Despite the fact that the Canon EOS RP is an excellent video capturing device and one of the cheapest full-frame mirrorless cameras you can currently get, its short battery life is still a deal-breaker for many video shooters.
Thankfully, this drawback is already a thing of the past with the Canon EOS RP Battery Grip offered by Custom Battery Grips – a Poland-based company that specializes in making custom made battery grips for Canon mirrorless cameras, the EOS M50 included. Let’s take a closer look at this enticing third-party offering in the video below.
In a nutshell, the Canon EOS RP Classic Battery Grip uses two 18650 cells to power your EOS RP while allowing nonrestricted access to the SD card slot of the camera itself. It’s 3D printed built of the highest quality ABS plastic, plus it improves the overall feel and handling of the camera once attached.
The unit also features a battery level indicator allowing you to keep track of the battery percentage left while shooting. You can easily attach the grip by removing the door on the battery compartment of the EOS RP and screwing it using the 1/4″-20 mounting thread.
