Use Buttons on the Battery Grip for Canon T4i

Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Eng, Visihow Admin

You're watching VisiHow. In the previous video, we installed the battery grip onto the camera. In this video we're going to show how to use the buttons on the battery grip for the Canon T4i (650D) camera. When you're taking pictures in the landscape mode, the shutter-release button is conveniently placed where your index finger can reach it. If you want to shoot in the portrait mode, it's harder to reach the shutter-release button, which is now located on the other side of the camera.
