Recommended. It not only serve as a vertical grip, it also give you the option to use AA batteries as power source or use 2x Li-ion batteries. But it makes your cam heavier and much bulkier.

it is better that u get a battery grip =D

firstly... you got more battery life for shooting... you got a choice for x2 Li-ion batt or 6 AA batts... secondly... a firmer hold for vertical shoot...

Do correct me if i am wrong =D

I second that. I am using 400D with grip. serves the purpose of extra batt life and vertical grip. But IMHO, its also an additional weight which I would suggest you get a hand sling. I already have finger cramps holding the cam for wholeday taking orientation pictures.;)

Recommended to battery grip.

Firstly, it gives you double battery life. Secondly, it allows you vertical shoot without having trouble to tilt your hand for the shutter button.

Lastly, the unintended 'benefit' from using battery grip is that you'll look like a pro photographer, then when you taking photos like in the car/motor show, those models will tends to pose at your camera more cause they will think that you're a pro photographer, especially if you use a long len too. Haha...

Recommended, I am using 350D and it starts to get a bit unbalanced once lenses like the 70-200mm is mounted. I wouldnt worry about the extra weight of the battery grip, it is the unbalance feeling without the grip that would tire my hands.

Of course, taking vertical shots will be much easier.

It does not prolong battery life. You can put an extra battery into the grip, hence effectively you can take pictures for twice the duration without having to change the batteries.
