    Fujifilm VG-XT1 reviews

    VG-XT1 Vertical Battery Grip is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, Some Usability Issues The product is a solid piece of equipment and works as expected. However I have 2 gripes that I wish I had known before purchasing. 1. the grip only holds 1 battery, the camera battery slot is still used which means you have to remove the grip to recharge that battery... Kind of annoying. 2. The F.A., AE-L, and AF-L buttons are in completely different locations from the camera body. This leads to some fumbling when switching between the camera and grip... again annoying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved Handling Overall, the better balance and improved handling make this a good buy. The downside of bulkiness when travelling just means I take it off when portability is essential. Positives -Improves overall balance with medium to larger lenses -More comfortable shooting in portrait mode -Tripod mount aligned with center of lens axis Negatives -Reduces portability (this is obviously a given) particularly if your camera bag was specific for smaller kits. -For someone with smaller hands, it makes it more difficult to change focus points. -If you have a neck strap on the camera, it can get in the way when shooting in portrait mode.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Improves grip, but not worth it. It seems built well and fits great, and let's you get all your fingers on the camera for grip. It is really annoying that you need to either remove the grip to use a second battery in the camera or run just one battery and deal with the constant red no battery icon on the screen. And at the end of the day, the compact size of the X-series is one of the best features, this just starts making the T1 creep back towards DSLR world. Best use is with the huge lenses like the 16-55 2.8 WR

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and functional This grip is as solidly built as the X-T1 itself, which is saying a lot. For those who might find the X-T1 too small in the hands (if you're used to pro-level DSLRs like the D4 this could well be the case) the grip adds a nice substantial holding area and well balanced weight to the entire rig. Of course, having the shutter button located on the right side (so that it is on top when you hold the camera in portrait orientation) is a great convenience as well. The grip is easy to install - guiding pins make it all but impossible to screw up and the tripod-thread mount ties down snugly. If I have to nit-pick for a con, it's just that the small contact cover on the grip as well as the rubber gasket on the camera bottom, both of which must be removed to install the grip, can be easily lost. Perhaps if there were a small pocket or something on the grip that held these it would help - but in no way is this a big deal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful Used to add battery capacity for longer shoots such as time-lapse. It adds one battery and a vertical grip with controls for shooting. Good ergonomics. It does not appear to be as well-built as the X-T1. It is disappointing that you must remove the battery grip to replace the camera battery limiting it's use for long time-lapse exposures. I did purchase an optional AC adapter which should allow for using a larger capacity external battery but have not tested it yet. Still, it should be a useful addition for wedding or other session photographers needing a more versatile grip with some extended battery life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better support This Vertical grip by Fujifilm is a must have for the XT-1 shooter. It gives that extra confidence that you have a solid hold on the camera. Fujifilm also really put their thinking cap on when they designed this add on grip. It holds an extra battery that is drawn down first, before the battery in the camera. Making switching out to a fresh battery quick and simple. I have one on each of my two XT-1 bodies.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact battery grip I love my Fujifilm X-T1 and lenses. This just gives me a better handle on the camera when not using a tripod. This is especially true with the 50-140 zoom lens attached and hand holding the whole setup. I have a second-party arca-Swiss style horizontal and vertical bracket for my camera body without the battery grip, so I lose that bit of functionality with the battery grip. The flip side of that is that I have a lot more usable battery life now. I primarily have been shooting location portraits with my Nikon D4 and 70-200 2.8 lens. This Fujifilm x-T1 and grip with the XF50-140 2.8 lens gives me very favorable and pleasing images at half the weight and almost half the cost.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for portrait shots. Bulky A must have if you take a lot of portrait (orientation) photos. Includes all AE/AF and exposure controls available on camera body. The battery on the vertical grip acts as a backup. Does add weight to the X-T1 and makes it bulky. However given how easy it is to add on and remove, you can keep it always on or add it when you need it depending on how often you need it. That said if you purchased the X-T1 for portability, a camera to carry with you all the time, adding the vertical grip definitely diminishes that utility given the added bulk/weight. The build quality and performance are good.
