    Hey

    Im looking at investing in a battery grip for my Canon EOS 1000d (rebel)

    Are there any real reasons to pay £100+ for a canon version, when similar products are going for £40-£50 on eBay?

    Anybody know of any cheaper alternatives that are worth looking at? (For UK)

    Cheers!
    Nic

    I got a Zeikos for my Nikon that's been trouble-free and functions very well.

    I made the mistake in buying a non genuine grip for one of my old Canon 400D.
    The more I used it the worse it got with the fit, in the end, the plastic on the grip cracked, so I ended up buying the Canon grip...shoulda saved the money in the first place and just by the genuine article!

    I have the same for my D90. You can tell it's not genuine Nikon, but it still feels good. When you have a cheap budget, sometimes you have to sacrafice..... :blushing:
