    better battery life, and a better feel for those of us who like a bulky camera body.
    (annd if you get the expensive one, you can take portrait oriented shots the same way you take landscape...follow?)

    the grip I have for my d40 has a vertial shutter reliease.. it was expensive.. $30 i think..nikon doesnt actually make one for the d40.. i'm guessing the OP got the Phottix grip.. works great, except you have to always be in remote mode to use it.

    I wish, the grip for my xt is $200 bucks new. I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw it on the shelf. I bought my xt for $350 used and the grip is more than half the price, wtver. grats on yours though, their great for portraits and feel.

    hum ... $200 for the Canon BG-E3 seems kind of high.

    i think you open it to a 45 degree angle and it slides out.
