Had a bit of a scare last night. I went to charge my batteries for my 7DII but decided to check the current charge on them since I hadn't used it for a couple of weeks and forgot if I had them charged since then. Flipped the switch and it wouldn't power up. Figured the batteries in my grip were dead so I charged them then tossed them back in. Flipped the switch... dead. Had a mini heart attack and began trying everything in my power to fire it up. Took off the battery grip, tossed a battery directly in the body... still dead. I started to look into finally using my CPS gold membership to have it fixed before I head out of town next weekend, stewing because I wanted to use my strobes this weekend and this is the only body that I can use with my Pocketwizards. I eventually realized that I didn't have the battery door on (hahaha) so I pulled it off of the battery grip, put it back on the body and voila, it fired up. I then inspected the battery grip to try to figure out why it wouldn't read and noticed that this little tiny tab that sticks up and slides into the battery door hole on the body was missing. I was planning on shooting tomorrow so I hopped on amazon in search of a replacement that I was hoping would show up this weekend. What do I see when I sign in? A nicer Meike battery grip with free one day shipping to prime members if I ordered within 6 minutes. Ended up getting it figured out from beginning to end within 45 minutes. Good times!

PJJ, are you using an aftermarket grip? I bought a Newwer grip for my Rebel T6s, but that is not a weather-sealed body, so when I got the 7D2 I went with the Canon grip. I don't plan to test the weather sealing but I did want a matching surface, would love to hear (or see) how your aftermarket grip matches up with the surface on the 7D2.

I had a similar issue with a non-canon grip. It was weird, I would have to put one battery in and turn the camera on and then off and put the second battery on and then it would recognize both batteries. I switched to a Canon grip and I have not had any issues at all. Yes the Canon grips are more expensive but reliability is worth the price especially for those of us that work professionally.

Sorry, I should have specified that it was a Vivitar grip that broke. I think that I must have misaligned it when I pulled the body and grip apart at some point so it snapped the tab off, but I don't even remember removing the grip since the last time I used the camera. I did travel to Seattle with it in my pelican so maybe it rumbled around inside my case and broke free, although I have my entire set of gear packed perfectly inside.

I almost bought the Canon OEM for my 7DII since I have one on my 5DIV, but the one day shipping for $57.00 total cost beat out $209.00 with 2 day shipping. The Canon grip on my 5DIV is flawless when it comes to fit. I was actually surprised at how perfectly molded they were when I put them together... looks and feels like one solid piece. I definitely noticed that the OEM grip does a better job at keeping out dust than any of the third parties because i shoot motocross and have yet to find any dust inside the tray or between the grip and body of my 5DIV, whereas my 7DII is pretty dusty in both spots on nearly every outing.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Just a wild finch, a little soft due to high ISO in dark conditions but I managed to lighten it up a bit
