Anyone use a battery grip on their dslr? Thinking about adding one to my xsi for the extra size to hold onto and to get more battery life. Never had one before though and not sure if its gonna be too dang bulky.
I use the Opteka on my XSi...got good reviews and was pretty cheap compared to the Canon, plus came with 2 batteries. The extra life is great, and having the extra set of controls makes pictures in portrait that much easier.
I have the targus one and honestly, I wouldn't skimp out and get an offbrand one. Save up and get the Canon one. Mine is falling apart, it's wobbly and the adhesive on the grip part is coming off. If I had to do it again I would have spent the extra few for the Canon brand.
I was thinking about getting one until I realized I can get 6GB worth of shots before I need to change it out. I just carry 2 off brand batteries as backups. They are 2000mAh and seem to last as long or longer than the stock Canon battery. I got 2 on eBay for less than $10 delivered.
