Question for everyone that uses these together. What position do you set down your camera in when not using it? I recently got a chance to try a grip on an XTi and like the feel of it, extra battery life, and all the pluses that go with it. One thing bothers me though. The grip would put the bottom of the camera and the lens on a uneven plane to set down on a flat surface.
With a small or wide angle lens, the grip is wide enough to stand it upright anyway. With a larger lens like a 70-200, the camera will tip forward laying on the front edge of the grip and the front of the lens. If you lay it down on the usb compartment side, it is better but still seems a like what might be a negative situation causing stress points. This also might be even more difficult with a flash on. Looking for comments and opinions how others feel about this. Thanks.
