BG-C8
BATTERY GRIP
Designed for the Canon
EOS 6D DSLR Camera
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, NiMH, 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.

Please read through this entire manual before using
the BG-C8 battery grip.
The BG-C8 should be used only with compatible
devices specified in this manual.
6.
Turn the grip power off when not shooting
vertically.

recommended in this manual.
7.
The battery level may not display properly if
batteries are inserted before mounting the grip.
3.
Cover the power terminals with the contact
cap when the BG-C8 is not in use. This prevents
electrical shorts caused by metal objects touching
the power terminals.
8.
Remove batteries from the grip when not in use.
9.
Do not attempt to disassemble.
10.
Avoid water or extreme humidity and keep in a
dry and cool place.
11.
Keep out of reach of children.
5.
When you remove the battery holder from the
grip, remove the batteries or place the holder in
a container to prevent electrical shorts caused by
contact with other metal objects.
If you notice smoke, an unusual smell or noise from
the battery pack, discontinue use immediately.
Remove the batteries and take the device to a Vello
authorized reseller.
