Battery Grips in Nigeria
A battery grip is a device that is attached to the bottom of the camera with a secondary shutter button and a mode wheel.
If you have a battery grip on your camera, you can always have an extra battery with you, a battery that the camera uses automatically when your camera's battery is empty. This means you have twice the battery life without having to stop and change batteries when a shoot is ongoing.

Advantages of battery grips in Nigeria
A battery grip not only makes your camera more comfortable to hold, but it also sends those button commands to where motor memory awaits.
Additionally, a battery grip helps improve stability, especially when shooting with a large telephoto lens or with long zoom lenses mounted on your camera.
Another benefit of using them is their name - they contain extra batteries. This effectively doubles the battery life of your camera and increases the amount of time you can use to take photos without distraction.
For press or street photographers, or landscape photographers on long adventures, this can make a difference.
Disadvantages of battery grips in Nigeria
Some are very expensive, but there are some inexpensive grips available.
They are convenient due to their larger size, but being large is not beneficial in all aspects. While the handle can be removed when trying to be more compact, like when traveling, most people have a main camera bag.
If you originally chose a bag that perfectly fits the profile of your camera, you will not like the installed battery handle and may not fit the tight vertical space.
