Should I buy aftermarket battery grip?
9 months ago

I am thinking of buying BG-E13 canon 6D battery grip and I found too many ebay

aftermarket grips that are too cheap to miss.

I have used aftermarket grip once before with my 350d and I remember it was decent

enough to fit my taste.

I will mainly use it for the sake of the looks :-P. All my previous cameras had battery grips attached and I just enjoy the completed look.

I am not too concerned about the fit and finish because I will get what I paid for but I am concerned if it will be more exposed to any electrical damage when compared to genuine product. I will only use genuine canon battery but I am not sure if the battery grip can be any harm to the camera.

I am thinking to get DSTE battery grip. Should I go ahead?
