Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations on
your new BG-C1 battery grip purchase. Enjoy the many
benefi ts that a battery grip offers, such as extended
shooting time and more control and comfort when
shooting in a vertical (portrait) orientation.

LP-E5 rechargeable batteries, or six AA batteries

be used instead for added convenience. The BG-C1
is equipped with an alternate shutter-release button,
aperture/exposure compensation button, AF point
selection/magnify button, AE lock/FE lock/lndex/
Reduce button, and main dial for shooting in a vertical
position.
