I don't use a grip on my 7D. It interferes with using my Stroboframe Off-Camera Flash Bracket. I there is not enough room to easily flip the camera to vertical when using the Stroboframe Bracket with the battery grip since I need to either have the Canon Off-Camera Cord to fire the flash or have my onboard flash popped up in order to take advantage of the 7D wireless flash capability.

Besides, the rig with a 550EX flash is heavy enough without the added weight of the grip and pair of extra batteries.

I carry an extra battery or two in the pocket of my photo vest and have never had a problem with batteries crapping out...

Zeikos, works well on the 7D.

The instructions came in a language that resembles English, but no that closely.

i had a zeikos grip but the shutter button actually popped off.
needless to say, i returned it and went without a grip for almost a year.

i recently picked up polaroid grip from amazon and couldnt be happier.
the quality probably doesn't beat the canon's but considering the price tag and what you get, you cant go wrong.

i have a review on amazon that goes point by point, check that out if you like.
