T7i Battery Grip.

I, for the life of me, can't find any battery grips for the t7i. Are they any at all that fit it?

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

Hello fewcrank, 

At this time Canon does not have a dedicated battery grip for the EOS Rebel T7i.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you at this time.

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

I've been looking for a battery grip for my T7i. Unfortunately there hasn't been one - at least no grip made by Canon.

 

Today I've seen that Canon UK claims that there is a grip: the BG-E8.

 

Have a look on their website: https://store.canon.co.uk/canon-bg-e8-battery-grip/4516B001/?nav=accessories%2Ccameraaccessories%2Cb...

 

It's quite confusing. And in fact I don't believe that the BG-E8 fits the T7i.

 

So my question is: Does anyone actually use that grip with his T7i?

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

Well, that website does guarantee it is compatible with:

  • EOS 800D
  • EOS 750D
  • EOS 760D
  • EOS 700D
  • EOS 650D
  • EOS 600D
  • EOS 550D
  • And I found a bunch of them on Amazon including the BG-E18, not E8, which I ordered already for my T6i. The UK might just use different part numbers. If you don't get confirmation here then ask the good people at BH Photo. Doesn't the T7i use LP-E17 batteries? Whatever you do don't buy it from overseas in case you have issues you'll get headaches along with them.

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

Thank you, John!

 

There's no difference between the T7i and the 800D. It's the same camera.

 

Yes, it uses LP-E17 batteries. And yes, it's confusing.

 

I already asked Canon to confirm that I can use the camera and the grip together. They didn't answer yet. But even if they will ... I'd prefer the assistance of another customer. Does anybody use the camera and the grip already?

 

PS: As soon as I'll get a response from Canon, I'll post it here!

If I were Canon, I would not give you an answer, either.  I would only tell you that we have not released a battery grip for the T7i, and do not plan on doing so.  Refer any questions about third party gear to the manufacturer.  

Canon is under no obligation whatsoever to provide support for gear that they do not manufacture and sell.  None.  I know that might sound a bit harsh.  But, that is the long and short of it.  I hope you understand the reasoning.

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

I am almost positive the BG-E18 battery grip will work on the T7i. Here is what I would do, purchase one from a site/seller with a liberal return policy and try it.

Canon, as well as most if not all OEM's, will not support. recommend or give advice on third party products but I am talking about a Canon battery grip, made by Canon. The people at Canon rarely go the extra mile with their answers so if it is not in the user manual, which it is not, that is all they will tell you My only other advice is to call/email BH Photo and ask their customer service or another camera store

Re: T7i Battery Grip.

Thank you, Waddizzle!

 

But you got me wrong. I'm not talking about a third party gear. The grip is originally manufacured and sold by Canon. Canon itself claims that the grip BG-E8 can be used with the T7i.

 

My only problem is that I don't trust their website.

I think you are right. I will ask another camera store for assistance.

 

I will let you know if I can fix that problem.
