Battery grip for SL1? Or is that just too much..
« on: July 17, 2013, 04:07:27 PM »
Hey guys!
I recently got my SL1 and its small, needless to say. I was wondering if a battery grip will come out for it soon.. I'm kinda thinking not because of where the memory card is.. But you never know? :) I think a grip would be perfect but it might just defeat the purpose of being small. Haha. Idk. Any thoughts? Know abouts?

Doubt we'll see a grip.  Generally, they're announced along side the camera.

Seriously, buy the smallest DSLR and put a grip on it?

So it can be larger than a 70D?

Not too different than people buying an ultra thin, well-designed $800+ smart phone only to pay $50+ more for a big ugly case that makes it 3x as thick.

It balances the camera better when I'm shooting with my 600EX-RT and 70-200 f/2.8 ll :)

+1...just like buying EOS-M and use it with EF & EF-S lenses.

Not quite the same.  EF lens + adapter + EOS-M is still way smaller and lighter than EF Lens + 7D or equivalent.

Sounds like you own one. It looks wacky to me :-\

It's like turning a lens into a camera.  Stick this little box onto an EF lens and you are ready to shoot with something not much larger than the lens by itself.

Haha! Yeah, I figured but just in case.. It is pretty front heavy even with the 55-250.. 10-22mm is awkward too. Thx!

The OM-D has a battery grip. I know it's not exactly the same thing. I'm just saying'...  :-\
A few bodies, some flashes, a tripod here and there, a handful of lenses. Plenty of equipment, a lot of perseverance, but not enough talent (yet).

Doubt it.  :o would be a bit of an oxymoron to me...  not saying that it might not happen though! :)
