If anyone has a link to an instruction manual for the BG-ED3, please add it to the article. Ace Frahm (talk) 07:03, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Will someone else please remove the notability tag? It is a ridiculus claim here, as EOS is the flagship line of Canon, perhaps the 500 lbs gorilla of cameras on planet Earth today. Considering this battery grip essentially doubles picture taking capabilities, and pictures are vital to wikipedia, it is absurd and counter-productive to stick a notability tag on this article. There is already too little EOS data on the wiki. This irrational willy-nilly tagging illustrates bias against new articles that may be incomplete because they need the power of crowds to grow, violating everything wiki stand for. Since I made this article to start with, I won't remove it myself. Ace Frahm (talk) 01:35, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Please cite some reliable sources that demonstrate its notability, then the tag can be removed. – ukexpat (talk) 16:07, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
Bear in mind that the grip was discontinued in 2004; it only works with the D30, D60, and 10D, which were all discontinued long ago. The chap above seems to think that it's the Canon EOS battery grip; it's one of many, and long-gone. In practice the article could be shortened to a single well-constructed sentence and shifted to the end of Canon EOS D30, and so forth, if it's not mentioned already. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 17:11, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
While I'm at it, the article ends by stating that it's compatible with the 30D and 60D; it's not, it's compatible with the cameras I just listed. The 30D and 60D had their own, mutually-incompatible grips. I would normally edit the article to reflect this, but I want the article dead and gone, so there's no point. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 17:14, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
