B&H now has the Vello battery grip for the Canon 6D available and shipping for only $75. Compare that to $229 for the official Canon BG-E13 battery grip for the 6D.
I hadpreviously tested the Vello grips for the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D, and found them to be solid performers – especially considering the price. Check out the Vello grip for the Canon 6D here at B&H Photo.

Vello Extension Tube Kit w/ AF for Canon and Nikon at $55
B&H has a couple of Vello extension tube kits (includes 31mm, 21mm and 13mm tubes) in both Canon and Nikon kits for only $55.
If you aren’t familiar with extension tubes, they are mounted between you camera body and lens. This shortens the minimum focus distance and essentially turns all of your current lenses into macro lenses. These are a great and affordable option for trying your hand at macro photography without the need to invest a lot into a dedicated macro lens.
I’ve used a set of Kenko extension tubes for years. The great thing about these (as well as the Vello tubes that B&H has) is that they will transmit AF info between the body and lens, which means you don’t have to use manual focus if you don’t want to.
At $55, these Vello extension tubes look like a real steal. Note, however, that his is a 20% off sale that looks like it will end on March 22. Still, the $68 normal asking price should be well worth it.
Check out the Vello extension tubes here at B&H Photo.
$90 Battery Grip from Vello Now Available for Nikon D800
B&H now has the Vello BG-N7 battery grip available for the Nikon D800 and D800E for only $90. I had previously tested the Vello grips for the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D, and found them to be solid performers – especially considering the price. Check out the Vello grip for the D800 here at B&H Photo.
Vello 5D Mark II and 7D Battery Grip Review
Previously, I did a comparison review of battery grips for the Canon 5D Mark II – specifically, the Canon BG-E6 battery grip with third party grips from Zeikos (apparently, no longer available) and Vivitar. My conclusion was that both of the third-party grips performed comparably to the more expensive Canon-branded grip. As a supplement to that review, I’m casting the Vello BG-C2 grip for the Canon 5D Mark II and the Vello BG-C4 battery grip for the Canon 7D into the comparison. [Read more…]
