Why does the deal say 39.95 when the price is 49.95 ?

Can anyone comment on this vs neewer or others? I'm interested, but the comments on the Sony mention it getting stuck to camera...

There is one listing for $39.95, but it isn't a Vello. Title is a bit misleading

They are all in the same category IMO. Third party Chinese made stuff, it's a hit or miss. If you're a hobbyist/amateur, it's fine and gets the job done. If you're shooting paid jobs such as weddings, there's no way I'd risk it.

I've been loyal Nikon fan since 76. I've always used their motor drives and battery grips. But recently bought for my D600 . As with any grip people tend to overtighten grips. I never tighten passed a 1/4 past snug. Just like spark plug on engine.

I almost forgot I bought this since the last slickdeal on these which I think was over 3 months ago. I bought it for my 80D, but haven't actually installed it. A single battery lasts me a long time if I'm just taking pics and if I'm doing video, it only takes a few seconds to change to a fresh battery, so I haven't really had the need for it. Anyway, the build quality on these is really great. I remember thinking how a genuine Canon grip could have better build quality. Oh, and I just remembered, the shutter button for the vertical orientation does not feel as good as on the Canon 80D which actually bothered me a little. But again, I have not actually used it, so I can't comment further.

Don't know who downvoted you. Same thoughts. Title is misleading.

Went ahead and snagged one for the 5D4 after passing on the same deal in September. No way I could justify spending 6x as much on Canon for a limited need. While I'd typically agree that the third-party (Chinese) grips can be spotty performers, the Vello's are, for the most part, very well reviewed for Canon bodies. I don't really plan on using it in inclement weather so I'm sure it'll do just fine....

Do you or anyone know if the bottom thread is connected to the battery grip by metal or plastic? I can't find any videos or photos looking inside the Vello battery grip for the 80D. The Canon BGs have a metal section that the threads attach to if you look inside the BG body where the tray slides in. I use this to connect my camera to a strap when hiking or photographing events and was hoping Vello uses metal instead of plastic that you see in other clones due to their higher price.

I remember the inside of the battery tray being metal (not 100% sure), but I can upload pics to confirm after I get home tonight.
