BATTERY GRIP
Designed For The Canon 5D
Mark II SLR Camera
Introduction
Thank you for choosing Vello and congratulations
on your new BG-C2.2 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-C2.2 is compatible with the Canon 5D
Mark II SLR camera. The BG-C2.2 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-C2.2 is
equipped with an alternate shutter-release button, AF
start button, AF point selection, AE lock/FE lock button,
multi-function button, and main dial for shooting in a
vertical position.

a container to prevent electrical shorts caused by
