To Grip or Not To Grip?
Jun 7, 2011

Just curious how many 7D users have battery grips and actually use it more than 50% of the time. I have an original Canon BG and since I purchased, it has been with my camera for about 60-70% of the time. The only times I remove it is when I want my gear to be lighter. But then again using a Blackrapid camera strap makes the weight more easy to bear hence since then I seem to not mind the weight anymore.

Don't you feel that the 7D seems more "balanced" with the battery grip specifically when using long/heavy lenses?
