This Vello Accessory Kit for the Sony Alpha a77 II DSLR Camera from B&H is intended to enhance your use of that camera model while helping to ensure that its rear LCD is protected from damage. Included within this kit are a battery grip, a remote shutter release that can be used wirelessly, an LCD screen protector, a cap keeper to prevent the loss of your lens cap, and a battery pack that can be used as a replacement or spare for the Sony Alpha a77 II's included battery.
The Vello BG-S1 Battery Grip for Sony Alpha a77 & a77 II Digital Cameras is a battery grip designed for use specifically with those digital camera models, and accepts one or two batteries. With two batteries installed, your shooting time is effectively doubled. Moreover, when one battery is drained, it can be removed and recharged while you continue shooting with the other battery.
The design of this battery grip offers a comfortable and secure way to hold your DSLR, especially in the vertical position. It will reduce wrist and hand fatigue when shooting vertically for extended periods of time. The BG-S1 has an alternate shutter release button designed for ergonomic access when shooting vertically and anti-slip rubber gripping further improves handling. In addition, the BG-S1 has an alternate AF start button, smart teleconverter/focus magnifier, Fn/image rotation button, AEL/slow sync/image index button, AF/MF/enlarge button, exposure compensation buttons, a Multi selector, and a main dial. It also features a tripod socket, a strap lug for attaching a hand strap to the camera and a convenient internal slot to fit the camera's battery door when the grip is attached. A battery tray is included to house the batteries within the grip.
Trigger your camera's shutter wirelessly with the included FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release from Vello, a lightweight remote control system that will help you avoid unwanted camera movement. This 2.4 GHz model is compatible with Sony Multi-Terminal cameras and will work wired, or wirelessly up to 320', depending on your own needs and setup. This makes it useful for photographing wildlife or for macro and long exposures where it is necessary to eliminate any chance of camera shake.
The FreeWave system also has access to 16 channels for triggering multiple receivers and has an internal antenna that will be protected from any accidental damage. Multiple features are available for shooting, such as a four-second delay as well as multi-exposure and long exposure modes. The device also has a dual function release, enabling focus on half press and triggering the shutter release on a full press. Additionally, it has LED indicators to confirm pre-focus and exposure when in wireless mode, while the receiver and transmitter each run on two AAA batteries.
The Kenko LCD Monitor Protection Film for the Sony a77 II offers maximum protection against fingerprints, smudges, and other incidental damage to your camera's LCD monitor. The film features an anti-reflection coating to minimize flare while increasing viewing comfort and image transmission. The hard coating of this film is comprised of multiple layers and is easy to apply using a removable film applicator tab.
The Cap Keeper Plus Lens Cap Holder from Sensei prevents the loss of lens caps. An adhesive-backed disc secures the lens cap to the elastic leash which wraps around a lens barrel. With the lens cap removed from the lens while shooting, it hangs out of the way but is secure and within reach for easy retrieval. The Cap Keeper Plus is made with tough and extremely secure elastic.
The included lithium-ion battery pack is small, lightweight, and can be charged or discharged at any time without developing a memory effect.
