Battery Grip Advice, Please
May 10, 2012

I am going to buy a Canon 60D with Canon 15-85mm lens.

I frequently photograph flowers in vertical position, and read that a battery grip helps to use a camera in this position. I found the Canon BG-E9 Battery Grip for the Canon EOS 60D on the internet, and would like to hear from those of you who have experience using it. Here are some questions, too:

1. Much of my shooting is done with a tripod. Does the battery grip remain on the camera when it is affixed to the tripod?

2. Should I buy a wrist strap or use the shoulder strap that comes with the Canon 60D? Which is best for use with battery grip?

Many thanks for your advice.
