BG-C5
BATTERY GRIP
Designed For The Canon T2i/T3i
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations
on your new BG-C5 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-C5 is compatible with the Canon T2i/
T3i SLR camera. The BG-C5 accepts two Canon LPE8 rechargeable batteries, or six AA batteries (alkaline,
Ni-MH, lithium, or nickel-manganese) can be used
instead for added convenience. The BG-C5 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.

Please read through this entire manual before
using the BG-C5 battery grip.
The BG-C5 should only be used with compatible
devices specified in this manual.

Only use with batteries and battery holders
recommended in this manual.
6.
Turn the grip power off when not shooting
vertically.
3.
Cover the power terminals with the contact cap
when the BG-C5 is not in use. This prevents
electrical shorts caused by metal objects touching

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.
When the battery holder is removed from the
grip, remove the batteries or place the holder in

contact with other metal objects.

If you notice smoke, an unusual smell or noise from
