I know that the product description says that it fit but I generally prefers first hand report. So here it is, it fits my T4i perfectly. I'm currently charging the two battery and I will report back here in a few months if I remember to, heh. My T4i feels even more 'pro'

Video is just a visual demonstration of how the grip come together and fit.
(my first video review so I know I can do better, heh)

A must have accessory for the Canon T4i, January 2, 2013



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: Photive PH-BGE8 Battery Grip With 2 Extra Replacement LP-E8 Batteries For Rebel T4i, EOS 650D, T2 i/ EOS 550D T3i Digital SLR Bundle (Camera)


This battery grip is a must have accessory if you own the Canon T4i.
1. The camera itself is a bit on the small side so if you have medium to large hands, holding the camera is somewhat awkward. With the battery grip attached to the camera, the length of the hand grip is extended by a good 1.5 inch and makes the camera very comfortable to hold.
2. The grip has a shutter release button on the bottom. When you take pictures in portrait mode(vertical), you can still hold the camera on the right side which is more comfortable.
3. Add this battery grip and a 40mm STM "pancake" lens to your Canon T4i and you've got the coolest looking DSLR around. If people don't look too closely, they would think you're using a Canon D1X (wink)
4. The two batteries that come with the kit are so so. They don't hold as much charge as a Canon battery; so 2 of those replacements is the equivalent of 1 Canon battery.

My original shipment from Butterfly Photo was lost in transit and Amazon was of no help at all in resolving the matter. It took another 10 days for Butterfly Photo to send me a replacement which I eventually received. Thank you Butterfly Photo for your good customer service. Amazon, your customer service sucks!

It"s a pretty well built grip, but after all the wear I've put on mine it's still going strong. The only thing that doesn't work anymore is the Aperture button, but for me I don't care for that button. Another problem I encountered with the grip is that it doesn't always tell you the exact battery percentage, but it's close and it would be nice if they could fix this in their newer models if they could do that. Over-all I give this grip a 4/5. Due to battery not always being consistent it loses a star. I would recommend this grip to anyone who would want to save a ton of money and not pay Canon their ridiculous prices.

This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens 32GB Package 6 (Electronics)


The bundle is marginally worth the extra dollars. I would buy it all separately next time. The extra battery and battery charger is a great idea. The extras are both supposed to be compatible, however, the voltage and amps are ever so slightly different that I wonder about interchangeability. After about 3 weeks and 300+ great photos, the camera no longer would stay powered up. It would turn on briefly enough that one could see that the battery indicator showed fully charged and then the camera would power down. I tried the extra battery, same result. There are many EOS users out there that have contributed to various user forums about the same problem. Solutions ranged from pulling the battery to pulling the lens and the battery to pulling the memory card. Great, that's all I want is a camera in which I have to do resets of some form. Although the camera was purchased from Amazon, it was through Cardinal Camera. I sent them an e-mail and they responded immediately. They decided to send me a new battery and charger thinking that it sounded like a battery problem. They said if that didn't work to call Canon Service. The battery arrived in just a few days. The new battery made no difference, so I boxed up the camera, insured it and sent it via Fed-ex to Canon. So now I am out for the boxing/shipping/insurance and don't have my camera. Canon said that they typically take 7-10 after it arrives to service it. So the story could end well. Now I will wonder when it will give out again. This is the downside of not buying from a local camera dealer. Will update!
August 23, 2013: Canon Service does keep you informed about what is happening and notifies you when they are shipping it back to you. The repair was at no charge. They replaced the circuit board. Works well today, but will now always wonder when/if it will fail again and how much it will cost me if it fails outside of warranty.

Tremendous image quality, some usability caveats, August 1, 2012



This review is from: EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Canon USA) (Body) (Electronics)


If your livelihood doesn't depend on the capture of fast objects, this will give you 95% of the image quality of the 5D III or 1D X. It's a major upgrade to the original 5D, though marginally inferior to the new 6D.

I bought a 5D II to replace a 50D and a 40D. I've also used a 7D professionally. The latter three bodies have higher framerates, superior AF tracking, and a higher pixel density that benefits distant subjects. The 5D II is preferable for any other purpose if you can swing the cost of lenses that'll do justice across the frame to such enormous resolution.

HANDLING:

This is a 50D-generation camera, so the learning curve from that one (and the 40D) is essentially nil. A handful of custom functions differ. The original 5D is a bigger jump; button placement is about the same on the new model, but the menu system has been completely revised (for the better). The 40D/50D have marginally lower weight, smaller size, and a superior grip. Buttons have a positive click. The 5D II has mushy buttons that activate at some indeterminate point.

