Canon EOS 7D Batteries Review

Canon LP E6 Battery Pack for Select Canon Digital SLR Cameras

Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack for Select Canon Digital SLR Cameras $59.99

One of the most often over looked items to purchase with your Canon 7D is battery packs. There is nothing worse than being in the middle of a video or photo shoot and see that the battery pack in the camera is low and you haven’t any spares. It is good to at least invest in 2 to 4 battery packs and keep them charged at all times. Another thing to consider is, if you store your charged batteries for long periods of time they can lose 25% of their charge. If you know you have a video or photo shoot the following day it is a good idea to peak charge each battery pack the night before.

There are other off brand cheaper battery packs on the market that many would say work just fine for a Canon 7D. It is our opinion if you have taken the time to invest in a quality camera, don’t take the risk of possible damage a cheaper brand might cause due to shorts, overheat and leakage. Another issue with off brand batteries is most on the market do not have the ability to report their charge level to the Canon 7D. Canon puts special chips in their batteries that allow the 7D to within great accuracy determine the remaining charge in their battery pack. Like all things you get what you pay for, so protect your investment and get the right battery pack from the start.

Canon EOS 7D Battery Grip

Canon BG E7 Battery Grip for the EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera

Canon BG-E7 Battery Grip for the EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera $164.95

One of the main reasons we purchased the Canon battery grip was the fact it holds to battery packs for twice the charge, allowing for longer uninterrupted sessions before returning to the camera bag for more batteries. Although not used much to create a website video, the vertical shutter release is a great option for jobs like taking vertical pictures for company ID badges.

With all the added features the multifunctional application of this battery grip made it an obvious purchase choice for our company.

For many, the Canon BG-E7 battery grip is a must have. It completely changes the dynamics of the hold you have on the camera. When you hold a Canon 7D equipped with the BG-E7 battery grip you feel you have a firm hold on your investment much like a big handle.

Canon ACK-E6AC Adapter Kit for Canon 5D Mark II Digital SLR $119.00

With the Canon ACK-E6AC, gone are the days of charging batteries. Well not exactly gone. We use the Canon ACK-E6AC for every tripod shoot within reasonable distance to an outlet. If we need to be very mobile we of course rely on battery packs. We felt the Canon ACK-E6AC was a little on the pricey side, but if you’re not moving a lot it’s a great investment.
