Battery grips hold extra batteries beneath DSLR or mirrorless cameras. In addition to extending the battery life of the camera, some grips have an extra shutter release, which is great for portrait photography.
Benefits of Battery Grips
In addition to storing digital camera batteries and having an extra shutter release, some battery grips have main command dials for convenient access to your cameras functions. Some grips contain full panel controls that make it possible to run your DSLR camera from the grip. The grips also have large bases that make it easier to hold and steady the camera for smoother shots. Using a grip can more than double the time you spend shooting without having to stop to replace batteries. Digital camera batteries and chargers can also extend your shooting time by charging your extra batteries while shooting.
What Are Battery Holders?
Battery holders keep your batteries in the camera. If you lose, break, or crack your holder, replace it as soon as possible. If the battery opening isn't securely closed, dust or moisture can get in, which can damage your equipment.
