You are probably right.
Yeah, I think so. It is called an "extension grip." All the others are called "battery grip." There is a certain amount of absurdity in the idea that one buys a mirrorless camera because it is compact and then shells out extra money to make it bigger. Now all we need is a "Canon SC-1" – a specially designed sound card that will make it louder.

Shouldn't take long for a 3rd party version of that thing to come out. Was hoping it would fit 2 batteries.

Is the battery door on the bottom of the RP? Because that thing doesn't look like it would let you change the battery.

The icon printed on the top looks like an SD card or battery.
Buy one with arca Swiss dovetailing like RRS

So, it looks like it will probably come in at about $1,599 US then? Not the super aggressive pricing some had hoped at $1,299 - $1,399. That's about where I expected it.
Keep in mind that the european prices are not just based on currency exchange. As mentioned, they include 19% taxes and even then the US prices are usually lower for a number of reasons.

For example, on the respective Amazon pages (de, co.uk, com) the R sells for

US: 2299$
Germany: 2249€
UK: 2149 (Price of Body and Adapter set with the adpater cost subtracted)

The Amazon links don't seem to work now - perhaps someone jumped the gun?

I wonder if the the battery door is removed to fit the grip which has it's own battery door therefore enabling a larger/longer battery to be used? Probably just wishful thinking on my part. But a good idea perhaps!

Or add a mirror!

Could'n it be that this grip is designed to accomodate a new high-capacity battery with different dimensions?:unsure:

I was wondering if has just a non-replaceable battery to be charged via USB + wall adapter. Seems like the USB charging port would have been noticed by now though.

Also indicates that it has focus bracketing. Is that a first for Canon SLR/Mirrorless, or have I missed it on previous models?
Maybe Canon considers focus bracketing an amateur feature since highly skilled enthusiasts and pros control that for themselves.
