BG-E2 question
Nov 15, 2011


Today I acquired a second hand BG-E2 to improve the grip on my 40D, mainly when shooting vertically. It works ok for this purpose.

However, I wonder how I have to hold the camera to get a comfortable grip in landscape orientation now. Here is what I mean.

Without the grip, I get an excellent...grip!

Here are a few tries, none is satisfactory.

How do YOU hold your camera with the grip?

I must say I'm a bit disappointed. Fortunately, I only paid 50€ for this, but I must say that it's kind of odd that a gear that should improve the grip actually makes it more difficult.
