So... what's too good to be true about it?


I like making photos and sometimes I think I'm getting better... then I realise it doesn't matter. I like making photos!

Oh sorry, the price was only 33.00. I know there are aftermarket grips much cheaper than canon but didnt know how low they go. I am cureous if anyone else has dealt with the seller as well. I need it now.

I had an aftermarket for the 50D that the spring was so weak on the door, it would pop open and the batteries fell out. I sent it back and bought a real Canon........ So I got stuck for shipping it back too.

I'm sure for 20% of what Canon charges this one is of similar quality (to Canon of course)....

uggh... good thing I won't stress if it only makes it for a one time use. I was just gandering over the different views of it, and it is Meike. i think I heard good things about that brand when I searched. going back to look again.

My Meike grip for t2i has been doing well. Zero problems whatsoever. You'll receive it in whatever time period they've got stated.

I got one for the 7D for $29. Amazon estimated the shipping day to be 5-21 days, I thought they might be shipping it straight from China. I got it on the 5th day. It's plastic, but everything functions as they should, including the battery indicator. So far I am happy with it, especially for the price. Here's couple pictures..

Sweeeet :D Do you remember the name of the seller? that is a nice looking grip!

I want to insure that I get it here, what I am thinking of doing is keep trying to cancel my order through new harbor and reorder it with expedite shipping. But then New Harbor said it won't go out of their store until the 23rd. I am so stressed! I want this grip, I want it now! LoL I am normally not impatient but it will help alot since I have been having alot of trouble with my right arm, I need the vertical button, badly. The worst part, I would be happy if I just had it for ONE DAY. After that I would only pout if it broke unless it took my baby with it.

You should have just gotten it from Amazon itself then. It's $38.43 and if you have Amazon Prime you would get it on Tuesday. If you don't have Prime it'd be 3-5 days depending on your proximity to an Amazon warehouse.

none of the items that I ordered that day is coming from Amazon themselves. I had 5 different items, 5 different sellers and this NEW HARBOR emailed me saying it won't be shipped until Tuesday from NJ, to WA state. I have no idea what Amazon Prime is and since I did all this at work sneaking around on my iphone app I didn't see the shipping options and prices, actually i don't even think it was an option. So everything now says 7-14 business days. I bought a power pack for the flash, that has shipped so I imaging it will be here on time that is the only that sounds promising at the moment, 1 out of 5 items ordered.

I just re-read your post, I didn't know you could purchase anything straight from amazon unless they are listed as the seller.

In this case the 60D grip for $38.43 says "Sold by New Harbor and Fulfilled by Amazon." The important part is to look for "Fulfilled by Amazon." That means it comes from their warehouses. Amazon Prime gives you free 2 day shipping for everything you buy that comes from their warehouses. They have free 3 month trials for moms and caregivers. You can also get free months for students with .edu email addresses.

thank you for the tips. I am going to look into that. I have only bought there a few times randomly over the years. I am normally a die hard B&H kind of gal but I went on the wild side.:neutral:

I haves the one you linked to. No LCD. I believe the ones with LCD have intervalometers so you can do time lapse.
