I like Meike and Ansmann. Both are in the slightly more expensive range of 3rd party grips, but worth the price.

what is a reliable place to order these? i tried looking for meike on ebay and amazon, but a bunch of generic crap by Neewer came up

Your left arm is tucked up against your chest, the left hand cradles under the lens at the point of balance for the camera+lens.

When it comes to tools, it's function over form.
A grip will certainly help. It gives you more room for your hands, and the added weight will help balance the camera. Especially with longer or heavier lenses.

wound up going with a canon grip over 3rd party (i know, more expensive, but it is what it is).
it definitely adds a nice amount of heft to the camera, which is great in its own right, and i must admit so far i even like the way it looks (almost like a 1D... ALMOST, lol)

i fired off a few shots, and it seems much more stable (could just be the excitement of a new accessory, so i need to take it out and shoot).
the only negative is that it doesnt fit into my 6MDH all that well anymore.
