Battery grip for Canon 77d

I just purchased a 77d. Because of the small battery I wanted to get a battery grip. I checked online and at the Canon store but couldn't find one! Does Canon make a grip for this model?

Maybe the problem is that you are looking for the WRONG model version. Canon makes a 70D & an 80D but not a 77D.

Here is the link on the Canon website:

The camera is sitting beside me.

Well you've got me there. It's listed as a new model & I've never heard of it until now even though I frequent several photography forums. The grip may be coming in the future.

I hope so. I shoot events and with this small battery I am worried about having to switch batteries. I would rather keep shooting. The battery on my 60d is twice as thick.

In actual fact that body isn't yet available on the Canon Canada (where I live) web site yet. It shows up in the list of EOS cameras but not in the E Store.

I really wanted the 80d but couldn't spend the extra $200 to get it. Once I changed the menu back to the normal Canon menus I felt okay with the purchase.

If you are use to Canon menus the new guided menu will frustrate you.

I'm very familiar with the regular menues & doubt I'll have to learn any new ones for a while. I guess manufacturers realize that a lot of people won't read their manuals so they add the info into the menu system. At least it sounds like you can by pass that idea.

It sounds like a step in the wrong direction anyway. One of the good features of Canon's DSLRs has been the relative consistency of the controls from one model to the next.

 

Frankly, I have a bit of difficulty parsing the 77D's intended role. Given the existence of the Rebel line, there's no obvious need for a dumbed-down 80D. It's occurred to me to wonder if it isn't really just a test bed for in-camera stabilization, a feature that AFAIK appears nowhere else in Canon's product line.

Re: Battery grip for Canon 77d

It doesn't have in-camera stabilization. It's basically a stripped down 80d. It's smaller and lighter. Some of the controls that are on buttons on the 80d are in menus. However, the important ones: ISO, shutter speed, and aperture can be accessed easy like the 80d. The images are great! It focuses very well in low light (compared to my 60d).
