Olympus ECG-2 Overview

For improved ergonomics, add the Olympus ECG-2 External Metal Grip to your OM-D E-M5 Mark II. It not only provides a sturdier way to hold the camera, but also doubles as an Arca-type compatible L-bracket. With dovetail grooves on both the horizontal and vertical plates, you can quickly change between portrait and landscape modes.

Both the grip and vertical plate are removable, so that you can use the horizontal plate on its own as a long quick-release plate. The ECG-2 is designed to allow access to the camera's battery and side ports, and a hex key is included for the mounting screw and set screws.

question

Hi, is this grip compatible with the original EM5 (not the Mark II)? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Anonymous
No, that is only compatible with the E-M5 II.The only grip that works with the E-M5 is Olympus Power Battery Holder HLD-6, B&H # OLHLD6 MFR # V3281300U000. And it comes with a battery holder as well as a grip.

question

Does this metal grip screw into the base of the battery pack grip on the omd em5 II?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, this is an entirely different extended grip for the em5 mkII; it has a cut out in the bottom of the plate to allow access to the camera's battery compartment, but is not designed to integrate with the 2 piece combination battery pack external grip which Olympus also sells for both the em5 mk 1 and the em5 mkII

question

Can you use the cable release port with the grip attached & the camera mounted in portrait mode on an arca swiss head? i.e. Is there enough space to plug in the connector and route the cable out while still using the L-plate mount (when in vertical orientation)?
Asked by: Andy B.
This is obviously late, but for the record, you can mount the L-plate BACKWARDS, allowing access to the ports. The plate won't be centered on the focal plane, but it works and is adequately stable.
