Vello BG-S2 overview

  • 1Description

The Vello BG-S2 Battery Grip is designed specifically for the Sony Alpha a7, a7R, and a7S cameras and holds one or two NP-FW50 batteries. With two batteries in the grip your shooting time is effectively doubled. The design of a battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way in which to hold your camera, especially in the vertical position.

The BG-S2 has an alternate shutter-release button to facilitate shooting when held vertically. In addition, the grip has an alternate AF/MF/AEL button, rear and main control dials, a C1 custom button, and a grip power On/Off switch. It is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip and firm curvature to further improve handling. The grip screws into the camera's tripod mount, and it has another tripod mount on its bottom for attaching to a camera support. A metal mount allows you to attach a camera strap to the BG-S2.

    Vello BG-S2 reviews

    BG-S2 Battery Grip for Sony Alpha a7, a7R, and a7S is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money and buy Sony grip. This grip made out of chip plastic that is why it's priced so low. It's ok up until you mount a plate for monopod or tripod. It loses it's actual shape so the batteries door won't close or it would be really hard to close it. When mounted on monopod with a little movement if feels like its about to break a part like fold in half off of camera. The battery holder is so tin that it won't last even a month if you use it twice a week like I do. Can't really complain because of the low price but I rather pay more for Sony grip than buy one of this every or every other month. No I wouldn't recumbent this grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value It works as advertised and was actually much higher quality than I had expected for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product worked great for me with Watson batteries. I tried it out this weekend and was pleased that it worked great for me.� I used my Watson brand batteries in it without any issues.� I took a 6 hour night time-lapse picture which took 710 pictures of 30 seconds each.�� By the time it finished, the camera message said batteries exhausted, but it did finish, and this was on Mt Hood in sub freezing temps.� I think if I were to use a battery grip full time, I might look at the Sony brand, but for my occasional use, this Vello brand filled my needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Cheap Quality I'll give this a 5 star review because it works as it should. It does the job of a battery grip and gives me longer shooting time. With that said, the build quality is super cheap and the plastic feels terrible. Since its under $$though I can't complain. Works for giving me longer battery life.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job....almost! Purchased item to provide additional battery life, greater fps, more balanced handling of camera (weight) and convince of portrait shooting without having to twist my wrist. In order to attain portrait shooting have to attach external cord from Grip to camera. (1) gets in the way, (2) can easily loose, (3) takes up slot on camera body. It is less expensive then the Sony brand, but if I were to do again would bite the bullet and get the Sony grip.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good grip not so great batteries This grip is awesome for vertical shots and adds comfort to the a series camera. The only down side is it is not compatible with any off brand replacement batteries. If you're planning on buying batteries make sure you buy Sony.
