3rd party BG-E9
« on: December 30, 2012, 02:00:14 AM »
So I have this 3rd party BG-E9 grip.  I've had it for probably a little over a year now.  However, I dropped it around 8 months ago and the lock for the battery compartment broke.  that discouraged me a little.  But that's not my problem.  I picked it up again to try and use it (still works and all.  I missed the grip), but there was a sticky substance on it.  No one has spilt anything or it or the likes.  I cleaned it and it was not sticky anymore.  But then it's stayed on my shelf for another 2 months with no use and still there's this sticky substance on it.  i'm just curious as to what's happening.  not that it doesn't contain a battery in side as I alternate them now in my 60D (and 5D 3).  It's just really interesting.  I also caught a whif of the smell on my hands and it smelt sort of mechanical (I don't know how to explain it.  The downside of being a musician).
