Canon BG-E1 Battery Grip

Interestingly, the battery grip for my Rebel 2000 (non-digital) had the ability to take 4 AAs in place of the CR123 Lithium battery - why did they leave this out of the BG-E1?

yea? and is there a battery grip out there for the digital rebel (not the newer version) where you can use AAs instead of the battery packs?

Mine is a question! Can the EOS REBEL 300D use the battery grip BG- ED3?

No. Only the Canon BG-E1 battery grip works on the Canon EOS Digital Rebel. I believe there are also third-party battery grips that would work, but am not sure.

You turned the switch on the side of the E1 to the "on" position?

It's pretty easy to use. All of the buttons on the vertical battery grip does the same thing as the buttons on the camera when the switch is in the "on" position. When the switch is in the off position, none of the buttons work. Do you really need a manual?

Title: AA battery based digital SLR camera
Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: My old Canon EOS film SLR cameras used 2CR5 and CR123A lithium batteries for power. I thought that was too troublesome, because they are relatively more expensive and harder to find than regular double-A batteries.

Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: A friend bought the wrong battery grip for her camera (BG-E1) and gave it to me thinking it would be usable with my new XTi. A very insecure Canon customer svc rep said that the BG-E1 will not work with my XTi. Can anyone tell me if this is true or can I use the BG-E1.
