Extend your shooting power with a battery grip. Functional yet ergonomic, the Hahnel battery grip for the Canon EOS 550D / 600D / 650D / 700D will improve your handling of the camera and double the available power.
The grip is fitted with a vertical shutter release, making shooting with your EOS camera in a vertical position is just as comfortable as shooting horizontally. Power is doubled through multiple power sources. One or two LP-E8 Li-Ion batteries or six AA Mignon alkaline or rechargeable Ni-MH batteries can be used.This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's Movie Mode or Live View mode.
Built-in power management regulates the power output to the camera for maximum efficiency. This management system will automatically detect which power source is in use and allows you to use batteries at a different charge level simultaneously.
Having the vertical grip allows the user to shoot from a more comfortable and stable position and therefore gives easier handling with larger lenses.
Also supplied with an infrared remote control for wireless line-of-sight remote shooting.Compatible with:
EOS 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D
