The Canon BG-E16 Battery Grip for the Canon 7D Mark II Camera is an optional battery grip with improved ergonomics designed specifically for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II. It allows users to load a choice of one, or two LP-E6N battery packs. With two packs, the already-impressive battery life is doubled, compared to using a single LP-E6N pack in-camera. This is especially useful when taking advantage of the camera's movie mode or Live View mode - operating modes that use more power.
The BG-E16 also provides full vertical shooting controls, which can be independently turned on or off as the photographer needs to enhance camera handling, especially for shooting vertical pictures. It has a large number of operating controls as well: shutter button, Main Dial, multi-controller, AF point selection button, AE lock/FE lock button, AF start button, and multi-function button.
One LP-E6N battery included.
