Canon M50 Half Case Grip
Canon M50 Half Case
Hi, while I was looking for battery grip for my Canon M50, I seen that they sell half case grips. What would be the purpose of this type of grip?
Thanks for your question about the bottom half case for the Canon EOS M50. The chief advantage of using this "grip" is that it gives you protection for your M50. The Canon M50 has not been around for long enough for Canon and other accessory makers to have developed a ton of gadgets and add-ons for the camera, but the half grip is one exception.
My very first camera (Topcon 100 film camera) I ever used had a 2 piece case and the bottom half was quite similar to the M50 case you're asking about. I found the top part cumbersome to unsnap each time I wanted to take a photograph. I just left the bottom half of the case stay on the camera except when I had to change the roll of film (every 36 photos).

I read the reviews on Amazon for a brown leather version of the M50 case and they opinions were quite positive. One of the recurring comments was that the half case improved the feel of the camera in the photographer's hands.
