The dedicated battery grip for the Canon EOS 550D 600D which allows you to use one or two batteries. With two batteries the already long life is doubled and this will be especially useful if using movie mode. The Digitek Battery Grip also has vertical control for portraits.
The advantage of using battery Grip:
- More Power – two batteries instead of one means recharging half as much.It is also great when shooting long events,party. No hunting for and changing batteries at key moments!
- Second Shutter Release Button
- Weight and Balance – two batteries weigh more than one and the grip itself adds a little weight and size to the camera. While this could be seen as a disadvantage (and I’m sure it would be in some circumstances) . It feels like the camera is sitting well in your hand and that I’m somehow more solid when taking shots. I’ve read people argue about battery grips helping combat camera shake and previously didn’t see how something heavier in a hand would help – but again I ‘feel’ like there might be some truth to the argument.
