Battery Grips (OEM or third party?)
« on: April 01, 2011, 05:22:44 PM »
Okay, now i'm thinking of getting a grip for my 60D. Would it be advisable to go for alternative brands? Or should i stick with Canon's BG-E9? May advantage ba pag OEM? I'd like to think OEM grips should be more durable. Prices: 4000-6000 for other brands, Canon nasa 8000-9000. Difference nya isang battery na LP-E6. Anyone with experiences on Canon and other brands of battery grips please enlighten me on this one. Thank you!

save up a little more for the canon. quality and resale value is probably better.

madali daw masira pag third party eh. pati iba yung feel nung buttons. save nalang for an original one since hindi naman siya super necessary na accessory

yeah? hmm. reason why i wanted one was to balance out the weight pag nakakabit yung flash... bigat ng 580 kadiri yung weight. plus pag walang flash mas madali pag vert...

if you will be using it most of the time (shooting vertically) then get the OEM pero if you plan to buy just to balance the weight then i suggest to get the 3rd party.. i've been using a 3rd party grip for my 7D because i want to balance the weight too.. just make sure to test all the buttons! i still don't have problems with the grip and with my 7D! ;D get a decent 3rd party, not the grip in CD-R king! ;D

Yan din pinag-isipan ko nun bago ako bumili ng battery grip para sa 550D ko. Para sa akin mas ok ang orig canon battery grip. Mataas ang resale value saka sure ka sa quality.

Phottix ata wala pa for 60D? I've read that some 3rd party battery grips failed. Buttons ata madalas. Yeah gusto ko sana more for vertical shots more than the balance issue. Anyone using i-smart? So far eto palang ata nakikita kong 3rd party grip for the 60D?

I was also in the market for a grip for my D300 and cam across an article which stated that the reason for the MBD-10 being so expensive was that it was also made out of magnesium unlike 3rd party which were mainly plastic.  I felt that paying the premium would be worth it in the long run to avoid any flex and vibration.  Sure enough, the camera felt rock solid when mounted on the tripod with the adapter plate attached to the grip.

I always thought OEM grips are more durable. Have an OEM grip for my 50D which got stuck on the body and cant remove it anymore! Grip was bought brand new and the warranty just expired when this happened. I am not a pro and hardly use my cameras . I am thinking now that the 3rd party grips are more attractive due to the much lower price. I have also used OEM grips on my D80 and D200s - problems with these is that they cannot seem to use AA batteries ( a fully charged set of AAs lasts only a dozen shots). So much for the better quality of the OEMs.

Yup i'll agree with the build mas ok sureball oem. Concern ko rin kasi i think even with 3rd party issue naman yung using AA's. In the end bibili pa rin ng battery na para sa cam talaga. Tanong din dun kung OEM battery or yung hacked. Scary din kasi baka magkaron ng problem yung fake battery tas masira yung system. So d ko pa rin alam kung ano talaga heheh

I've been using 3rd party batteries since 2006 with no problems at all. Some even seem to have a longer battery life than the OEM batteries.

for me mas ok kung mag OEM ka. mataas value kapag ibebenta mo sya ulit hehe. tsaka maganda tignan kung canon rin yung grip. bought mine last month. siguro 2 weeks nakong shoot ng shoot hindi parin nauubos battery hahaha. basta make sure original rin yung extra battery mo. baka mamaya mag leak kapag fake yung battery. tulad nung mga 800 petot sa quiapo hehe
