Vello BG-C2 battery grip for the Canon 5D Mark II

The Vello BG-C2 battery grip for the Canon 5D Mark II enhances the Canon 5D Mark II in several ways:

  • Makes for a more stable shooting experience using a “mass coupling” technique: the 5D Mark II is much more easily x nestled into one’s shoulder, for a very stable image tied directly to only gross body movements. See How To Hold a Camera Steady in Making Sharp Images for details.
  • Adds stability (more mass), which can help balance the camera with heavier lenses, and which can help when shooting at low shutter speeds.
  • Doubles the battery life, very useful for time lapse or long exposures or similar power-hungry applications.
  • Alternature shutter release and various other buttons.
