BG-C9 USER`S MANU AL

BG-C9
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the Canon 5D Mark III,
5DS, and 5DS R SLR Cameras
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations on
your new BG-C9 battery grip purchase. Enjoy the many
benefits that a battery grip offers, such as extended
shooting time and more control and comfort when
shooting in portrait orientation.
The Vello BG-C9 is compatible with the Canon 5D Mark
III, 5DS, and 5DS R SLR cameras. The BG-C9 accepts
two Canon LP-E6 or LP-E6N rechargeable batteries,
or six AA batteries (alkaline, Ni-MH, lithium, or nickelmanganese) can be used instead for added convenience.
The BG-C9 is equipped with an alternate shutterrelease button, AF start button, AF point selection,
AE lock/FE lock button, multi-controller button, multi
function button, and main dial for shooting in a vertical
position.

Please read through this entire manual before using the BGC9 battery grip.
The BG-C9 should only be used with the compatible
devices specified in this manual.
2. Use only with the batteries and battery holders
recommended in this manual.
7.
The battery level may not display properly if batteries
are inserted before mounting the grip.
8. Remove batteries from the grip when not in use.
Cover the power terminals with the contact cap
when the BG-C9 is not in use. This prevents electrical
shorts caused by metal objects touching the power
terminals.
4. When
the battery holder is removed from the
grip, remove the batteries or place the holder in
a container to prevent electrical shorts caused by
contact with other metal objects.
5.
Turn the grip power off when not shooting vertically.
If you notice smoke, an unusual smell or noise from
the battery pack, discontinue use immediately.
Remove the batteries and take the device to a Vello
authorized reseller.
