I know nothing about grips, but i need more battery life and the second shutter button for portraits. Can anyone recommend me a good grip?

The official Canon BG-E4 grip.

Check For Sale forum -- seems to be some used ones for sale.

I beg to disagree here. I recommend any of the 3rd party grips. I've yet to see a complaint about any of them, they are a fraction of the price of the Canon, and often can be bought with extra batteries. Even Amazon sells them for most models, although I bought mine from somewhere deep in the heart of China. Check Ebay.

Thanks both of you.

:) hehe...

Just one flash layer. Two lights, one in an umbrella and one bare, popped together in the same frame. Mixed with two ambient frames for the window and some interior lighting glow.

play hard, sleep hard.
i am pretty floored at how much the 50 1.4 vignettes on the 5Dc, even outdoors in the snow it vignettes quite intensely.

Hmm, I don't get that -- are you using the "official" Canon hood? You could certainly get vignetting like that with the wrong hood.

Here's a quick find of a 50 1.4 shot at f/1.8:

This one, shot at f/1.4, shows no vignetting:

hmm... good point, the vignette does look a bit uneven. The lower right does not match the lower left.

FWIW my 5D came with an aftermarket grip and it looks, feels, and works great. As long as the electronics work it's hard to justify the price of the Canon OEM grip
