Enjoy more shooting time and firmer control of your EOS 70D digital SLR with this Canon battery grip. The BG-E14 attaches to the bottom of your camera, allowing you greater comfort when snapping photos from vertical as well as horizontal positions. This grip features integrated control buttons for easily accessing your 70D's shutter release and camera settings in a vertical orientation. It also gives you the choice of operating the camera with up to two optional LP-E6 batteries, the optional ACK-E6 AC Adapter Kit, or even 6 "AA" batteries (not included).

Features

Overview: The BG-E14 Battery Grip is designed for the Canon EOS 70D digital SLR camera. Included with the battery grip are two battery magazines: the BGM-E14L which can hold up to two LP-E6 Lithium-Ion battery packs, and the BGM-E14A which holds six "AA" batteries. No batteries are included with the battery grip. When installed on the EOS 70D, the BG-E14 adds approximately 1-3/4" to the overall height of the camera. A protective pouch is included for carrying the unused battery magazine.

Installation: After removing the battery and battery compartment from the camera, the BG-E14 mounts to the bottom of the camera, held in place by threading the attachment screw into the camera's tripod insert. An additional tripod insert is provided on the bottom of the grip. One or two LP-E6 batteries can be installed into the Battery Grip. When two batteries are installed in the magazine, power is supplied simultaneously from both batteries, effectively doubling the battery life. In the event the rechargeable batteries are not available for use, you can power the camera with six "AA" batteries in the BGM-E14A battery magazine.

Battery Life: Using the BG-E14 on the EOS 70D camera, the battery capacity is as follows:

Viewfinder Shooting Dual LP-E6 Battery Packs Six "AA" Alkaline Batteries
Conditions No Flash 50% Flash No Flash 50% Flash
At 73°F (23°C) 2600 1840 490 320
At 32°F (0°C) 2400 1700 90 50

Using Household Power: To connect to a household power outlet, the optional AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6 (sold separately) should be used. The adapter kit's DC coupler fits into one of the LP-E6 slots in the Battery Grip.

Controls: The Battery Grip is equipped with several controls, conveniently placed for use when the camera is in the vertical (portrait orientation) position. The controls include a shutter button, multi-function button, multi-controller, main dial, AF Start button, AF point selection button, AE Lock button, and a vertical grip operation switch. With the switch in the Off position, the controls on the battery grip are no longer active; you should use the controls on the camera body.

Optional Hand Strap: The Battery Grip has a mount for the optional Hand Strap E2. The Hand Strap provides a more secure grip when using the Battery Grip on the camera.

Weight: The BG-E14 weighs approximately 10.4 oz./295 g (without batteries or battery magazine).
