Vello BG-S4 Overview

  • 1Description

The Vello BG-S4 Battery Grip is designed specifically for the Sony Alpha a6300 camera. The grip holds one or two NP-FW50 batteries which effectively doubles your shooting time when both batteries are installed. It works through the use of a dedicated battery adapter and the design of the grip provides a comfortable way to hold and shoot your camera in the vertical position. The BG-S4 also has a vertical-position shutter-release button for portrait orientation shooting which works through the use of an included Multi-Terminal cable. It even has an on/off switch that deactivates the shutter release when it is not needed, preventing accidentally release when performing activities such as shooting video.

The BG-S4 is designed with an anti-slip rubber grip to further improve handling. The battery 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-S4 for convenient carrying.

While designed to match the grip and design of the a6300, the BG-S4 is functionally compatible with the a6500 with slightly different ergonomics due to the a6500's larger grip.
Holds up to two NP-FW50 batteries, doubling the battery life for the Sony a6300.
Provides comfortable and secure handling when shooting in the vertical position, including a secondary shutter release button.
Features anti-slip rubber gripping and a securely locking battery chamber door.

    Vello BG-S4 Reviews

    BG-S4 Battery Grip for Sony Alpha a6300 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthwhile accessory It works as advertised, storing two batteries and providing an extra grip helping to stabilize the camera handheld for both portrait and landscape orientations. It also has its own exposure button which is convenient for portrait mode, also helping to maintain camera stability in use. Two precautions: the exposure button will not work unless the cord is thoroughly inserted into its receptacle in the camera; as well it will not work if the switch on the Vello is in the unlock position. The device must be locked. Because the accessory port on the camera must remain open during use, one wonders what this does to the weather-sealing properties of this camera - perhaps more necessary to be mindful of keeping the camera quite dry.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the money. Not great. Does not automatically switch to the second battery. I was hoping that both batteries would work simultaneously or switch when one is depleted. Not so. When the primary battery dies, the camera dies with it. Not a super big deal because I do not do video, but for those who do, I can see this being a problem. Other than that, it fits nicely and feels great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Bought this unit when 1st introduced, I am very pleased and it's not without flaws.Still testing its handling features and its value is great when a flash such as the Sony 43M is attached to the camera and you are shooting vertically. One must develop techniques for removing the batteries. I only use 32 and 64 gb SD cards in my camera, so detaching the camera is not frequent. It's a great product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Drains both batteries I've had this grip for a little over a year. I didn't use it until after the return period which is when I discovered that it causes both batteries inside to drain at a significant rate of speed. I've tried it on several occasions and unfortunately get the same results each time. One full battery will last longer in the camera than two in the grip using it as advertised.? It doesn't make sense. On the other hand, it does have a nice feel and offers excellent grip.. Just wish it did the whole "battery" part of the "battery grip".

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product for the price. quality was a pleasant surprise to me. for the price its well built. functions as it should with the cable attatched. ergonomics is excellent. really changes the dynamics of the small a6300 into a more stable and 'safe' feeling in your hands. attaches reasonably well, but make sure you tighten the bolt as hard as you can with your hands so it doesnt wobble.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Grip Superb fit and finish; perfect accompaniment for my Sony a6300. Build quality will make this a long-term investment. Reasonable price for the level of quality. Very much recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent gear I bought this thinking it was a waste of money but I had to try it and Im so glad I did, it gave the camera balance, body and the feel of a true dslr, is not without flaws like the sync cable on the side which to my sorprice is verry tight to the camera body and it has not been an issue, the other thing it reads each battery percentage individualy not as a one thats a bit confusing, its a bit of a hassle to remove the grip to take the memory card out and back in again , but for the rest is totally awesome.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth Buying The camera battery life is ridiculously short and almost needs additional battery reserves if you want a fair amount of shooting time. This is true even if every camera setting to save power is turned on. The battery grip also improves the camera (Sony a6300) handling for me. Unlike other similar products that I looked at, this battery back attaches solidly to the camera. There are no gaps between the camera and battery pack nor is there any movement. It feels like part of the camera. Yes, it is a bit inconvenient when removing the SD card, but worth the extra camera run time.
