Vello BG-P1 Overview

The BG-P1 Battery Grip from Vello is designed for use specifically with the Panasonic Lumix GH3 and GH4. The grip holds one DMW-BLF19 battery while another is in the camera, thereby effectively doubling your shooting time.

The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. The BG-P1 has an alternate shutter release button, AF/AE lock, white balance, ISO, EV, and Function buttons, plus front and rear command dials to facilitate shooting when held vertically. It is designed with anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling, and a metal mount for attaching a camera strap. Storage spots on the top of the grip help ensure that you won't lose the camera's rubber contact cover, or the grip's contact cover.

Just what I wanted

Great for taking vertical pictures. Makes it more comfortable and camera adjustments are at your fingertips. The fit is right on, even has built in storage for protective covers so they won’t get lost. Must uncouple unit to charge camera battery is a downside. Overall very satisfied.

Holds 1 battery

I'm not sure why but I expected this grip to hold 2 batteries. It's still a good grip

Great build and feel

I got this for my GH4 and it works perfectly. The only thing that I was not 100% happy about is that it only fits 1 battery in the grip (which I think is common to all the grips for GH4). You can still have one battery in the camera while using the grip so you are using 2 batteries. This is not too bad because of the great battery life of the Panasonic GH4 batteries. It's a bit of a pain when replacing the batteries because they are in different locations and you would need to remove the grip to replace the second one. This is the same as the original Panasonic grip.

Flimsy

I guess i receive a bad unit, its pretty flimsy and disconects a lot which mean the camera shut off, Only used it 3 or 4 times, and now is basically useless, even with a tripod, it loses contact with the camera. .

Great Accessory

Great addition to the GH4. It does add great battery life to the camera. The only thing I don't like about it is that you have to remove the entire battery grip in order to replace the battery in the camera. Since the mirrorless is so small there is really no way around this but it does add some time if you need to quickly replace a battery.

Excellent!

A must-have accessory

Nearly perfect accessory. Simply screw on to the 1/4” 20 receiver nut on the bottom of your GH5 or GH5S and you are ready to go. WARNING: if you are not using name brand PANASONIC batteries, then you will have issues. I made the mistake of attempting Watson batteries and the camera would randomly power cycle or cause the shutter to malfunction requiring me to turn my gh5 off. (Nothing was damaged)
