The third party grips have a reputation of lasting from 3-6 months, depending on use. Just buy 10 of them and you'll be set for 3 years.
sources for such a bold claim?
i would love you write not such biased nonsense all the time about third party gear, you propably have never used yourself or any experience with.
i bought my 5D MK2 over 4 years ago and the BG grip i bought for it is still absolutely fine.
the phottix BG for my 550D is from 2010 and the 550D is my cheap "throw around" camera.
the BG is also still absolutely fine.
and im not a weekend shooter....
Why do you want a petal hood? Just get the ET-60 that's designed for it...
The EW-63II might fit, it's designed for the 28 f/1.8 (among others) which shares the 58mm filter threads, so it should be close in size. Won't be as useful, since it's not really deep enough though. That's probably the closest you'll get... or just take the ET-60 and cut it to a petal shape if it's that important.
No, the EW-63II won't fit - the number in the hood designates the mount diameter for the hood itself, and a hood with a 63mm diameter hood won't fit on a lens that's got a 60mm hood mount.
As stated, just get the ET-60 or a knock-off version of the same.
ve just looked at this adaptor for the tamron and in the description it seems to start off by saying that even though it will be manual focus, it will confirm focus by the indicator but lower down it says it doesnt confirm focus?
Too much, too late. Swapped out my OEMs for these long ago...
The shop where I am getting the 1D X does not sell any spare batteries, and my Google skills seem to have deserted me over night. How much is a spare battery for the 1D X, and what model number are they please?
If you looking for a bargain 70-300mm and are in the USA the Tamron 70-300mmVC is $349 after a post purchase rebate on amazon.
I picked one up just before Christmas on a similar rebate as a backup. It is a good deal at that price but it is larger than the canon 70-300 and arguably better.
Last week I received a battery grip for my 5D Mark III from eBay, along with two batteries, all made by DSTE from China. The battery grip feels very solid and is identical in style and function to the Canon BG-E11, having the same buttons and side loading battery tray. It also comes with the AA battery tray. Communication with the camera worked flawlessly, and it reported that a BG-E11 was connected. The camera also reported individual battery information with the grip attached.
The DSTE batteries are 2600mAh and fully decoded. You can charge them in the original Canon charger, and they show battery information in the camera.
For $72 and free shipping, I would highly recommend this grip and also the DSTE batteries for those price conscious photographers who aren't afraid to use third party accessories.
