What are those battery-holders?! A battery grip, or?!

Well they are not really a "grip" as they sit on the bottom of the camera. They do have a 2nd shutter release for vertical shots & a zoom lever.  I find them indispensable.  Never leave home without one!

The C-5060 and the C-7070 use the B-HLD20:

The 8080 used the B-HLD30:

They hold 2 BLM1 batteries.

As far as I know the C-5050 never had a dual battery holder.
