it can be imitation but my question is, is there gonna any effect on my cam if I just proceed and purchase?

    Thanks...

    Maybe your cam will go running away and hide in a corner because you cheated on it with an eBay hand grip!! :P

    Purchasing the hand grip will not have an effect on your cam. It's using it that is the test.

    As to whether or not the grip will work correctly, there's only one way to find out...

    Some 3rd party grips doesnt fit well with the body. The shutter bitton also may not feel as good as original. Its better to see the physical grip to analyze if you really like the quality. Better buy locally

    Then get a local 3rd party one.

    eBay $80+ not worth it. Have u factor in shipment cost?

    U only save a few tens. Forget it

    Just look for 2nd hand one on BNS. some of these china made fakes the insides not soldered properly, like ppl say might explode might not.

    up to you, if u wanna sacrifice your 60D to save 100 on an original.
