    Panasonic DMW-BGG1 reviews

    DMW-BGG1 Battery Grip for Lumix DMC-G85 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended Life, Easier to Go Hand-held We bought this unit to use with our G85. Works exactly like described gives piece of mind by extending battery life PLUS adds some nice heft (slight weight) that also dampens the inertia when using the G85 handheld. It's very easy to add/remove using the built-in rotating wheel that loosens or tightens the internal 1/4 20 to attach to the tripod mount on the underside of the G85. The electronic pins/coupler on the top of the unit (see photo) connects to the corresponding receiver on the bottom of the G85, so the G85 can talk to the unit to monitor battery level, receive power, etc. AFAIK the G85 is the only camera currently compatible with it. We'd definitely buy it again and if/when we buy another G85, will order it as well... IMO it's a must-have for the G85, it pairs that well. We leave ours attached all the time, but it's also very easy to add/remove if needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Excellent gadget. Makes shooting in portrait orientation easier and provides much needed battery life. Screw in seems flimsy; hope it holds up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes handling much easier, and doubles battery capacity! Fits perfectly, and the Grip is Very comfortable, but the main reason that I bought it was due to the poorly placed Tripod Mount on the G85. Of course this gives you two batteries instead of one, so if you're on a long shoot, or shooting Videos, you'll appreciate the (included) extra Battery. Don't lose the Rubber Seal, or Plastic Cap, for when you want to use just the body alone. The Gear to tighten the grip is only on the front, (not like the Nikon Grips) so make sure to tighten it thoroughly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for long shots away from AC power Lets me really utilize the unlimited video recording length on panasonic cameras. Can easily swap out batteries for during a long shoot.
