Battery Grip Contest

(Updated: May 03, 2014)

The contest is over!

The blog has over 3,000 subscribers, but only 11 folks commented. Considering there are only 11 folks who qualify for the contest we decided to award everyone something (remember that when we run a contest in the future).



Getting Rid of Some Tested Equipment

Win a Battery Grip for your Canon 5D Mark III by simply leaving a comment on the Canon 5D Mark III Battery Grip Study by 30 April 2014.  On 1 May 2014, I will randomly choose 3 users who left comments and e-mail them for their mailing address. I will then mail to each, at my expense, one of the battery grips used in testing and shown in the picture above.  The comments can be anything, you may simply say, “Hi!” No comment that is trying to advertise, sell, or direct viewers to another site that has nothing to do with photography or even digital equipment will be considered.

Up for grabs is the Flashpoint, Vello and Vivitar battery grips, one of each.  You can include in your comment which you prefer, but no guarantees.  I will randomly choose 3 winners, earliest commenter of the three has first priority.  I will try to satisfy preferences listed in the comment otherwise, I will provide the grips in order of cost.

In case your having a problem commenting, simply follow the link to the Canon 5D Mark III Battery Grip Study, scroll to the bottom of the post, and enter your comments in the block labeled: Comment/Suggestions? Ensure your e-mail address is correct, or I can’t get in touch with you. Needless to say, we do not sell, or in any way use your e-mail address for anything other than sending out a newsletter which we have only done once since it takes a lot of time to put together, but we might do another one soon.

    AMAZING TIMING!! Thanks so much to Michael Pietrzyk for the VELLO battery grip. It was delivered just in time for me to take off on a long weekend of photographic fun and frolic. Here’s hoping that the meteor show tonight is a big one! THANKS!!! -Kathleen in AZ

    I saw your review of the Vello grip in B&H which linked me to this page. I had the unfortunately mistake of nudging the camera during a time-lapse sequence of the recent lunar eclipse and vowed to get a battery grip for my beloved 5D3. Your review is very helpful! And my timing is great… I sincerely hope to be chosen for one of your generous give-aways! Any one will do 🙂

    Thanks for the info … looking for a grip that powers the camera while shooting video. I also like being able to use AA batts in a pinch.

      All of the grips come with a AA battery drawer. We didn’t test or use the AA battery drawer.

        just in the learning stage, sold my 1DS mark2 and a few other pieces to bring the price down, i thought the DS could grab fast but the mark 3 is a whole new level. Loved that 1DS2 though, got over 160,000 before sold it and still going on everything original
