    No it does not affect your pictures. Battery grip only serves as an extra power source for longer shoots. It also provides the extra grip and it makes the camera looks bigger thus the more "pro" look... hehe

    The battery grip also makes taking pics in the portrait orientation more comfortable as in the conventional way.

    Do you feel like the camera is too small in your hands? The grip can add an extra bit of comfort for some people making it easier to hold. Do you plan to get other lenses? It will help balance large lenses (aka 70-200 variety). But, this is all subjective.

    i have to disagree on this, i tried my fren's 450D w/ Batt grip. I gota say it weighs alittle bit more then my D90 w/out batt grip!

    Its really really light-weight, and IMO a real deal for every 450/400D users out there.
    Hsteric Motion media ;a memorable experience.

    If a 400D with grip weighs a little heavy, then might as well just stick with a compact or compact prosumer.

    it gives a better feel when shooting portraits.
    but... can do without it lah

    if you're getting the xxxD series for compactness.. maybe a grip would seem heavy to you. cheers
