Just wondering if others have had the same experience with the BG-E2N as I am having. Sometimes, the shutter button "feels" a little slow/sluggish. It's not as responsive as the 40D shutter button, as if the vertical grip's shutter button has a twitch of shutter lag.

Anyone else experiencing this? (hence being normal for all grips) or should I be concerned?

Thanks in advance.

Hmm.... I haven't noticed it, but I don't use it too often. I have the grip mostly for the comfort factor of resting it against my wrist when I hold the camera.

Can't say I've noticed. The shutter button on the grip for my 400d, 40D and 5D all feel much the same as the relative camera buttons and just as responsive.

It's not that your grip is loose on the camera? So that you have a bad contact?

Otherwise I think the grip works fine, and I sometimes use it more than the normal trigger button.

The grip's as tight as it can be (w/o me breaking it). Camera's 1 month old, grip's 1 week old.

Hm...

Have you tried taking it off and mounting it again? Just in case some dust is interfering with the electrical interface?

No problems with shutter lag with my older BG-E2 - The other button feels exactly the same to me.
You may have a faulty unit.

Yeah, I removed it, made sure the contacts were clean, and remounted it. Feels the same.

Hm... thanks for the responses.

Sounds like you've got a sketch grip. Get a replacement.


Anyone know anything anywhere anymore?

Is it a genuine Canon grip or an aftermarket one?
