BATTERY GRIP
Designed For The Canon
20D, 30D, 40D, And 50D
SLR Cameras
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations
on your new BG-C3 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-C3 is compatible with the Canon
20D, 30D, 40D, And 50D SLR cameras. The BG-C3
accepts two Canon BP-511A rechargeable batteries,
or six AA batteries (alkaline, Ni-MH, lithium, or
nickel-manganese) can be used instead for added
convenience. The BG-C3 is equipped with an alternate
shutter-release button, AF point selection, AE lock/
FE lock button, and main dial for shooting in a vertical
position.
