can aftermarket battery grip damage camera?
5 months ago

I have heard of people saying that aftermarket grip 'may' damage your camera as they have less protection against electricity.

I do agree it may happen (as anything can happen with anything) but I have not seen any posts or feedback it actually damaged one's camera. There were many posts that the grip itself broke or failed to function after sometime but not the camera itself.

Did anyone experience or seen the aftermarket battery grip affected on the camera?
