    :bowdown: Feels like a brand new camera. The grip is pretty fucking good for being an aftermarket product as well :coold: No complaints besides the fact that it doesn't say canon on it :mamoru:

    A+++ will buy again.

    You will never, ever want to take it off. The entire rebel series is practically a toy without it.

    The targus battery grip is utter trash.

    The battery door has to be secured with electrical tape or it doesn't hold a tight connection.. and the unit itself has to be on the camera body WAY too tight, or it won't maintain a power connection.

    It was a decent product for the first month or so.. but the quality sucks. Genuine canon or nothing from now on. :hsd:

    I've had the opteka grip on my xt for a long time. it sure does suck without it. I'm surprised on how well the thing works. it's never once given me an issue. I recently got a 40D. opteka makes a grip for it?
