 Post subject: 5D MK III battery grip?
PostPosted: Mon Jun 18, 2012 4:48 am 
Can anyone recommend a third-party-made battery grip for 5D mk III?

i made a search just now and found this:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/909153/211286569-578065825/Vertax-E11-Battery-Grip-for-Canon-5D-Mark-III-Brand-New-Original-sealed.html

what do you think?

I got mine from ebay for the 450d. The grip was actually better built and felt more solid than the camera. The brand is MEIKE i got mine from this seller:http://myworld.ebay.com.au/delight-digi/
However I'm not recommending any seller. I had a pleasant experience with the seller, but you should do your own research. See if any other seller have it for less.
Btw,
It is probably one or two manufacturers for these battery grips and when seller purchase large quantities they brand them as they wish. The grip you have posted looks the same as the ones that are on ebay.
Good luck with your purchase.

For what it's worth, I can vouch for Meike too, assuming that they make one for the 5D Mk III. I bought one of their grips for my 550D and it's been perhaps the most useful accessory I've bought. The build quality is really good and I'm glad I bought it as opposed to paying three to four times as much for Canon's official grip.
