Battery Grip for 10D

Discuss lenses & accessories for your camera...

Postby TonyK » Feb Sat 26, 2005 12:11 pm

I know the grip is about 3 years old.

And I feel $175 is too much for it. Vance will tell you I reject offers I consider too high.

I need to see what shipping willl be (UPS or USPS?) and we can then talk. But $175 is too much, even if I included shipping.

Let's call it closer to $125 plus shipping. I'll try to get you the cost for shipping. Give me a PM so I have a mailing address for it please.

Your wife hates it? It must be a Female thing there is a lady who works at the Visual Arts Center here locally that has a grip for another model camera and hates it too.

How old is the grip you have?

I've been looking on Ebay to see what they are going for and I have
seen them going anywhere from $142.50 to $199.00.

I can't afford to go too crazy because we just moved from California to Oregon and the cost of the move really put a dent in my mad money.

At the same time I want to be fair to you I don't expect you to give it away either.

At the present time the best I can do is $175.00, funds are just to tight
since the move. I probably shouldn't be spending money on a grip but since they are apparently discontinued I may not have much more time to get one.

If that's to low then that's ok I have made it so far with out one.

I will check back in here soon to see if you posted a reply.

Thanks for the oportunity to at least make an offer Tony.

Have a great day.

This is awesome! Thank you Tony for being so fair and just. I sent you a PM
with my contact information including my email address here at home.
Feel free to shoot me an email if you like and I will check respond as soon as I can.

It's nice to see that there are still good people left in this world and I feel that covers most of the people ion this forum. I trust the gang here in the forum more then I do in my own neighborhood.


Take care Tony and thanks so much for making it possible for me to
get the grip. It will be so nice not to have to be a contortionist to capture a photo in the verticle position. :dance

Thanks again and have a great day.

Hi Tony,


Yes I have been tracking it since it left Austin. It's been fun because I have been trying to guess what route it would take to get here. :bgb
I didn't do to bad either in my guessing of the states I thought it would go through but I only guest right two cities it would stop at. Hee Hee!

I have to say this for UPS they are right on when they give a delivery date,
I'm actually a little surprised that there wasn't an attempt to deliver it here yesterday because it was in Hermiston Oregon which isn't that far away.

I guess UPS has to stick to it's delevery schedule though which is cool
I'm just excited to get the grip. :bd

Thanks Again Tony for selling it to me I truly appreciate it.

By the way....Hows Samwise doing?


Have a great day.

Hi Tony,


Sorry I haven't posted sooner my wife and I have been constantly unpacking our stuff since we moved so alot of my time has been dedicated to that.

Yes it arrived on time and in top notch condition thank you so very very much. :bd

Your awesome Dude! :bgb

I took it out of the box mounted it on the 10D, popped my batteries in it and headed out the door and down to the beach. I put her through her paces and she came through with flying colors. Shooting in the verticle now is a pleasure and so much easier to do.

It may be my imagination but it seems to me with the extra battery power the focus is a tad faster.

Has the check arrived yet?

I mailed it February 28 which was a monday around 11am pacific time so it should arrive soon if it hasn't already.

Keep me posted if there is any problem, you have my phone number, email and physical address.

If for some reason the check should get lost in the mail let me know and I will go to my bank and have them wire the money to you.


Thanks again ever so much Tony I am one happy camper and lovin this grip.

Your the best! :bgb :bd :up
