BG-C8
BATTERY GRIP
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello, and congratulations
on your new BG-C8 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-C8 is compatible with the Canon EOS
6D DSLR camera. The BG-C8 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-C8 is
equipped with an alternate shutter-release button, AF
on button, AF point selection, AE lock/FE lock button,
and main dial for shooting in a vertical position.

contact with other metal objects.
