Vello BG-P1 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Vello BG-P1 reviews

    BG-P1 Battery Grip for Panasonic Lumix GH3 and GH4 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Price. Not Strongest Mounting. This is a great price option and is great for hand hold video or photo use. With the tripod threads on the bottom being off center (it's to the one side) and the mounting design with the GH4 being not the strongest, there is some slight movement for tripod videography. On a low windy day, using a long lense, and/or using a slider, you will certainly pick up on camera shake if you are shooting video with this Item in conjunction with the GH4, mounted to a tripod. I baught this to add more grip to the very small GH4 and happy for that reason for hand hold shooting, however I wish I could have used this mounted to the tripod too and not have to take it off ever time I want to shoot on a tripod for a stable shot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds 1 battery I'm not sure why but I expected this grip to hold 2 batteries. It's still a good grip

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't perform for me. This a great idea but I couldn't get it to work properly for me. I attached to the camera, easy. Turned on and the controls functioned as they do on the camera but when I pressed the shutter button it told me to turn the camera off and back on. Did it also on the video. Item returned. Waiting for refund.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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. .
