I have found the Vello battery grip for the Fujifilm X-T1 to be a great addition to the X-T1, all the functions work fine with the camera and it a great value for the price. I have purchased other Vello products and I find them to be of excellent quality and I would recommend their products to any interested buyer.

Good grip but sticky covering

This is a nice grip but the rubber covering is very sticky/tacky. Picks up dust and dirt like crazy. Too bad.. otherwise fine.

Good value, works well.

I bought this battery grip for the same reason most people do, better grip, and longer shooting time before changing batteries. I'm used to shooting with a DSLR, so the grip makes the smaller camera feel more normal for me without adding a lot of weight. So far it works fine, all the buttons and dials work as they should. I only gave it 4 stars because 5 would imply that it's as good as the Fujifilm version, when it's probably not.

I have a large hand and the main reason I purchased it was extend the grip area of the body. It did the job and allowed me to use a hand strap as well. The addition shoot time/frames between battery changes was sweet. It was a lot less expensive than the manufacturers unit and that is NICE!

Works perfectly

This grip works very well, perfectly suited for the XT-1. For this price it's totally worth it.

Better than the real Fuji Vertical grip, Heres why...

I bought the real FUJIFILM VERTICAL BATTERY GRIP X-T1 when I bought my Fuji X-T1 and I think I paid over $200 for it. After a few years it died. Internet search claims the problem is that a pin inside is bent. I was tempted to send it to Fujifilm for repair but past dealings with their repair department was a nightmare. And would probably cost me twice what I paid for the VELLO. I bought the Vello BG-F1 for about $59. Works great and priced right. Remember it only holds a second battery nothing else, no super technology, no moving parts. The VELLO is better than my Fuji Vertical Grip because the battery door closes and locks. A defect and constant problem in the original Fuji Grip made the battery door finicky and often it would not close, or lock and sometimes fly open. There are a number of videos online on how to fix the door problem with glue and tape, but its easier just to buy the VELLO.

Fantastic Product
