No, and no, there are no included or future planned separate grips for the 1DX.

next the GPS canon Wireless FileTransmitter WFT-E6A has anyone used that on this camera yet and if so what do you think is it for the 625.00 bucks?

I personally haven't read too many good reviews on it, and the price, even at $580 or so in the states seem very steep.

Yes, I'd like to know if a grip is available for the 1DX too.
I bought mine used a week ago, can't get it to work.

Maybe it needs the grip to work?

You did ask what seemingly was a very remedial question on April 1st of all days. For even the seasoned amateur photographer, most would/should know that the 1D series have ALWAYS come with an integrated vertical grip. So to ask about an additional battery grip, well, did seem like a trick question.

It's synonymous to asking if a DSLR comes with a mirror.

There's certainly nothing wrong in asking... but don't expect the world to coddle you with their response.

I'd chalk this up as another Lightrules moment.

If you do go through with the purchase, congrats to you. It's a fun camera.

Last I checked, an online forum is a place for people to discuss things. We're free to ask questions, and people are free to answer however they please. You asked a question, and you got a bunch of answers.

Well, at least from now on, you know that all 1D series come with an integrated vertical grip where the battery resides.

It's a great camera and I really love mine. Your question just pop up on the wrong date. Everybody or most folks were under the impression that it was an April fools joke. Hopefully nobody was offended. :)

There's a big difference between a simple question and one you *should* know if you're going to fork out $7,000 for a new camera.

^^ To be honest this is the answer of the day.

Buying a 1Dx for the sake of buying it and not knowing if you need a battery grip or not is not something that should be asked if you take your photography seriously.

I know that and I have only ever owned a 600D.
