question

Is the power button on the grip supposed to activate the camera? Where are the instructions for this grip?
Asked by: Josh K.
Dear B&H,Thanks for getting back to me. I am still using it. Nice stuff. After testing, it proves that the power button on the grip only turns the grip on or off. It can't be used to turn on or off the camera K3. Hope it helps.SincerelyJohn

So with this battery grip I can keep a battery in the body and one in the grip correct? So I get longer battery life? ts a little confusing as to weather I can still keep one battery in the body when this is attached or just 1 battery total.
