Canon INC is probably the name of the manufacture, several years ago there was a company named 925 that made jewelry and stamped it 925, people bought it thinking it was real silver but it was cheap garbage.

I worked in China for a few years, they can make anything.

I don't know how much difference there is between the the two but, I got a BG-E8 from an authorized Canon dealer in Arlington, TX for 165.00. Fits my T3i.

For accessories, I don't care if its 3rd party item or not as long as it is well built and works. So I wouldn't want to pay Canon's prices. But when you are paying more than 3rd party prices and the item was misleading you into thinking that you are getting anything more than a 3rd party product, I wouldn't hesitate to leave them a negative feedback.

I got myself a 3rd party grip from DealExtreme for my T1i and it looks good and works great. Paid something like $46!

Personally, I dont care what authorization these kind of sellers claim nor what their story is, I just avoid them all together and find the best deal I can on the official manufacturer stuff from a reputable dealer. I pay more for the assurance of having a quality product and Ive never and never have to worry about being burned.

It is not that you aren't paying Canon prices for these grips, but rather you are willing to forgo any manufacturing claim or warranty that Canon would give you for what some 3rd party is willing to give you for the grip, and any possible damage to the body should any occur.

Don't get me wrong, I buy ALL 3rd party grips and batteries, and have had great luck with about 95% of them, but I just wanted to make it clear that if you pay Canon prices for Canon goods, you are getting more out of that transaction overall than what you are getting with a cheaper product.

I'd buy a used grip here...that's where I bought both of mine (40D &5D grips). I no longer trust non Canon grips-Photek one caused my camera to blow a fuse.

The problem is, people always want something cheaper and then wonder why they have to deal with things like this happening...