In use, the 5D II's viewfinder is massively larger than the tunnel-like crop bodies. This pulls you into the scene, though framing is actually easier with the smaller finders. Balancing that is comparatively lethargic shutter and mirror response. The 40D/50D are 40% quicker on this front; the difference between 220ms and 160ms. You can't afford a lazy reaction time with this body.

I've also detected a rare playback hesitation. I tend to a snap a shot and immediately press play if it doesn't appear on the screen. For perhaps 1 shot in 40, my 5D II has been unresponsive to that button for seconds at a time after the shot. The image appears eventually. The 40D/50D are impossible to trip up like this. This smacks of a software glitch, though I may query Canon at some point to verify.

Exposure seems less reliable in difficult lighting. Set to evaluative metering, the 5D II tends to overexpose dark scenes and underexpose backlit people. It's not that clever. I've had to rely on EC and spot metering modes more than with the 40D.

Like the 40D/50D, Auto-ISO is next to useless, so you end up fiddling with settings more than with, say, the 5D III, 7D, or 1D X. In aperture priority, Auto-ISO will set a shutter to the lens focal length or 20% less. Prone to hand-shake? Too bad. In shutter priority, it'll start dropping your chosen shutter when it reaches ISO 3200. That's the maximum ISO it'll use in any mode. And in manual mode, Auto-ISO isn't; it just fixes itself to ISO 400. So if you want to control your depth of field and shutter and the let the ISO dynamically adjust, you're SOL on this body. Major oversight.

Note that this body doesn't have a popup flash. I'm not lamenting the absence, it's always been a bone to casual shooters more than a serious tool. Max sync speed for most Canon bodies is 1/250, so it only worked for outdoor fill with narrow apertures. Indoors as a main light source, the tiny size and close proximity to the lens led to red eyes and a flat, unflattering high-contrast look. A much preferable setup for event photography pairs a 430EX or 580EX, ideally diffused or aimed to bounce off a nearby surface.

Nitpicking aside, the 5D II handles as well as any recent Canon DSLR. It's much quicker if you take the time to configure it to your preferences.

FOCUS:

Better than expected. The 40D/50D have 9 cross-points. The 5D II has one center cross-point, 8 outer single-axis points, and 6 invisible AF assist points near the center point. In practice, the 5D II is a center-point camera unless you're shooting at wide apertures (f/2 or lower).

Center-point AF is very accurate and hits in almost any lighting. Better than the 40D/50D (and even the 1D IV, I've heard) when the lights dim. The only environment where I've had trouble grabbing focus had an exposure of ISO 25600, f/2, 1/50.

Surround-point accuracy is questionable. This is the major weakness of the 5D II. You'll want to use wide-aperture lenses like the 85/1.8 and 50/1.4 to take advantage of the thinner depth-of-field and superior foreground/background blur that full-frame offers. These apertures punish focus-recompose, so you need to use the outer points for off-center compositions. They're fast enough, but not consistent or accurate. If your results are critical, take a lot of refocused safety shots.

Focus tracking is surprisingly decent with a high-contrast subject that you can hold exactly in the center of the viewfinder, provided you've enabled the invisible assist points with CF III.7. Once your object starts straying to the outer points, all bets are off; the 40D/50D excel here. Still, contrary to expectation, the 5D II can follow moving objects. The outer point accuracy was a greater letdown.

STILLS IMAGE QUALITY:

Excellent. Per-pixel...

One of the few REAL DSLRs!, August 25, 2012



Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)


This review is from: EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Canon USA) (Body) (Electronics)


Waited several years for the price on the Canon 5D Mark ll to come down in price. Now that the Mark lll has been on the market for some time I finally purchased the reduced price Mark ll. I previously owned a Canon EOS A2 now 22 years old and the features of the Mark ll made the transition seamless. I also had two lenses with the A2 that now fit the Mark ll and had a Compact Flash card from an Olympus C5060 WZ that will work as well. There are two serious photographer types in the world. Those who swear by Canon and those who swear by Nikon. Hands down I'd choose the Canon any day of the week. If you are looking for digital images of fine quality that can be printed @ 300 dpi to a 12 X 18 print this is the camera for you.

Cannon can't make AF to save their life!, April 11, 2013



This review is from: EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Canon USA) (Body) (Electronics)


This is the most frustrating camera body ever - I have a lot of L-glass and find myself squeezing the trigger while it sits there trying to AF forever! I have tried all the tricks in the trade to get it to work and still miss 90% of timed shots. Even after it shoots, the images are soft - never crystal sharp. I don't recommend this camera to ANYONE!
