I dunno, but Ive been considering getting a battery grip since itd be nice to have the extra batteries and Id prob. have less crooked(sp) vertical shots. Are there any other advantages that Im unaware of?
Plus the fact that it looks better to me.
Don't get a grip for a D70
Why? Trying too hard to look like a D200/D2X/whatever?
No, all of them suck.
Lemme guess...you have a Canon?
the Vertical shutter release is really slow
3rd party + wires ftl
the only decent grip
course it is what, $350
Battery, perhaps. Ergonomics-wise, the A2e/5 + VG10 rocks. My D30's batt-grip is still way better than any of the newer stuff too. Chalkboard eraser FTL. Wires FTMFL
i like the grip on my 20d
i got big hands though`s
LOL, that thread is like Lexar and Canon. I think someone got butthurt. For those that missed it, it went something like this:
threadstarter: HAY GUYZ. I GOTS A NEW GRIPS FOR MY FULL FRAME DIGITAL REBEL
reply 1: LOL, that grip is not very ergonomic, and the battery compartment feels cheap like the CF door of the FULL FRAME DIGITAL REBEL
threadstarter: NO ITS NOT, ITS COOL. IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, YOU ARE GAY OR HAVE SMALL HANDS
reply 2: the grip is bulky and ugly, but at least its magnesium alloy.
threadstarter: CHUT UP! ITS THE ONLY CHOICE I HAVE! BESIDES, I HAVE MORE MEGARPicksels THAN YOU, AND I SAVED ONE THOUSAND DOLLARZ!
reply 2: Whatever dude, that shit is ugly and looks like a chalkboard eraser. Here are 2 pics that show how terrible it looks compared to a body with built in grip.
threadstarter: GEEEE, I NEVER TAKE PICTURES OF CAMERAS TO SHOW DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THEM, YOU ARE GAY! AND AN ASSHOLE! YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY IN THAT 'CREW' THAT'S OUT TO GET ME!
reply 2: Don't get butthurt. I know you want to show off your new toy and all, but you gotta face the facts. Its ugly, and doesn't grip very well.
threadstarter: I'M GOING TO DELETE THIS THREAD
Now that my friend, has the 20D grip beat for ugliness. The grip looks like play-doh.
that was the alternative design for the BG-ED2
And whats with the elastic band going from the neckstrap slot to the eyepeice
probably a cover for the eye piece for long exposure, preventing stray light from entering through the viewinder -- or something to keep it from falling off
yeah, don't get a grip for the d70...the wire thing is fucking retarded and the grip itself is very cheap feeling.
Yeah, thats the first image I could find on Yahoo. Do they make wireless ones for the D70 cause if not Im not gonna have some crap hanging from it.
they didn't put the wire there for cost cutting purposes. no wireless options
