Hey Guys

i have a big palm so the grip to my 500d is quite small,:embrass:

Probably yes.

Though in retrospect, you should have factored the ergonomics into your camera purchase to begin with...

Great grip, I just got it and freaking love it, got the 1 extra battery to complete the set, but the extra batt is not necessary as it will run on a single batt.

camera certainly feels a lot more substantial after installing it.

can, you can get it, if the height of the camera is a problem for you

if it is the DEPTH of the grip, the BG probalby would not help.

Hi, when you insert 2 batteries into the BG, does it drain one after the other or drain both at the same time?

I have a phottix BG and it will drain both at the same time if I have 2 batteries inserted. (but of course all in all it lasted around double the time of a single battery.) So just want to know if it is similiar with the canon one.

I do not have one but technically it should be both batteries are in parallel (hence same voltage) and with both batteries, can supply more power (current) to the camera body. So, both batteries will drain out at around similar time.

If I may ask how long did both batteries lasted for your usage?
