BG-C9
BATTERY GRIP
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 a vertical (portrait) orientation.
The Vello BG-C9 is compatible with the Canon 5D
Mark III SLR camera. The BG-C9 accepts two Canon
LP-E6 rechargeable batteries, or six AA batteries
(alkaline, Ni-MH, lithium, or nickel-manganese) can
be used instead for added convenience. The BG-C9
is equipped with an alternate shutter-release 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.
