Are these any good? Anybody use them on a 7D or any other canon? I wopuld like a grip when I shoot baseball but don't keep it on the camera all the time.

Looks very similar, except for the lack of the grip-friendly coating on the battery compartment door on the Canon BG-E7.

I must say i am disappointed with the BG-E7. The shutter button is way to sensitive. I wonder if this Zeikos is any better?

Yes, the Zeikos is better. This review says it has the same feel as the body's shutter button. https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=9271638&po​stcount=22

How does it look when attached to the camera? Is it a nice smooth, practically "all one piece" look?

The actual BG-E7 looks as if it's almost form fitted to the 7D, UNLIKE the clumsy and blocky looking BG-E2(n) grips on the previous 20/30/40/50D cameras.


Photographers do it in 1/1,000th of a second...but the memory lasts forever! ;)

hmm, might "upgrade" one day. I sent mine in to Canon they agread it was very sensitive it was "adjusted" and came back feeling the same as when I sent it in.:(
