I recently put a battery grip on my 7D. Wanted it so that maybe it would be easier to shoot in portrait position with out reaching over the top of the camera. The problem I am having is that I sometime move the thumbwheel without realizing it and mess up some pictures. Any way to avoid this. I am turning off the on,off switch on the grip but then that defeats my purpose of having the grip.

I've been using grips since my 450D. I have never had that problem. Do you have really large hands?

There is the lock switch that defeats the thumbwheel :) I use it a lot as I am for ever knocking the exposure then I put the camera down


Call me Amanda please :)

I didn't think my hands were that big! The wheel usually gets moved inadvertently between shots . Will try the switch lock. Didn't think of that.
Thanks

I find once is worn in a little it spins surprisingly easily. I'm always knocking it and I don't have big hands. I'm guessing Canon realised that it might be a problem, hence they put the lock on :)
