Snappy, Auto Rotate works for me on the 7D, 1D MK3 and all of the other cameras I have had. I use Breeze Browser, Photoshop Elements as well as DPP and they display properly in each of the programs. I have never used the cable to download from camra to PC. I always pull the card and use a card reader.
Hope this helps.

The problem is these shots are going on DVD. I realize the shots automatically rotate in PP programs, but when opening in a program such as the default "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" they show up as I took them. I can't tell the promoter "you're opening them wrong".

Do you need to shoot a lot in portrait orientation?
If not, then why add the the weight?

It is after all a "portrait grip"
Some feel the added weight is a plus. I'm a healthy large guy that carries his 15 pound rig all day chasing birds. I do not enjoy "adding extra weight" to my rig, so I don't.

I WISH I could remove the "Portrait grip" from my 1D.

I would put it back on when I know I'm shooting a lot in portrait.

Solution, Buy a 7d and use your 1D for portrait.

The reason I gripped my 7d and all the cameras I will buy in the future is:
- adds a second battery to the camera
- my hands are big and when walking around with the 70-200-2.8IS I need that extra support for my pinky for better balance and handling.
- it makes it look like a 1d, which I can't afford.

Grip the sucker...you can always remove it when you don't need it.

Grip it! Seriously. The feel and balance really is so much better.

was playing around w/ my 7d and 7-200 f/4 and my fingers are aching right now. I think I'm going to give in and buy the grip and hand strap.
