Canon BG-E11 Making its Way to Retailers
« on: May 18, 2012, 03:09:18 PM »

Finally!
We’ve had spottings of the BG-E11 showing up in Australia and the UK. They should make their way around the rest of the planet fairly quickly. I’m told we’ll be able to get them in Canada next week, I assume it’s the same in the United States.

Proof! From @iSimonDavis in the UK

 Canon BG-E11 for preorder for $349 at Norman Camera |  B&H | Amazon | Adorama

Some more pics of the grip attached to the 5D3 :D

Side entry for batteries as opposed to the rear access 5D2, pics below of my 5D3 against my 5D2.

Why does Canon insist on making a new battery adapter for every slight body variation?  They size every body revision just a little larger or smaller, which necessarily requires a new adapter. What a waste.

I think they could standardize to 3 body sizes and maintain them year to year with very little effort. It would simplify their supply network and show some long term planing.

(yes, i know the obviously trite answer is "they do this to make money")

I had a third party grip for my 7D.  It had a slot in it where you could put the battery door (that you have to take off the camera).  It was nice to be able to keep everything together.  Does the canon BG-11 have this?

Yes mate, the Canon grip also has a space to put the battery cover once detached. This is the same for the Canon 5D2 grip.

It looks like H&B Digital (handbdigital.com) has them in stock. He said that he got them in this morning. I ordered mine and can't wait for it to get here! I have been spoiled by my 7D grip.

They had what...3.5 years to make this and release it WITH the 5d3.
These people are idiots.
And the price, lolz... I think you can get a GH2 for that price now.

jojo... I am sorry. I had to wait till may for this grip, I can wait one more month and get an alternative grip.

Yesterday I found an alternative chinese BG-E11 for $90 on pre-order. I bought it and cancelled my B&H order today.  The price worth the wait.

The original poster mentions Australia as a place to pick up the BGE-11.

Can you let us know from which store/s in Australia people are able to currently purchase the BGE-11?
