This large capacity battery grip is powered by two Battery Pack LP-E6, six AA-size/LR6 batteries or an optional AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6. It features a variety of operating controls such as shutter button, Main Dial, multi-controller, AF point selection button, AE lock/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button. This is idea for high volume and easy vertical shooting.
This review is from: Canon BG-E11 (5261B001) Battery Grip for EOS 5D Mark III Digital Camera
Pros: Don't know how I ever got along without it! Allows you to hold the camera in portrait orientation and still access all your controls. The extra battery power is just a bonus for me.
Cons: Adds size and weight, of course. The joystick is a bit touchy, especially when compared to the on-camera stick. I often accidentally reset focus point to the center because I click in on it 2 or 3 times while trying to move the point.
Other Thoughts: Makes your camera look even more impressive.
